Okay, boys. This is the moment (okay, one of the key moments) we’ve been waiting for. It’s the opportunity to fill out those doggone brackets and figure out who’s going to the Final Four, and more specifically, who’s gonna claim that chan’ship. We’re gonna play “closest to the pin”, cuz nobody’s gonna ace this quiz. However, the following list (Wally’s picks) might be the answer key y’all need to win the office pool. If not, feel free to point out the flaws by submitting your own:
Final Four: Florida vs UCLA, Georgetown vs Texas A&M
Terrific Two: Florida vs Georgetown
Although I hate to say it, I just can’t see anybody dethroning the Gators this year. The have probably the most talented and experienced starting 5 … and they just happen to be the exact same group that won last year. They came back to win it all again, and Billy Donovan is a damn good coach … he has ’em hungry again after a brief slump. They TRAMPLED SEC tourney foes and have put their game face on. Look out!
The real question is who will come in second and/or which top seeds don’t make it to the F4. I’m thinking Carolina falls earlier than expected in a really tough region, Kansas succumbs to UCLA’s home court advantage out west, and Ohio State’s youth costs them at an inopportune time. Wouldn’t it be great to see the Aggies go all the way???? (In my dreams, Notre Dame goes all the way … and then I wake up and go to work).
Good luck with your picks (and ya better not ignore the major hints given here).
