For two-plus weeks, sports fans the country over will be spoiled beyond recognition. March Madness is finally upon us. And if the NCAA Tournament plays out in a similar fashion to the past couple of years, the only thing one can reasonably expect is the unexpected. A weekend of thrilling conference tournament upsets – punctuated by first seeds Kentucky and North Carolina falling to the likes of Vanderbilt and Florida State – proved talent ensures nothing and everything is up for grabs.
I’m still in the process of filing out brackets, but at a glance, I like North Carolina, ‘Cuse, Michigan State and UConn (yup, UConn) to make the Final Four with UNC winning it all over State. I think Virginia, St. Bonaventure and Ohio University are going to sneak up on people. And I expect nearly all of my predictions to fall flat on their faces.
Who do you have in your Final Four? Which Goliath will be the first to fall? What mid-major will be the likeliest to bite your bracket in the ass?
