|UConn's Kemba Walker helped me win my bracket last year.|
Every year, I participate in a fun "bragging rights" bracket with my friends from high school. Many of us don't communicate any other time of the year, but we always get together (virtually) for March Madness. And the smack talk clangs off rims like game-winning shots that could've been. Anyway, I won the bracket last year by putting my faith in UConn and Kemba Walker.
My 2012 Predictions
This year, since the University of Dayton did not make the tourney, I'm putting my faith in my Grandpa Brewer's favorite team: Kentucky. I mean, the guys on that team look like giants--even when they're playing against gigantic teams. The only way they won't win it all is if they get bored and lazy (and that often happens to overly talented teams in the tourney).
As I'm writing this post, teams are finishing up the round of 64. All but 3 of my Sweet 16 teams are still in it, which isn't too bad considering all the Friday upsets. The Missouri and Duke losses hurt my Elite 8 selections, but I've still got my Final 4 in tact.
Here's my Final 4:
- Ohio State
- Michigan State
- North Carolina
So yeah, I'm predicting half the Final 4 to be represented by the Big 10, but for neither team to make it to the championship game. Here's hoping I can repeat as a Crazy Llama champion.
