I’ve done it! After many attempts, I have buckled down and put together my NCAA March Madness tournament bracket. It was heart breaking for me not to have picked my two favourite NCAA college basketball teams to win it all this year (sorry Syracuse University and University of Michigan), but I will be cheering them on to win every game they have during this tournament as though I did pick for them to go all the of way!
Actually, I did two brackets, but my official bracket will be with University of Arizona Wildcats winning it all this year! I know, most people think it is University of Florida’s Gators’ turn at hoisting the Wooden NCAA National Championship trophy, but I’m just not sure it will happened this way. I have not ill-will towards the Gators, but I just can’t see the tournament going down this way.
In my back-up bracket, I chose my arch-rival school, the Michigan State Spartans, as the winners. I know! I totally turned my back on U of Michigan by picking them as my back-up winner, but they have a great team this year, and I have to tip my hat to their squad for beating my Wolverines last weekend during the finals of the Big 10 Tournament.
My picks to make it to the Final Four are: the Florida Gators (South) vs the Michigan State Spartans (East), and the Wichita State Shockers (MidWest) vs the Arizona Wildcats (West). In my primary bracket, I have the the Gators vs the Wildcats, and in my secondary bracket, I have the Spartans vs the Shockers.
So, Readers, there are my March Madness picks this year. I know there will be a Cinderella team that takes out some higher seeded teams, but that is part of the magic and fun of this tournament! If you are big NCAA college basketball fan like I am, you can’t wait for the tourney to begin. I hope your picks do well this year!
Until my next post, Readers!
