Wounded Brackets

first_imgHow does your NCAA bracket look now?  How many of the Final Four do you have left?  With all the upsets that took place early in the tournament, many brackets took the big hit early.  Only the 4 number 1 seeds survived without a hit.  My bracket was shot before they even played the Thursday night games.  I had lost one of my Final Four picks in game #3.  So much for my expertise.I think I now know the sure way to win an NCAA basketball pool when you have to pick all the games.  Decide before you start whether A-L schools will be your winners or M-Z teams will win.  That was the winner in a pool my friend was in last year.  The lady who won picked winners all through the tourney strictly on the teams position in the alphabet.  How about that for basketball knowledge?  Who needs the RPI, Top 50 wins, good wins, or bad losses to determine a winner!last_img read more
