I was 11-5 on the second day of the NCAA tournament, which is just awful. But Holy Cross did hang with Southern Illinois for a while.
I’m 25-7 in the first round, which isn’t bad. All my Final 8 teams are alive and 15 of my Sweet 16. I foolishly thought Creighton would be this year’s George Mason.
Here’s what I am thinking for today:
Carolina over Michigan State (too deep)
Washington State over Vandy (no feel for this game)
Georgetown over BC (old Big East matchup)
Ohio State over Xavier (The X-men could keep it close)
Louisville over A&M (best game of the day)
Maryland over Butler (Big day for Straw’s kid)
Pitt over VCU (this could well be an upset)
UCLA over Indiana (love the UCLA guards)
Chien-Ming Wang, who so wants to fit in, is in the team’s NCAA pool. He asked me to explain the tournament to him after he pitched on Friday. His comment? “Nothing like that in Taiwan.”
Nope, nothing like it anywhere. The Wanger has UCLA winning it all, by the way. Not a bad choice.
