How are your brackets heading into the Sweet 16? Mine is doing fine, thank you very much.
No, I didn't have Michigan State winning it all or even making the Final Four, but I did not see them losing in the first round to Middle Tennessee. WOW!
For that one great call that I made, I did pick West Virginia to make the Final Four. Ooops!!! That didn't work out so well as they lost in the first round to Stephen F. Austin. WHO? The Lumberjacks proved, they can play some basketball as they pushed Notre Dame to the limit in the 2nd round as well.
Credit to SFA for pulling one of the big shockers of the first round along with Middle Tennessee, Yale, Arkansas Little Rock, and Northern Iowa.
Speaking of Northern Iowa, what a collapse in that 2nd round game as they blew a 12 point lead in 35 seconds to Texas A&M and eventually lost in double overtime.
After a crazy, unpredictable regular season, you have to feel like this tournament would be just the same and so far, it has NOT DISAPPOINTED.
Now on to the Sweet 16 where the ACC has 6 teams. The most ever for one conference in this round. That is making quite a statement. But my question is, how many make it to the Final Four. I originally picked Miami and Virginia to make it and I am going to stick with those 2 as the only ones to make it from the league.
I feel Duke, Syracuse, and North Carolina will lose in the round of 16. Notre Dame will lose in the Elite 8 to Indiana.
I originally picked Oklahoma and Virginia to meet in the title game with the Cavaliers winning it all in the big game and I am sticking with that pick.
Bottom line, it is getting good now and it all gets started back up tomorrow night.
I can't wait!!!
