Bracket Optimism

March 17, 2011

The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament begins this afternoon.  Part of what makes this one of the most popular sporting events in addition to the potential for a big upset is that everyone and their grandma has a little skin in the game. 

I am no exception this year and made my picks yesterday.  The only regular season college basketball games I watch involve the ‘Noles so I relied on what I head on sports radio to make my picks.  My Final Four consists of Ohio State, San Diego State, Kansas and Florida with Kansas edging the Buckeyes in the final. 

Although I feel pretty confident in my picks I am sure that by the time the Final Four rolls around it will have more red ink than one of my 5th grade spelling tests.  How I think things will play out usually are not the way things do turn out.  It would be great to win my pool this year but if I don’t at least I’ll only be out $5.
