March Madness

The NCAA Men's Tourney gets started tomorrow with a couple of play-in games but the real fun gets started on Thursday around Noon.  I need to be convinced that any team can give Kentucky a run for its money.  I hear ya...the Wildcats lost to Vanderbilt  in SEC Title what.   The loss might be a bigger  problem for the rest of the teams in the tournament.  The Wildcats are now mad.  Sunday's loss was Kentucky's 1st in 3 months.  Coach John Calipari is going to use the SEC Title game loss as motivation. He's telling his players the entire season will be a waste if they don't win the national title.  On paper, and for a majority of the season,  on the court the Wildcats have been the cream of the crop in college hoops.  That doesn't change with Sunday's loss to the Commodores.

I have Michigan State and Kansas playing in 1 National Semifinal while the other will feature Ohio State and Kentucky.  The Jayhawks and Wildcats move to the finals in New Orleans with Kentucky the overall winner.  My bracket has #1 seed North Carolina being knocked out in the Sweet 16 by Michigan and #1 Syracuse losing to Ohio State in the Elite 8. 

Let the madness begin.
