First, some apologies are in order. The past two years we've had an NCAA Tournament bracket over here and this year I just didn't get around to setting one up.
To make up for it (okay, it really doesn't make up for it at all, but just go with it), I'd like to hear who you've got in your other brackets out there. Yes, I realize we're a little late here, so give us your honesty if you had Iowa State, Baylor, or SMU making a FInal Four run. This was the first time in I don't know how many years that I didn't get in a pool. I don't know if it was Pitt being left out or whatever, but my interest level was just way down. Part of it was changing jobs and going from an atmosphere of having a huge contest to one that has none.
I usually spend about two hours putting my bracket together (most of the time, in vain, of course) but this year, literally completed one in like three minutes. My picks? Gonzaga vs. Arizona with the Zags winning. This is exactly the type of irresponsible bracket behavior that happens when you throw together a bracket with little thought, people. My only two pieces of insight? I think Kentucky could very well lose and think Gonzaga has a fairly convenient path.
With that in mind, who's in your Final Four and your champion this year?
