And I’m pretty sure Wisconsin, Kentucky, Gonzaga, Stanford, and Mississippi State feel the same way. I watched in shock as my bracket fell apart. My bracket is a heap of grayed out wrong picks. In the sweet sixteen round, I have exactly three match ups left from which to collect points. Three.
However, as I watched my bracket pick (for the game), Kentucky, fall to UAB, I found myself cheering for UAB. As I started to check myself, I realized, screw the bracket. This is why I love March Madness. Even the experts can’t predict who will ultimately win. UAB, Nevada, Alabama and Xavier know this– and are banking on it.
