It's the most wonderfullest time of the year. Time for the stinkin' Tournament!
First of all, congratulations to JJ Redick and Adam Morrison for sharing this year's 'Larry Bird Trophy For Certain Intangibles'
And before I get to my totally spot-on, can't miss picks, a big screw you as usual to Jay Bilas and Steve Lavin of ESPN. The two most shameless homers in all of sports broadcasting did not dissapoint as Jay spent half of the selection show crying about how Duke has the 'hardest' bracket (right before picking them to breeze through it), and then Linda Lavin enthusiastically predicts that some team called 'UCLA' will make it to the final four. Nice objectivity, douchebags.
Anyway, so as not to bore y'all with each and every picks, here's the upsets only;
First Round: Iona over LSU, Oral Roberts over Memphis, Bucknell over Arkansas, Kent State over Pittsburgh, Alabama over Marquette, Wisconsin over Arizona, Seton Hall over Wichita State, George Mason over MSU, UAB over Kentucky.
Second Round: Alabama over UCLA, Wisconsin over Villanova, George Mason over North Carolina, Washington over Illinois.
Sweet 16: Iowa over Texas, Alabama over Gonzaga, Florida over Ohio State.
Elite 8: Iowa over Duke, Kansas over Alabama, Tennessee over UConn, Florida over Boston College.
Final Four: Iowa over Kansas, Florida over Tennessee.
Final: Florida 65-61 over Iowa.
