|Way to go out on a limb Mr. President.|
During my research I noticed a disturbing trend amongst so-called college basketball analysts and sports personalities. Everyone is playing it safe and taking the favorites. I couldn't even keep count with how many loud mouth personalities, who express their opinion on anything and everything daily, were taking the easy road and taking all four No. 1's to the Final Four. Hell, even the Commander in Chief, the most powerful man in the free world, President Obama, whose decisions affect millions of lives every single day couldn't stomach the risk of selecting anything other than chalk for the Final Four.
What is the fun in that people? That's boring as hell. Any idiot with a pen could minimize risk and pick all favorites throughout the bracket, but what would be the point? If I'm searching for expert opinions I'm not looking for the safe play. I'm looking for the guy with some insider information or some stats I've never heard of thats going to enlighten me about the 7 seed that may have what it takes to march it's way through the bracket. Or how about a tip on which favorite is most likely to get their dicks stomped on first? This isn't a frigen accounting lesson, loosen up and pick an upset or two for godsakes. When did all these talking heads grow vaginas?
So what does all this mean? It means CW winged it. Picked some schools based on personal biases, dated information from when I followed College Basketball more closely a few years ago (Gonzaga's still a top team right?), and conciously picked a few upsets for fun.
The results? A Final Four of OSU, Texas, Pitt, and Notre Dame, with OSU over Pitt in the finals. What's that sound? Oh yea, just CW...#Winning.
