My 2017 NCAA Bracket

Well, hell – here’s my picks for the NCAA March Madness this year. 1 2

Who knows – perhaps I’ll do as well as back in 2015 when I was in the top 1%. Or, more than likely, I’ll end up like last year, a total meh.

LAST update at 9:44 AM CDT, 16 March 2017. Whew….

  1. Well, except I JUST NOW changed it to Kentucky beating UNC, and then winning the whole thing; will capture that and upload new PNG (DONE!). And there are still (roughly) 5 hours left to screw with it some more. Le sigh
  2. From KCUR, of all places, comes news of a KU professor’s new statistical model to predict the winner. Unsurprisingly, he has Villanova repeating. A good choice, normally, but it’s Kentucky’s year. A KU prof should know that; perhaps if he weren’t so busy asking people if they wanted fries with that in his part time job, he would have developed a better model, n’est-ce pas?

My 2015 NCAA Bracket

As a CU alumni, I know college football – both of national championship excellence and stink-the-place-up-like-Dan-Hawkins-coaching-at-Kansas 1 ‘quality’.

It is also a given that as a CU alumni I’ve only had stink-the-place-up-like-Colorado experience with collegiate basketball. 2

However that doesn’t matter a whit during March Madness.

Anyone and their dog can fill out a NCAA tournament bracket, confident in the knowledge that they, too, will never ever choose flawlessly. That in fact by the end of Round 2 their bracket will look like a gut-shot cowboy stranded in a parched desert, surrounded by slavering buzzards.

So despite the Buffet’s stinginess, despite my utter lack of first-hand expertise on the subject, and most assuredly despite the catcalls and other trolling this post may provoke, herewith follow my 2015 NCAA Bracket picks.

Go ahead: laugh it up, fuzzballs.

  1. What a nightmare that would be.
  2. CU’s run of the PAC-Something with its attendant Big Dance invite several years ago notwithstanding; that was, what – a once in a lifetime event?
