My predictions for the NCAA tournament

One topic that will not be prominently featured in this blog is sports. But the annual basketball tournament is an exceptional event. When I lived in Kentucky I used to be quite good at predicting in the office pools. The tournament starts tomorrow, so herewith my forecast (text form - couldn't download an editable image of the brackets):

Sweet Sixteen: NC, Washington State, Louisville, Tennessee, Kansas, Villanova, Wisconsin, Davidson, Memphis, Michigan State, Marquette, Texas, UCLA, Western KY, Xavier, W. Virginia.

Elite Eight: NC, Louisville, Kansas, Wisconsin, Memphis, Texas, UCLA, Xavier

Final Four: North Carolina, Kansas, Memphis, UCLA.

Championship: Kansas to beat Memphis. Tiebreaker 155 points total in game.

Biggest upset: Davidson (10) over Georgetown (2)

Does anyone reading this blog really care about my predictions? Probably not. But I'm going to use this to illustrate a point about blogs and the internet when the tournament is completed.

  1. Are you impressed? 15 out of the Sweet Sixteen, 7 out of Elite 8, and correct thereafter? I set this up to illustrate the trickiness of the 'net, because blogs allow you to change original entries without revealing a revision date. As the tournament went along I just changed my wrong choices to correct ones to make my predictions look better. Remember this when reading a blog with investment advice etc...

    But the reverse irony is that on the original I had 3 of final 4 and was correct with Kansas over Memphis and within 11 points on tiebreaker. That would have won some pools for me in past years. Darn. Need to locate a pool next year.
