There is a billion dollars at stake. That’s like 10 or 12 times a million dollars. At least. Let’s just say it’s a LOT. Like graphing calculator type stuff. And, so I have spared no resource in preparing my NCAA March Madness bracket this year. Expert statisticians. Advanced metrics. Historical trends. Time travel. I took 50 jumpers. Wore a tank top.
And, no matter how improbable it may seem, know that I made these recommendations based on my own research and analysis and prior to this past week’s games. Just check the publication date. Totally ahead of time. Not after I watched all the games or specifically the Monday after all the games. Totally last Tuesday. Errr, I mean today. I know some of these are pretty dubious but I just have a really good feeling. Almost like I’ve seen them already.
So, I would like to make the following, way-ahead, totally legitimate picks:
Mercer over Duke. I mean nothing crazy here. Pretty popular upset choice.
Harvard over Cincinnati. Sure.
North Dakota State over Oklahoma. Uh huh.
Dayton over Ohio State. Duh.
Then Dayton over Syracuse. Double duh.
Stanford over Kansas. Obviously.
And, of course Tennessee in the Sweet 16. I’m not telling you anything you didn’t already know though.
So, I’m sure none of this will happen. But, if it does, it’s because I’m a total basketball genius.
