Welcome back Madness.
Admittedly, this post would have been far more fun to write Monday. The brackets are freshly out and I love printing out one and writing in my bracket before entering them online in various bracket challenges. Sadly, bad news hit Syracuse fans as Fab Melo has been ruled ineligible for the duration of this year's NCAA Tournament.
Either way we press on. My bracket is listed above. The commentary is the usual stuff you've seen from me the past few brackets I've posted. You'll see the corrections I've made after the Melo news, as well as the general idea of what I had listed before the news. Interesting things of note include Harvard over Vandy in the first round, UConn winning their 8/9 match up, Mizzou making the Final 4, and other funny comments. Below is John's bracket that he declined to correct even after the Melo announcement. It was a combination of laziness and wishful hoping. Enjoy the viewing and make fun of us later for it.
John will be present at the first and second round in Pittsburgh for the Orange, and we'll both hopefully be in Boston if the team makes it that far. I'll be back shortly with our preview for Syracuse's first round match versus UNC Asheville. We're forgoing a BET wrap up because as we all saw we had a nice game against UConn, and Cincinnati just shot the hell out of the ball, only to lose in an awful Championship game. Ah well. The Big East Tournament was fun while it lasted.
