Editor's Note--So my 9 year old is in 1st place in our "friends and family" bracket pool. As an 8 year old, the kid came in 3rd last year. Me thinks this is more than a fluke. Oh I'm in last in the pool, and I dont think I can get any more points. So I got that going for me. The kid's pick to win it all? SYRACUSE. What say you, Big D?!?--R.B.
Well Richie, that's some snappy pickin by your offspring there. You might want to ask for some tips next year.....Speaking of tips........
We are all well aware of the tough injury to Kevin Ware on Louisville last week. We like the support he is getting from well wishers. We DO NOT like that he is not playing in this game. They can use him. We loved the SHOCKERS of WICHITA vs Ohio State last week and saw how tough they can be. A lot of guys play too. That means Louisville's trapping, pressing defense might not wear them out. They've been just as warm as the Cardinals have too. 10.5 points? Thats too tempting. Take.
SYRACUSE is blowing through the competition. Michigan has a nice team but they better bring their shooting eyes. The guard play for the ORANGE has been extremely good too. Wrong team is favored here pal. Take the 2 points with the CUSE. Richie, your kid should be happy with that too.
So: WICHITA+10.5 vs Louisville and SYRACUSE+2 are our Final Four Selections. Check back Monday for the Finals Selections. By Monday too, we should have a nice picture of the Kentucky Derby hopefuls and pretenders. And unlike this #1 song from today in 1972, these horses WILL have names. Enjoy. God bless.
