Seriously cracking up right now! I am looking at my bracket as I am reading this post :) No idea who to pick. Ugh! And I almost always get burned by Duke! Grr! I want to take Kentucky just because, but part of me wants to just throw caution to the wind and pick solely based on which name I like better! lol! My husband and I are filling out brackets against each other and we are going to have our 3 year old little guy pick teams too jut for the fun of it. I am sure he will win! lol!
haha i love it. I'm not filling one out this year but I can totally see where your heads at. what if I stole your bracket?
I love how much you mentioned Iowa State. I'm hoping we do well in the bracket. Back 2 Back Big 12 Tournament Champions!!!
I am a KU fan and I have Kentucky & Duke in the final 2. It hurts to be me today.
Bahaha... I loved this... I should have wrote down all my thoughts as I was doing mine.
...and you nailed it once again. Seriously, I get so stressed when filling out brackets in leagues of people I actually know. Basketball is not my sport of choice, so my bracket is woeful already. Seriously though, where is Villanova?
As a Chapel Hill student, I must admit that I really hate your bracket but only because I really hate Duke. I trust your sports judgment and adore your blog and think you're awesome, though, so I'll let it slide.
Duke? Really?! UGH! I die a little on the inside.Go Cats!
...and somehow I ended up with Duke taking it all. I just couldn't pull myself away from them...and I don't like them AT. ALL.
Iowa State all the way! How can you not love a mascot that is a powerful force of nature?
I appreciate that you have WSU going against KU because that's what EVERYBODY here wants. Mostly because they don't play each other in the normal season.
I have the same two teams in the finals but have UK winning. They are all NBAers on one freakin team. It's almost not fair. However, I also wouldn't be surprised if they end up losing. It's been since 70's that Indiana went undefeated. Plus, I can go without hearing C-A-T-S Cats, Cats, Cats over and over again
I literally feel like I went through all of these emotions when trying to fill out my bracket! Thanks for not making me feel so crazy!
I'm for Duke...actually anyone but UK. I am praying for another Laettner moment
You put way more thought into yours than I did mine. I have Villanova beating Arizona in the end. As much as I want an SEC team to win it, I just can't get on the Kentucky bandwagon; they got by on some sketchy calls this season and that luck has to run out eventually
Can I just say that my thoughts were very similar when I filled my bracket out! Hahaha! I never do very good, but maybe this is my year! Ya right, that's never going to happen. :)
Still haven't filled mine out but all of those thoughts will be going through my mind. With two exceptions: 1 - no Duke because Duke sucks & 2 - Tennessee, can we get a successful season in basketball or football sometime in the next decade? I mean, the past 10 years have been brutal. Can we step it up a notch?
It's like the battle of evils. Kentucky or Duke. Which one is less of a soul-sucker. I hope they BOTH get knocked out first round. Let's go underdog surprise!
As an Iowa State fan, I approve of this process.
Great. This didn't help me with my bracket AT ALL. :-)
I always have Duke lose first-round b/c of personal beliefs (aka Duke Pukes)... some years it helps me, some years it kills me - oh well! ;)
Kentucky hasn't played anyone? Come on, Sarah, they killed Kansas (2 seed), beat Louisville twice (4 seed), UCLA, UNC, and any SEC team that's in the tournament this year. No denying their talent plus they have the man-power to withstand the tournament environment. Plus Duke always chokes ahem Lehigh & Mercer :)
I spent the least amount of time this year that I've ever spent filling out a bracket, so I'm not confident at all. Last year, of course, I felt very confident because I had my Florida boys going all the way (hey, Final 4 is still pretty good...). For the record, I have Duke losing to Iowa State.-HeatherI do what I want.
Duke burned me bad last year and I'm still mad at them. So I have Wisconsin winning it all. When they're on their A game, they are ON their A game. It just can't be Kentucky. Can't.
Seriously. My boyfriend keeps trying to convince me to fill out a bracket but hello we have all three Iowa teams playing this year and obviously I'm going to pick them, but let's be realistic, but I can't pick Duke and I hate Villanova simply for the fact that it sounds like a really shitty love movie starring Jennifer Lopez and ugh, I just can't do it this year.
Just letting you know I dropped by
Got almost the same Final Four but have Iowa St instead of Duke. Good to see that you got some 5-12 upsets.
So funny! Honestly, I've just stopped caring about my brackets and now essentially use my "fun" bracket as my actual bracket. Half the time it ends up doing pretty well. I tend to lean towards upsets and basically refuse to put certain teams beyond the first 2-3 rounds (coughkentuckydukecough). I also pick winners based on teams I just like. Makes it more fun for me and less pressure. (:
This is gold. One of these days I'm going back to picking by mascot, color, or people I know from said state... it's GOT to go better for me than picking Georgetown to win it all...Yep, I did that.
