Bracketology


Patrick and I chose our winner. 

We used a really scientific method when deciding all the other games.  Basically, it was about the weather in the particular region of the school, or whatever name I said last when asking Patrick.  Belmont is the name of a pool we go to so that weighed heavily on the decision in the Western conference.   Florida made it far in the Southern and Eastern conferences.  I think Michigan State made it in the Midwest, only because Patrick is quite sure that he will be celebrating wildly when they go head to head with their rival and all his favorite MI players (Trey Burke, Nik Stauskas, Mitch McGary) dunk like crazy.  I asked him, "Why are you sure Michigan can beat Michigan State?"  He said, "Just because I like Michigan and they are the best team ever.  And Uncle John is our cousin (?) and he's the best coach ever."  I'll second that.
Go Michigan!

  1. I love how everyone has their favorites and work them into winners. At our house we have it down to Iowa State against the dreaded Kansas. We would love to see that matchup and Iowa State win. This is such a fun time of year!

  2. I would love to see an MSU and Michigan matchup, but I am a Spartan alumn! My older daughter is a u of m alum and my younger daughter is currently a student at MSU. Fun times at our house during March Madness this year :-)

  3. Sorry, I have to disagree. KU (Kansas)is going all the way! If it were up to our second son, K State would go all the way, but the rest of the family knows that could never happen ;-).

    I love March Madness - the games are so exciting to watch and usually come down to the last seconds.

  10. Hoo Hoo Hoosiers!!! (Even though my bracket says Kansas!)
    Love March Madness, and miss living in Indiana where EVERYONE has a bracket and it's all we talk about for a few weeks. Now in Atlanta and none of my students even knew what a bracket is. ???

  12. Well done on your picks. I feel like we (as Kansas fans) should apologize for our cheap shot player, Elijiah Johnson tonight - very embarrassing to watch. If FGC loses, I'll definitely root for Michigan - they deserve it. :)
