My NCAA Bracket Picks

It’s that time of the year, the time in which we all choose a bracket, and we are all wrong on what happens. Here are some choices from someone who did nothing but watch Alabama basketball all year.

South Region

First off, let me talk about how much of a travesty it is that they put Wichita State against VCU in the first round. Two of probably the best bracket busters, have to play each other in the first round. Other than that, Kentucky will run train until they meet Baylor/Duke, and that will be a challenge. I think Baylor comes out of this region, they are playing well, and I think Kentucky is overrated.
