Thanks Rick Barnes and Texas for making me look like an utter fool for devoting an entire post about how you’d actually win an NCAA Tournament game. My mistake. You strung me along there for a while and had me believing that you’d be the ones getting slaughtered by Kentucky instead of Wake Forest
But no, you did exactly what you’ve done all seasons. A completely nonsensical substitution strategy. Terrible free throw shooting. Absolutely zero rebounding presence.
I may have bitten off a bit more than I could chew by saying I’d preview each region in the NCAA tourney. That plan just isn’t going to jive with my spring break plans. There simply isn’t enough time. So I’ll save you a lot of time, and just give the obligatory Texas post, considering I’m the Daily Texan sports editor and all.
Tired of Andy Katz/Jay Bilas/Joe Lunardi telling you who to pick in your bracket? Fear not, here’s Blake Hurtik to give you the same advice, but in a completely different way that focuses not so much on the “players” and “strategy” but on the all-important “intangibles.”
Here are my picks for the 2010 NCAA tournament with my bullet-proof reasoning. We’ll start with the Midwest and work our way through over the next day or so.
