As Gus Johnson use to say while he called March Madness games on CBS, the slipper still fits. That is all I can say after the second round of the NCAA Tournament. I guess that is why its called March Madness because it does not matter what a team has done to this point in the season. All that matters is if a team can string together six wins in order to get a National Championship. With my second round predictions, I had 18 out of 32 correct. There were upsets such as: Norfolk St. over Missouri, Lehigh over Duke, Ohio over Michigan, and Xavier over Notre Dame (to name a few). Luckily, all my Final Four teams are still alive.
With the third round only moments away, I will predict every third round game and predict the winners. Let’s hope my picks are a little bit better this time around.
