TR Brackets 2013

Figured I'd start this as I started baseball. Last year's participants should get an email from Yahoo. Anyone else (and anyone who didn't get the Yahoo invite) needs to know this:

At the rate the top 5 keep getting beat I feel that this may be another Villanova-type year.

No. This one will actually require thought, unlike my usual method of filling it out in under 2 minutes and hoping for the best.

At the end I went with the 2 minute approach. No worries, as after the first weekend I will create the inevitable second chance brackets.

That was the FIRST thing that crossed my mind... but the defensive clinic they put on for 40 minutes was sweet lovemaking to my senses. Reminded me of Noland Richardson's 40 minutes of hell. I'm glad they didn't deflate after the injury. Go Cards all the way! :D

Actually, you need to worry about Michigan. If they lose to Syracuse, you can't lose no matter what happens between Louisville and Wichita State. If they do beat Syracuse, you need Louisville to win it all.

That said, the top Yahoo bracket has a perfect Final Four.

Others have a perfect final four as well, including the number 10 guy in overall leaders.

It's down to me and idchafee, very surprising considering I had New Mexico in the championship game. Go Michigan!

OMGURGOINGDOWN!!!

Me having Georgetown in the FInal 4 somewhat balances out your New Mexico pick. Then having Ohio State lose to friggin Witchita state. So yeah the two big Cinderella stories have really teamed up to gank my brackets....but not as badly as some others, it seems. :P
