Bracket this.


*Nov 20 - 00:05*

Below you’ll find my bracket for the NCAA tourney. I know some fans like to fill out several different brackets, but I sink or swim with the same picks in every pool I enter. (For amusement purposes only, of course.)

As I’m getting ready to promote Bet the House, I’ve already seen a few criticisms from folks saying it’s irresponsible for me to write a book ‘celebrating’ gambling. I don’t know if any of these people have actually read the book—-but either way, I’m wondering if they all refuse to participate in NCAA po0ls on moral grounds.

If you copy my selections and you do well, you’re welcome. If you tank, whoops! Sorry about that. I’ve done pretty well the last couple of years, but let’s face it, there’s a lot of luck involved in these things. I tried to pick a few key upsets, but you don’t want to get too clever. In the end, the cream usually rises.

Good luck!

    Richard….very risky picks, taking Xavier all the way to the elite 8..i like what you did with Butler though, because thats exactly what I did with them. And of course, I have my washington huskies beating marquette then beating new mexico, cuz the dawgs are hella good, they can beat anyone in the nation if they play up to their ability

    Why is it called “madness”? Know if any mental illness anti-defamation groups ever complained?

    I figure you have to take some chances, right? Good luck with your picks.

    What about the women’s tournament? Who do you pick to win it all? GO LADY VOLS!

    beastly picks. I had kent over kansas, without watching hardly any college hoops this yr. i watch basically only nba. i have a legion of cuse alum friends, and even they took kansas to make the finals. i wish i could have pulled the trigger on cuse to face kent, but georgetown looked too good against them. kent may not make it past west virginia.
