I don't know... I might just be a basketball machine.

2008 Basketball Bracket Thing

It's time once again for Srah's Wholly Unknowledgeable Basketball Picks! You would think that after two non-consecutive years of doing this, I would start to develop some strategy, or get to know the playing styles of some of the teams that are in the tournament every year. Not so! I just pick the brackets. I don't watch the basketball, foo'. I have better things to do with my time, like... uh... well, very important things.

Once again, I present to you (after the jump), my bracket-picking strategy, in all its glory.

Picking MSU into the finals as a UM grad is sacrilege! You were doing well for a while with your sports posts, but I don't know...this one just did not meet expectations. I actually think Temple has a chance to upset them and they are from Philly, so - Go Owls!

"Cornell: Ever heard of it?" LOL

My dad would be ashamed if I let Notre Dame succeed in anything.

Meh. I was taught, growing up, that you always cheer for your conference. Which I can do, except for Ohio State.

It's a good thing U-M is so terrible at basketball. I don't know what I'd do if they made it in one year and were up against Gonzaga.

I fully support having Austin Peay advance. The more games they play, the more chances we will have to hear their fans chant "Let's go Peay!"

I'm glad Texas A&M made it so far.

I wonder who's responsible for THAT!

We are watching basketball all weekend! No cable car rides with seals while eating rice-a-roni.

I can't believe you picked MSU!!! I was taught that OSU ranks first on the hate scale. Followed by Notre Dame. And then you just can't cheer for MSU...perhaps you lived in the sheltered Ann Arbor world away from all the really really really annoying MSU fans/alums.

FYI the star at Kansas state is named Michael Beasley...I'm surprised you didn't throw that in there.

I couldn't cheer for Michigan State in hockey or football, but I don't care enough about basketball to feel one way or the other.

gravatar srah - March 18, 2008 - 1:55 PM -

That would require knowing things about actual basketball players! I am just impressed with my vast amounts of knowledge on such subjects as What Teams Sound Like They Might Be Good At Basketball and What Teams Are Ranked Higher Than Others!

T-bone wants me to be the Kent State mascot: the Golden Flasher.

Hopefully mascotting pays well, because you'd be fired from your professoring job!

Yeah I have no idea how my pick is going to go this year, I don't follow college hoops at all. Whoops.

I'm not very good with brackets either. I just don't follow the games that closely to know what I'm talking about. Sad, I know.

gravatar srah - March 19, 2008 - 11:11 AM -

I never worry about anything as frivolous as "knowing what I'm talking about."

gravatar chris - March 27, 2008 - 1:47 PM -

I think your bracket might be busted.

gravatar srah - March 27, 2008 - 2:16 PM -

My new strategy is to come in last.
