When is the last time 5 freshmen looked this good during March Madness?? I despair. KY wiped out Louisville last night to my chagrin. My chagrin was mostly due to the fact that I didn't even have KY in the Elite 8. But my final 4 (Florida, Arizona, MSU and Louisville) were all in there.
Going into the Elite playoff on Thursday, I was in pretty good shape with 13 of the 16 teams (in addition to KY, I didn't have the remarkable Dayton, nor Tennessee). Two days of bball later and I am down to 5 of the 8 teams, with only Arizona and Wisconsin playing off... two of my picks. I now have one of my final 4 teams wiped out with the demise of Louisville at the hands of these 5 frosh.
Despite the fact that I want Florida to win the tourney, I actually picked MSU as the winner in my betting pool. I'm doing pretty well there, but that pick might lead to my demise. All 6 other participants have Florida. It was not a good time to be contrary.
More power to KY, they've given us some great basketball. On to Saturday!!!!!!!
