Tim Sullivan’s NCAA tournament bracket

first_imgFull disclosure: I am a fraud. Of the 68 teams in the NCAA Tournament, I have followed only two assiduously. I have seen 13 of the teams in person, maybe half of the field on television since I generally cede the remote control to women who would rather watch Downton Abbey.I have no more expertise about the Eastern Washington Eagles than I do about Etruscan relics. (In point of fact, I didn’t know Eastern Washington’s team was known as the Eagles until I found that fact through a Google search). I like Davidson coach Bob McKillop because he quotes Robert Browning and Michigan State coach Tom Izzo because he plays the accordion.I know just enough to be able to recognize Kentucky’s superiority and Louisville’s limitations and to know that anyone who would study my bracket in search of guidance would be a prime customer for a swampland salesman.Consider yourself warned.C-J Brackets Game | Louisville Courier JournalFinal Four: Kentucky, Duke, Arizona, Michigan StateNational Champion: KentuckyCinderella: Michigan StateBiggest Upset: Michigan State over VirginiaToughest Pick: Northern Iowa over Louisvillelast_img read more
