I have MTSU and Winthrop.

I can't believe I picked against Butler, but I always go with my first reaction.

It usually works out pretty well. But, my gut was all over FSU this year. So yeah.. I may need to get a gut adjustment.

I'm also not crazy about my Villanova pick. But, I wasn't sold on anyone else.

How many people are watching at work so I don't feel quite so guilty.

I think they may very well find their matchup with (likely) West Virginia more to their liking. Hate to say it, but I think ND is probably a Sweet 16 team this season -- at least.

Hope I'm wrong. Go Princeton.

I have ND going to the regional final and losing to Gonzaga. FWIW, I also have Michigan going to the Final Four facing the winner of Kentucky-Carolina with Villanova-Arizona in the other semi-final. Yet to decide who Michigan will face Since it's my own bracket, I don't have to worry about filling it out completely, Chances are my bracket will be completely busted by Sunday.

I was gonna pick NC-Wilmington over VA as an upset special...but didn't pull the trigger. Hope I don't regret that one. VA's offense is, well...ummm....offensive.
