The NCAA Brackets are Finally Out!
Current mood: delighted

a great weekend of conference playoff action, the teams are selected
and the NCAA division I men’s playoff brackets are ready!
again, things worked out so that a team with a losing record,
Wisconsin, made the big dance, er, skate. The story of the year
has to be Michigan, with a very young team ravaged by pro defectors,
picked pre-season to only manage fourth in their conference, going on
to be the overall 1 seed in the whole tournament. They begin
against Niagara in Albany NY on Friday.
Michigan State start in Colorado Springs as the 2 seed, against
Colorado College. Western teams dominate the field this year,
with 6 of the 16 teams being from the WCHA. The Frozen Four will
kick off April 10th in Denver, watch for it on ESPN.
in other news, some number of people are betting on another NCAA
championship tournament this month. This sort of folly is beyond
belief, as the other sport is the most arbitrary defense-free
contrivance in all of sport. One may as well bet on coin tosses -
there still a remote chance of something interesting happening, should
the coin land on edge.
