VCU And Butler

I've been informed that after the results of this weekend in my bracketology license has been officially suspended. I have no teams in the Final Four and my so called championship game (Ohio St. vs Kansas) is nothing more than wishful thinking. True indeed my bracket looks like Stevie Wonder put it together and not Cleavie Wonder, but cut a guy some slack! I'm sorry I wasn't clairvoyant enough to pick VCU and Butler to battle for a spot in the national championship game. Forgive me for not being one of the two people on planet earth that picked that match up. I guess the last 25 years of flawless prognostication doesn't count for anything these days. Oh well, at least Young Sam Rothstein is back to his winning ways. Fridays 2 team parlay (Butler +5 and UNC -4 1/2) came off without a hitch. Final Four picks will be announced on Thursday. Here are some observations from the weekend. As if they needed anymore help recruiting McDonald's All Americans, Jay-Z went to the Kentucky locker room on Sunday to congratulate the Wildcats on their Final Four Appearance. No wonder the Huskies keep losing top recruits to these guys. Tiger Woods need his old life back. I'm not condoning the infidelity aspect of it, but clearly Tiger is not going to get back to his winning ways with this current lifestyle. On Sunday he finished 29th at a tournament he's won 6 times in the past. The Barry Bonds perjury trial is more about embarrassing the home run king than it is about justice. The prosecution is trying to make a compelling argument with no physical evidence and no credible witnesses. We'll see what the jury thinks. If Stanford and Tennessee win their games tonight the women's Final Four will be comprised of all #1 seeds. By all accounts UConn should win the national championship again, but Baylor's Brittney Griner is capable of putting up 40 and 10 if you're not careful. We'll see if she can stand in the way of history.


  1. This has been one the strangest tournaments I’ve ever seen. VCU’s win sets up a historic game with Butler, two unranked teams in Final Four game. This occurrence says a lot about college basketball today, anyone can win it all.

  2. Thanks for the read. I'm absolutely speechless. No Ohio St. or Kansas in the Final Four? Very strange. Like you said, anything is possible.
