For the first time in a long time, I'm not doing a March Madness bracket. Haven't had time to pay much attention to college hoops, and I want to enjoy the games fro what they are, not based on who I guessed would win.
If you are still scratching your head over whom to pick, Nate Silver offers some help.
For what it's worth, Nate likes Florida, Michigan State, Arizona, and Louisville in the Final Four, with Louisville, Florida, and Arizona all within a percentage point or two of winning the whole thing.
I am looking forward to a really good tournament this year. No claer-cut favorite, some new faces in the Big Dance, and there are always lots of early upsets to keep things interesting. I'm flying to Louisville on Thursday, so I'll have something to keep me occupied on the plane for that long flight.
Let the games begin!
