NCAA Bracket Watch: On to the Sweet 16

My bracket is still in decent shape, but took a big hit after Georgetown’s ridiculous loss to the 10-seed, Davidson. I had Davidson beating in Gonzaga in the first round (and they barely did it), but I never thought in my wildest dreams they’d beat G-Town too. I had the Hoyas heading to the Final Four before losing to North Carolina. I would’ve served myself better if I put all No. 1 seeds in the Final Four, because they’ve all survived to the Sweet 16.

Speaking of UNC, they have looked great in their first two games, destroying Mt. St. Mary’s 113-74, then destroying Arkansas 108-77. Keep in mind both of these games were in regulation. Yeah, I hope they’re that good as they march to the Final Four.

My hate for Rick Pitino has come back to haunt me. I had Louisville losing in the 2nd round to Oklahoma, which isn’t that strong of a 6-seed. I was wary and considered changing the pick, but I didn’t and Louisville won 78-48. Now if they don’t advance further than the Sweet 16 I’ll be fine. But, if they beat Tennessee and North Carolina to get into the Final Four, then I’ll never forgive Pitino. Ever.
