Yikes! The first quarter of the first game of the first round of the NCAA basketball tournament is almost over! Finally finished my last picks for the first round!
I don’t really know why I bothered writing this one. Instead, I should just type in really big letters:
I PICK KANSAS
Not gonna lie, I thought about putting “My Pick: Kansas” for every matchup…….
But I didn’t.
Here are my real picks for the MidWest Region
1 Kansas vs. 16 Lehigh
My Pick: Kansas
8 UNLV vs. 9 N. Iowa (UNI)
My Pick: UNI
Don’t get me wrong, I love Las Vegas! But, three of the most amazing and fascinating people I know are from Iowa. And they are all very hot. Floor it, UNI!
5 Michigan State vs. 12 New Mexico State
My Pick: MSU
They the Cinderella story from last year’s tourney, and you know I’m a sucker for Cinderella stories. I didn’t even mind that they beat my team! Plus, Senior Correspondent Erik is a diehard Spartan fan and since I’m going to his house to watch the game….I think I better Go Green! Go White! And I can’t wait for a KU/MSU rematch!
4 Maryland vs. 13 Houston
My Pick: Maryland
I am obsessed with Maryland lately, especially since I went there for my neice’s wedding and she just moved up there. Athough I would like to make a plea for them to change their names from the Terrapins. I mean come on. It’s a freaking turtle!
6 Tennessee vs. 11 San Diego State
My Pick: Tennessee
Because my best friend was raised there. And Chris Daughtry’s “Tennessee Line” is my fave song.
3 Georgetown vs. 14 Ohio
My Pick: G’town
Because I hate the state of Ohio.
7 Oklahoma State vs. 10 Georgia Tech
My Pick: Georgia Tech
I have no idea why, I just felt compelled to pick them. I think I’ve been brainwashed by my Twitter friends.
2 Ohio State vs. 15 UC Santa Barbara
My Pick: Ohio State
Okay so when I say I hate all things Ohio, the exception is Ohio State. And that is only because my roommate lives and breathes Ohio State during football season. I don’t just think I’ve been brainwashed by him; I know I have been. And I’m looking down the bracket and thinking, hmmm…. next week his team could take on my team….. that could be very, very interesting.
My Pick: Kansas
