togd brackets


here is the updated bracket for the mens ncaa basketball championship from ncaa.com
growing up i fell in love with basketball by default
my sports were baseball where i mainly pitched and while not pitching i played first base
i started little league at 10 yrs old and played until i was 15 years old
and football where i always played quarterback. i started in the 6 grade playing football until the 9th grade
i played basketball to fill in the time between football and baseball

in the mid year of my 9th grade we moved to a small town that only had basketball
i played basketball full time all through high school and played intramural basketball or city basketball for another 25 years

so i learned to love basketball
i have watched high school basketball and college basketball and nba basketball
both mens and womens

i even coached youth basketball for several years at the 10-12 year level
i never coached girls basketball

when my younger son played i coached a spring summer team for a few years

so i learned to love basketball

each year my wife she and i do our brackets
she commonly picks the winners by their mascots or their team names or for some other reason unrelated to basketball skills
sometimes she does better than others do

so we are down to the sweet 16
that means there are 16 teams left
then there will be 8 teams
then there will be the final four teams
then there will be the final two games for the championship game on april 3

she has 5 teams left
alabama houston texas gonzaga ucla

i have 6 teams left
alabama houston miami texas ucla connecticut 

she has 3 final four teams left
texas alababama ucla

i have 2 final four teams left
alabama texas

i try to pick the ones that i think have the best chance to win with some home cooking picking
my favorite team is texas since we lived there for over 30 years
its arkansas since i grew up there and lived there 10 years after college
its ucsb or university of california at santa barbara since we live here now
i also follow them during the season through the local media
i like the underdogs teams that arent suppose to win like fdu farleigh dickinson  or furman 
i like it when the patriot league teams do well 
they dont offer scholarships
the prime example is princeton
they have ruined many a big name schools season in the tournament
this year is no different
the knocked off arizona and missouri
they made it to the sweet 16

there are only two #1 teams left
alabama and houston

purdue a #1 lost in the first game to #16 fdu
when that happened there were no prefect ballots left in the espn bracket pool

there are only two #2 teams left
texas and ucla

so looking at the 16 teams left 
here are the teams im rooting for

no im not in a pool
i just bracket for the fun of it

my goal is to not have my wife she to beat me
