The Picks

I might as well get these out there just in case I actually end up doing well this year. I like Kansas a lot, and that'll probably be the downfall of my bracket. But check the defensive efficiency, man. I also like Pitt and UCLA in that region. If you go by efficiency margin/pythag, Memphis is the fourth-best team in Oakland behind the three aforementioned squads.

My love/hate relationship with LSU has them going to the Final Four in a couple of my brackets and being ousted early in others (like this one).

I very nearly took Xavier over Gonzaga but couldn't pull the trigger. Instead, I'll have SDSU take Morrison and the Matadors out in the second round.

Let the record show (or, uh, let this post be quietly deleted in early April)...
