Predicting the NCAA Tournament

I am going to try and predict all 64 teams that will be making it into the tournament about a month and a half from now.

Why did you decide to post only 64 teams in your bracket when 65 make the tournament? Just curious, as the other sites have picked 65.

Thanks for the comment and for stopping by. You ask a very good question. The reason why I only chose 64 teams instead of 65 is because I do not include one of the teams that play in the play in game on the tuesday before the tourney starts on Thursday. I just chose to pick who I think are the 64 most deserving teams in the nation, and I do not consider the play in game. Maybe I should. I'll have to think about it.

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the blog.

of course like your website however you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts.
Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very
bothersome to tell the reality on the other hand I will certainly come back again.
