NCAA Tournament Preview

Well, just like last year, I’m predicting that Loyola Chicago won’t make the Final Four.  But I’ll probably be wrong again somehow…….. Anyway, here are some thoughts about the NCAA tournament from a guy who hasn’t paid attention all year until last week.

Here is how I CURRENTLY rank the tournament teams.  This is based on heavily weighting recent performances of teams.  I’ll have more later, but for now I hope Harrel enjoys these.  Now I have to do “real work”……..
