Good morning everyone and welcome to a special Saturday edition of the blog. I feel a lot better about showing up to give you some 'Elite Eight' predictions after going 7-1 on my 'Sweet 16' predictions that I made here on Wednesday. Before the tournament began I let you know about ESPN's free bracket contest and the fact that they let you enter up to ten free brackets. I just discovered that the 3rd bracket that I turned in is sitting in the 97.2 percentile of all the brackets submitted, with 7 of my teams still alive in the 'Elite Eight'. Michigan State, the only team that tripped me up in my 'Sweet 16' predictions here for the blog, is the only team that is not alive in that bracket. This particular bracket has Kentucky beating North Carolina 74-72 in the final - we shall see... Here are my 'Elite Eight' predictions:
Louisville 71 Florida 65
Ohio State 79 Syracuse 73
Kentucky 82 Baylor 74
North Carolina 69 Kansas 61
I hope that you enjoy the 'Elite Eight' and I'll see you again on Monday with my ramble - have a great weekend!
