Yesterday I gave you a taste of my ballsy predictions with a little first round action. Only Jesus knows if I will be right. I’d ask him myself, but we’re kind of on a ‘break’ right now.
So far, not too many shockers from the first two days of tournament basketball (St. Mary over Miami, South Alabama over Butler, #12 Nova over Clemson, and a few more). Will day two have more surprises?
A quick reminder, this is how I’m laying the predictions out this week:
- Monday: First Round Predictions
- Tuesday: Second Round Predictions
- Wednesday: Sweet 16 & Elite Eight Predictions
- Thursday: Final Four & Title Game Predictions
#8 Indiana over #1 North Carolina
I know what you’re going to say…a Duke fan knocking the Tar Heels out early. Bias prick! Over the last few weeks, I’ve been ready to hand the title to the Heels. I thought they were the best team all year long and they got even better after Lawson went down. Sometimes though, there are match ups that stand out to me and this is one that does. Three weeks ago, the Hoosiers were a top-ten team and a popular final four prediction…then Sampson got the boot. Since then, they’ve been sleepwalking. Something in my guts tells me that Indiana will come out motivated. With D.J. White being a senior and Gordan being a one-and-done, this is Indiana’s one shot. The second round game against Carolina is their title game. Don’t feel too bad Tar Heel fans, Psycho T will be back for his senior season and will lead them to the Final Four next year.

This week I will be giving you my NCAA Tournament Picks. However, I’m going to be an ass about it and only leak out a little bit at a time. If you’re looking for detailed reasoning and expert breakdowns, you’re on the wrong blog, buddy. Move along now. If you’re looking for help to win your tournament bracket, I would suggest stop reading now. I’ve never won a single tournament. These are just one man’s uneducated picks.
#1 North Carolina over #16 Some Team
Carolina will fall behind early, 2-0, but they’ll win by 44. The announcers remind us two dozen times that Tyler Hansbourgh plays tough.
#8 Indiana over #9 Arkansas
Without Coach Sampson, the Indiana ‘Gordan’s’ are 3-3. Pay no attention to the record behind the curtain, this team has just been playing out the season with little interest, just waiting for the tournament. The Razorbacks are fast, but the Hoosiers will win by ten.
