I'll admit I made two homer brackets, one for GT and one for Arkansas. (Dad went to Arkansas)
Tech can certainly play and while it will be incredibly difficult to win without one of our best players in the first weekend, it can still happen . We have a lot of grit and determination, so you know that they'll get after it. They also play team basketball at a high level which trumps hero ball in many matchups.
Arkansas certainly is a pretty darn good team as well and they could go all the way, but it is not the most likely outcome. (This pick certainly was looking really bad not too long ago with Arkansas being down by 14 in the first half before turning on the jets right before halftime.)
If someone had told you that a 2,4,5,6,7 and 8 seed would lose, could you have picked the right ones?
congrats to those who got 11 of 16 for the day1 lead.
Let's enjoy another wild day of march madness!
