Yes, March Madness has begun. And with the NCAA Tournament comes the brackets. And with the brackets comes the feeling of hope, frustration and utter stupidity as my brackets fall by the wayside. So I’ve given up trying to pretend I know enough about all the teams to make “educated” picks. So, here’s my final four from my first bracket, the, what I hope, is the more realistic bracket then my second one.

Wisconsin, Michigan State, North Carolina and Baylor.

Yes, I do have another bracket but I’ll wait to reveal that one until late tonight. That was more of a fun one where I used different methods people told me they used to pick my bracket. Stay tuned.
