Well, Duke is no longer part of the tournament so most of the brakets in the world just took a hit. I still have a chance, but not as much as before. I was looking at some of the percentages and it was pretty fascinating. My wife has managed to get just 7.4% of the games correct. She asked me when she was filling it out if she could name it “Nathan’s Picks” and now I really want to change it because I don’t want my son’s first ever NCAA bracket to be so bad. I really think we could have asked him to kick once for yes and twice for no and come up with a better number. I guess Meredith’s dominating streak is over.
Of course I can’t really talk either. The first bracket that I filled out isn’t much better. I guess next year it will help if I actually watch a basketball game or two before March. With Auburn playing poorly college ball was hard for me this year. So in the words of every sports fan, “Maybe next year…”
