Massive bracket upsets

This year, March Madness is really living up to its name. It is driving everyone mad! All of the people that play office pools know exactly what I am talking about. Who is going to win now that the favorite schools like Kentucky, UNC, Stanford and Maryland are out of the big dance?

A lot of Philadelphia wants to know if St. Joseph’s has what it takes to win the National Championship. Their potential upcoming match-ups may cause a problem for the Hawks. That’s even if they can get past Chris Paul and the Wake Forest team. I believe that St. Joe’s has what it takes to make it to the Final Four. Watching them play against Texas Tech convinced me that they are for real. Many sports analysts say that they are too small and they can’t get rebounds. However, their backcourt makes up for any number of points from rebounds. If they continue to play the way they have been, they would be a force to be reckoned with.

If there had to be a team I wanted to win, it would have to be Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech has been my favorite college team since they had Stephon Marbury. They have always been in the mix one way or another. This year their chances of winning are just as good as any teams. They are a strong team and can turn up the heat in a game. They have a fast line-up and their guards are three dimensional. It is hard to have a good one on one match-up with them because they are strong and can breakdown zones.

Although Georgia Tech is my favorite team, I can’t put money down on them to win the whole thing. Especially since UConn is still in the tournament. I have a lot of money on the line and I am confident that I am going to win. I think UConn is the strongest team in the tournament and maybe in the entire NCAA. UConn is even better than Duke. I think it is safe to say that they are the hands down favorite in their division. With players like Emeka Okafor, Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva how could any person ever bet against them?
