If the time to make my picks hasn't passed...

Am I allowed to pick based on which team mascot I like best? Which schools I know someone at? The location I would most like to live? :)

I have friends who have beat their husbands at brackets using these strategies...I've also heard that in a study, monkeys did just as well as humans at picking teams.

ESPN had a front page poll yesterday concerning such strategies.  I voted for "most interesting city".

btw, as I type this two games have finished, and I missed 'em both. :(

Alright, how many of the final four did you pick correctly.  I picked two - OSU and UCONN.

I was lucky with three - Duke, Ct, Ok. St.

Even though I picked Ok. St. - Ct. looks pretty powerful.  How would Ok. St. match up with them?

Oklahoma State's achilles heel is a great big man in the middle.  They don't have one.  When they play other teams that do, i.e. BYU, they have trouble.  We will have to wait and see.  I know Eddie Sutton is a great coach and he is probably already working on a plan to neutralize Okafor.  

Other than that, OSU matches up well with UCONN.
