Toni: No method to my madness


The last time I filled out a bracket, I was in seventh grade. I knew just as much about basketball as I do now.

Practically nothing.

Besides soccer, I think basketball may be one of my least favorite sports to watch. But, I decided to fill out a bracket this year anyways, even though I basically have no clue what I’m doing.

Somehow, I ended up with Creighton in the Elite Eight. Do I really think that is going to happen? Not really. (Sorry Jays) I do, however, have a feeling both Nebraska and Creighton will make it through their first games and play each other. Or at least I hope that’s what happens because it’d be really exciting for us Nebraskans.

Honestly, there’s no real reason for my choices. Some teams were chosen for their ranking, some were chosen because they were more familiar than the other team and some were chosen based off a gut feeling.

I would really just love to see a good upset. I’d like to see a team who everyone thinks will be out of the tournament after one game go all the way to the end and win.
