Bracket, of course. (I'm terrible at these. Only read for laughs and to make yourself feel better.)

Free advice! Worth every penny!

Full disclaimer: I've barely had a chance to watch any hoops this year, am a homer, a Big East propagandist, and haven't done well in a pool since, well, the last time UCONN won the championship. And, prior to that, my greatest success was the prior UCONN championship. You would have to be a grade-A fool to take anything I say about college basketball as anything more than pie-eyed ravings.

That said, following are my Stone. Cold. Locks. (Need a punchy animation with some dramatic music for that.)

Lock: UCONN v. Duke in the West Regional Final. The West has been good to us historically, but I don't have a good feeling about the match up this year. Still, I'll take UCONN in my bracket.

Lock: St. John's out of the Southeast. That's right: St. John's, the 6. BYU is hamstrung. And, Florida is a 2?

Lock: Pitt will disappoint again. It won't be in the round of 64, but it will be Butler, or Wisconsin, or St. John's (see above). Pitt always blows it.

I freely admit I have no idea who will win it. I should probably pick Duke, but I can't, as you saw above. I am probably picking all the wrong Big East teams for reasons of subconscious bias. In addition to my "real" bracket, when I do some fun league ones, I will almost certainly have a different winner in each, and even the Final Fours are fungible. (Probably not the exact word I'm looking for there, but it's fun to say. "Fungible.")

  1. Quick check on my Stone. Cold. Locks.
    (1) Time will tell.
    (2) Not so stone, cold, or locked. Fail.
    (3) This was easy as taking candy from a baby: Pitt's collapse was as predictable as the sunrise, I just forgot to adjust for DST when filling out my brackets, had them falling in the next round.
