NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament – 2012 edition
The month of March has arrived, and to way too many people that means only one thing: college basketball.
Specifically, March Madness and the quest for the championship.
People will spend days analyzing and making predictions, only to be shocked when the upsets occur. Personally, I could care less. While I don’t mind watching the occasional game on TV, basketball (any level), is just not my thing. If people want to spend time on the whole “bracketology” crap and everything associated with it, then that’s their problem.
So what happens when it’s time to fill out a bracket just for the fun of it, and you really don’t know anything about the teams this year? That’s where the coin comes into play.
Yes, folks, the infamous coin has returned. I had to switch coins this year as my normal one grew legs and walked away. Let’s hope that this alternate coin has a little bit better luck than the previous two coin predictions.
For the 2012 season, the coin has predicted Colorado, Memphis, Montana and Purdue as the Final Four teams. The University of Colorado is predicted to be the overall winner.
Just for the hell of it, I also filled out a bracket with my own predictions — all without watching a single game of college basketball this season.
My Final Four teams are Indiana, Michigan State, Syracuse and North Carolina. I’ve got the University of Indiana picked as the overall winner.
- No sound reasoning.
- No bias (If there was a bias, I’d have Duke, UNC and Ohio State all losing in the first round).
- No research into the teams.
Just predictions based on, well, nothing. There you go. Enjoy it.
