march madness 2006

Well, I’ve made my picks over at our Yahoo! Fantasy group, and I’m pretty pumped up for this years mayhem. I am pretty upset with Carolina getting picked as a 3-seed and having to travel to Dayton, Ohio for their games. I think that looking at Carolina’s strength of schedule and their tenocious play in the ACC tournament, UNC and Tennessee should’ve been swapped in their bracket, giving Carolina the 2-seed and allowing them “home court” advantage in Greensboro. Oh well though, I don’t get paid to make these sort of choices.

An interesting point to note is that right now, the majority of folks participating in the Yahoo! Fantasy Pick’em have Carolina picked for the Final Four, edging out Texas by one-half of 1%. I’ll keep my eye on the news and do some more research to make sure I don’t want to change any picks. I’m ready for tip-off of the play-in game though, so that we can officially say the Madness has stared.
