I tell my students all the time… ignore the outliers.
After all the upsets and crazy buzzer-beater endings what did we end up with? Arguably the best two teams playing each other.
Well, I’ll admit I’ve got a selfish reason to see Gonzaga finish off its perfect season.
My bracket was busted long ago, so I’m not winning any big contests or anything, just the possibility of winning a small contest in my own home. That would be me versus the missus, who has a narrow lead on me going into the final. She’s got Baylor, I’ve got Gonzaga. See where this is going? This one’s for all the marbles.
No money, just 11 months of bragging rights.
And oh boy that’s worth about a billion dollars right there.
