Well, it doesn't look like my bracket is going to shape up very well this year.
It really never does, except maybe in 1997, when Arizona won the National Championship.
See, I'm more of a fan of Arizona than I am of selecting the upsets and winning a bracket pool. I can't bring myself to let that sport overtake my fandom of my Alma Mater.
The way I see it, if I DID decide to pick Purdue over Arizona, since UofA is having a really rocky season, then I couldn't bear to have them go all the way NOT having picked them to do so. So, I always pick them in my bracket to win the National Championship. I figure if they do win, then I win the bracket pool, because I picked them. I have no real interest in winning the bracket pool otherwise.
I think I forgot to tell the Wildcats that this was the Year of the Bramlett...
