Louisville – St. Louis
Is it ok to root for Luke Hancock? Why did he leave? Why won’t you accept my friend requests? God damn you’re so deceptively athletic, I can’t pick against you. EVER.
Middle Tenn St. – Creighton
Go mid-majors go! Remember when George Mason was that team all BCS bubble school fans hated? This year it’s definitely MTSU.
Wichita St. – Wisconsin
Wow seems like ages ago when Mason beat Wichita State to not only get into the big dance but then advance to Elite Eight. Eh, I’ll guess I’ll pick them to hand an overrated #1 seed an upset.
New Mexico – Ohio State
I shouldn’t pick Ohio State to go this far because I should despise them. But every time I watch them play I say “oh that’s what it’s like to have a true point guard who runs an offense efficiently and actually plays defense.” Touche Buckeyes touche. Also them New Mexico boys ain’t bad. They did score eight points in the last 30-seconds against Mason earlier this year.
Kansas – VCU
God dammit, how is VCU a #5 seed?!? If I pick them I feel I will disgrace the Mason nation and if I don’t I know they will somehow make the Final Four again. If have to hear Jim Nance talk more about “Havoc” I might have to kill myself. Ah screw it.
Indiana – Syracuse
Georgetown won’t make it this far so IU-Orange it is, they always kill my bracket, not this year Hoyas! Go Florida Gulf State!
Butler – Miami (FL)
I knew it I knew it I knew it. Coach L come back to Fairfax! If I don’t pick Miami they will win the national championship won’t they?!?! How can I pick against them, I know damn well that scramble defense is going to eat the East region alive. Remember when Shane Larkin came to Mason Madness?? (sobs). Kill me now, get ready for Larranga’s million interviews this week comparing each win to 2005-2006.
Final Four picks:
Louisville – Ohio State
Luke, I just want you to be happy. I can’t quit you. Wait, I mean good luck, remember Peyton Siva is faster than you down the court! By the way I noticed you changed your phone number, no biggie, I know your probably busy with practices and stuff. Text me!
VCU – Miami (FL)
Oh perfect. Either way I’m pissed. Havoc once again meets scramble. Larranaga will win and will go on to say this is the best program he’s ever been around. Sticking it to Tom O’Connor and rightfully so. During the game their will be so many George Mason and CAA references that you mute the TV five minutes in and make the move to hard liquor.
Happ March Madness!
