The basketball Buckeyes left Columbus today for New Orleans and their Final Four matchup on Saturday with the Kansas Jayhawks. Although there wasn’t a formal pep rally, the team buses drove through campus on their way to the airport and got an enthusiastic sendoff from the Buckeye faithful.
I saw this story on Yahoo and thought it was worth a post with the NCAA final four coming up this weekend. Diana Inch, a librarian from Salem, Oregon was the only one out of 3 million entrants to correctly pick the Final Four teams in this years tournament.
Hard to believe considering VCU had to win one of the play in games to even make it into the tournament. If you read the article there was a method to her madness.
She used the Cats & Dogs mascot approach to fill out her brackets, along with her favorite numbers 7 & 11 (I bet she is a craps player) and she favored some states over others based on the people she has met in her lifetime. You can see her bracket at the bottom of the article which includes some of the other upsets she picked.
This reminded me so much of our neighborhood football pool years ago when our sister Cathy would pick the NFL football games based on what city she would rather go shopping in and she would win more often then not.
So keep this in mind next year when you fill out your brackets and enjoy the games this weekend – by the way Diana picked Connecticut to win it all !
