Honestly, what I think this week is that there aren’t enough hours in the day. Sorry for not posting until now. NCAA time gets a little crazy around here.
I’m going to go through how I filled out my bracket, but I have to say right away that I don’t feel good about it. One problem is I don’t have any No. 4 seeds winning. That’s going to come back to bite me.
I have Cornell beating Denver in the East Regional final. I’m going with the goaltender that’s going into the weekend hotter, and that’s Cornell’s Ben Scrivens.
I have Wisconsin beating Northern Michigan in the West Regional final. The Badgers showed how they can play against Denver last Saturday. Will it continue? We shall see.
I have North Dakota beating Boston College in the Northeast Regional final. Coin toss, really, if it comes down to these teams. But I do like how North Dakota looked last weekend.
I have Michigan beating Miami in the Midwest Regional final. I think it would be closer than the CCHA semifinal game between the teams, but there’s something intriguing about the Wolverines right now.
In Detroit, I have Wisconsin beating North Dakota for the title. Just a hunch.
But I’m fully expecting the whole thing to crumble within hours of the start of the tournament. That’s why my investment in this in monetary terms is zero.
