Rick - It will be interesting if anyone can beat Lizee's team. ( Hi Liz )My Villanova Wildcats had a good season. I'm so nervous!! I was listening to ESPN and they were saying 3 teams have bad history of exiting the tourney quickly - Nova, Gonzaga and Notre Dame. It would be nice to break the curse there. I also agree with some of the vibe out there that Temple may have been snubbed for schools with big football programs. Maybe I'm bias, being from Philly and an alumni.
ESPN was also saying Kentucky is in the easiest division, which comes with such a great record. Nova's first game against Lafayette is interesting - their coach was a former Nova player-he visits frequently, knows the ins and outs of the team and is a good friend of Coach Jay Wright. They both wish they weren't playing each other.
Our second potential game is either North Carolina State who beat Duke this year or LSU who lost to Kentucky by only 2 points!! WOW! I'm hoping to make it pass this round and go a little deeper of course. Fingers crossed...
Not sure if anyone ever follows Nate Silver, he has an excellent track record at predicting presidential elections. Here is his site and March Madness brackets.
