My NCAA final eight 2014

It is time to prepare for NCAA pools and make your selections for a tournament that 68 teams will be competing for a championship.

I keep on putting money into a pool despite the crazy finishes, many upsets and close defeats that prevents me from cashing in at the end of the tournament. The closest I’ve ever been was fifth, which means only 1 top 10 finish.

My prominent heartbreaks were Davidson (Stephen Curry) defeating Georgetown (Roy Hibbert) and Gonzaga (Adam Morrison crying at the end of the game) losing to UCLA.  Enough with the bad memories it is on to a new tournament.

My Final 8: South will be Florida versus Syracuse, West Arizona against Wisconsin, East Michigan State versus Providence and Mid-West Wichita State against Duke.

Final 4 will be Florida versus Michigan State and Wisconsin against Wichita State.

Finals Florida versus Wichita State and the champion will be Florida.

Every year there is an unexpected team in Final 8 that would explain Providence pick.

Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan is due to lead his team to the Final 4 apparently this is his best offensive team that he every coached. Many times Wisconsin has cost me in the tournament; I’m afraid to pick against them and they finally get to the Final 4.

Many prognosticators picked Michigan State to win it all.

Wichita State will lose the perfect season bid in the Finals to a better Florida team.

Which schools will be your Final 4 and winner?

Enjoy your day!
