Link Overload

With three area teams playing on the same day in the NCAA Tournament, it’s a bit pointless to try to point out links where you can read about the game. It’s kind of like pointing out a fat person at Ryans – they’re everywhere so why single any out?
Instead of surfing all over for interesting links, I’ll just send you to the News & Observer. As the primary newspaper (I’m discounting the Durham Herald-Sun) for all three teams, you’d expect they would put together some pretty good stories. You’d be right. The N&O did a fine job producing
this series of stories on every ACC game tonight.
As for my picks, I’m going with UNC, Kentucky, Wisconsin and Duke. I’m not comfortable with either of those last two. I think NC State could certainly win, but I’m just impressed with the way Wisconsin has played the last couple of years. They look really well coached and just don’t beat themselves.
The Michigan State-Duke game smells a bit like an upset to me for reasons I can’t fully explain. It’s just a gut feeling. I hope my gut is wrong.
I kind of hope I’m wrong about the Wildcats too, so that UVA can move ahead with their pursuit of Tubby Smith. Wouldn’t that be something if they could land him? What a coup for them and the ACC that would be.
