A friend who used the picks I made in the Observer for an NCAA pool says that if Ohio State beats Florida tonight, he wins.
This indicates that there are only two people in his pool.
He said there are 12, so I guess it was a rough few weeks for other people, too.
I had North Carolina, Kansas, Oregon and Ohio State making the Final Four, and my beloved, until Tuesday, Buckeyes winning the tournament. I tore it up in the early rounds, but that's like saying the appetizers were good. The trick is to get your teams into the Final Four.
I liked the Ducks as an underdog because they are sufficiently unconventional to beat anybody. But only a fool would pick against Florida -- until tonight, I mean.
