Picking upsets in never fun when nobody's gettin' frickin' upset...and damn was I wrong about USC, what a MFing letdown they were. Anywho, before I roll to my NBA picks (100% ATS since yesterday) I figure I'll let you fools make fun of my Final Four:
T-3rd - LOUISVILLE CARDINALS
The deepest team in the tourney has an athletic frontcout to stop UNC and Psyco T, while Jr. Terrece Williams and So. Edgar Sosa will emerge in this tourney as superstars. I also believe the projected Kansas/Louisville match-up could be the best game of the Dance.
T-3rd - MEMPHIS TIGERS
Another loaded, athletic roster that would crush 90% of the teams in the field of 65, but watch as their bigs struggle with foul-trouble against UCONN...and no matter what Mr. Calipari says, FTs will not help his cause.
The 1st-place Loser - UCONN HUSKIES
Their frontcourt erases anything within 7-ft of the bucket, and has a guard rotation that has become remarkable disciplined...after some Calhoun discipline.
NCAA CHAMPS - KANSAS JAYHAWKS
They've killed my bracket soooo many times, I'd feel like a fool if I didn't pick them when they finally won it. As my grandma would say, So-balanced and So-nice to have veteran guards late in games.
As for today's upsets, NBA picks, and Friendly Faces, you better...

HOUSTON ROCKETS @ GOLDEN ST WARRIORS (-3.5)
It’s a GST Zubaz Friday Homeboys! Congrats to the Rocks on their run, but I’m guessing the emotional rollercoaster over the past month has been draining…and even more apparent after losing two-straight. And tonight, they have the luxury of playing against the best-home court in the NBA and a team desperately holding the final playoff spot in the West. During the Rockets run they relied on team defense and offensive efficiency (and a favorable schedule) to keep the game at their tempo. Combined with the expected letdown from the streak, GST’s free-lance style does a remarkable job of f*ckin’ up the pace and will keep a tired, beat-up Houston squad from establishing a rythum. Did I mention Rafer Alston is gonna have to guard Baron or Monta…yeah, don’t think that’s gonna happen…Warriors by 8-12 points
SAN DIEGO TOREROS VS UCONN HUSKIES (-12)
The tiny, slashing guards of San Diego have never seen shot-blockers like this and don't have the deepth on D to slow-down the interior attack of the Huskies...UCONN by 18-22 points
