My Final Four Picks
As always I go by the Sagarin Ratings, which you can find here
. Pay attention to "Predictor" and not to "Rating". Look hard at what teams get a break playing near their home court. For example, Texas A&M will get to play in San Antonio in the regionals, if they get past Louisville, who play in Lexington in the first two rounds. North Carolina's first two games are in Winston-Salem. Wisconsin plays in Chicago in the early rounds which is a very short drive for their fans.
My Final Four picks are as follows: Florida, Kansas, North Carolina and Texas A&M. That's three #1 seeds, which makes me a tad uncomfortable. UCLA seems to be the only team with a real good shot at breaking through among the rest; they're 8-1 against Top 25 teams this year. North Carolina appears to me to be the team to beat; their predictor rating of 97.96 is over four points higher than their nearest competitor.
