Quote of the day
"You know how last year [Louisville] said they hoped we’d win after they lost? UK fans don’t hope they win. I don’t even hope they have a good practice today, to tell you the truth." -- Kentucky fan Roby Thompson, after Kentucky lost in the first round of the NIT while Louisville was preparing for an opening game in Lexington.
Let the Madness begin!
As I write this blurb, the tournament is only a little more than 2 hours away. Be sure to get your Market Madness picks in by 12:15pm ET, when Valparaiso and Michigan State tip it off.
I’ll be updating Contest results throughout the day. And participating in 3 baseball league drafts. And tracking GuruGolf. My dog isn’t likely to get a lot of attention from me today! Then again, he’s a former Market Madness winner himself – in 2011 – when the final game was improbably between the Huskies and the Bulldogs. So maybe he’ll be glued to the TV as well.
Meanwhile, Graham DeLaet is the most popular GuruGolfer this week, on about 23% of active foursomes. Jeff Overton, Sang-Moon Bae and KJ Choi are in his shadow. Once again, roster diversity reigns.
