Quote of the day
"This tournament is idiot proof. Thatís been proven over the years." -- ESPN analyst Jay Bilas, commenting that the seeding ďmistakesĒ in this yearís tournament shouldnít end up significantly impacting the outcome
I donít recall a year in which there has been such an overwhelming consensus among all of the NCAA pundits. It seems as though everyone is picking Louisville to face Michigan State in the final game. Both are #4 seeds (whether they should be or not), which probably means that the #4 seed basket will be a heavy long in the RotoGuru Market Madness Contest. (Thatís purely speculation, as I havenít looked over the actual entries yet.) If so, youíll need to find some other picks to differentiate yourself from the pack. That doesnít mean you have to pick against the #4s. But you may not be able to rely on those picks to cement your win. And if Louisville and Michigan State do perform as predicted, youíll probably need to be long each of them and the #4 seed basket to be in the running, as collectively those units would produce 200 bonus points plus the game points.
You get three entries. Maybe you want to use one to go with the flow, and another to take the road less traveled. Iím thinking of doing that myself.

If you long the 4 seeds, I think that you have to short the 1 seeds. If the 1 seeds make the elite eight, you're going to lose anyway.
