Looking back:

On. Oct. 21 I tried to predict this season's NCAA field. The results: I only picked 34 out of 65.

The bad:
Picked both North Carolina and BC out of the ACC
Had only one team from the Mountain West
Holy Cross from the Patriot (no wonder they fired Sean Kearney. Only kidding, that shouldn't have happened).
Had four Pac 10 teams
Didn't have Baylor in

The good:

Had Houston out of Conference USA (sometimes you have to be lucky)

Somebody agrees with me:
Listen to Mike and Mike on ESPN radio this morning, both Mike Greenberg and guest host Doug Gottlieb mentioned that they thought an offensive foul call late in the Baylor-Duke game was a bad one and helped turn the game Duke's way. The call should have been a good basket and a fifth foul on the flopping Brian Zoubek. The basket would have given Baylor a four-point lead and possibly a five-point lead. Instead, Duke got possession, Jon Scheyer hit a three-pointer to give the Blue Devils a one-point lead and they were on their way to victory. Offensive fouls are evil.

Speaking of Gottlieb:
Some people find him abrasive, and maybe he is sometimes, but he's a great analyst of college basketball (and not because of the Duke-Baylor comment).
