The NCAA basketball tournament starts Thursday (well, technically tonight with the 1st Four). This is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year (I have that Christmas carol running through my head which Staples also uses for very funny, if you are a parent, Back to School shopping commercial) – I love college basketball and the week of conference tournaments and the NCAA tournament is one of my favorite times of the year. It is also one of my most least productive times of the year.
I graduated from Villanova (hence the VU logo for my avatar) and am bullish on the Wildcats this year. I think they can play with anyone in the country save Kentucky. Living in North Carolina, I am particularly intrigued by the potential match up on Saturday with NC State. VU has not done well in the tournament since their 2009 Final 4 run. I am hoping the recent string of early exits ends this year.
If you’re wondering why updates to Email Users and Google Forms are so slow coming out, it is because I am a bit preoccupied and wasting lots of time reading the analysis from all of the college hoop pundits. I am also going over my brackets for the various pools I am in. Once the tournament is over, particularly after Villanova loses, my attention will return to my various projects and updates will become a bit more predictable.
