  • Get out your dancing shoes ......

    Warning!
    If you want to win your NCAA Tournament pool this year, please do yourself a huge favor. Close the paper, fold it up and put it back on the coffee table. If you want to lose and be embarrassed in the process then by all means continue reading.
    Let me begin by reminding Kentucky fans that yes the tournament will still be played despite the absence of the Wildcats. They did not deserve to be in the field which leads me to my first guarantee of the tournament. There will be a new national champion when the tournament wraps up in Atlanta on April 8.
