Hi Everyone,

I’ll get right to it and finish up my brackets, starting with the Southwest Regionals in San Antonio.

First Round

Kansas (1) vs Boston U (16)  I love the city, so Boston.

UNLV (8) vs Illinois (9)  During the McCarthy era, Illinois was one of the few schools that did not require it’s faculty to sign loyalty oaths. Illinois

Georgetown (6) vs USC or VCU (11) Sorry VCU, but I can’t risk picking USC.  Georgetown.

Purdue (3) vs St. Peter’s (14). I have a friend who went to Purdue, plus they have a cool mascot.  Purdue

Texas A&M (7) vs Florida St.(10).  Well, Bush’s home state or the state whose electoral votes he stole.  Florida St.

Notre Dame (2) vs. Akron (15).  ND gets too much attention already.  Akron

Second Round

Boston vs. Illinois   Tough call, but I’m sticking with the leftists.  Illinois.

Richmond vs. Louisville  Without a PC(USA) mission program, I’d have never met Alissa. Louisville.

Sweet Sixteen

Illinois vs Louisville  Sticking with Obama’s home state. Illinois

Purdue vs Akron They build things and they’re a drink.  What more could one wish for?  Purdue

Elite Eight
