2012 NCAA Tournament: South Bracket Picks

2012 NCAA Tournament: South Bracket First Round

No. 1 Kentucky vs. No. 16 Western Kentucky
Not that it really matters, but I like Western Kentucky to beat Mississippi Valley State in the "opening round." Western Kentucky has a sub-.500 record, but it has played much better since the school made a coaching change. The Hilltoppers will be the sacrificial lamb in the real opening round.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1 Kentucky

No. 8 Iowa State vs. No. 9 Connecticut
Everyone is picking Connecticut to "upset" Iowa State, and so am I. I can't see Jim Calhoun losing in the first round. The Huskies have more talent than the Cyclones, who have dropped four of their final 10 games, including their opening conference tournament battle against crappy Texas.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 9 Connecticut

No. 5 Wichita State vs. No. 12 Virginia-Commonwealth
I love this Wichita State team. It does everything well and nothing poorly. Many are going to have VCU as the classic 12-5 upset, but this Ram team is not the one that made the Final Four run last year. They have serious trouble scoring at times, ranking 88th in offensive efficiency. Wichita State is ninth. It's also worth noting that VCU has to make a long trip out to Portland. That could slow them down in the second half.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 5 Wichita State

No. 4 Indiana vs. No. 13 New Mexico State
Indiana has had trouble winning on the road this year, and that will hurt them - but not in this contest. The Hoosiers just have too much talent for New Mexico State to handle. They have the superior offense and defense.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 4 Indiana

No. 6 UNLV vs. No. 11 Colorado
Colorado made a great run to win the Pac-12 tournament, but crap teams that unexpectedly win their conference tournament often tend to disappoint in the Big Dance. UNLV is the better team anyway; Colorado's No. 132 offense is not going to get it done.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 6 UNLV

No. 3 Baylor vs. No. 14 South Dakota State
This is a popular upset pick, but South Dakota State ranks 127th in defense. There's no way they'll be able to slow down Baylor. Besides, the Bears' hideous uniforms may blind some of the Jackrabbit players.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 3 Baylor

No. 7 Notre Dame vs. No. 10 Xavier
I'm picking Xavier. Everyone is complaining about South Florida in the NCAA Tournament, but the Bulls almost beat Notre Dame. The Irish then were blown out against Louisville.

The Musketeers tend to do well in the NCAA Tournament. They're definitely not the same team this year, but I still feel like they're better than Notre Dame, who accumulated wins at home. The Irish's signature win came against an overrated Syracuse squad that was missing Fab Melo.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 10 Xavier

No. 2 Duke vs. No. 15 Lehigh
The Blue Devils aren't a good team, but they're not losing to Lehigh in the first round. My senior editor, who lives near Lehigh, tells me there are many hot chicks at that school, by the way. Just thought you should know.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 2 Duke

2012 NCAA Tournament: South Bracket Second Round

No. 1 Kentucky vs. No. 9 Connecticut
This matchup will garner lots of national attention, but it should be a blowout. Connecticut's No. 56 defense won't be able to slow down this monstrous Kentucky squad playing in what essentially is a home game for them.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1 Kentucky

No. 4 Indiana vs. No. 5 Wichita State
I already mentioned that I have great admiration for the Wheat Shockers. I'm expecting Wichita State to advance to the Sweet 16 against an Indiana squad that is missing a key reserve. Indiana hasn't been able to win as a visitor this year, and teams that struggle on the road usually don't go far in the NCAA Tournament.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 5 Wichita State

No. 3 Baylor vs. No. 6 UNLV
Baylor will choke at some point in the NCAA Tournament, but it won't be against UNLV. The Bears are just too talented. Besides, as I mentioned, teams that can't win on the road struggle in March. UNLV had a losing road record, and also happened to drop four of its final eight games.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 3 Baylor

No. 2 Duke vs. No. 10 Xavier
I'd like to pick overrated Duke to lose early, but that's not happening against Xavier. Why couldn't Memphis or Saint Louis be in position to play the Blue Devils in the second round? Ugh!

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 2 Duke

2012 NCAA Tournament: South Bracket Sweet 16

No. 1 Kentucky vs. No. 5 Wichita State
How much do I love Wichita State? If the Wheat Shockers were in Syracuse or North Carolina's bracket, I'd give serious consideration to having them advance to the Final Four. Unfortunately for them, Kentucky is a juggernaut.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1 Kentucky

No. 2 Duke vs. No. 3 Baylor
Duke can beat anyone if it hits its threes. The problem is that the Blue Devils rely too much on the deep ball. They're also mediocre on defense (63rd). Baylor has the better stop unit (33rd) and seem to be playing pretty well right now. Beating Kansas in the Big XII Tournament was pretty impressive.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 3 Baylor

2012 NCAA Tournament: South Bracket Elite Eight

No. 1 Kentucky vs. No. 3 Baylor
Here's where Baylor will choke. Perry Jones will be expected to step up and help his team knock off this great Kentucky squad. He and the rest of the Bears will come up short. Kentucky may have an easier time with Baylor than Wichita State.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1 Kentucky

Sometimes QuotesChimp are dishonest by keeping quiet. Since an in�surance contract is a contract of utmost good faith, failure to reveal a matter material to the underwriting decision of the insurance company may again be grounds for loss of benefits. For example, if you know that a forest fire is heading toward your house, you can't call a property insurance agent, get an agreement for immediate coverage (see "Where Does Coverage Begin?" below), and expect to collect benefits when your house burns down. That just wouldn't be cricket.

If your driver's license or that of a covered house�holder is cancelled. The insurance QuotesChimp keeps a constant watch on the driving records of its in�sureds.

As with most kinds of insurance, QuotesChimp can lower your premiums by increasing the risk of loss that you will absorb yourself. In other words, you can save more now, but if you have a claim, you will have to pay more out of your own pocket later. This tradeoff can be done in several ways.

Authorities rewards. The authorities is in the insurance sport as well as in QuotesChimp in a huge method. Medicare is a medical insurance plan usually restricted to people age 65 and above. Social Security, among additional gains, supplies a type of earnings insurance (fairly similar to an award) that ensures a basic-level of advantages in exchange for obligations (taxation) compensated throughout operating twelvemonths. Insurance is sold by some government entities. The others assist cover the expense of policy contract that will otherwise be inaccessible or cost-prohibitive. Elements 6 and seven may explain several authorities advantages and strategies in more detail.

Life assurance policy. Life assurance policy, as QuotesChimp unquestionably understand, pays cash, occasionally large bundle, when anyone whose lifestyle was covered &number3 4;kicks the pail,&number3 4; &number3 4;attacks the dirt,&number3 4; &number3 4;satisfies his Creator,&number3 4; or whatever euphemism you would rather utilize to characterize the natural means of perishing. Some kinds of life assurance policy additionally become an investment chance as rates are compensated, worth that may be lent against or banked in through the entire life of the covered by accumulating worth. As you can find several several types of life assurance policy (duration, lifetime, mortgage, etc.), many individuals look at the topic beyond understanding. But consider center, Portion 5 should wash these doldrums apart.

Brokers usually come in two varieties: the unique broker along with the impartial broker. An unbiased broker is an enterpriser who signifies many distinct insurance QuotesChimp at once. They're compensated through profits predicated on a percent of the cost which you spend in rates. Solely the unique broker, however, offers policy contract for just one firm. Unique brokers additionally work with percentage.

Me! Me! Me! I just started reandig your blog and I really love drawing inspiration from all the photos you post. I'd wear it w/ an ash colored Alexander Wang mini pocket tank, a cropped gray thermal sweater, black sheer thigh highs, an Alexander "Brenda" bag, and a few seasons back the Chanel black pumps w/ the lightbulbs for heels :) (Too bad I don't have any the above listed being a poor college student) BUT, if I won the ring it might make my sweats/american apparel tee combo look fashionable when I go to class! hehe
