2012 NCAA Tournament: West Bracket Picks

2012 NCAA Tournament: West Bracket First Round

No. 1 Michigan State vs. No. 16 Long Island
I was born and raised in Philadelphia, yet I never made a single trip into the state of New York. That's why I'm picking Michigan State.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1 Michigan State

No. 8 Memphis vs. No. 9 Saint Louis
I'm really pissed off. I LOVE Memphis and St. Louis, and I wanted to have them both make a deep run into the tournament. Lo and behold, they play each other in the first round and then have to deal with Michigan State in the second round. FML.

Saint Louis has great coaching, but I'm going to pick Memphis because of its shear talent. The Tigers rank in the top 20 in both offensive and defensive efficiency. They're on fire, having won 11 of 12, and I think their momentum will benefit them in this matchup.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 8 Memphis

No. 5 New Mexico vs. No. 12 Long Beach State
Long Beach State is a favorite of Digger Phelps, but New Mexico is the better team. The Lobos have the superior offense and defense, and own a really good road record. The Beach, meanwhile, might be missing point guard Larry Anderson (14.0 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 3.1 apg) for this matchup. He sat out the Big West Tournament. He could man up and play, but that might mean that he'd hurt his team by not being 100 percent.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 5 New Mexico

No. 4 Louisville vs. No. 13 Davidson
Poor Davidson has to travel from its home in North Carolina all the way out to Portland and deal with Louisville's hectic trapping. The Wildcats are a good team, and they deserved better than this. The NCAA Selection Committee, once again, screwing over the mid-majors like it's their job.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 4 Louisville

No. 6 Murray State vs. No. 11 Colorado State
Can someone tell me why this terrible Colorado State team is in the NCAA Tournament? The Rams have the No. 175 defense and own a 3-9 road record. Drexel should be dancing instead of Colorado State. What a joke.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 6 Murray State

No. 3 Marquette vs. No. 14 BYU
BYU-Iona is a classic offense-defense matchup. BYU is 25th in defense, while Iona is 15th in offense. It's a very close call, but I'm picking the former because defense is more important. The winner of that game, however, is pretty much screwed because it'll have to play on Thursday - just two days after playing another game. Marquette will be well rested.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 3 Marquette

No. 7 Florida vs. No. 10 Virginia
Florida couldn't have asked for a better matchup. The offensively challenged Cavaliers are complete garbage, having lost five of their previous eight games.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 7 Florida

No. 2 Missouri vs. No. 15 Norfolk State
Norfolk State is the second-worst team in the NCAA Tournament, being superior to only Mississippi Valley State. And yes, I'm preparing for a series e-mails from crazed homers from the State of Norfolk, wherever the hell that is.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 2 Missouri

2012 NCAA Tournament: West Bracket Second Round

No. 1 Michigan State vs. No. 8 Memphis
If Memphis were playing in the East region, I'd pick them over Syracuse. The Tigers are that good. It's just a damn shame that they have to run into Tom Izzo in the second round. The talent of these two teams is pretty comparable, but Izzo will coach circles around the inexperienced Josh Pastner. I'll never understand how the Selection Committee decided that Memphis should be a No. 8 seed.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1 Michigan State

No. 4 Louisville vs. No. 5 New Mexico
These teams are really close. I have New Mexico being slightly better than Louisville because of the Cardinals' offensive struggles, but in a second-round toss-up, I'm always going to select the team that has the better chance of being there. Louisville will not lose to Davidson. New Mexico could go down to Long Beach State.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 4 Louisville

No. 3 Marquette vs. No. 6 Murray State
One of the seedings that the Selection Committee got right was Murray State. I haven't really thought much of the Racers all year; they hover around No. 50 in both offense and defense, and their strength of schedule (250) indicates that they've feasted on terrible teams all year.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 3 Marquette

No. 2 Missouri vs. No. 7 Florida
I don't think much of Missouri, but I think even less of Florida and its No. 119 defense. The Gators have struggled on the road all season, which indicates that they'll be bounced early in the NCAA Tournament.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 2 Missouri

2012 NCAA Tournament: West Bracket Sweet 16

No. 1 Michigan State vs. No. 4 Louisville
As mentioned, Louisville has serious trouble scoring at times. The Cardinals rank No. 122 in offense and average only 69 points per game. The number of conference blowouts is usually a barometer for how well a team fares in the NCAA Tournament. Louisville has only three all year. Michigan State has seven.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1 Michigan State

No. 2 Missouri vs. No. 3 Marquette
I'm picking another three-seed to knock off a No. 2. It's close, but I think Marquette is the more solid team. Missouri's offense is awesome, but its defense is 75th. The Golden Eagles, meanwhile, are No. 25 in offense and No. 19 in defense. They also have an advantage in coaching, as Buzz Williams has enjoyed more NCAA Tournament success than Frank Haith, who has coached in only two tournament games.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 3 Marquette

2012 NCAA Tournament: West Bracket Elite Eight

No. 1 Michigan State vs. No. 3 Marquette
Tom Izzo is usually capable of taking mediocre and injury-plagued teams to the Final Four. He's not going to lose early with a great roster like this. Draymond Green is too good not to advance to New Orleans.

2012 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1 Michigan State

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.

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
