The NCAA tournament field of 68 teams was announced last night and everyone is already scrambling to get their brackets filled out. Well, I’m here to say, not so fast my bracket filling friends.
It’s only Monday, and with the play in games yet to be played, or as they like to be called now, “the first round” games, it’s way too early to make any determinations. Now I know what your thinking, why should I care about what UCLA or Arizona St. does in a play in game? Well, I’ll tell you why.
Because if UCLA wins their play in game, are you really that confident in the Florida Gators to move on at that point? Or if Syracuse beats ASU, how do you feel about TCU’s chances of moving on? It will pay off more in the future to sit back and relax for a couple of days and let things play out while everyone else scrambles to get their brackets in.
It’s okay to wait until Wednesday night, but do it before Thursday morning. I have seen many times where people get left out in the cold while trying to get their brackets in last minute, the internet traffic at that point is overwhelming. But I am telling you from experience, sit back and wait to see what happens for a couple of days. You don’t want to get burned by one of those 11 seeds who are playing their way in.
Good luck to us all.
