"Anyone want to get a Bracket Girls post going?"


  

          

It doesn't even have to be for just girls, no sexism implied, just kind of the opposite of a bracket guy.

This is for someone who watches no college basketball, doesn't watch any talking heads, fills out a bracket because people do it based on team names, colors or whatever else and will probably beat you.

I had my wife fill one out, she knows the higher seeds are better but get upset sometimes and just general ideas of things like that she hears about Duke alot and that she went to Ohio State and hears they blow it alot. Her bracket is pretty tame this year, she went with a lot of chalk, last year her shit was crazy and she almost beat me because of it.

I'd be interested to see how our wives, girlfriends, friends who have no idea do vs us who talk sports all day. Let's post them up and compare as the tourney progresses.

Her ACC heavy final 4: UNC, Duke, Miami and Wisconsin with Miami over Duke in the final.

Picks of note other than an 8 seed UNC in final 4: Only 1 1 seed in the elite 8 (Louisville) and Minnesota who everyone seems to hate in the sweet 16.

because Villanova is more fun to say

Witchita State over Pitt because her Dad (recently passed away R.I.P.) worked in Wichita for awhile (meanwhile her husband is from Pittsburgh)

Temple over NC State because her Mom went to Temple City High

UCLA because a friend went there

Georgetown because friends of ours live in a neighborhood in Seattle w/ that same name

with me tonight or tomorrow.

She's like "I gotta do my research".


LMAO...besides watching a half or two of Illini basketball (her alma mater) she has no idea what she's researching.

She's likely gonna go big 10 heavy out of bias.

Last year I beat her and she was legitimately sad (she was winning through the first 2 rounds). I'm like 'why for? you did well for not knowing much about college hoops'.

Apparently, if I win and she can't tease me about an L, it ain't as fun.

Wives.

she has to go to the website and check the updated standings. even in the first round. she watches some of the games, but only roots for her bracket, never the compelling upset. constantly trying to look at the scenarios for her to win, even in the first round.

*Jews you*

"this is okp tho, reading is completely optional" (c) desus

Proceed with caution. I am overtly racist.
