Picking the NCAA Tournament: Bracketology 3/5

Third time is a charm. In case you missed the first two rounds, welcome to our Nothing But Nylon Bracketology, which we launched a couple weeks ago. Let’s keep it rolling. Call me crazy, but I’m about eight years deep in the Bracketology game, five years as member of the Bracket Matrix, and there’s no slowing it down.

Here’s how I see March Madness shaking out, as of Friday, March 5th at 12pm.
