The defending champs -- seen her celebrating their Big 12 championship -- will get a lot bracket respect on brand alone, but don't be fooled. Darrell Arthur is not suiting up for them.
The first day of the NCAA tournament is in the books, and my bracket is in pretty good standing. I filled out two, one of them is 14-2, the other 13-3. On both brackets I incorrectly picked Butler, who was beaten by LSU. And Clemson, who was beaten by Michigan. Looking back I'd stick with those picks. The difference in the two brackets was Mississippi St. I was going back-and-forth on that pick with MSU and Washington. So in one bracket I went with the Bulldogs, and the other I went with Washington. Odds are, this blog will be completely different tomorrow, and I'll hate the tournament.
