But my son still wants me to fill out a bracket, and thus have to make some tough decisions...
Can Vermont be the first 16 seed to upset a number one seed when they play Syracuse? Will 10th seeded Georgia Tech upset #7 Oklahoma State? Can West Virginia prove the selection committee was wrong by not seeding them #1 and run through their side of the bracket to the Final Four? What makes these questions so difficult for me is each of them is an EthicsPoint customer, so I'd like to see each of them do well.
If you're like me and your bracket falls apart after the first weekend leaving you to find some team to cheer on through the next few weeks, perhaps you'll find a favorite in the schools above, or one of the other EthicsPoint customers in the tournament:
- University of California
- University of California Santa Barbara
- Northern Iowa
- Ohio State
- Robert Morris
- Sam Houston
- Texas A&M
- Utah State
