It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World

I went ahead and shelled out the fifty-whatever bux to get the NCAA Madness package on DirecTv, so now I need to win the cash to pay for the purchase. Today's picks:

Syracuse +1 vs Texas A&M: As part of the NCAA package, I'm watching the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee hang with Oklahoma. Watching the Sooners play is making me question the strength of the Big 12 beyond Texas and Kansas. The Big East meanwhile was by far the deepest conference in the country this year. If Syracuse could navigate their way through the Big East tourney, they should be able to find a way to get past Texas A&M.

Indiana -1 vs San Diego State: The Aztecs were very tight in the Mountain West finals against Wyoming. Mountain West player of the year Brandon Heath was something like 8-28 from the field. There won't be any room for error against the Hoosiers. Defensively, the Aztecs will double Marco Killingsworth in the post and force Indiana to beat them from the outside. Indiana should be up to that task.

For the record, in what may be an 0 for 4 scenario, I have a Final Four prediction of Texas, UCLA, Michigan State and Georgetown.
