    BPI's NCAA tournament bracket simulation will surprise you

    No. 8 Colorado over No. 9 Florida

    What a fall for Florida, from being a team we actually called a co-preseason favorite with Michigan State to now a quiet first-round exit. BPI gave the Gators a 59% chance to win this contest, but on this day it was the Buffaloes who came out on top.


    No surprise we were #9 seed (probably lost our first SEC tourney game b/c Blackshear was hurt).
    Of course we lost a game we were favored to win.
    Here's how I imagine the game:
    We lose 62-57. It was a close game, with no team opening greater than a 6 point lead. We're up by 2 at halftime, but then we get on a cold streak and Colorado makes enough shots to take the lead. We're within 4 points with 10 seconds left, but Locke misses a 3 pointer. Colorado rebounds, makes 1 of 2 FTs, and that's the game. Our top player as usual was KJ, with Nembhard close behind. Nobody else scored more than 8 points.

    Isn't life so amazing where the only sports we have is either watching old games or imagining future games?

    Name and town if you wish to opine.

    Would have been cheering for the orange and blue but glad i didn’t have to make the choice. Would prefer them in opposite ends of the bracket.
