Brew Crew Bracketology 2015
As the NCAA Basketball Tournament gets underway, we’re all feeling a little bit of that March Madness.
And, although UW-Madison is competing again this year, the particular “March Madness” I’m referring to in this case is baseball related.
We’re now less than three weeks from Brewers Baseball returning to Milwaukee and the madness has hit full tilt. We’re ready for the Boys of Summer to return from Arizona and bring back some more of that warmer weather that we got a taste of earlier this week. We’re ready for America’s Pastime done the Wisconsin way, with tailgating, Sausage Races and Bernie’s slides.
How will we cope the next few weeks? Well, we’ve got a few more Spring Training games that we can watch and listen to and in addition to that, there’s that other March Madness that I alluded to, an entertaining diversion that makes that time until Opening Day go by quicker.
Like most of America, we’re sure you found time to fill out a bracket. That’s why we asked some of the Crew to do the same.
A few of the participants, like Brewers reliever Rob Wooten, who is a diehard fan of the University of North Carolina Tar Heels and a former Tar Heel himself, really get into it.
You can tell that both Rob and Corey Knebel, who played for the University of Texas, picked with their hearts while Matt Clark, a former LSU Tiger, picked with his head.
Others, like Brewers pitchers Kyle Lohse, really don’t follow basketball all that closely, but find it is still fun to participate in the bracket challenge.
But that’s the thing with March Madness– the tourney can be so unpredictable that a basketball fanatic has just as much of a chance as a coin-flipper.
Follow along with Brew Crew Bracketology below and see how their picks “net” out.
For those watching the games, you might recognize a familiar voice. Our own Brian Anderson has full slate of NCAA tourney duty:
