Searching for some last-minute advice on which 5-12 upset to pick in your bracket? Kenny Powers has all the NCAA tournament analysis you need to be the envy of your office pool.
Just check out his Tournageddon page on Facebook. Here’s the San Diego State sample.
I love little, obscure, no-one’s-ever-heard-of-you schools. I just think it’s nice of the Tournament to let a team from Mexico in to compete against the good ol’ USA. I don’t know what San Diego stands for in Mexican, but evidently, it’s synonymous to “the little train that could.” It’s pretty cute. 20 straight wins? Not bad, but I can’t imagine the competition in Mexico is that good. Most people there play stupid games like soccer. So, this must be some sort of All-Star team. Either way, get ready for two or possibly three wins. Viva Mexico!
Good luck finding insight like that on CBS, TBS, TNT or truTV. Who needs Dick Vitale, Bill Raftery or Bobby Knight?
Kenny Powers has the kind of incisive mind that can slice through incomprehensible coachspeak and X-and-O psychobabble to get right to the point. His unconventional way of thinking might not be for everybody, but genius always has been misunderstood.
Powers speaks the language of every fan who doesn’t know the difference between a pick-and-roll and a jelly donut. He doesn’t get bogged down by facts, stats and logic. He thrives on feel and gut instinct.
So if you’ve watched more reruns of Jersey Shore than live college basketball games this season, listen to Kenny Powers. Absorb the knowledge. Soak up the wisdom.
You’ll be kicking yourself if you don’t and your bracket is busted by the end of the first weekend.
