I dont know if he is still alive, but well done either way --

 

One perfect NCAA bracket remains in Yahoo Tourney Pick'em

 

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ncaab-the-dagger/one-perfect-ncaa-bracket-remains--with-a-catch-053219703.html

 

 

And then there was one.

 

Yes, after 32 "second-round" games (we put that in quotes because really it's Round 1) in this year's NCAA tournament – and one more starting Saturday's action – a perfect bracket does remain.

 

Congratulations Brad Binder of "Brad's Breathtaking Bracket," your bracket really is breathtaking. You picked Mercer over Duke. You picked Dayton over Ohio State. And you got lucky as hell when VCU bailed out Stephen F. Austin with a four-point play in the closing seconds of regulation and wound up losing in overtime.

 

You picked all 32 games correctly on Thursday and Friday, kept rolling on Saturday, going 4-for-4 so far, and for that, we commend you.

 

Binder, 23, told Yahoo Sports that "I did all my picks in under five minutes."

 

He picked Mercer because "Duke was soft all year and they live and die by the 3 ball. Mercer has that chemistry."

The thing I'll never understand is why the SEC roots and pulls for SEC teams in the tournament. I'm sure as hell not going to pull for Kansas when we are in recruiting battles with them. Something I've never understood about the SEC.

 

I think it's consistent with the in-breeding thing.

Sounds about right. It makes absolutely zero sense to me. You want your competition to lose. If Kentucky, Tennessee and Florida keep winning that's going to give them a huge edge with recruits. I guess if you like hurting your own program, you would want your in conference foes to win in the tournament.

Only reinforces what I believe. There aren't nearly as many powerhouse programs now in college basketball. The disparity between teams/programs has really shrunk. Not much difference between a 10 and 1 seed.
