Second verse, same as the first. Except this time, I hope not to miss every single one of my final-session picks. Phew. Last night was brutal. I hope yours was too, just to make me feel better.

Here are today's thoughts:

  • Marquette vs. Xavier is my No-Effing-Idea game of the day. I have no idea who will come out on top of this one.
  • Washington had to travel over 2,000 miles to play today's game. Georgia had to drive just a couple hours. Is that enough of an advantage for the Dawgs to advance?
  • Three of the first four games yesterday were decided by two points or fewer. Any chance today's games will be as exciting?

And here's your agenda for the day:
