March Madness brackets

The brackets have been filled. The office pools will start later today.

I find it humorous how they decide to place teams in the location categories: Midwest, West, East, and South. Maryland is close to the Atlantic Ocean and Oregon is close to the Pacific, but somehow they both are in the Midwest section. Wright State, one of my two alma maters, is in the West section - I suppose there was a time when Ohio was considered Out West, but that was 150 years ago or so.

I'm from Ohio but I currently live in Indiana, so let's see how teams from those states fared:

Ohio: OSU (#1-South), Xavier (#9-South), Wright State (#14-West), Miami (#14-Midwest)

Indiana: Butler (#5-Midwest), Notre Dame (#6-Midwest), Indiana (#7-West), Purdue (#9-Midwest)

  1. Two things.

    One, I left you a comment on your Ft. Lauderdale post about a DJ in south Florida.

    Two, Hunter Smith (Indpls Colts punter) is coming to Indian Creek Christian Church on March 18. ( He and Chris Wilson have a band called Connersvine ( and they will be performing and Hunter will be speaking in all three services at 8:15, 9:30 & 11:00. The church is on Franklin Rd. right across the streed from Franklin Central High School.
