I just finished filling out my bracket in the FTRS Bracket Challenge. This was probably one of the toughest things I've had to do all year! As ridiculous as that sounds I think some of you can see where I'm coming from.
When your team (in this case, Tech, obviously) is in the tournament it makes filling out a bracket a very bittersweet task in my opinion. On the one hand, I want to pick Tech to make a deep run in the tournament this year because I feel like we have favorable matchups for our team in the first and second rounds. But on the other hand, we all know Tech has been wildly inconsistent, so trying to predict how we'll play is nearly impossible.
Tech is really great at breaking my heart too... especially in basketball. In 2007 I picked Tech to go to the Sweet 16 (think back: Thad Young, Javaris, and some nice role players around them). That team could have gone a long way. That year was the first of 2 consecutive years where I got every pick correct on the first day of the tournament. And I believe Tech played late afternoon on Friday against UNLV. And up until the Tech game, I was still perfect with all my picks. What happened? Yup. Tech spoiled everything.
What are your thoughts about picking your team in the tournament? How far did you pick Tech to go this year?
