Anybody But Duke

"Every year on Selection Sunday, I make my own choice: Anyone but Duke.

I am not alone in this growing anti-Duke sentiment. In fact, more Americans root against Duke in the NCAA tournament than rooted against the Soviet Union in the Cuban missile crisis.

Some might figure this is just a reaction to the Blue Devils' remarkable pattern of success. Actually, no. We just don't like the cut of their jib."

This Norman Chad column eerily mimics my methodology for picking the NCAA tournament.

Also, apologies to readers who had trouble with yesterday's post giving my picks. I've fixed it. Not shown below is my pick for the final game -- Kentucky over Wake, 87-80.
