This year, my short list consists of Connecticut, Texas, Memphis, Ohio State and Villanova. OK, so five teams do not make for a terribly short list, but they all have a common denominator ó theyíre all great all-around teams without a true superstar. Thatís what won last year and Iím going with it this year.
If I had to narrow that list down, Iíd cut it to Ohio State and UConn, but donít ask me to pick a winner. If I can get a Final Four out of those five teams, Iíll win my pool no matter which wins the title. I may need to enter five times to do it, but I like my chances.
