Since our Terriers weren’t invited to the Big Dance — and because there wasn’t much interest around the office in a “CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament” bracket — we basketball fans here at the Office of Distance Education have been forced to adopt some new favorite college hoops teams as the NCAA tournament gets underway.
In typical March Madness fashion the field of 68 seems to be wide open this year, and that’s reflected in the variety of predicted champions chosen in our annual for-entertainment-purposes-0nly office pool. Among 15 entries, eight different teams were forecast as the ultimate winner, meaning bragging rights figure to be up for grabs right through the Final Four.
Who do you think will win? Let us know in the comment section, or on Facebook, and check out the breakdown of how people here at ODE and in the Metropolitan College marketing department think the tourney will shake out. You may recognize some of the names…
