As always, you don't have to be a college basketball fan to participate in this pool. Over the years we've had picks made solely by utilizing a dart board, a home-made computer program, team colors, and ferocity of mascot (man beats animal beats inanimate object). Last year a 7 year old took 6th place! So as you can see, even if you can't pronounce 'Valparaiso' you can be in the game. I can't wait to see what new and ingenious selection methods will be devised this time.
I think every year I recount the same old stories about my picks winning $500 for Gary Leff or my brilliant foresight in picking Gonzaga to go to the Elite Eight in 1999. But this year I wanted to give you all something different. Something creative and motivational. In honor of the 10th anniversary, I would like to present to you a poem, written by our very own Scott Dogg in freshman English class, and forever committed to my memory. I think you will find his words inspiring and give you much to ponder as you fill out your own bracket. Enjoy:
I wanted Duke
Scott Dogg, March 1994
