With the true opening day coming in less than eight hours, I figured someone needed to make some predictions for the upcoming season. Here is my attempt to catch lightning in a bottle and some commentary to go along with it.

When the tournament brackets were released on CBS two weeks ago, CBS analyst Clark Kellogg made what I thought was the stupidest possible prediction, as he prognosticated that all four No. 1 seeds would advance to the Final Four. With only one more day left before the Final Four is set, Kellogg may be right.

Well, if there’s an upset to be had out there, I won’t pick it (thanks Davidson). If there’s an upset that won’t happen, I’ll claim it as so (thanks Michigan State). Keep that in mind on my picks the rest of the way, as Memphis continues to make me look bad with every passing second.

I must say Xavier has become my albatross in this tournament, as the Musketeers continue to punish me for my insolence. For two weeks now, I keep talk about how Xavier is ripe for a fall. For two weeks now, the Muskies have given me a middle finger.

This might be the most wide-open of regions going into the Sweet 16, which makes sense because it was the most wide-open region coming in. Unlike other regions, which had the Western Kentuckys and Washington States of the world advance, you can name any of the four teams left and see them in the Final Four. With Memphis, Texas, Stanford and Michigan State, you have teams that have been there before or have an excess of talent.

Except for top-seeded Kansas, who blitzed through its first two opponents, the Midwest Regional was Bizarro World. Kramer had a briefcase full of crackers for his 9-to-5 job, Elaine met Bizarro Jerry, George and Kramer, George dated models and Jerry was disorganized.

Cajon quarterback Taylor Martinez, who helped lead the Cowboys to a 6-5 record and a victory over Pasadena Muir in the first round of the CIF-SS Central Division playoffs, transferred to Corona Centennial over the winter.

I might not have been right about everything in the West region (far from it actually) but one thing I nailed was that there would be whining about the officiating in a UCLA game. That happened in the Bruins’ second-round game against Texas A&M, as a controversial no-call in the final seconds helped UCLA escape with a 51-49 victory Saturday.

Well, I must say my picks last week were a mixed bag. My upset specials were all horrid and stunk to high heaven and I was completely wrong to say that Villanova was a fraud, but I must say I was right about telling people to stay away from Vandy and Pitt and bet high on West Virginia. Anyone who rolled the dice on Michigan State, like I advocated in the South Region breakdown, is playing with house money at this point.
Well, with the field down to 16, I’ll be breaking down each game individually from now on. Let’s do this, starting with the East Region.
