Brad-ketology: Final 2020 NCAA Bracket

2020 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament - Wikipedia

Here it is– my annual projection for this year’s NCAA tournament bracket.  The only problem is there is no NCAA tournament this season.  Nevertheless, the show must go on and my love for “Christmas”, as I call the first round of the NCAA tournament, will not be diminished by this mass overreaction to this year’s flu.

If you would like to see this in bracket form, let me know and I’ll send you an excel copy of the bracket. My regional final four pairings are Midwest vs. East and South vs. West.
