Like, 20 minutes ago. Kentucky is the prohibitive favorite to win it all, but people honestly believe that they’ll fall before they reach the final game on Sunday. I beg to differ. Vandy’s got a good chance to get out of their half of the bracket if they don’t do what Vandy teams have historically done in the Tournament, suck. A UK/Vandy final might be too much for my household to handle. ON TO THE PREDICTIONICATIONS! (winner of first/second round matchup in all SUPERBOLDITALICS)
Thursday, March 8
No. 8 LSU vs. No. 9 Arkansas, 1 p.m., SEC Network
No. 5 Alabama vs. No. 12 South Carolina, 3:30 p.m., SEC Network
No. 7 Ole Miss vs. No. 10 Auburn, 7:30 p.m., SEC Network
No. 6 Mississippi State vs. No. 11 Georgia, 10 p.m., SEC Network
- Wow, that’s chalky, and not in a Chalky White kind of way. Most chaotic game will be Ole Miss and Auburn because who the fuck knows who’s gonna play well in that game? Also, State could totally lose to Georgia.
Friday, March 9
LSU-Arkansas winner vs. No. 1 Kentucky, 1 p.m., SEC Network
Alabama-South Carolina winner vs. No. 4 Florida, 3:30 p.m., SEC Network
Ole Miss-Auburn winner vs. No. 2 Tennessee, 7:30 p.m., SEC Network
Mississippi State-Georgia winner vs. No. 3 Vanderbilt, 10 p.m., SEC Network
- Kentucky ain’t goin’ out on Friday, or I’m getting hammered/fired that afternoon. Florida could totally lose to Alabama at the rate the Gators have played lately, and Tennessee could totally lose to Ole Miss or Auburn, but they seem to care a lot nowadays and probably won’t. If State survives Georgia, that’s a tough game for Vandy to win. They dropped the regular season game at home thanks to a complete disaster in the last five minutes of that game, so hopefully they’ll get the ship right for this one. NAUTICAL HUMOR!
Saturday, March 10
Semifinal 1, 1 p.m., ABC
Semifinal 2, 3:30 p.m., ABC
Sunday, March 11
Championship Game, 1 p.m., ABC
ABC has these games? Weird. Go Cats and Go Dores.
