NCAA Bracket Predictions (Horns Underrated?)

From Bill Connelly over at SB Nation.

NCAA Bracket Predictions in which Florida State makes the Final Four

He has this to say about Texas:

Underrated: Texas. The Longhorns barely sneaked into the Field of 68, needing a nice win over Iowa State to confirm their bid. However, this ridiculously young team was close to something much better. Of their 13 losses, eight came by six points or less. As one would expect from a young team (of eight current rotation members, six are freshmen), they struggled to close out games, but most of the freshmen are pretty seasoned at this point. Plus, the 'Horns have one of the most dynamic streak shooters in the tournament in J`Covan Brown. Cincinnati is not dynamic enough to run away from them, and if they internalize their lessons learned during this tough season, they could make a nice run. Or not, of course.

I like Texas heading into this tourney. Pressure's off, lower seed. Just go play. Hopefully J'CB is on and Yancy Gates coldcocks Ted Valentine on the way to floor. Win win.

Zip 'em up, J'Covan.

Also worth checking out, our buddies over at The Rathskeller.

Be excellent to each other.
