Well, peeps. I'm still on Clouds 9-10 and 11 along with other University of Houston alumni about the Cougars making the NCAA tournament field for the first time in 18 years.
I shed a tear for North Carolina and UCLA not making the tournament for the first time since 1966.
While we didn't get assigned to the South regional, UH is in the Midwest and have a tough opening round assignment with Maryland.
While I'm hoping my boys go a long way, gotta put sentimentality aside and put on the tournament prognosticator hat.
Unlike President Obama, I didn't pick North Carolina last year to win it but on my 2009 bracket I did have them in my Final Four.
You can peruse my 2007 and 2008 brackets as we see if I can improve on last year's results.
