And your 2008 NCAA champion is...
.. the University of Memphis Tigers!
In a highly calculated and scientific manner, I can with 100% confidence tell you that Memphis will defeat the Kansas University Jayhawks 74-71 this evening in the NCAA title game. You might be asking yourself, "how can he be so sure? How does he know?"
My answer? D.C. United told me. And if a soccer team determined it, then it must be so. Here's the breakdown: 15 picked Memphis to win (13 players, two coaches) and 14 picked Kansas to win (13 players, one coach). Following are their predictions:
15 pick Memphis, 14 pick Kansas
Those who think Memphis will win obviously think it will be a fairly high-scoring affair, while the Kansas supporters are relying on a more defensive battle. By totaling up the average score of all predictions, you'll see that we come to a 74-71 Memphis win.
If this isn't a completely foolproof way to determine tonight's winner, then I just don't know what is. Care to take a guess as to which player's prediction will be correct? I'm going with the well-informed Franco Neill and his 94-86 Memphis win.
