In just about nine days from now college basketball fans will be filling out their brackets, hopeful of winning their office pool, or maybe picking a correct final four. Then, just a matter of days after that those same fans will get out their red markers and start cross off all those wrong picks.
That is because the 2010 NCAA tournament is basically up in the air. Unlike many years there is no truly dominant team. Syracuse makes a bid for it, but we have seen they are capable of losing. In fact, a lot of the better teams on the college basketball landscape are mid-major schools, New Mexico, Butler, Northern Iowa, and Cornell just to name a few.
