Old Father Gumption and his mistress, Lady Luck, have together whittled the NCAA bracket down to sixteen. Eight games arrive Thursday and Friday. Only poetry can provide a prediction of the outcome. Poetry with YouTube links, that is.
2009 Sweet 16 Bracket Prediction Poem
Forget the past. '08 is just a memory.
Mizzou falls to the cats from Memphis, Tennessee.
Sorry, Purdue. You beat Huskies from Washington,
But Calhoun earns top dollar, so your time is done.
Xavier, in a down year, brought back super yields,
Until the crash. Meet Tyrell Biggs and Levance Fields.
The Pope declares: hatred of Duke is not a sin.
Duke gets the calls, no doubt. But 'Nova gets the win.
Gonzaga brings their A-game against UNC;
The spirits forecast Heytvelt over Psycho-T.
The Orangemen hope to dominate Blake Griffin's squad,
However, sadly, nothing rhymes with Devendorf.
The Arizona Wildcats--only 12th seed left--
Will take the game from Louisville. A major theft.
Lastly: this year's Kansas takes on Izzo's crew.
'08 is just a memory. Winner: MSU.
