In 2010, some aspects of the picking process have changed for the boys. Syracuse is a #1 seed (up from #3 last year), Josh has watched a lot of Syracuse games this season (and is not picking them blindly) and Alex is no longer picking teams based on logos. Instead he is now a U.S. State junkie which completely influences his bracket selection process. His picks (shown below - click to enlarge) feature three Texas schools in the Final Four and Tennessee trumping them all. Shockingly he has the Volunteers beating Texas A&M by a score of 1 to 2 in the Championship game. I'll let him slide on his pick of Vermont (16 seed) over Syracuse in round 1 (a state would always beat a city in Alex's book).
Josh once again picked Syracuse to win it all, beating Missouri in the National Championship. In a weird coincidence, he has Robert Morris making the Final Four again (he has them in his Final Four last year as the same #15 seed they are in 2010). Maybe it's because his middle name is Robert. I expect him to watch some of the day games with me this season (depending on how far the Orange go in the tourney). Lehigh is also a surprise Elite 8 team in the Josh bracket (shown below).
