The Florida Gators will play my alma mater Crieghton University in the first round of the NCAA Basketball tournament. So who am I for? Well, I will only say in the office pool, I've picked Florida to lose to Duke in the championship game (although in the Kinko's challenge on CBS Sportsline, I picked Florida to beat Duke). I know it's a longshot, but Florida probably won't be playing any SEC teams until the final 8, and then they'll be playing them on neutral ground. If you look at Florida playing teams outside of the SEC they were the number 2 team in the country, so why not?
