Opening Round

No. 1 Kansas vs. No. 16 Austin Peay: Jayhawks don't scare me! Whenever I bark at birds all they do is run away! I also have a beagle friend named Austin and I sniff his pee all the time ... so go Austin's pee!

No. 8 Colorado Buffaloes vs. No. 9 Connecticut Huskies: I have a lot of husky friends, and I've never even heard of a buffalo? Are those things even real?

No. 5 Maryland Terrapins vs. South Dakota State Jackrabbits: I met a turtle and a rabbit at a petting zoo in Beverly Hills last weekend. The turtle was very nice and friendly, but the rabbit wanted nothing to do with me. I like turtles.

No. 4 California Golden Bears vs. #13 Hawaii Rainbow Warriors: Seeing as I was born in California, I'm supporting my home state.

No. 6 Arizona Wildcats vs. No. 11 Wichita State Shockers: This one wildcat tries to invade my backyard every now and then, but runs in terror when I show my teeth.

No. 3 Miami Hurricanes vs. No. 14 Buffalo Bulls: Rain scares the crap out of me.

No. 2 Villanova Wildcats vs. No. 15 UNC-Asheville Bulldogs: One of my best friends is a bulldog named Beau who lets me ride in his wagon. This one's for Beau!

No. 5 Baylor Bears vs. No. 12 Yale Bulldogs: (Bull)dogs trump all!

No. 7 Oregon State Beavers vs. No. 10 VCU Rams: Beavers like to chew on things and so do I.

Harlan Wisconsin

No. 8 USC Trojans vs. No. 9 Providence Friars: I want to go to there when I grow up. Go Trojans!

No. 4 Kentucky Wildcats vs. No. 13 Stony Brook Seawolves: How did so many cats get into this tournament?

No. 3 West Virginia Mountaineers vs. No. 14 Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks: As a serious mountain hiker, this is a no brainer.

No. 7 Wisconsin Badgers vs. 10 Pittsburgh Panthers: My dad is my hero and he went to Wisconsin so I'm pretty sure they'll go far. Especially in round one against those oversized cats!

No. 2 Xavier Musketeers vs. No. 15 Weber State Wildcats: Enough with the cats already!

No. 8 Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. No. 9 Butler Bulldogs: Yay, more bulldogs! Beau must be so proud :)

No. 6 Seton Hall Pirates vs. No. 11 Gonzaga Bulldogs and No. 3 Utah Runnin' Utes vs. No. 14 Fresno State Bulldogs: OK, I'm happy for all the bulldogs in this tournament, but where are the corgis?!

No. 7 Dayton Flyers vs. No. 10 Syracuse Orange: I don't see colors very well, so I don't understand how something "orange" (if that is your real name!) could beat anything.

Final Four

No. 9 Connecticut Huskies: I may have small legs I'm a big dog at heart

No. 7 Oregon State Beavers: I think I was a beaver in another life. Just friendly, furry animals looking to chew on sticks!

No. 7 Wisconsin Badgers: Had to make dad proud ... but hey, they made it last year.

No. 9 Butler Bulldogs: Highest seeded canines in the tournament!


Harlan Bracket

No. 9 Connecticut Huskies vs. No. 9 Butler Bulldogs: Obviously it's dog vs. dog in the finals (sorry, Dad), and I just don't think the Bulldogs have the stamina (sorry, Beau)!

Huskies all the way!
