A Bracket From Remus
As promised, the only NCAA Tournament bracket I got anywhere near was that of our resident dog, Remus. I advised him only so far as reminding him which schools had dog mascots and which were related to cats.
I did the actually filling of the bracket, but only because our canine friend lacks opposable thumbs.
Not surprisingly, Remus has three teams with dog mascots in his Final Four. The Georgetown Hoyas, Butler Bulldogs and Connecticut Huskies all advanced for R-dawg with his final pick being Ohio State.
A buckeye is of course a poisonous nut, thus reining supreme on the basis that all mascots would eat a buckeye and be bested in theoretical battle.
It’s interesting to note that not all dog mascots fared well in these picks. Remus had the Georgia Bulldogs losing in the first round. Apparently, he has some kind of feud with Georgia mascot Uga.
I’ll keep you updated on the progress of these picks. Also keep an eye out for more Remus news, new videos and much more.
