Myron Medcalf Might Be Psychic…

The Experts Are At It Again!

… Or maybe not.

ESPN’s Medcalf wrote some “Bold Predictions” for the Sweet 16. Let’s just say, he has been slightly off so far: Prediction Fail

Let me breakdown each of his points for Thursday –

Point #2: Stanford advancing over Dayton – Not even close. Stanford looked terrible.  I saw a few articles about Stanford heading into the Sweet 16 and could not understand the love. Dayton controlled the game the entire way through. +0

Point #4: Stanford vs Dayton will be the “Game of the Weekend” – That one was a joke, right??? +0

Point #6: UCLA will push Florida to the brink – I will give him a partial credit on this one. UCLA was not blown out, but Florida was in the lead pretty much the whole way and UCLA never really had the look of a team that was going to make a big run to take the lead. +0.5

Point #7: Overtime for Arizona vs SDSU – Again, I will give him a partial credit, but only because I am feeling generous. San Diego State did lead into the second half before Zona had worn them down, so at least he was correct in thinking that the Aztecs could hang with the Wildcats. +0.5

Point #8: Baylor Will Get Past Wisconsin – This was Medcalf’s biggest failure of the night! The Badgers destroyed Baylor from the opening tip in every aspect of the game. It was a fantastic performance for the Big Ten and I am very curious to see how Wisconsin matches up with Arizona. The winner of that game will be the team that controls tempo. +0

So Mr. Medcalf exits the opening night with a solid 1/5 on his predictions… How much is ESPN paying him again???
