  •  Grimes bet against Kentucky (5+ / 0-)

    Grimes also screwed up.  If you go to the actual homepage of the article and read it in its entirety, Grimes had Kentucky losing to Wichita State in her brackets.  Whether it was a real bet or just for fun, not the best symbolism.

    •  Right... was gonna say the same thing (5+ / 0-)

      You can have secret sheets that you submit to the local pool, but if you are gonna release one to the press, it better say that teams from your state are gonna win.  Who cares if that sheet doesn't 'win'.

    •  slightly easier to defend (5+ / 0-)

      an informed pick of an undefeated #1 seed over a #8 as an honest pick of who she thought would win, though agreed her picking Kentucky to lose can be exploited. Still, if she released an ncaa bracket with Kentucky playing eastern Kentucky for the final she'd look like she was dishonestly pandering. like mitch!

      •  Yeah, but EKU isn't very high profile (1+ / 0-)

        And UK and Louisville, the biggies, have to play each other, and either of those two teams could conceivably win it all.  She could have picked Louisville to beat UK and Louisville to win it all, and that really wouldn't seem like pandering.

    •  She'll be forgiven for that. I don't think anyone (0+ / 0-)

      in Kentucky truly believed Kentucky would beat Wichita State. Our team has sucked this year. Had the potential to be great, but  it never really came together. Until Wichita State. We hadn't played that well all year. We may not play that well against Louisville on Friday.

      Even the rabid Kentucky fan base was highly doubtful of beating Wichita State. Even during the game, when the lead kept see-sawing back and forth, we could hardly believe it.

    •  Hey (0+ / 0-)

      I don't see how that matters,I am a die hard ASU fan,and I picked them to lose their game,reality usually overcomes sentimental loyalty.
