Welcome back everyone to the FIRST EVER GAMEDAYCOLE.COM NCAA MARCH MADNESS PICK EXTRAVAGANZA!  At the request of @WesReynolds1 I decided to see what I could put together in one single hour for NCAA hoops tournament picks.  I don’t generally watch much NCAA basketball, so I don’t know who half of these people are but I assume they are experts.  Take a look at all of the picks and make sure you credit me when you win your pool!
