Greg Ballard, the mayor of Indianapolis, feels confident that Indiana University can win it all this year. Like many other politicians, Ballard filled out his 2013 NCAA tournament bracket this week. You probably could have predicted that he would pick the Hoosiers to win it all. What you may not have seen coming is that he picked them to win every game — as in, even the ones they aren’t playing in.
How long did it take Ballard to fill in his bracket? If you figure out how long it takes the mayor to write “IU” 63 times, you have your answer. Reddit user backnblack92 summed up Ballard’s selections perfectly.
I mean he had IU, IU, IU, and IU, when the obvious choice would’ve been IU, IU, IU, and IU … And seriously in the South region his upset of IU over IU is just ridiculous. Wtf was this guy smoking? There is no way that IU comes out on top in that one. IU will wipe the floor with them.
I think the midwest sweet 16 matchup of IU vs IU could end up being one of the better games this ...

TEAM TO BEAT: Indiana. The Hoosiers have been the favorite to win the National Championship all year long. They've shown quite a few weaknesses, but there isn't a team in the field that could dominate this tournament like Indiana. TEAM THAT WILL WIN THE REGION: Indiana. I think they have an easy road to the Elite 8, where they will meet Miami or Marquette. While both...

As Indiana enters the 2013 NCAA Tournament, expectations couldn’t be higher. After winning the regular season Big Ten title, the Hoosiers are battle tested and possess the experience and talent necessary to make a run to this year’s Final Four in Atlanta. If that run is to become reality, there’s plenty Indiana must do well to continue advancing in the tournament.

The East Region is lead by the Indiana Hoosiers who finished 27-6 and were upset by Wisconsin 68-56 in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament. The Hoosiers finished the season just 3-3 with other loses to Minnesota and Ohio State. This is the region that will screw up every ones brackets. With teams like Marquette, Syracuse and Butler to cause some chaos.TV Schedule (EST...
When it comes to the NCAA Tournament, the East is usually full of heavy weights from the East Coast. This year, none of the usual suspects closed when they needed to and opened up the top spot for Indiana. The Hoosiers also failed to win their Conference Tourney, but they are a legit No.1 from a very tough Big Ten.
So it makes sense they are the odds on favorite to win the East when...
