This choice was one that I had a hard time with, but my humans convinced me to go along with their recommendation. Between the Kentucky Wildcats and the West Virginia Mountaineers, the Wildcats won in my bracket. This game is still pretty early, so I don’t quite feel like I’ve betrayed canines everywhere, yet.
Sometimes in my dreams I pretend I’m a bear. Bears are engineered to run really fast and they’re really strong. Plus, a squirrel could never chicken-out of a chase by running up a tree if I were a bear … Ahem! Anyway, between the Baylor Bears and the Georgia State Panthers, the Bears would totally win.
Choosing between the Villanova Wildcats and the Lafayette Leopards was a little bit of a harder choice. They’re both felines, so technically they should both lose, but I had to choose someone. Ultimately, I chose the Wildcats because I’ve never seen a leopard before. I have seen cats, wild ones, and they are terrifying.
Take that, you silly cats!Of course there’s no question who would win in this game. Butler Bulldogs, all the way. I don’t even have to explain myself.
I gloated over my easy choice too soon, because with the Butler Bulldogs beating the Wildcats, they ended up again the Gonzaga Bulldogs! How am I supposed to choose? I looked to my humans for a little help on this one, and in the end I chose the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Disclaimer: I would have them both win if I was allowed to.
There are plenty of other match-ups in my bracket below, and even more games involving feline mascots that are sure to lose (I didn’t want to give them too much publicity). Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!
