THF NCAA Tournament Picks

I took a new approach this year. I decided to do gut feeling picks instead of spending any time studying the bracket and the teams. Why? Because I do not have time analyze the teams and I also figure what do I stand to lose. The tournament is utterly and completely unpredictable so it really does not matter if I spend six hours on making my picks or six minutes I usually end up with the same problems with my bracket. And yes I am taking UNC to win it all because I have no reason not to despite the media drooling over Texas and Georgetown. So here are my picks after the jump.
