A friend of mine posted on Facebook how her husband used the "Mascot Terror" method one year to pick his tourney brackets and won his office pool. With that in mind, here's the comparison of today's game:
I offer you Washington's mascot, a husky. Man's best friend. Sit, roll over, fetch, pull a sled across Alaska. Nice, but hardly intimidating.
Then I offer you North Carolina's mascot, a ram. Tough, scraping out a living on mountainsides. Oh, and UNC's live mascot, Rameses XVIII, killed his own father with a head butt. Let me let that sink in a little bit. He. Killed. His. Own. Father.
Advantage, Tar Heels.
