Clara picks Pitt to win it all

It is a sad day in the Nobles house. Our daughter is not even a year old, and she is already starting to question her parents' sports allegiances.

Karey and I, being rabid Syracuse Orange fans, are of the belief that this is their year. A #1 seed, a balanced attack and the best coach in NCAA basketball. There is no way this team isn't Final Four bound.

Clara doesn't agree.

This morning we gave her the chance to pick the entire 64 team field and completely on her own, she went with the Pittsburgh Panthers over our beloved Orange. Our only saving grace is that she does believe Pitt will win the entire tournament.

Here is a short video that shows how she picked her bracket. It includes the fateful pick of Pitt over SU.


For the record here is the little lady's Final Four:
Pitt over Kansas
Villanova over West Virginia
Championship: Pitt over Villanova

You can see and follow her entire bracket by clicking here.

Some other tid-bits- She likes the hometown Siena Saints to make a run to the Sweet 16 and she thinks Murray State pulls off a first round upset. Her biggest shocker, (We are calling it the Clara upset special): 15 seed UC Santa Barbara over Ohio State. (Sorry Aunt Ashley and Uncle Adam)

Post your Final Four picks in the comments so we can see where you stack up with Ms. Clara.

Ha ha... no bracket for me (you know college football is my sport.) Villanova barely won today! Was Clara getting nervous while she watched that game??? :)

This is hilarious! I am sure Clara is probably right. She seems pretty smart :) Lou would totally disagree with her though...I am pretty sure he thinks SU is going all the way this time.

This honestly made me laugh out loud! You guys are hysterical...
so glad you're enjoying your pretty lady:)

Uncle Adam is thinking about disowning you for not picking his beloved Buckeyes! You still picked better then your Daddy, by not having Georgetown in the final four! :)

Obviously you were doing the pacifier in/pacifier out readings backwards. You need to recalculate her decisions using the reverse.

This is so sweet! My hubby is a college basketball coach, so our lives completely revolve around "the dance" at this time of year. I can't wait to someday have brackets for our kids (he already picks one for our niece and his two grandmas). Personally, I am a Terps fan - Gary reminds me of my late uncle (and who doesn't 'fear the turtle'?).

K, I showed this video to my mom today, she really laughed and loved it! Little Clara is such a joy and I must say that R is quite hysterical serious.
