Punks Playoff Picks

Originally published on LaxSpot.com on 5/9/08

Punk loves the playoffs!  Time to separate the punks from the nerds.  Predicting the outcomes for the ‘08 playoffs will be harder than ever this season with all the ‘parity’ out there this year.  Punk even has the scoop on who’s going to take the women’s championships too. 
D1 Mens:  - I guess my prior picks were wrong seeing that Georgetown didn’t even get into the tourney.  How’d I not see that coming?

First Round
:  
Duke over Loyola
Ohio State over Cornell
Johns Hopkins over Hofstra
North Carolina over Navy
Syracuse over Canisius
Notre Dame over Colgate
Maryland over Denver
Virginia over UMBC

Quarterfinals:
Duke over Ohio State
Johns Hopkins over North Carolina
Syracuse over Notre Dame
Virginia over Maryland

Semis:
Duke over Johns Hopkins
Syracuse over Virginia

Finals:
Duke vs Syracuse - Winner TBA!

Cuse has had a great season, but so has Duke.  This game will be high scoring.

D2 Mens:
First Round (May 17th)
Lemoyne over Bryant
Limestone over NYIT

Finals:
Lemoyne vs Limestone - Winner TBA!

D3 Mens:
First Round:  It already happend on Wednesday but Punk would’ve picked all the winners.  OWU, Bowdoin, Springfield, WNEC

Second Round:  
Cortland over Springfield
Middlebury over Bowdoin
Ithaca over Williams
Saint Lawrence over WNEC
Salisbury over OWU
Haverford over Cabrini
Washington over Lynchburg
Gettysburg over Denison

Quarterfinals:
Cortland over Middlebury
Ithaca over Saint Lawrence
Salisbury over Haverford
Gettysburg over Washington

Semis:
Cortland over Ithaca
Salisbury over Gettysburg <–Punk flipped this from his 4/30 picks

Finals:
Cortland vs Salisbury - Winner TBA!

Yes for the third straight year these two powerhouse state universities will face off in the D3 finals.  Punk expects to see lots of tight shirts and gold chains on one side and shaggy hair and madaras shorts on the other.  A standard NY vs MD battle.

Now time for the ladies.  Gotta love the ladies!  I think their sticks are better than guys after watching some top teams play this season.

Vanderbilt over Princeton
