With the tourney upon us, I'm ready to start my picks for the play-in games.  Yes, I know that it's called the first four or the first round or some such ridiculousness, but it's still really a play-in game.  I'll be picking every game in the tournament again this year, so in a few weeks I'll look smart, dumb, or just tired.  That's why they play the games!  So without further ado, my play-in picks:


North Carolina A&T -3 vs Liberty

Middle Tennessee St +3 vs St Mary's


LIU Brooklyn -1.5 vs James Madison

Boise St -1.5 vs LaSalle

Let's hope these bad boys start off the tourney with a bang!  Make sure to check here throughout the tournament for my full slate of picks (and the humility it brings) and definitely check out the tourney special that is up now.  We'll be back Wednesday breaking down the gambling action on the first round and I'm taking Friday afternoon off from the D and D Empire LLC mail room to watch games and tweet like a drunken madman.  You don't want to miss that!  Sign up for the Doctor and Dude bracket group over at ESPN and join in for the glory.  Good times!
