Bracket Status: 5-of-8 Elite Eight Teams, 0-of-2 Final Four (Saturday), Kentucky and Kansas (Sunday), 36-of-58 Correct Picks (62 percent), 63.2 percentile on ESPN.
Similar to Davis, the lesson appears to be that talking about sports has absolutely nothing to do with an ability to fill out a bracket—though if you've ever listened to Cowherd on radio or television, his low bracket score is hardly a surprise.
In the South, Cowherd played it safe, which means he failed to predict VCU's upset over Wichita State, Colorado's defeat of UNLV, Xavier over Notre Dame and the more unpredictable Lehigh win over Duke.
South Score: 7-of-14 Correct Picks
We might have a theme here, as Cowherd also eliminated Louisville and Florida from contention well in advance of the Elite Eight or Final Four rounds.
To his credit, those two teams and No. 15 Norfolk State's opening victory were Cowherd's only miscues in the West Region.
West Score: 10-of-15 Correct Picks
A unique region for Cowherd, in the Midwest the ESPN host got virtually every middle-of-the-bracket pick wrong, though he correctly picked UNC and Kansas to meet up in the Elite Eight with a Kansas victory to send the No. 2 seed to the Final Four.
Midwest Score: 7-of-14 Correct Picks
If Cowherd had stuck to his guns in picking the lower seed in the Round of 64, he would have been perfect: The East experienced no upsets in the opening round.
As it is, Gonzaga, Cincinnati and Ohio State remain the only three teams Cowherd failed to select in the Round of 64, Round of 32 and Elite Eight, respectively.
East Score: 12-of-15 Correct Picks
