Beauty of the tourney, like fantasy, is the unexpected


As an NFL talent evaluator, it probably goes without saying that my personal preference for football over basketball makes me an impartial voter in this debate.

The best aspect of both the NCAA tournament and Fantasy Football is the same that makes scouting fun -- the discovery of that "diamond in the rough."

Watching George Mason battle their way into the Final Four three years ago is what sports is all about. I'm sure fantasy footballers get the same elation when they feel they get a late round steal at their draft, or when pro general managers discover their own Sunday steal during the actual draft.

Despite my preference for football in general, there is no better one-month experience in sports than March Madness, especially when correctly picking a low seed to go far.
