Gov. Rick Scott’s veto pen is getting bored of waiting for the legislative session, apparently. So he used it, or perhaps another, to fill out his bracket predictions for the 2015 NCAA Basketball Tournament.
Scott’s administration sent out a photo showing Scott handwriting his predictions on a bracket sheet -– pen in hand, reading glasses on his face.
His administration included what was supposed to be a rundown of the governor’s predictions in its release, but it came out looking more like alien code.
Though all of his predictions can’t be seen, he’s glad one Florida team is in the running during March Madness. The University of North Florida’s Osprey’s first Men’s NCAA matchup is Wednesday night against Pittsburgh’s Robert Morris University in Dayton Ohio.
“It’s the best time of the year for college basketball fans. I would like to congratulate all of the teams that have made the tournament field, with special congratulations to Coach Matthew Driscoll and the UNF Ospreys who will be representing Florida for the first time,” Scott said. “I hope they win in Dayton tonight so they can advance and beat the Duke Blue Devils. I hope all the players and fans have a happy and safe NCAA Tournament.”
This is UNF’s first March Madness appearance.
March Madness began Tuesday night with matchups between Hampton and Manhattan and BYU and Ole Miss. Hampton knocked out Manhattan 74-64 while Ole Miss overcame their largest deficit of the year, besting BYU 94-90.
