Mayor's not-so Final Four
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed owes a friendly apology to Louisville, Syracuse and Wichita State as he welcomes them to the Final Four. The mayor, whose tournament bracket is on public display near the Georgia Dome, correctly had Michigan coming out of the South region, but he had Duke, New Mexico and Miami joining the Wolverines.
Reed predicted that Syracuse and overall favorite Louisville would lose in the Sweet 16. He owes the biggest mea culpa to Wichita, the No. 9 seed out of the West. Reed predicted the Shockers would drop their opening game to Pitt.
