[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="638"]Yahoo Yahoo[/caption] Nelson County's Jeff Goodman (no relation to the guy with the stupid face on ESPN) knows a thing or two about college basketball.  Don't believe me?  Check his bracket.  Goodman correctly picked 47 of the first 48 games. “I’ve been saying it’s 40 percent knowledge and 60 percent luck,” Goodman told Yahoo Sports.  His lone miss in the first round: he picked Minnesota to beat Middle Tennessee State. Kentucky fans should cheer for Goodman's bracket to succeed, until the last game.  Goodman picked West Virginia to beat the Cats in the finals.  However, he does have a second similar bracket in his office pool, with Kentucky beating Bob Huggins in the National Championship game. “The sleeper I’ve been telling everyone all year long about is Bob Huggins [and West Virginia],” Goodman said. “I was trying to cover my bases.” Read about the asphalt foreman's picking process and see his full bracket at Yahoo Sports.
