Powell’s POV: Now that we have the brackets, I’ll go with Richards over Lawlor, Fish over Moriarty, Tankman over Cross, and Shelley over TJP. I’m going with Richards over Fish, and Tankman over Shelley in an upset, followed by Richards topping Tankman in the finals. We’ll find out how wrong I am starting Saturday night.
