Phil vs. Dick

NCAA Allstate MayhemAt the NCAA Hall of Champions, Dick Vitale, ESPN college basketball analyst and one of the sport’s most recognizable icons, put his NCAA bracket-picking skills to the ultimate test against Punxsutawney Phil, the famous winter/spring predicting groundhog, as part of the Allstate’s March Mayhem Challenge. Allstate will make a monetary donation to Gobbler’s Knob to go towards the celebration of Groundhog Day and the V Foundation for cancer research on behalf of each competitor.

Vitale picked Louisville to make it to the Regional Semifinals against Villanova while Phil had Villanova winning the whole thing and Kentucky being beaten by Purdue.
