March Madness poll: How good is Stanford? 

"It's nothing personal, but you're clueless," says ESPN columnist Gene Wojciechowski, noting that the guys at Las Vegas Sports Consultants pay their bills on the hunches of "squares" like us. Are we really that out of it? Maybe yes, maybe no. Vote in the Examiner poll and see how you stack up against the rest of us.

We challenge you to prove Wojciechowski wrong.

"You fill out your office pool brackets or make a legal or illegal bet without any substantial information," he says. "You'll take the Dookies because you're a former Cameron Crazy, or you just have 'a feeling,' or you saw them crush so-and-so on the plasma a couple of weeks ago."

And that's not all. Wojciechowski says one of the reasons we "squares" are such losers is that we almost always pick the favorites. 

Well, what do you say? How well will the Cardinals do? Will they beat the odds?
