Torres Pod: Aaron makes his NCAA Tournament bracket, Final Four and national title picks

It's a special episode of the Aaron Torres Pod, as Aaron picks every game of the NCAA Tournament, giving you his Final Four and national title picks! Here's a full rundown:

West Region (2:00): Aaron opens in the West Region, where Gonzaga is favored but has a tough path. Will UConn and Arkansas get to Round 2 and what could that matchup look like, and could Memphis pull off the upset against the Zags? Also, what about the bottom half of this bracket, and where will the Coach K retirement tour end?

East Region (23:00): Next, Aaron goes to the East - where he wonders whether the No. 2, 3 and 4 seed are actually better equipped to win this region than the No. 1. He hits on whether Kentucky is versatile enough to get to New Orleans and should the Wildcats be worried about a second round date with Murray State. Finally, he shares the double-digit seed he believes will make a run to the second weekend.

South Region (39:00): Next, Aaron goes to the region of death, the South, with four elite teams at the top. How worried is he about Kerr Kriisa's ankle, the one team being undervalued and also, why the entire NCAA Tournament bracket could rest on a potential Villanova-Tennessee Sweet 16 game.

Midwest Region (55:30): Finally, a discussion on the Midwest Region. Is Kansas due for an early exit, and if so, who could get them? Also, is Auburn better-suited for a run than most expect, and could a surprise team end up in New Orleans?
