They (NCAA) layed a mine field

for Wichita State. The Mid West is brutal. Kentucky is playing very well and is a 8 rseed and LVille as a four. Who ever makes it out is my favorite to win it all. Luv Baylor ov Nebraska from a betting angle.

Pete, I think the committee made it very clear how they felt about the AAC conference. Louisville #5 in the polls gets a 4 seed overall? SMU doesn't even get in and Memphis & UConn with lower seeds than expected. Plus, they put 3 of the 4 in the same region? Very strange

I think the committee got the American correct. The conference seems small. Small guards, bigs aren't that big. Louisvilles only top 25 wins are against other conference teams that seem now to be overrated. They lost to bigger teams like Kentucky and North Carolina. With that said, Manhattan is big. Its tough to judge Manhattan because they haven't played anyone but they play 11 and will pressure Louisville. This will be an interesting game...

agreed...they did not think much of the AAC

But Louisville being in as a 4 just pisses them off...I say they make it the Final Four and maybe even the Title game, I have Louisville being the 2nd strongest team behind Florida. SMU will probably win the NIT.

Florida is a great team...but I have they bracket being the strongest overall. Kansas, Ohio St, Syracuse. UCLA, Pittsburgh...all strong teams....all in the same bracket.

In the West, although Wisconsin can score better than in past years, I think Oregon beats them in 2nd round. Think Creighton could be playing Arizona to win that Bracket. Thinking N Dakota St beats Oklahoma (5-12 mathcup) then either Oklahoma St/Gonzaga <<

Tennessee should win the play in game and could beat Duke 2nd rd.

I like Wichita but they will have to beat Kentucky then Louisville then either Tennesse1/Duke or Michigan. In that bracket I like Xavier to beat NC St and then beat St. Louis. (5-12 matchup)

Virginia will struggle vs Memphis and may lose to Michigan St. Think NC Central will be tough for Iowa St. I think Villanova wins the bottom half of that bracket.

Can't wait to get started on all the other games tomorrow..CBI, NIT and CIT




Just Remember...it's not about how fast they run, how high they can jump or how well they can shoot the ball...when it comes right down to it....it's just about the POINTS!!

Villanova is overrated and does not deserve a #2 seed.

I agree emotion is big, that's why Arizona losing to UCLA may be the best thing for them. Also, remember if picking Oregon over Wisconsin, that game is played in Milwaukee. there will be a lot of Big 10 fans there.
