    March Madness is almost here. Who are your early final four picks?
    1)Syracuse
    2)Xavier
    3)UConn
    4)Kentucky or Duke (Never count out a coach who knows how to win)
    But I'd love to see an all-ACC Final Four: Virginia, Duke, UNC and Wake Forest

    My early picks ...

    1. Kentucky (the hands down favorite as of now)
    2. UNC
    3. Ohio State
    4. Michigan State

    Depending on the draws, Cuse, Kansas, Duke and Mizzou could all slide in here too. Florida State and Markquette are my Final 4 darkhorses.

    Great time of year!!!

    One Kansas team.... most likely KU... Wichita State rocks....
    battle hardy Kansas State could be a show.

    Others on my "like" list would include North Carolina and Michigan State (only so we could kick their butts).


    KU!!! University of Kansas!

    I doubt that Creighton will be among em, not if they performed like they did when they were crushed by Wichita State on their own home court.

    Shockers always let people down in March, and the surprise picks always love playing possum right before the tourney. The Bluejays are barely winning even after that blowout (three or four squeakers in the last week or so), so keep an eye out when revv it back up at tourney time.

    Thats a ridiculous assertion. They were still playing while "others" cough, cough, had long since faded....

    Nuff said...... we'll see what happens this year.

    I'm shocked you picked both Xavier and UCONN. Both started the season pretty well, but have been playing like shit lately, I don't even think their most optimistic fans think they're going to the Final Four. Mine are UNC, Missouri, Michigan State, and Marquette.

    Final Four:

    Michigan State.
    Duke
    North Carolina
    Kentucky

    Michigan State for the championship.

    So much for a rebuilding year. Preseason un-ranked. Predicted 4th in Big Ten.

    Go Green!!!!!!!!!1

    Holloway, Lyons and Frease are fighters. Literally. Don't underestimate Xavier. And UConn is always in the mix. Being defending champion always is an intangible advantage and motivator come tournament time.

    I hope UNC doesn't do an early flame out, but I just can't trust them. I'd like Miss State to do well because of Moutrie.

    ok...here it goes:

    1. UNLV

    2. DUKE

    3. Michigan State

    4. Xavier


    Syracuse is so over rated its pathetic - it will just go to prove once again, that Syracuse doing so well in the regular season - will just fade away into the sunset in the tournament...JB can't coach for shit....how many years and only 1 national championship? please......don't bet on Syracuse in any of your pools.

    you've been warned!

    Syracuse- The Orange zone is smothering.

    Kansas- Love the way Jayhawks are playing down the stretch.

    UNC- The Heels are playing lights out and impressive W at Cameron.

    Marquette- Love the Golden Eagles up tempo game.



    Note:


    Kentucky will lose in elite 8.

    Big 10 falls flat on face.

    VCU goes to elite 8.

    Big 12 and Big East do well in tournament.
