    Go Bruins! (although I still haven't forgiven them for Saturday... at least 'SC lost to ASU also, that makes me happy)

    THE RETURN OF KANSAS!!! The National champs will return to the final four (albeit with a little luck). The magic is always there!

    And yet Michigan beat both of those teams and still might not even get into the tournament. I'm so disappointed yet again. icon_cry.gif

    UNC... hrmmm yeah no. Your best non-con win was Notre Dame, and look how good they ended up. Ya they beat Duke and Clemson but.. haha... c'mon... always overrrated. I was in CH last year for the final 4, and I swear i was on suicide watch. I predict this same type of result again, but not even to the elite 8.


    Speaking of Duke, losing the last 4 of 6 reminds me of the last 2 years... losing VCU first round and then WVU second round... and can they stop recruiting freaky looking players?


    Mich State... hrmmm big ten... right. Hey whats that, lost to Purdue by 20 tonight? Yeah... well see about that final four... Bail out whaaaaaaaat?

    UCLA has gotten what, 3 chances in final fours in a row and screwed it up each time. NEXT! And dont say ASU for the love of all that is holy, they should burn burn burn ... i went to Arizona... which will make the tourney after our 7 (soon to be 8 at ASU) game win streak. If you UCLA is losing to UW, us, and ASU, they're definitely not gonna make the Final four again.

    And Memphis? really? C-USA? Take that ECU and Tulsa... 22-3 record sounds great till we see who they lost too. Xavier (ok cool), Georgetown (oh that was reasonable in december but.. uh... wow.) and Syracuse.(see Georgetown). Best win...Gonzaga... and then... Seton Hall?? Ouch.

    Im thinking UConn or Pitt. OU is doing great and all but, the Big12 isnt doing so hot. And what was up with that Arkansas game???

    Bring on the Slings and Arrows! (not that kind of sling)

    blake griffin alone is why klahoma will win not to mention the other 4 shotguns they have.

    uconn...? thabeet is over rated just like noah from fl. yeah hes tall and can rebound. but thats it. dude is 7'3 and cant play any position outside 4 and 5. his pitiful excuse for a jumpshop aginst pitt alone should say something.

    and anyone that talked bad about duke and unc shoud be shot. they are what college sports is about. and regardless of how over or underrated they are they will always be the best two teams in the nation.

    tradition says a lot and any team that produces michael jordan can shit on anyone. enough said


    *these teams make it to the final four for a reason. no one has a perfect season. no one ever will. yeah mabye its the same teams but they are therer year in and year out.

    I posted about March Madness in the basketball forum before seeing this thread. I'm new to the forums. Does anybody organize a pool on Yahoo! for the tourney?

    The final four this year.. maybe a repeat of 1988?

    1. Kansas

    2. Oklahoma

    3. Clemson (We always have to have one from the ACC I suppose)

    4. UConn

    SportsOutdoor - Despite the name of the website, people rarely talk about sports. Glad you are here. I guess we could do a bracket on yahoo or ESPN or something. I play on facebook and at the office.

    Solidguy - Ah yes, Mich State... forgot about that... they just keep climbin up that rankings ladder but like I was saying... its still the Big 10. But ok you got that and ND. Still not that great. Its like the BCS Polls, you start out high, you lose a couple, and you are still high. Where are a team like Missouri who didnt start ranked, had to claw its way up. I smell a dark horse!

    For my 4, I'd say Pitt UConn OU and a dark horse as I dont see another stand out team. When the brackett is released, I would pick from the 16... mayb anout George Mason scenerio? But just for fun, I'll say Missouri. Go big or go home baby.

    1)PITT
    2)OKLAHOMA
    3)UNC
    4)UCONN


    WILD CARD IS KENTUCKY, MEEKS CAN SCORE HIS ASS OFF


    Pitt wins the tournament

    1) UNC - Too much talent.
    2) Pitt - Too much defense.
    3) Marquette - McNeal is a BEAST. Seem to still be somewhat under the radar at 22-4 because the Big East is ridiculous.
    4) Oklahoma - Blake Griffin. End of story.

    Wildcards: U of A (homer pick), Villanova, Gonzaga

    Sidenotes:

    - I don't like UCONN in the tournament. Thabeet was severely exploited by Blair in the past week. Having Dyson out will definitely hurt them..

    - Memphis is dangerous with Tyreke Evans now at the point, but I can't bring myself to giving Callipari's dumbass system any sort of legitimate credit.

    PITTTTSSBURGHHHHHHHHHH


    I love how we have 3 BIG EAST teams seeded at #1.

    The media only jerks off to the SEC, ACC, Big 10, Pac 10..

    Here in the East, we actually value playing, UGLY, UNAPPRECIATED, NOSE-DOWN DEFENSE, new rules et all. My upset would be BYU.

    It didn't help them much at the conclusion of the season did it? I think OU will fade.. although it would be nice to see them back in the final 4 against KU.......

    Is anyone having trouble filling out their brackets? Yahoo wont seem to let me choose who I want. The only thing that works is their automatic bracket fillers. Any suggestions?

    its doing the same thing for me to.

    and the east is very strong this year. even though i HATE uconn and pitt i have a feeling they will come back with a vengeance in the nit.

    BUT... i still play my money on unc. they are loaded this year
