Who are you favorites and number 1 seeds?

i think UCONN will be the overall number 1 seed. with Oklahoma, PITT, and UNC to follow as the other number 1's.

I dont think there will be all number 1 seeds in the final round like there was last year tho..

I don't know about the tourney yet, still a lot of big games to be played before then.

I am however PUMPED to watch Pitt vs. Uconn tonight!!! Pitt has been really hot lately, we'll see if they're a legit contender or not tonight. They'll have their work cut out for them, Thabeet is a shot blocking machine.

WOW!!!! What a game. Certainly the game could have been different if Dyson was healthy, but Dejuan Blair flat out PUNKED Hasheem Thabeet. Just bodied the hell out of him in the post, Thabeet looked really rattled. Pitt is absolutely a contender.

clemson made it a game in the end - harris played well for Michigan but almost blew it with the turnover around the 2 minute mark. that gave clemson the momentum at the end - u of m barely hung on

i did well yesterday but illinois messed me up. they played like absolute shiit the whole game but had a good run in the end.

i have michigan state winning it all (kind of hoping and wishing) but they are finally healthy for the most part

realistically - i think that PITT is going to take the national championship - they are the most dominant team when they are playing their game

dont count out the orangmen either. jonny flynn has the ability to completely take over the game.

you never know come march. i love it

Wow i'm doing pretty f@#$ing well so far...

26/28 thus far. Second one I missed was Dayton over West Virginia.

Better believe I picked Cleveland State over Wake Forest... they're up 29-12 early :-)


Western Tuck > Illinois was obvious to me, an overrated 5 vs. a HUGELY underrated 12... and you know Illinois lost Chester Frazier (their best player) like a week ago.

I picked Pitt to win it all. I don't think your Michigan State pick is that crazy, they are one of the deepest teams in the country, and in a crazy unpredictable tournament, that's just that many more players that can potentially catch fire.

I'm owning. I'm in 1st Place in my 55 man pool, 1st will payout like $400 or so if I can hold on.

Got 15 correct outta the sweet 16, Florida State being the one I missed.

I picked Gonzaga to upset UNC in the elite 8 though, which I'm extremely nervous about... wasn't planning on Ty Lawson being this healthy...

Yes I did. My secret to success in recent years with the NCAA tourney brackets has been to pick who you think could GET upset, and not to worry about who will do the upsetting. Wake, Illinois, Utah were all prime to be upset, so who they were playing wasn't as important to me.

All the prominent higher seeded teams are going to get SOMEONES best shot, because the lesser teams are all hungry as hell, dying to pull the upset, just gotta decide who's sketchy enough to give it up.

My bracket was DECIMATED this weekend, and I still might win. I worked out the math, of the 8 scenarios left, 4 win me 1st, 1 wins me 2nd, and 3 win me 3rd. Top 3 get paid so I'm in the money.


Kinda shows how dumb the scoring is in my pool, considering I have ZERO of the final four teams... I'm just riding my huge early lead from owning the first couple rounds.

In my pool you get the Round # (1,2,3,4,5 or 6) multiplied by the Seed #. So Arizona for example alone scored 36 points for me cause I picked them to win their first two games. Cleveland st. another 13 points, western tucky 12 points... kinda cheap.

Rewards you too much for picking early upsets and not enough for picking the teams that go deep.

Picking Michigan State over UCONN or Louisville isn't "no biggie"? GTFO. There were plenty of upsets throughout the tournament to suffice.
