I took Seton Hall in this one. In these matchups I always like the teams from the bigger conference. Bites me in the butt sometimes but thats the way i pick.

I like Wichita St. as well. Oklahoma is also playing UW-Mil in the next 30 mins. I like the upset with UW.


I'd love to see a Winthrop upset over Tenn. :yes:

For the early games today I have Wichita State, UW-Milw, & BC.

I made a bold pick for the championship, Texas v Nova with Nova winning it.

My big upsets are Seton hall beating Witchita ST then Tennessee (one of the worst 2 seeds ever), Georgetown beating Florida in the sweet16, and West Va over Duke in the Elite 8.

I definitely have a big east bias but theyre the best conference (by far imo) and so Ill take my chances.

Seton Hall proved the FRAUD they were today! Never even put up a fight vs Witch St. They are down 14 with 5 min to go as I type this, they have been down by 20 pretty much all game. What a joke!

You have the likes if FSU, Mizz St, Cincy and others who would at least showed up and put up a fight today. I even picked Seton Hall to win their 1st game, so they fooled me as well.

I've gotta go with Nova. They run the same offense we did in high school with 4 guards & 1 big man. I love Allen Ray & Randy Foye but I can't stand Mike Nardi & his hip shots.

I have Florida and UConn playing on the other side of the bracket. UConn and Duke in the final game and Duke winning. How do you guys have the final four? my brother had Nevada in the final four, I have to dog him on that :lol:

Sure am glad to see Alabama win. My bud started a leauge thing to where you pay a dollar for a team and you stick with them through the whole tournment. Whoever drew the team that wins it all will get all of the money. So that person will get like 50-60 dollars worth. I drew Alabama and now I hope to see them dominate.

Don't know if you're watching it or not, but it's a good game. Either team could win it. There's about 3 and half minutes left and Indiana can tie it up with a FT on a 3 pt play.

I got the two most talented teams in the country, IMO Uconn and Texas playing in the finals. I was tempted to go with all chalk and see how that would've played out it's tough going with lower seeds because usually there are a few that are considered giant killers but I seem to always pick the wrong one. Anyway if Wichita St. beats Pearl's team i'll be very happy with my bracket.

Nice start for the Big East, they obviously did not deserve 8 teams and while the conf was the best this year it was not as great s many told us. After the top 2 it is mediocrity.

What happened to duke? Southern was in that game midway through the 2nd half. Not a good start for them but it doesn't matter how many you win by just as long as you win.

I had a great opening day going 15-1 which means my picks today will suck but as long as I get the UNC pick correct I don't mind.

.

Oh please. Seton Hall was the 8th team in and Cincy SHOULD have got in over them, place them blame on the committee for that. Marquette and Syracuse BOTH lost to teams from a Big 6 conference (Alabama and Tex AM). It isn't like they lost to San Diego St or Iona!

And let's see what the big dogs (UCONN, Nova, Pitt, G'town, and WV) do before we tear apart the Big East.

yes b/c cincy has such a great history in the Tiurney that they were guaranteed to get a win:lol: Cincy and SH didn't deserve to be in.

The BE CHAMPS lost in the 1st rd for the SECOND straight year.

The big dogs of the BE and 'Nova and UConn, after that it's mediocrity.

yeah Georgetown beat duke but anything can happen in one game. 2 years ago UConn won it all and Carolina beat them and we wound up being a 6 seed in the Tourney. Anything can happen in 1 game.

I said the BE was the best conf this year BUT in a very down year for CBB. people have called thhis an all-time great yar and that is a complete joke. The truth is it is good, has a couple of big time teams at the top and the rest are not that good. Teams like Pitt, SU, marqueet all built up their records w/ creampuff non-conf scheds then beat up on the lower half of the BE which is horrible.

The BE fans wasnt us to believe this is some super conference that will be the best from here on out well in year 1 it was a huge diappointment and in most years the ACC will still be the best.

After all the BE has sent just 4 teams(SU twice and UConn twice) to the FF sine 1990. Carolina alone has 7 FF's in that span.

Built up their record vs creampuff non-conf????? WHy should Big East teams play tough non-conference??? When your playing the #1 and #2 team in the country MULTIPLE times, what incentive is there to play tough non-conference schedule? It can only hurt you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not to mention Cincy and Syracuse had Top 5 SOS this year. Yeah, some creampuffs! :shakeno:

And G'Town played DUKE out of conference and won. I guess they were just padding their record! :shakeno: Syracuse went 23-12, out of the 12 losses, 10 of them were to NCAA tourny teams.The 2 that weren't were to Cincy (should have been a tourney team) and Depaul on a night where they shot 41-66 fromt he field and could have beat NBA teams that night when you make 41 field goals!!!!!

And an ACC fan with the likes of VT, Wake Forest, and GT, and UVA are gonna tell me about the lower half of the Big East? 4 of the 12 teams in the conference were at .500 or worse! While in the Big East 4 out of the 16 were at .500 or worse! SIMPLE MATH!!!!!The ACC teams beat up on the creampuffs. That is clear as day.

No, neither one distinguished themselves all year, SU only got in b/c they got hot for a few days and Marquette got in laregly on beating nonbody in the non-conf and 1 win over UConn in I think Williams' first game back.

I keep seeing this argument from BE fans, the ACC has been the best conference in most years yet every year the Heels play a difficult non-conf sched. They play the best teams in the best conf and also a tough non-conf sched. It's good for the team's b/c it toughens them up and it's good for the game.


Not to mention Cincy and Syracuse had Top 5 SOS this year. Yeah, some creampuffs!

The RPi is nonsense and you know it. it ranked the Big 10 as the #1 conf, do you agree w/ that?

The BE teams were vastly overrated, in a very down year(thanks in large part to the early defections from ACC teams) they had 2 big time teams and a bunch of mediocrity. I do agree it was the best but it was not dominant and not great. This was not like 1985.

Nice start for the Big East, they obviously did not deserve 8 teams and while the conf was the best this year it was not as great s many told us. After the top 2 it is mediocrity.

What happened to duke? Southern was in that game midway through the 2nd half. Not a good start for them but it doesn't matter how many you win by just as long as you win.

I had a great opening day going 15-1 which means my picks today will suck but as long as I get the UNC pick correct I don't mind.


your way to critical, cmon think here...obviously theres not going to be alot of blow-outs, the NCAA tourney is about surviving every game. how can you say duke got off to a bad start, you could say the same for BC and Tennesse but i gurantee at least one of them makes the elite 8....

This game was EXACTLY what UConn needed. They're winning it all now. Bank on it. They're going to whomp Arizona and whoever the sweet 16 opponent is. Once they do that, there's no stopping them.

The danger, I think, with Connecticut was not that they'd lose to Villanova or Duke (though they did lose to Nova earlier this year), but that they'd get lazy and disinterested, and lose in the 2nd or 3rd round to an inferior team.

Calhoune is a great coach but I am starting to question his greatness. He has by far the most talent on any 1 team. ESPN was saying there are at least 7 future NBA players on that current team. And for about 3 weeks now that team has done almost nothing and been in dog-fights with teams they should be just blowing out (ND, L'ville, Syracuse, Albany!)

Calhoun turned Connecticut basketball into into 1 of the top 5-10 programs of the last 20 years and top 2 over the last 10.. I think it has more to do with this group of players being lazy, his record for the last 20 years speaks for itself.. Uconn was a pretty awful program before he took over..

Sometimes it's just a bad mix of players and sometimes it's just laziness as they know they are more talented and don't work as hard. If the Heels of last year played as hard as this year's group they would have been undefeated and know one would have come close to beating them but they had so much talent they put it in cruise control at times and I think UConn has done the same thing although I don't think this UConn team touches last year's Heels and they are more ripe for an upset.

I thought GW was a lousy matchup for Duke, but they handled them without too much trouble. LSU is the Shania Twain team of this tournament: they don't impress me much. They SHOULD have the athleticism to give Duke a problem, but they had problems with Iona and needed a last-second 3-point bomb to beat A&M. Can't play like that against the Blue Devils. I think Duke's road is pretty well paved; they already thumped Texas this year.

It's the truth. Of the 3 teams currently in the Final there are only two players that have NBA talent, Davis & Thomas from LSU.

I beg to differ.

Your exact reasons you mentioned are why this will be a GREAT Final Four. The Cinderellas. George Mason!!??? Are you kidding?

The vast majority of college fans don't give a FLYING DIAHRREA about the NBA. Especially not right now. They don't care who's going where in the lottery.

Put together the fact that a huge Cinderella has made it with the fact that two schools in already have HUGE fan bases in LSU and UCLA, and possibly a third if Florida wins.

This will be a great Final Four. It's not about the NBA at this time of the year.

This is good parity but not good for the NCAA & ratings.

actually, Farmar and Affalo would be first round picks this year and next year. Farmar is one of the best PGs in the country.

Florida will make the final four after they beat Nova and they have tons of NBA talent. Florida will win it all. It will be Florida and UCLA in the final game. yes I said UCLA, LSU just doesn't have a guy with a good 3 point shot. UCLA has a good defense and will shut down LSU.

UCLA also has good NBA talent, you don't get this far if you don't

...and Uconn only beat LSU by 1. And it was in Hartford.

They shouldn't of. Uconn is overrated and this is coming from someone who lives in CT. Rudy Gay is the most overrated overhyped player in the NCAA. The guy couldn't gaurd a chair and on offense he still doesn't take over games like he should with the way people make him out to be. Also Marcus Williams is one of the worst pg's i've seen he reminds me of a streetballer.

Gay is actually a pretty good defender, he just takes too many fakes. But yeah he is overrated.

I like Williams as well, he'll be a lotto pick after how he performed, but IMO he's not as good of a PG as Farmar or Lowry.

UConn as a team was very overrated. I remember listening to an interview the whole team did during the Mawuii invitationatl, and they were saying if the whole team stayed healthy, they were Final 4 locks. They bought into their own hype, and never play hard throughout a game. In 99 they had Rip, a guy who would break your heart and stomp on it, in 04 they had Gordon(who was an unstoppable guard), and Okafor (who was the most dominant force in college basketball that year).

Will Thomas massively upgraded his stock in the NBA today. And who's to say Skinn couldn't become a great NBA backup point guard? The guy doesn't quit and has a smooth stroke.

About Gay he's a pretty bad defender he gaurded well in the tournament but the guy can't gaurd a chair. If it wasn't for his hieght and those long arms he'd be absolutely horrible. He's the one that blew the tournament last year he let that guy go right past him for the easy shot to win the game.

Yeah but as i said he's not playing hard and seems to be saving himself. If he woke up and played defensive instead of being one dimentional (don't know how to spell) then he would be the #1 pick and Uconn would be in the the final four. i garentee it.

No doubt. UCLA did *NOT* impress me at all against Memphis. And Florida has George Mason. Of course, if Mason can beat Connecticut, UNC and Michigan State (3 of the last 6 NCAA champs, including the last 2, I might add), they can sure as heck beat Florida.

But the smart money would be on a LSU-Florida final. That depresses me, personally; given the choice of a Gators-Tigers football game and this, I'm fairly sure that the vast majority of both student bodies would opt for football. Someone once said the SEC has 10 football schools, 1 basketball school (Kentucky) and 1 academic school (Vanderbilt). There's a lot of truth to that. It would be like seeing Duke vs. UNC in a college bowl game.

that's true, but it's games like these that ignite the passion in other sports for the universities' fans. right now they would take football over basketball, obviously, but if they keep it up, they will have plenty of more passionate fans.

VEGAS wants GM to win it also. Because NOBODY put money on them this year to win this tourney. So, Vegas will just make a boatload of money if they actually win this thing.

Now, if Florida wins...........VEGAS will be jumping out of high-rises. I guess at the start of their early run back in Nov/Dec a bunch of people laid money down on them at 70-1 or 75-1. And are just waiting to cash in right now.

Dee Brown?!? The same guy who shot a rip-roaring 36% from the field this year? I love his quickness, but he's TJ Ford with a worse shot. Williams is the only one I would definitely rate ahead of Farmar. Farmar's stats are solid, and one has to remember that they're somewhat depressed by the slow-paced offense the Bruins play. After Williams, Farmar will be the best pro of the bunch.

:eek:
Did you watch even a minute of the NCAA tournament? Williams dished effectively and tried to get his teammates going. Problem is, Gay and Boone play when the spirit moves them, Armstrong is inept offensively, and Brown and Anderson can't play at the same time. Williams took over at the end, only when needed; he didn't dominate the ball. His play was a lot closer to Steve Nash than Allen Iverson.
