Who do you want to win?? Me personally, I want the Richmond Spiders to win. It won't happen, but I can dream.

To be realistic though, I just don't want a #1 seed to win. And if Duke isn't a number one, than I also want them to lose. I think either Syracuse, Villanova, Kentucky, or Kansas will win it.

Dear NCAA,

Please let us in. Please.......please. Please? We'll only stick around for one round and then we'll leave. Pinky swear.

Kawhi Leonard and Malcolm Thomas of SDSU are rebounding freaks.

Scary to think they are only a freshman and junior.

Experience and talent wise, Kansas is the most complete team in the tourney. Who knows where my Louisville Cardinals will get sent. My guess is Milwaukee, Tacoma, or San Jose.

If Richmond beats temple today in the Atlantic 10 tourney than they could be looking at getting a 6 seed. Yesterday they came back and beat Xavier in OT.

BYU grabs a 7 against Florida (I expect the Gators to blow their doors off)

UNLV grabs an 8 seed.

WVU with a #2 seed.

NMPhinsFan
03-14-2010, 07:00 PM
I'm not happy, Montana is going to be tough.

Anthony Johnson is an offensive beast and they have a 6-11 and 7-0 guy on their roster.. our tallest players are 6-9.

Shutdown Anthony Johnson and we win, that's easier said than done though.

Ricky_Fan34
03-14-2010, 10:31 PM
I like Richmond's chances. St. Mary first, and then in all likelyhood Villanova, who Temple beat. Earlier in the season we beat Temple, so Richmond could make a run at it. I'm hoping they will anyway.

Should be a good tourney this year. I've got my eyes on UTEP.

This is the worst field I have ever seen, this is the weakest year in college basketball as long as I have been following it(since the early-mid 80s). I think this will be a very wide open tourney and I wouldn't be shocked if none of the 1 seeds made it to Indy.

Arsenal WV

Only one time in the last 20 tourneys has the BE sent teams to the FF in back to back years. I'd stay away from BE teams when filling out the brackets.

As long as Obuaku is back and healthy, I think Syracuse can make a run to it.

But the B.E. is by far the strongest conference in the country this season. I think WVU has a pretty simple road (minus elite-8 game vs. UK) And Nova can beat Duke without problems in my opinion.

I think Nova is overated. If they wind up having to play Richmond, they could be in trouble. Temple beat Nova and Richmond beat Temple earlier in the year. Also, Villanova has lost like 5 out of their last 7 I believe? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Richmond and Temple are both good teams out of the A-10. I thought Charlotte would be, but they fell off pretty bad.

Yeah Charlotte was in first at one point. Richmond thrashed Temple back in January. It's too bad they fell short yesterday. Richmond and Temple would have probably swapped seeds had they won. Can't wait to see what Richmond can do in the tourney though.. should be interesting.

They have the potential to make a run to the Elite 8 or Sweet 16. Ditto for Temple.

I'd be happy to even see them win a game. It's so rare and bizarre to me to see Richmond as a good team. For as long as I've followed them they have just been known to choke in crucial times. The exact opposite is what has taken place this year.

I recall that. Can't remember details but I do remember that is was a huge upset. I go to several Spiders games every year. I was there in 2009 for the big Xavier upset. Not sure if you know what game I'm talking about, but it was in February of 09 I believe.

Any Ever Win Ever In A Pool Or Something.

I am glad to say I won once in 2002 when i was 12 lol. Sad me beating those grown ups muhahahahaha

Only reason I won is cause I picked my favorite team to win it all Maryland and they did. An I Picked many of the upsets somehow lol cause of team name or colors LOL. But what made me win was Kent st I picked to the Elite 8. Only cause my name is Kenny and they had partial of my name in there's Ken so......lol I basically god incredibly lucky.

Any one else ever win!!! I'm on a 7 year drought wahhhh.

At this point, I don't really even care about my bracket anymore. All the upsets seemed too unlikely, so I strayed away from many of them.

Not all, but mostly. Meyer brought in guys like Tebow, James, and Harvin who were contributors to that team, and had Ryan Smith transfer in, but yes, the upperclassmen were Zook's guys. Zook knew how to find talent and bring it in, but once game day came, my god.

CedarPhin

That's pretty much it. Coker brought in Winslow, Taylor, Rolle, etc., and saved that class.
