The only thing that sucks is that I love picking upsets more than any1, but I have said since last April the team that more than likely end up the #1 seed (UNC) will win it all. I hate taking the top overall seed, its no fun and lacks creativity.

Eh, my final four came out

Louisiville vs Memphis - alot of people probably got this, and it's the appealing matchup but what are the odds they really play.


Pitt vs UNC - I could easily see UNC getting upset, Pitt too, been such a crazy year I don't know if I like the idea of three #1 seeds in my final four.


Probably mess around with it alot more, though Robert Morris is my surprise team this tourney.

BRAVEHEART

03-15-2009, 11:10 PM
I like UCLA to make some noise.

I think I'm going with three 12s in the first round.

It's fun to get cute but IMO the chalk seems to be the best way to go here again this year. Memphis will be popular to pick over UConn, but the #1s are the best bets IMO.

yodabear
03-16-2009, 01:11 AM
Aw man, I just did mine for this, its chalk city for me, I hate being normal. 7 lower seeds winning on the first round, this from a guy that picked UT-Arlington in the first round last year. The 7 "upsets" I picked (where the lower seeded team won) 10 USC beating BC, 9 A&M over BYU, 11 Utah St over Marquette due to the fact I will not pick the cross city rival of my school, 10 Maryland over Cal (everyone is picking that), 9 Tennessee over Okla St, 11 VCU over UCLA, and 12 Western Kentucky over Illinois. I do have West Virginia and Clemson making the sweet 16, that is cool I guess.

All in all though
Elite 8
Michigan State over Louisville
UConn over Memphis
Pittsburgh over Villanova, who will yes, beat my Dookies in the Sweet 16
UNC over Syracuse, hate picking Syracuse to go that far, but I am not sold on the Sooners or just the Big 12 in general.

Final 4
Michigan St over UConn
UNC over Pittsburgh

Final
UNC 79, Michigan St 74

I wish I had testicles, GOOD DAY!

BRAVEHEART
03-16-2009, 01:28 AM
I don't understand why everybody is picking VCU over UCLA. I know it's a down year for them and they got upset by their rivals recently, but they are still a good ball club and one of the most disciplined teams in the country with one of the best coaches. They don't lose two games straight that often in the last ten years, and they'll be hungry.

As a USC fan I'd love nothing more than if they lost in the first round, but I know how good they are, and they aren't to be taken lightly at all.

VCU is a great team lead by a great PG in Maynor. I didnt know a lot about Maynor until STRIP told me about him, but he has climbed to maybe the top PG in the nation the more I see him. And people love the sexyness of the pick.

Maynor vs Collison will be epic, 2 of the top 10 guards in the college game. VCU is so damn dangerous. Maynor is one thing, but when Larry Sanders is on his game it's over. Also Joey Rodriguez has nasty 3 point range, Rozell, Burgess, and Gwynn are also guards capable of catching fire. The problem with this team will be when Sanders gets in foul trouble they don't really have a reliable guy. Pish might scare guys cause he's one ugly cat, but his skills are lacking, well at least he fouls hard. Saintil needs to step up big time. I am picking VCU to win but thats more homerism in me because UCLA is a good team, but I am still confidence in how VCU matches up. One upset no one is picking which people should look out for is American over Villanova. With NOVA's guard reliable play American can beat them. Cunningham is a good big guy but his damage is from the perimeter. American nearly beat Tennesee the 2 seed last year and that team is back but now with hungry seniors. Derrick Mercer and Garrison Carr is a top tandem in the country. Carr is a deadly scoring guard and Mercer is the defender and set up man. Brian Gilmore is playing out of his mind now and will give Cunningham fits with his ability to knock down the 3 as well as good athleticism to drive and finish. Hendra can also knock down shots. They can really pull off the upset as long as they get some sort of contribution from someone outside of the big 3. I love Scottie Reynolds but one thing is that he is shaken by tight man defense. Mercer the small but strong guard is one of the top and peskiest on the ball defenders in the nation. He will be hounding Scotty the whole game. Nova is better off letting Fisher take the ball up because Scotty will have a bunch of turnovers.

Just to let everyone know I have VCU in my elite 8 and chances are they will be bounced in the first round as well.

I've watched UCLA several times this year and have come away unimpressed. Past Shipp and Collison their roster is just really average, they had a pretty good year but in a weak conference and proved nothing to me in nonconference play.

Where are you having the most trouble? Mine has to be the bottom half of the MidWest bracket. I don't like Michigan State, I don't like Kansas, I don't like West Virginia. I honestly have WVU in the Elite 8 right now. Kansas is so young, Michigan State is poop. Ugh, I wish Wake had gotten the 3 seed here. They could have cleaned up.



Right now, it looks like I am going with Louisville/Memphis/Pitt/Oklahoma. I have UConn and UNC out at the Sweet 16.

Texas got an amazing bracket to play in. Duke has absolutely nothing inside, so Pittman and James can have a field day on them. Solid basketball thinking and a tad bit of homerism had me picking them to beat Duke.

Well you obviously haven't been keeping up much with this team then, because AJ Abrams has NEVER been the best player on the team. Damion James is hands down the best player. Justin Mason, Gary Johnson and Dexter Pittman all mean more to the team than Abrams.

Agreed. When James stops jacking up jump shots and sets his mind to getting to the rim, he's a great player. He dominated that first half against Kansas, and has the ability to take over games. I think they should get by Minn, about an 8-10 pt victory sounds right. As long as Singler and co. dont flop on Pittman Texas should be able to hang in there and maybe pull out the upset.

I usually pick them to make the elite 8 and they end up burning me, so I'm doing it backwards this year, 1st round exit, if we progress I'll be happy as hell, but if they don't at least my bracket is right lol...I don't think we'll see Duke vs Texas, I have both teams losing pretty early(which is nothing new for Duke), I don't even have Duke in the Sweet 16.
