I got Kansas v. Syracuse and then West Virginia v. Baylor, then I've got Kansas v. West Virginia with Kansas winning it all. I'm just not feeling Duke, also I'd change the BYU thing, they can barely hang in the MWC (its strong) but I see no way they'll top Kansas St. or Pitt.

3 conference losses in the regular season and five losses altogether and they can barely hang in the MWC although they finished second in it? And four of their five losses came to New Mexico (twice) and UNLV (twice) with their only other loss coming to Utah State with all 3 teams being teams that are dancing. Yeah, there is absolutely no way they could hang with anyone of the BIG name schools.

Kansas St has trouble with teams with hot shooters. If you have watched a BYU game (which is hard to catch unless you have the Mountain West channel), you'd know shooting is a strong point.

Same goes with Pittsburgh. ND beat em up twice and definitely gave any team in the tournament study film material.

But we will see. This is March Madness after all

I also think it's funny when they do the coaches, analyst brackets on ESPN every year and they always have every #1 vs #2 seed face eachother in the elite 8 no matter what, how about some upsets?


I also have Duke getting bounced out early once again, they always come through for me. I'll finish my brackets later.

I easily have the craziest bracket and accordingly will probably score the lowest. My final 4 is Georgetown, Kansas State, West Virginia, and Nova, with Georgetown beating Nova in the championship. I also have Texas beating Kentucky in the 2nd round. Call me crazy with how horrific Texas has been the 2nd half of the season but I just think Pittman can handle Cousins. James will be too athletic for Patrick Patterson. And if Jordan Hamilton and Avery Bradley are on, they are built defensively when they feel like it to give Kentucky problems. It's funny because if I took Kentucky over Texas, they would be in my final 4. I just have a strange hunch. One game I am confident in being an avid Big East and CAA fan is ODU over Notre Dame. ODU would get crushed 2nd round by a guard heavy team like Baylor but ODU I think would beat Notre Dame. Their team is so strong and big. They have wings and guards who are 6-8". Torrey Jackson will have to play a great game for Notre Dame to win IMO. CAA is much better than anyone realizes.

I promised myself that I wouldn't pick Texas to win a game, but I also did the same thing with Wake. This bracket is impossible to pick.

Upsets- ODU over Notre Dame, Minnesota over Xavier, Siena over Purdue, and Gonzaga over Syracuse.

People just seem to ignore the fact that they have absolutely no depth, and if Onuaku isn't 100% it gets even worse. They're really not playing well lately either. Also the Zags got screwed on the seeding, they should be higher than an 8.

thenewfeature06
03-15-2010, 05:20 PM
I like FSU anyway over Zag, thats if they come to play... And pretty sure I have FSU upsetting the orange. If Onekuwe is out for that game it could be a problem for them trying to handling arguably the biggest team in the ACC. If Jackson or Joseph get in foul trouble, Alabi and co could have a day.

Will someone who knows more about college basketball than me explain the infatuation with Kansas State? They don't have a single win against anyone currently in the top 20, their most impressive win was beating a terribly overrated Texas team in the middle of the season, and they weren't even competitive in their previous two games against Kansas.

Great guard play with Pullen and Clemente. Lots of big bodies to throw at other teams. They play extremely physical and tough and never let up. They're a great offensive rebounding team that gets lots of second chance points. They're a very very good team...And they took KU to OT in Manhattan FWIW.

Filling out the bracket is all luck. It's not a best of 7 series, anyone can win. So watching college basketball and listening to all those "experts" is irrelevant. A 3 year old can do it.

though i dont like the points system where you just have to get the picks right. i prefer that it is the 1 seed is worth one point and then so on down to where the 16th seed is worth 16 points. That way it pays to take the upset.

You get points based on the win.

So I think round 1 wins are worth 1, round 2 worth more, etc.

So if you pick an upset, you get a point where no one else gets a point. It actually is a huge difference despite being just 1 more point.

Believe it or not, the points start to add up once you get to the elite 8 and final 4, especially when you have a team in your final 4 that lost 1st or 2nd round. You start to lose points fast and fall.

It's hard to make up points later in rounds unless you missed a lot of first round games but keep your entire sweet 16, elite 8, final 4, etc.

1 point for each correct first round game
2 points for each correct second round game
4 points for each correct third round game
8 points for each correct fourth round game
16 points for each correct fifth round game
32 points for correct champion

Then how come I have more points than people ahead of me? Is it because a pick they got wrong they had that team going far?
