  • Pac-10 is still decent, third best conference IMO, but not dominant. I'm glad I didn't pick Illinois like I said I would. I keep forgetting how awful the Big Ten is.

    • Agree on Xavier, Bearsfan. ESPN overdid it on Xavier getting into the tournament. X had a top 30 RPI and lots of quality wins. Better resume than a lot of major teams. I'm not sure they deserved a 9 seed, but they're a very dangerous matchup against BYU and Ohio St. In one of my brackets, I have X in the Elite 8. I've seen them play a lot because they are in conference rivals with GW.

      • I had a real hard time picking between Xavier and BYU.

        • How does RPI per conference work. I heard one of the commitee members try to defend the Arkansas selection by saying they played in the 2nd or 3rd ranked conference. I thought he was joking.

          • Well, you don't play everyone in your conference twice, so all the schedules are different.

            • If Boston College wins ... I think they'll give Georgetown a run for their money. I picked Georgetown to the Final Four, but if Rice can dominate the tempo, they have the potential talent to cause Jeff Green some trouble ...

              • If BC had a full squad and hadn't (correctly) booted players for off court conduct, they would be a much stronger team. I look forward to this game, but I think GTown will roll.

                • Dudley probably will get in foul trouble again and they will get beat.

                    I had no trouble at all picking that game. X is balanced, has a veteran squad, and I know their game and defense gives people trouble. I felt BYU was a little overblown by the polls. X was on a huge run before losing to URI in the A-10 semis. I like X a lot as a potential spoiler.

                    • I have a hard time with Davidson because I like rooting for underdogs but I also like public schools over private and Davidson is one of the most exclusive schools in the nation.


                      Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                        I like Arkansas over Stanford.

                        • I don't have a hard time with any of it because it's supposed to be fun. Looks to me like Maryland will advance. I'm not a huge fan of the UMD program, so that doesn't make me terribly happy...

                          • That Davidson squad is going to be one to watch out of the mid-majors the next few years. Young squad ... if they could just get some size in there.

                            • Davidson is going to be very good next season. Curry looks like a future pro to me.

                              • Two of my upset picks coming up, Oral and Old Dominion.
