      I was one of the loudest anti-Memphis people so I'm going to say listening to me is bad.

        So did I, I still have 14/16 Sweet Sixteen teams alive, but I had an awful round one.

        Something like 24/32.

        Jeff Teague seems to forget he's playing basketball sometimes. Kansas is the non-one or two to have IMO. Either them or Oklahoma.

        • I'm pretty happy about having Memphis win it all.

          Much less happy about having UCLA in the Final Four. :(


          Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

            I feel for you, I had 'em winning today. No way they make it past Duke AND Pitt if they were lucky enough to win today though. Their road was just too tough for a team with no size.

                Eh, considering I made some incredibly stupid picks, it was.

                I went with UNI and PSU over Purdue and Xavier respectively.

                Missed every 8/9 too, but I'm not really upset about that. Those are always 50/50.

                  Oklahoma is a 2 seed, not a big deal

                    Right... Maybe I was thinking Cuse since they play. I need to be careful when I type.

                        Because the "talk" was and still is legitimate. Memphis is shooting what, 65% from the floor in today's game? You're not going to lose very many if you can shoot like that game in and game out.

                        And also regardless of how "hot" Maryland is they are not a very good basketball team. I thought California was a good matchup for them because I think the Pac-10 is a terrible conference but it's apparent right now that Memphis is in another league on the floor and on paper. Outside of Vasquez Maryland isn't a deep team and they don't have a lot of talent, an example of an overachieving team this year.

                        I have Memphis going to the elite 8 but that was more based on who they had in front of them. I don't like Mizzou and the #2 seed is very favorable for them in terms of matchups.

                        If Memphis keeps shooting like they have so far in this Tournament I think they have a shot at knocking off UCONN but here's the problem, they won't keep shooting like they have from the outside and they will now be facing teams that are actually worth a salt.

                        Memphis is overrated for what they are. I think they are a good team, not a great one. Certainly IMO not deserving of a #2 seed (watch me eat my words if they get to the Final 4 lol) going into this Tournament. 27 straight wins or not, they played a cake schedule and when they were actually tested, they lost to Syracuse and Georgetown and beat two teams I'm not a big fan of, Tennessee and Gonzaga.

                        We'll see what kind of team Memphis is when they have to play some big dogs, although I still think they handle Mizzou (who is also overrated) and advance to the Elite 8.

                        • I'd like to see Washington, Michigan and LSU win these next handful of games but I doubt the last two happen.
