I have Louisville, New Mexico, Michigan, Indiana and Indiana over Louisville for the championship.
Biggest upset is Davidson over Marquette seed wise. Also going with Minnesota over UCLA and Oregon over Oklahoma St although I can't consider them real upsets. Also, like Oklahoma over Georgetown and North Carolina over Kansas in 3rd round. Tempted with Creighton over Duke too.
Just don't think Michigan will go that far. They have really struggled down the stretch.

In my final four I had Louisville, New Mexico, Georgetown, and Miami.. I believe Miami got set up real nice when it comes to bracket wise to go to the elite 8. Anyways I also think VCU will surprise people in the past.. I can see VCU makin it to the sweet 16 and maybe could pull an upset to get to the elite 8
Miami got a free pass I think. I can't see anybody in that bottom half beating them.
VCU is going to maul Akron without their point guard. That said, VCU hasn't been all that impressive lately even in their wins. They could turn it on just as easy and get to a Final Four too. I like Michigan's makeup though.
I've got Louisville beating Miami in the championship game.
Exactly as do I!
I believe VCU is a better team when they play teams that don't necessarily know what they do.. It's hard for a team to adjust to the way they play in a week time... With that said Michigan can get the job done i think but which Michigan team will show up, that's the real question
I got Louisville, Ohio St, Indiana, & Georgetown in Final Four. LOL...with Louisville beating Indiana,
That is the best game possible. So it probably won't happen. Probably end up with St. Louis vs Butler the way this season has gone.
I got Bucknell beating Butler.
That's a good one too. I could see Bucknell vs Davidson. Seems like there is always one mid major vs mid major in that next round.
I just think this isn't the typical Butler teams that made the run a few years ago. & I think this type of team is a bad match up for them. They play the underdog role better imo. I could see Belmont beating Arizona as well. Although I stuck with Arizona. I'm on the fence about that one.

I just looked at Bucknell's stats. Very weird. They have 4 guys averaging double figures then 5 other guys that play that average less than 3 ppg. I don't think I have ever seen something like that. Almost like unless you are wide open you don't shoot it.
Their style of play is very slow down I would assume?
I watched a couple of their games this season and it really isn't. They have a big guy, Muscala, that is tough but so does Butler with Andrew Smith. It should be one of the better matchups in the 2nd round.
I sure hope NM ain't there. I'll be at FF and the environment us so much better when the blue blood programs are there. Ville, Michigan and IU would rock
Michigan State, Ohio State, Kansas, and Miami.
Kansas over Ohio State in the CG.
New Mexico has some of the best basketball fans in the country.
I've actually decided not to do a bracket this year.
So many potential upsets that I just want to sit back and enjoy it for once.
It sucks when you're pulling against a major upset due to losing a Final Four/Elite Eight team. I want the upsets to happen in every time slot.
I'm not doubting that. Just saying that having the colossal programs at the FF adds an additional vibe. So for selfish reasons I'd love for it to be 4 of those type programs
Final 4: Mich St, Ohio St, Kansas, Miami
Mich St over Miami 73-69 in the 'ship....GOOOO STATE GO!
Of note: Oregon to sweet 16, falling to Louisville,
Minnesota to Elite 8, falling to Gayhawks
Wisconsin to Elite 8, falling to Buckeyes
NC St Fighting Gottfrieds to Elite 8, falling to Miami
Louiseville, Ohio St, Georgetown, Miami.
