I've got Illinois upsetting Virgina Tech.
Old Dominion. Its going to happen.
By the way, Illinois shouldnt have made the tournament. But they got a great draw with a solid, but not great Virginia Tech team.
Nah Old Dominion is lucky to even be there. They won't put up much of a fight in their game.
The Linesmakers seem to think differently...
OldDominion OFF +1 Over 123
408 Butler OFF -1 Under 123
The linesmakers should watch ODU play... They got owned in their CAA tournament game to George Mason which was a joke of a game. They never stood a chance and have just looked flat out slow and sucky. Alot of their wins come against teams that are far from good. They sure aren't going into this tourney with any momentum thats for sure.
Unfortunately, I've lost all my passion for college basketball ever since attending Loyola Marymount for many reasons, but that doesn't stop me from thinking that UCLA can win it all. The Bruins are one of the most tenacious teams on the defensive side of the ball. Afflalo was UCLA's only consistent scorer, but now that Josh Shipp is healthy, there's another prime scorer.
It's still Florida's title to lose, but they have a fairly tough bracket. Oregon and Maryland have to be considered dark horses in the Midwest. The same can be said for Carolina with Georgetown, WSU, and Texas. USC has also been a nice surprise.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
