Yeah, they exceeded my expectations by far. We should have a good squad next year. ;-D

georgia screwed VT over if you ask me.


actually VT screwed themselves over.
and if anyone should be out it should South Alabama.


how isnt it georgia? they had ZERO shot...i guess both teams screwed them. ASU had a legit gripe as well i think, but all in all, i think this was one of the least dramatic seedings...1's were pretty set, not many bubble teams that got snubbed.

First one-seed out is Kansas in my mind, with Memphis to follow soon after.

It wouldn't surprise me if for the first time in NCAA history that all four #1 seeds advance to the Final Four this year. Other than Tennessee, the caliber of play from the other 2s/3s really is nowhere close to that of the #1s. I see at least 3 making it to the F4, but if Memphis makes it as well, it wouldn't surprise me.

Post your picks in the Cafe picks thread. If you don't Harvard wins.

The rules have been stretched so that they spoil the game. It would be a very good thing, especially, to have the sport discontinued... I must say I have no use for a sport that requires [teamwork].

If I receive an icon over here if I win, I'll do it. I try to stay out of the slums of the Basketball Cafe when possible. :-b Plus it takes time to put all my picks in that format.

I've been convinced watching the Jayhawks this year that if they play to their absolute potential, they are better than anybody else in college basketball. Darrell Arthur is practically unstoppable when he chooses to be, while they have great guard play on both ends from Chalmers, Robison, and Collins. I don't see a team like UNC or UCLA beating them if they played like they did agaisnt Texas on Sunday. I'm just not sure they have the desire to win this tournament like those teams, and that may be the difference. The X-factor for them is definitely Brandon Rush...I've always taken that guy for a bit of a choker. At the moment, I'm having trouble putting them over Clemson (who I really like this year as a darkhorse).
