See you in the elite 8 :lol:

 

 

 

 

I thought I was the only Miami fan on the board!

Well, I'm glad Illinois got a 7 instead of the dreaded 8/9, but I really doubt we can keep up with Miami. Here's to hoping Griffey, Richardson, and Paul all shoot lights out in the tournament.

If I were a Miami fan, I'd be happy with this draw over what the 1 in the West is, easiest road to the regional final out of any of the 1-2's imo.

I don't think it really mattered much this year. There just isn't really any difference between the quality of the #1 seeds and #2 seeds this year.

NC State could be an epic second round game, definite shootout potential. IU should have the edge though because NC State can't defend at all.

NC State is talented, but defense notwithstanding they have one major flaw. Mark Gottfried as a Head Coach.

Filling out a bracket ($50 entry) and need some insight. Please give me your thoughts on the following games and the odds of an upset. Anything you know about the teams to support your comments would be great. Here are the games for this region I'm looking for further analysis.

 

Montana (13) vs. Syracuse (4) - Note: A 13 has beaten a 4 each of the last 5 years. Is this the one?

Marquette (3) vs. Davidson (14) - Is Davidson good enough?

Illinois (7) vs. Colorado (10) - Find it interesting that Colorado gets a higher seed than Oregon. Don't know much about Colorado.

Both of those upsets are certainly possible, but not likely. I try to stay away from picking 13-4 and 14-3 upsets unless I have a really strong feeling because more often than not, you pick the wrong upsets and then you not only get those games wrong but also the upsets that actually happen.

 

Going by the computer ratings, Colorado is the 10 seed that is most likely to win.

I'd go with the favorites in all the games.

 

That being said, Montana is a good team. They have several kids that can shoot the three, and Syracuse obviously is famous for their zone so if Montana gets hot they could pull the upset. They recently lost their best player though so that significantly hurts them (probably would have been a 12 seed with him). I'd put their odds of an upset around 10-15% so not high.

 

Davidson is also a good team and Marquette has had some pretty poor games this season, but my gut tells me Marquette is just way too athletic. Better odds of an upset here. ~20%

All I know is a good friend of mine got all hot and bothered when she got a glimpse on Will's chest tattoo on game. The jersey covers it up and she's been dying to get a better look. She calls him her future ex-husband. That's the only time I've ever seen the tattoo. The camera caught him bending forward lining up on the FT lane.

Yeah he had a tattoo on his chest last year; I think it got a little bigger this year. There might have been an interview where he said what it was, but I can't remember

This Butler/Bucknell game is painful to watch. I don't know why I would expect anything different, it was pretty obvious what kind of game it'd be from the stats.

It doesn't help that Butler plays Purdue basketball - be overly physical on every possession and force the refs to swallow the whistle.

Except that Butler is much better at it than Purdue.

1/9 from this NBA-caliber center? Not impressed.

 

Yeah, he's been pretty awful outside of the and-1 he just got. Can't even catch the ball.
