    lol Winthrop huh, I got them losing in the first round to Notre Dame. Honestly I really don't know who would be this years George Mason, I just picked from the gut lol

    I think Georgia Tech is very underrated.

    I dunno if i should stick to my preseason pick, memphis, or go with my gut.. and choose between ohio st and florida.. then again, upsets happen, they always do. Plus, number 1's dont win it all too often.

    I got Memphis going far but if they meet NC, like in my bracket, I don't think they can beat NC.
    WTF, I just noticed I have ALL #1 seeds meeting in the Final 4 lol

    Winthrop is this years GM I had a chance to watch them against Wisconsin this year and we actually needed overtime to beat them. I have them beating Notre Dame.

    Anyone watchin the NIT games?? Im pissed because the Vermont game wont be televised up here.. only on ESPN U, which ofcourse i dont have.

    Btw, dont underestimate Oral (sex) Roberts! Or as i like to call them, Blowjob Bobs. :p I heard they got something like 2 2000-pt guys on the team...

    Oh yeah, Georgetown > NC. While NC has probably the most balanced team, they're reall young, younger than Florida was last year. They got 2 sophs and 3 freshmen as their starting 5... I dunno, just doesnt sit right with me. oh wait, sorry they have 1 senior starting :p PLUS that fag Hannsbro, or however you spell it, will have the mask on.

    Just heard Brian Butch practiced yesterday for the Badgers. If they can make to the sweet sixteen and Butch decides to play I think that they may have a shot at beating Oregon.

    Oregon REALLY impressed me against usc... well kind of. USC isn't THAT good, they got a few good players but they are definately not a streaky team and they are VERY inconsistant.


    my championship game, Maryland vs Georgetown. I love people who chose picks based off of ranking or their name :p Now, originally i had Memphis but i dunno.... i love them this year, Dorsey is the man and nba quality, but its not like they were challenged very much, if at all, this season or in their tournament. Having no graduating starters looks reallllll good for next year and hopefully year their conf will be more challenging then and prep them for the dance next year. Something tells me in my guy they'll be out in the 2nd/3rd round.

    Yeah Oregon is a great shooting team and right now their on fire. They won arguably the toughest conference tourney in the nation and their WEAKEST win was like 19points

    Come on baby, bring home that title!

    Yeah, they are an incredible shooting team. They're primarily an outside shooting team and i thikn that could potentially earn them their ticket home.

    As for arguable the toughest conf tourny.. ummm survey says?? FUCK NO. You could say the same thing about Memphis, they CRUSHED everyone, but the teams they played weren't very good, just like the teams Ore. played.. their toughest was USC, and i dont consider them anything special at all. Look at who Georgetown had to go through.. Villanova, No.20 ND, and No.13 Pitt. If you're tellin me those guys are easier than Arizona, Cal, and USC... you gotta lay off that crack man. Now i understand that the conf may be a little tough (big east is where its at brotha :p) but the tourny wasnt hard for em, they definatley had the easiest route. They got lucky Wash St and UCLA had to play eachother in the first game, because one was goin home. Then UCLA disappointed the nation when they lost to Washington by 10 (and washington sucks in conference play!!!!).

    I said arguably, you can obviously argue against it. But that comment isn't me pissing in the wind it was said several times by respected analysts. 6 out of 10 of our teams did go to the NIT

    And Oregon is small but our stars are shooting 60% and they are so well conditioned that they break the bigs down by playing transition full court ball. It's all about who can force the issue and remember Oregon had a 17 game streak to open the season
