Maize my friend, I wouldn't even overlook South Dakota St..VCU could definitely beat the Blue.  grin1
If I could start my life all over again, I would be a professional football player, and you damn well better believe I would be a Pittsburgh Steeler.

I'm happy with what the Buckeyes got.  Won't be easy by any stretch, for anyone..but having Gonzaga, New Mexico, and K-State in with us as fellow top 4 seeds isn't that intimidating.

The winner of ND/Iowa St might actually worry me a little more than any of those.  But our first two games are in Dayton, so they'll be virtual home games for us!

Blitz...I am taking Iowa State over the Buckeyes...all 5 starters for the Clones can shoot the 3, and they were the best rebounding team in the Big 12.  Also Lucious has experience playing in the B1G...player to watch for...Will Cliburn..best player no one has heard of.

J, who do you have winning it all?  I've been stuck at the Elite 8 since last night...have you saw much of VCU this season?

I'll tell ya one thing...VCU's coach is one of the sports best motivators ! They weren't even supposed to be in the dance !

I took Louisville because they were the least of the evils. Its a crap shoot this year for the champ.

My elite 8 are:

VCU, GTown, Indiana, Marquette, Duh Nuts, Wisky, Duke, and Louisville.

Take VCU very seriously. More often then not they're on their game and most deficits aren't insurmountable for them. There is a reason they came into the A10 and took second place with only St. Louis ahead of them in everything.

The teams in my opinion that can win it all:

Louisville, Duke, Sparty, Wisky, Duh Nuts, Indiana, GTown, and Florida.

Outside chances with a few breaks:

Memphis, Gonzaga, Miami, Kansas

Elite 8 quality but needs some serious help for anything more:

St. Louis, KSU, UNM, UCLA, Michigan

I was just having this debate today...will Shaka Smart stay with VCU for the long haul?  I think there is a chance.  Dook and UCONN were not considered much before Coach K and Calhoun took over...and I wouldn't be surprised if Smart did the same....but....money talks, and I guarantee the next time an elite program becomes available, he will consider it.

So after Gonzaga..who I have losing to Wichita State in round 2...next #1 out?  I think Kansas could go out in round 2 also...provided they play UNC...Fear the Heels! grin1

Dunno. He turned down a lot of programs after the run last year or whenever it was.

I have both the Mutts and Gayhawks going down in the Sweet 16. I'd have no objections if they went down before hand though.

I personally think the East is a joke of a bracket.

Still torn about many picks. I don't think my Dukies will get by sparty.

I heard someone on ESPN say that if Miami's jerseys actually said Duke,
that they would be the #1 overall seed. I have to agree with that.

Rats Final 4 Guesses

L'Ville  ( And Winner)
Indiana   barf
New Mexico
Kansas/Georgetown  (About split between my brackets)


Went out last night and got really wasted. 
I woke up in the middle of the night next to some chick who was snoring and farting, so I knew I made it home OK.

I seem to be stuck on one winner, the bracket is easy and I just can't work it out any other way. I will either be crowned winner or out very early. (hint: sorry Jrny)

I am, but I have enjoyed and been blessed to root against them since Jackass Knight roamed the sidelines.  See, Indiana is like any other state, in Kentucky you are either UK or Louisville, in Carolina you are either Duke or NC, and in Indiana you are either IU or Purdue.  Unfortunatley, I am on the downswing of this battle currently.


True story though.  About 10 years ago IU bought a machine from us and I went to do the training on it.  The guy in charge was telling me a story that a few years previous to that, he was in a small Mom and Pop restraunt in Bloomfield Indiana on a quiet Saturday with his family.  He heard some voices in the next room talking and laughing that sounded familiar and peeked in.  Seated around a table talking and laughing it up over a piece of pie were Bob Knight, Gene Keady, and Jud Heathcoat.  He grabbed his camera and went back in, he excused himself for the interuption and asked if he could take their photo.  Jud Heathcoat said, "Hell No, I don't want to be seen with these two assholes".  They all laughed then posed, I saw the photo.
