    NCAA Tournament- Pick Your Darkhorse

    Pick your under the radar team who you think will do the most damage in the tourney.

    My pick is Florida. These guys look very good. I expect them to be an Elite 8 team, depending on their seeding of course.

    Re: NCAA Tournament- Pick Your Darkhorse

    I just haven't paid enough attention to college basketball this season (outside of Iowa State) to pick a darkhorse.

    Sweet 16 sleeper is West Virginia.

    Final Four sleeper is Vanderbilt.

    Florida "under the radar?" OK. They'll be a 4 seed at worst, maybe a 3. For real darkhorses that may advance a bit, I pick Florida State and Illinois.

    Re: NCAA Tournament- Pick Your Darkhorse

    Florida is the top team in the SEC, so not a darkhorse...

    any of the last Big East teams getting in would be a good darkhorse choice, they are all very dangerous. Missouri should advance far because of their style of play, at least all the announcers say so.

    I think Utah State has a chance to win a few games this year, of course only if Wild Bill is in attendance.

    Re: NCAA Tournament- Pick Your Darkhorse

    Louisville has been a fun team to watch this year. Knowles, Siva and Kuric are pretty good.

    If we're talking darkhorse title contenders, which was the vibe I got. If you're thinking darkhorse teams to win a few games, then I think Michigan has enough talent to beat a 5 and a 4 seed to get to the sweet 16 if they get the right matchup. If they run into a bigger, longer more athletic lineup, they might not do so hot.

    UTEP, if they can get there. Not a dark horse to win it all, but I'll take Tim Floyd for the upset in the first round or two.

    Utah State, they are a very sound team. Not a lot of flaws, they can suprise some people.
