    As much as I hate them i could honestly see Colorado being a sleeper ONLY IF Higgins and Burk are on like they have been. Without them Colorado is garbageeeee.

    That's an interesting statistic.

    As far as sleepers, I'm not good a picking that, but I would be surprised if a Butler-type team makes to to the Final 4. Teams making a splash might be Utah St, Kansas St,

    I do think the following teams are vulnerable to an early exit:

    Texas, BYU, Syracuse, Pitt, San Diego St., Louisville,

    If Chris Wright comes back, Georgetown. They will likely be a 5 or 6 seed.

    If he doesn't, St. Johns.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I forgot about that Oakland team! They had some nice wins early and I believe they're led by a group of seniors. Good call.

    Re: Who's gonna be your sleeper pick?

    No one from the Big East, I can see that entire conference being out of the tournament before the sweet 16. Of course with 11 teams getting in, odds are one or two will make it that far. I do like Notre Dame, but the fact they rely so heavily on 3's scares me.

    Re: Who's gonna be your sleeper pick?

    K State and colorado are two teams that could either lose to a lower seed in the first round or make it to the elite 8. Those teams will go as far as Pullen and Burks can take them.

    Re: Who's gonna be your sleeper pick?

    I don't think that you can pick a sleeper until the bracket comes out. It is just as much about the match-ups as the teams. Yes, only a couple people in the country had UNI beating Kansas but a lot of runs had to do with the types and styles of the teams.

    Re: Who's gonna be your sleeper pick?

    Probably not much of a sleeper, but I think A&M will have a good tourney this year (great team Defense & rebounding). They made Mizzou look terrible yesterday. We'll see how they do against Texas tonight.

    Gottlieb is high on Belmont too, but I don't know much about them.

    Re: Who's gonna be your sleeper pick?

    Keep an eye on Villanova. Really struggled down the stretch, but I wouldn't be surprised it they take down a 1-seed if they're on the 8/9 line.
