    Hubert Davis vs. Dickie V.

    Wow, Hubert Davis really went out on a limb...

    I didn't watch all the GameDay guys' picks, but Davis had Elite 8 of:

    1 vs 3
    1 vs 3
    1 vs 3
    1 vs 2 (or maybe it was also 1 vs 3)

    With all four No. 1's to Final Four.

    Did not see his semifinal/champion, because I was face-palming. Borrring!

    Vitale's title game prediction is pretty chalky, but at least he had some realistic regional blow-ups along the way. (Amid his orgasmic prediction of a UK-Duke Elite 8 game)

    Re: Hubert Davis vs. Dickie V.

    You missed Bilas.

    1v2 for all regions, then all 1's for the Final Four, then Kentucky v Syracuse for the championship, with Kentucky winning it all.

    The chalkiest of the chalk. Can't believe he got paid to make that "expert analysis".

    Re: Hubert Davis vs. Dickie V.

    There's never been all four 1 seeds in a Final Four, why do these guys keep predicting that it will happen?

    Re: Hubert Davis vs. Dickie V.

    Brackets are pretty top heavy this year. Outside of the #1 and #2 seeds, most of the field is pretty mediocre. I can't blame the experts one bit here.

    You guys are putting the double standard on them. If Bilas picks a bunch of upsets and then they don't happen, you harp on him. If he picks with the high seeds you call him chicken **** for not truly predicting the bracket. C'mon.

    So mediocre that none of them won a conference title. Just saying.

    Yeah, I missed Bilas. I expected a little more variance from him.

    Upsets always happen, and it's nearly impossible to predict them. All four 1 seeds making the Final Four has happened once, and it's ridiculous to predict that they will.

    it's true it happened in 2008 -- once in 27 years of 64-team format.

    And it could happen again for five straight years, for all we know. A little surprised if experts who follow it all year long wouldn't see a 2, 3 or 4 in at least one region that might sneak into Final Four.

    Re: Hubert Davis vs. Dickie V.

    I would bet a lot of money that atleast 1 number 1 seed doesn't make it to the final four.

    FIFY.

    Just so we're consistent, because in the threads earlier today we were being crystal clear that Mizzwho was the tournament champ, not the Big 12 Champ.

    Re: Hubert Davis vs. Dickie V.

    Im surprised Mizz isn't getting any respect nationally. I hate Mizzou but they are a good team this year. I think they can beat a Michigan State, because they are such good shooters. I think that we may see up to 3 Big12 teams in the elite 8, I think as a conference we are underrated.
