    In Your Opinion... (7 questions)

    Got this from EMAW site, but it's pretty good way of seeing what everyone's thoughts are on the tournament... so I'm bringing it over (sorry if someone else already has)...
    What's your thoughts on -

    1) #1 seed most likely to Lose first?
    2) Team seeded 10-13 most likely to make sweet 16?
    3) Team seeded 13-15 most likely to pull off upset?
    4) Team seeded 3 or higher (3-16) most likely to make Final Four?
    5) Team seeded 6 or higher (6-16) most likely to make Final Four?
    6) What 2nd round upset are you calling?
    7) What non Big 12 team would you like to see win in all?

    I'll post mine shortly...

    Re: In Your Opinion... (7 questions)

    1) Michigan St, Syracuse, UNC, UK (in order)
    2) Belmont/Cal/Texas
    3) Belmont or Ohio
    4) Vandy/Marquette
    5) WVU/Florida
    6) I've debated a couple: Wichita St over Indiana, Xavier over Duke, Memphis over Mich St, Texas over Fla St, WVU over Ohio St
    7) I'm rooting for Harrison Barnes honestly. Want to see the Ames kid succeed - seems like since he hasn't been the superstar #1 recruit, everyone has turned on him. So I guess I'll say UNC as a team. I don't want any Big Ten team winning it.

    How are you guys putting Kentucky for #4? Am I reading the question wrong?

    Also #6 is second round and Texas v Cinci play first round

    What's your thoughts on -

    1) #1 seed most likely to Lose first? Michigan State (to Memphis or New Mexico)
    2) Team seeded 10-13 most likely to make sweet 16? NC State
    3) Team seeded 13-15 most likely to pull off upset? New Mexico St. (over Indiana)
    4) Team seeded 3 or higher most likely to make Final Four? Florida St (3)
    5) Team seeded 4-6 most likely to make Final Four? Vanderbilt
    6) What 2nd round upset are you calling? Memphis over Michigan St.
    7) What non Big 12 team would you like to see win in all? West Virginia (is that cheating??)

    #4 probably should be switched, cuz I was reading that 1 is the highest seed, so 3 or higher would be 1-3. I think you're right though. Should be 3-16 seeds for #4, and #5 should be 6-16... thanks for the clarification.
