    Crazy possiblity

    Ok so this might be a reach...a big one and is really more for fun, but I looked at the bracket and the possibilty of giants/blue bloods we could slay on our way to the title (I said it was a big one)...

    1st round - UConn
    2nd round - Kentucky
    Sweet 16 - Indiana
    Elite 8 - Duke
    Final Four - Michigan State
    Championship - UNC/Syracuse/Kansas

    That is the elite of the elite in college basketball and I guess I thought it was just interesting in the fact that how often does a team have a chance to face all those programs in 1 tournament?

    Indiana and Duke will lose before we see them, so no worries there. That'd suck playing all those teams though

    All of those schools except for Michigan State are in the top 15 NCAA tournament bids of all time. Michigan State is tied for 22nd.


    Pretty amazing to think about. Ridiculous really

    If we won all of those games it would probably be considered one of the if not greatest tournament runs of all time. That would be ridiculous.

    For sure. The most recent one would be George Mason who went through Michigan State, North Carolina, Wichita State, and UCONN before losing to Florida.

    If we somehow make it out of this bracket, it would be one magical, memorable ride.

    Buckle up men.
