    Sorry, but I really and truly believe KU gets knocked out by New Mexico without Embid. If they make it past the first weekend and he's back, then yes, KU best shot.

    ISU has a way better shot than KU all things considered.

    I also think Embiid is done for the season.

    I really do believe KU gets revenge on Florida


    When you find that one show that connects you to the world, you become someone different. Someone better. When that show is taken from you, what do you become then?

    KU has the easiest road to the Elite Eight, but they will also face the best team there in Florida.

    Some would probably call ISU's road to the Elite Eight (relatively) easy as well, with a 14 seed, a struggling UNC, and an overseeded Villanova standing in the way. Since Michigan State is apparently the hot pick for national champion now, I guess we would actually have the most difficult matchup there to make the Final Four.


    You feel the floor give you a little tingle, man, Iowa State junior point guard Monte Morris said in a private moment after the game, leaning against a wall in the bowels of Hilton Coliseum. You feel it. You feel it. Its real. You feel it on the court. Its a tough feeling to explain. Its a vibration. It gets you going.

    He paused.

    Its magic.

    I think New Mexico will be tough for KU without Embid. Then potentially Syracuse? I see KU losing one of those two games.

    Would love to see New Mexico beat Kansas. Hell I'd love to see Eastern Kentucky do it.

    Baylor has to show up. They've done a good job recently but I don't trust them. KU should have a good shot, especially if they get Embiid back.

    ISU has to get by some good teams for sure.

    My feeling is that if Embiid can go at all, they will have to use him against New Mex.

    If KU gets past NM, I think they make it to the final four. Wiggins is just starting to get it, I think he woke up a bit in the second half against us.
