    Duke will lose to Texas in the 2nd round. Texas has an amazing ability to play to their opponents level.

    see that was probably the hardest game for me to pick. I just see Griffin and Warren being too much. Well at least I hope they are too much.

    Not having one of the best PGs in the country might have had something to do with that.

    If Lawson is 100%, UNC will be a very tough out, crappy defense and all. If he's still nursing the toe injury, I have no idea what to expect from them. Definitely not a Final 4 though.

    Re: Vitale went out on a limb

    yeah I had trouble too. It took me like 15 min. to figure who would win. I picked syracuse because they had knocked of connecticut in their confrence tourney. But Oklahoma is good too with blake griffin and willie warren.

    Good point. Ever since George Mason made the final four in 2006, I've been bored.

    Those guys, ESPN and Dicky V, aren't going to go out on a limb against a major market team. They know how to make money and where it sits.

    Re: Vitale went out on a limb

    North carolina is weakest of the four number one seeds. Their point guard is in traction.

    Re: Vitale went out on a limb

    I think Doug Gottlieb (sp?) had the same final four with UNC beating Louisville in the champ game. Seems like they are spending a lot of time on their brackets this year

    Maybe I'll be eating some crow when it's all #1 seeds in the final four, but correct me if wrong but I don't think it's ever happened, but even if it has, someones just bound to lose along the way.
