    Early Final 4 Predictions??

    I can see Kansas and Syracuse so far, but don't know who else. Syracuse with their "long" guards and that zone, Kansas just because I think Self is a great coach and Collins can take over a game whenever he wants. Maybe Nova with Scotty Reynolds but they've been a little shaky lately?? Thoughts?

    I like Kansas, Syracuse, and Kentucky. Still trying to find that 4th team.

    What do you think will happen first, all 4 number 1 seed go to the final four or a 16th seed upsets a number 1?


    Chiefs!

    Kansas-Please, they have more talent than anyone
    Kentucky-John Wall is without a doubt the best player in the country and they have two other top 10 picks on their team
    Michigan State-Kalin Lucas coming back will get this team a long ways. Tom Izzo knows how to do the postseason
    Georgetown-3 losses to top 5 teams. Their other losses were based on the fact they really didn't care about the game. Once tourney time comes they won't be overlooking anyone. If they stay out of foul trouble they could win the whole thing

    Could Bes
    Syracuse-I worry about them late in close games
    Nova-Scottie needs help
    WVU-Bob Huggins has had some great teams who don't make it far in the tourney
    KSU-If they can turn games into what they want they are dangerous. If they let the game slow down and become about execution and Bball IQ they are in a little trouble

    4 1 seeds. I am convinced I will never see a 16 beat a 1. I pray to god if it happens it happens to Duke.

    I like the Cuse because they're 7-0 on the road in the Big East and they're 7-2 against top 50 RPI teams. Not to mention Boeheim knows how to win in the tourney as well.

    Very good question. Logic may say a 16 upsetting a 1 seed, bc its just one game. A lot more wins has to happen for all 4 #1 seeds to make the final four. However, some of those 16 seeds are just downright terrible.
    That being said, I think both of those things will happen the same year... oh wait.

    I think Duke is gone Elite 8 or earlier, I rarely have them making it past the sweet 16.

    All very good reasons. I could see them being there. I just wonder who will be the guy in a close game. I don't know that WJ wants to be that guy. Of course I am probably wrong and they will win the whole ******* thing.

    Didn't the four 1 seeds make it last year or year before??? I thought I remembered the media making a big deal of that?? Of course, as always, I could be wrong!!!

    They do not have the athletes to win 6 straight games in a tournament. Sooner or later their flawless execution and Bball IQ is defeated by pure athleticism. They have great teams, just not enough athletes.
