    I hate that guy. I guess he did not watch UNC lose this weekend.

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

    and honestly... I am routing for MN.

    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. :biggrin:

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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 :rolleyes:

    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.

    It has happened once in the last 30 years. Won't happen this year though. Dickie V has picked all the #1 seeds at least 8 times in his career. He is a joke

    I think UNC is the best team by far when healthy. I would rest Lawson until the sweet 16 and than they will role IMO

    You must have great guards to win a national championship... this is why Syracuse will beat Oklahoma... Johnny Flynn is amazing and OU's guards are pretty mediocre comparatively

    I'm also surprised Dickie V didn't take DUKE, the DUKIES, COACH K'S BUNCH, and THE BLUE DEVILS as his four teams in the final four...

    odd that I have Duke getting beat in the national championship, but I just am blown away how biased Dickie V is towards Duke.
