    Re: Name your final four

    I have Florida, Texas, UCLA, and Texas A&M, with UCLA winning it all. The winner of UCLA and Kansas will win it all in my opinion. Texas A&M's experience gives them the edge over the Bucks.

    Of course I'm hoping the Bucks go, but even as an insane OSU fan, I'm not banking on it. Can they? You bet. Will they? It's no guarantee.

    You guys that are picking Wisconsin...based on what? The way they played yesterday against OSU? They desperately need a third scoring option outside of Tucker and Taylor and they just don't have that.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Um...no one is picking Oregon State because they didn't make it.

    Oregon, however, is one of the hotter teams coming into the tourney, and they're playing in a weak bracket. If they can keep the momentum they established in the conference tourney, they could be looking at the Elite Eight.

    That potential matchup with Texas A&M in San Antonio scares me, assuming of course both teams avance that far (which I never assume).

    That said, I'll pick (for now) :
    UCLA in the west -
    Florida in the East
    Buckeyes in the South
    Georgetown in the East - Buckeyes get a rematch with Roy and the boys

    I could easily make a final 4 without 3 of these teams (excluding Florida) and still think I had a good shot. But there are a lot of teams with the capability to win it this year IMO.

    I have the same final four. Texas A & M has a good chance if they get to play games in San Antonio but I don't think they will get that chance and Memphis doesn't play anyone so they are a darkhorse team. UCLA has great guard play and is a real toss up against Kansas. I think Georgetown is a better team than UNC.

    I don't think all four number ones will make it to the Sweet 16 actually. The 8/9 games all have pretty good teams and I think one of those will take down a 1.

    Re: Name your final four

    for some reason, I'm not too fond of the way UCLA is playing right now... I just have a weird feeling they will get knocked out early, but I couldn't find a team to talk myself into upsetting them. This basically translates them into a for sure final four appearance lol

    That's my problem with Wisconsin. I KNOW they are going to lose before the Elite 8, if not much earlier. I just can't figure out where they'll lose, who they'll lose to and who will come out of that sectional to face Florida.

    My gut tells me Ga. Tech could knock them out in the 2nd round, but I don't know if I want to put too much stock in a team that finished 6th in the ACC.

    Florida beats UCLA and Georgetown beats Texas A&M, and goes on to win it all, beating Florida in the Championship game.
