    Not expecting too many surprises huh? Three #1s and a #2 in the Final Four. I haven't had much of a chance to dissect the brackets yet but I do like Kentucky as well.

    I have surprises in the 16 and the 8 but not in the 4. I just don't see a MAJOR (i.e. a #1 or 2) getting bumped off this year...maybe Kansas over Syracuse, but that is the only big upset i see happening...

    Teams led by freshmen generally don't win championships. I think Kentucky is more likely to be the first #1 seed to lose than to be the champion.

    I have Kansas over Kansas St, and Kentucky over Duke in the Final Four. Kentucky wins it all. Though they may be freshmen, they're playing with huge poise. I'm sold on John Wall, I think he beats the hell out of D Rose.

    I'm just giving you a hard time. I love the B.East but I don't see 'Cuse or Nova in Indianapolis. Also, if Kansas loses it will be to OSU. They won't lose though.

    Kansas, Syracuse, West Virginia, Purdue. Kansas over WVU in the championship.

    As much as I love my alma mater Villanova, we've looked god awful for the past 4 weeks. And Duke is overrated.

    if there's a year with most #1 and #2 seeds getting knocked out early, it be this year...

    Kentuky wont make it out of the East

    I have 'Cuse over Duke.

    -Kentucky has no chance. Teams with freshmen as 3 of their top 4 players don't win. Ever. Even Syracuse in 03 was more experienced.

    -I think West Virginia will be the disappointment of the tournament. Their inconsistent shooting could come back to haunt them.

    -Kansas is more prone to upset than people think. Once every three games or so their supporting guards play Houdini and just disappear on the stat line, with unforced turnovers the only trace of their existence. They also come out flat routinely. Some midmajor could easily come out and put them down 10 with good shooting in the first 10 minutes.

    -Still can't get over Duke's draw. Anything less than a Final Four is pathetic.
