Ncaa Selection Sunday - Who Ya Got?

Sun Mar 14, 2010 8:43 pm

Today is the day that bubbles burst.

Who are your number one seeds? Who do you have winning it all? Who is your cinderella team this year?

#1's - Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse, Duke

NCAA Champion - Kansas Jayhawks

Cinderellas - I would say Siena as a true cinderella, but for me, I would look at Richmond. Strong team, and has had an excellent year so far.

Of course, I want to see K-State go as far as possible. Looking like a #2 seed. Go State!
ALB, DTW, ORD, MDW, MCI, JFK, LGA, LHR, MAD, MSP, IAD, DCA, MCO, ATL, CVG, TUL, MHK, PHL, PIT, DFW, DAL, CLT, IND, AUS,

I think Kansas is the strongest team in the field, so I have them as the National Champions.

My #1's- Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse, Duke

I have Kentucky losing in the sweet sixteen. I have Syracuse as well as Duke losing in the Final Four.

I will offer updates when i'm filling out my brackets for my friend's pool.

I also have a good feeling on Ohio State as well.

I haven't seen K-State play as much.

Anyone think Wofford can upset Wisconsin?
Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

Rock Chalk Jayhawk.

Upsets on my book: Cornell will make the Sweet 16 (then lost to Kentucky), Baylor will beat Duke and make it into the Final Four (yeah, I said it), Siena will make it to the Sweet 16 (then lose to Duke)

My initial gut reaction (non researched) Final Four: Kansas, Kentucky, Baylor, Kansas State...yeah, 3 Big 12 teams...uh, I'll have to evaluate that one.

As much as I hate KU, I would love to play them again in the Final Four...

I actually have the same Final Four as you.

Kansas has the toughest bracket, but who knows? They could be very dominant with that.

As a K-State fan, we have a favorable bracket, and we play well in the zone. Syracuse will have a tough time with us, and vice versa. Could be a great matchup.

Kentucky vs. WVU in the regional final could be interesting. Da'Sean Butler is a clutch player. So is John Wall...

Baylor is a team to watch. If 3 teams in the Big XII get in the Elite Eight, that would be impressive.
ALB, DTW, ORD, MDW, MCI, JFK, LGA, LHR, MAD, MSP, IAD, DCA, MCO, ATL, CVG, TUL, MHK, PHL, PIT, DFW, DAL, CLT, IND, AUS,

Oh, I'd so very much KU to get the opportunity to beat K-State for the 4th time this year. I think Kansas will make a deep run, but I'm not sure that they'll win the whole thing. There is no real clear cut #1 team in the country, so this could be a wide open tourney this year.

All right, non-gut reaction, actually researched Final Four done:

Kansas vs. Syracuse
West Virginia vs. Baylor


Championship Game:
Kansas over West Virginia

So is John Wall...

The guy is a freak of nature. He is fun to watch play, and he would probably be in the Top 10 NBA point guards if he were there today.

Also, how did Purdue still get a 4 seed with Hummel gone? I think that Siena can take it to them. If there was ever non-upset upset in a 4 vs. 13 matchup, this is it.

I have Siena winning not only that game, but the next one too. They are good.

Yeah, I have them winning the first game. A&M I think is a tough matchup for Siena, so I have A&M advancing...

Kansas v. Kansas State
Baylor v. New Mexico

Kansas over Baylor.

Why? Because I'm an idiot. Well, Kansas should win it all, but for the other picks. Cinderella team: UVM!!! Go Catamounts! I have them advancing to some absurd level in the tournament. But I have promises from all of my friends that if UVM should reach that far, they will provide me with beer for what works out to be nearly three straight months. Worth the risk.

I know Pat doesn't follow hoops as much as I do, but he is spot on; Baylor is a legit Final Four team.

That masters degree I earned from U of Texas at Austin doesn't mean crap; they go down in flames to Wake in 1st rd.

Wait, I'm right about something basketball related? I follow basketball like buxom blondes follow poor guys.

They might beat Wake. Don't think they'll go any further than that, but . . . oh, wait, no. I have them losing to Wake too. Damnation.
