I picked Kansas and I think they are the best team.

Can't see them losing either of the next two; of course, Butler is tough, and will not get blown out, IMO. Kansas could kill Florida, IMO.


Kentucky beating OSU was not a huge surprise. Terrible seeding by the selection committee did OSU in. Kentucky and Kanas got jobbed last year, and OSU got messed over this year. Kentucky got jobbed, too (by being a 4) - it goes both ways.

Kentucky should've been a 3, and all else being equal, played against UNC tonight. (Although, they probably would've been in a different bracket, because they play UNC during the season, and the committee prefers to not have teams play re-matches, before the elite 8, if possible).


Kentucky-OSU felt like a Regional Final. The last 2 tourney games for KY that were that exciting were '92 Duke and '98 Duke, both regional Finals. (Maybe UMass in '96, which was a FF game).

My original FF was Kansas (over Pitt) over Uconn (over OSU).

No better way to have your bracket busted than by having your alma mater win a game like this one tonight.

Go Big Blue!!!

Seeing what Arizona did to Duke and how they did it I have to go with them right now. I didn't make a bracket but love this tournament. Arizona has a superstar and the rest of the team is playing with great confidence.

^ No doubt. Ratings bonanza. Florida got two ticky tack calls in their favor though on the perimeter, ridiculous, at least they missed one of those four freebies for some partial justice. C'MON BUTLER!!!

Dumb fouls both ways is true, but the ones called on Butler out on the perimeter just barely touching the guys were right on ticky tack status.

Ughhh... are you a Florida fan or something or do you just strictly hate Butler in everything and if so, why? They're not like a big name school or anything.

I'm not a Florida fan, I'm just a little bitter because Butler took out two of my teams earlier in the tournament. They're by far the luckiest team in the tournament.

^ Oh, I see, but also, I wouldn't be so quick and sure to call them 'the luckiest team'. I mean seriously, if you've followed college basketball the past few years, even though they're not a big name school or anything, they've actually somewhat become known for this now. This is not like the first time they do [expletive] like this. They are known as the greatest so & so upset school out there so I have to disagree with you on that one. Think you're speaking more on emotion right now and fumes.

Anyway, hope Zona takes down Uconn. Go party school!!! :rock:

Did you watch the first two Butler games of the tournament? If you did, you would know exactly what I'm talking about. Butler has been good the last couple years there is no denying it, especially last season when they made it to the finals with Gordon Hayward. As a matter of fact I actually pulled for them last season.
