    Default NCAA March Madness thread

    Brackets are now out. Who ya got?

    My Final Four is set at:

    Virginia vs Michigan
    West Virginia vs Kansas

    I just have no idea who I'm gonna pick to win and lose in the Final. Right now I have it UVA over WVU. But any result between those 4 teams seems viable to me. I may change it by Tuesday.

    History is against WVU, since a #5 has never won the title. But I love Press Virginia and will root for Huggins.

    Virginia I heard has maybe the best D ever. Michigan has vets and plays well and balanced. And Kansas is Kansas.

    My upset specials are Loyola-Chi getting to the Sweet 16 and Stephen F Austin, NM State, and Arizona State(/Syracuse) all getting to the 2nd round as 11+ seeds.

    Dude, I wanna pick them so bad. Ayton beasted it last night, I was really impressed. And Trier...they could have the best 1-2 punch in the tournament. But in the South, I'm drinking the UVA kool aid. For now.

    Starting to re-think my picks. But only b/c of superstition mixed w/ history.

    No all-blue jersey Final Four has happened since 1989 it looks like. My Final Four is all-blue (or at least pseudo-all blue...Virginia is arguably more orange-ish).

    But not sure what non-blue color team to pick. Mich St? Cincy? Tennessee?

    What will happen in my dreams:

    Kentucky
    Michigan
    Michigan State
    Villanova

    What will happen in real life:

    Virginia
    North Carolina
    Duke
    Villanova

    On a side note, if UK gets past Arizona, they're going to the final four.

    I just don't see them getting past Arizona.

    Ok, I'm going all in on this 1989 repeating itself history-based superstition idiocy. So here's the '89 to '18 comparisons:

    Put $20 on UK to win at +2300.

    Why not?

    This is about the best Arizona has played all season. Their perimeter defense is active and a problem. One thing stands out, and Bill Walton said as much during the tournament... they don't do a very good job at getting Ayton the ball in the post. That could end up being their undoing against teams that have the personnel to shut it down.

    My bold tourney prediction: Cincinnati wins the whole damn thing

    Virginia
    Gonzaga

    Michigan State

    Arizona could upset Virginia. Don't know what they were thinking giving them the 4 seed.

    Villanova has the easiest run to the Final Four.

    Xavier is overrated af.

    If it wasn't for my extreme personal hatred towards Xavier I would have picked them to win it all. Winning the big east is no joke

    I'm down. I was going to ask the same thing. May put it on the NBA forum to try and gauge more interest.

    Arizona hasn't played a team with a pulse since early December. That's why their SOS is in the 70's. They've only played (and lost) to one top 25 team all season, and that was Purdue, who steamrolled them. They haven't played a team with an RPI higher than 34 since December 5th.

    Kentucky will beat them by 8+
