Do we have any college basketball fans here?

Who do you guys see in the Final Four? I got Pitt, Mississippi State, NC State, and i hate to admit it...Kentucky.

I love this time of year. March Madness is like christmas for me, especially since it falls between ice fishing season and spring river flows. Nothing else to do!

Kentucky, Pitt, Stanford and ARIZONA! Zona will take down three number one seeds again, like in 97! If not then it will be Duke!

Arizona...LOL!

They got beat twice by Washington and are lucky they made the field of 64. You put Arizona's credentials under another teams name and you would find a team sitting at home.

UConn, I don't think Okafor can stay healthy, the 2nd round game w/ Dayton will test his endurance. And they might end up meeting Maryland again (like 2002) in the sweet sixteen and we both remember how that one turned out. FEAR THE TURTLE!

Be careful when using "Kentucky" and "Duke" in the same sentence...around here those can be fightin' words. :D

I lost interest in basketball after Pitino left UK...don't really know why. As far as I know Drexel could be the lead contender. ;)

Okafor doesn't need to stay healthy for UCONN to run through that region. I wouldn't be suprised if they rested him until the final four where they may actually meet a worthy adversary. :D

Your kidding right Toonces?

Ben Gordon has been playing well and they are a good team yet without Okefor, BUT they still have to beat someone like Stanford, Maryland or NC State. Not easy. My guess is that Dayton will give them a run the next game whtey will get knocked (the fugg) out.

That team needed an attitude adjustment. I can't believe Lute let them get away with as much crap as he did, especially since they weren't very good.

My maryland team barely stayed alive, but a win is a win.
GO TERPS

Maryland was lucky to beat UTEP, whoever the heck they are. :rolleyes:

I doubt the Terps will get by the Orangemen.

Uconn could beat DePaul playing only their walk-ons.

Hey, I never said they would take the tourney:)

I was looking forward to a Maryland/Uconn rematch,too. That bracket has gotten pretty thin now, Uconn better make it ot the Final Four.

I still don't have enough faith in Uconn to win it all. My pre-tourney pick of Pitt is still in it, but struggling. I don't think they are goin gto get past Oklahoma state, but I guess that is why they play the games.

Oh, watch out next year. As long as Gilchrist doesn't do somehting stupid like go pro, I see Maryland being very competitive. Granted the ACC will be stacked again, with Duke reloading and a young Wake team...GO TERPS!

I put $5.00 on 6 teams at the sportsbook a couple of weeks ago [laughlin] Memphis/N.C.state/Nevada/Syracuse/Oklahoma/Gonzaga Nevada is still alive at 100-1 Syracuse is still there at 40-1 so i`m hoping to get lucky [Go Nevada] I paid out 30 bucks but since Oklahoma didn`t make the tourny i only had 5 teams going in.
