That's hard to say

Too many sleepers this year and honestly we could not see a number 1 seed in the final four

doubt it.. these teams are losing road games not home games... their are no road games in the tournament.. the cream always rises to the top. while their might be upsets in the first two rounds.. I doubt you see a dark horse in the final four

Great games today! My favorite was Michigan vs. Wisconsin. Can't wait until the IU and Ohio State tomorrow!

So all these "top" teams losing games they shouldn't be losing, when's re you guys going to give Arizona our due and finally realize we are a legit FF team?

Should be 2 or 3 come the new rankings Monday, all depends if Gonzaga keeps their one vote lead on us or not

And so nobody forgets, Arizona SMASHED Miami by 19 and that was with Miami finishing on a 7-0 against our walk-ons

Miami beat the crap out of us today lol although we dont have too much talent or experience this year. It is what it is when you lose 4 guys to the NBA.

Miami however is the real deal. They are experienced, starting avg age is like 23. They are loaded with seniors. They are big and they are long.

Zona, didnt watch that game and havent seen yall at all this year as they dont really show too many arizona games on the east coast, however this is an entirely different team now. They are extremely confident and have everybody playing. I think they were missing Reggie Johnson when they played yall. Granted it wouldnt have made much of a difference looking at the outcome but I dont think it would be the same result this time. The thing hurting Arizona is the fact the pac 12 is weak, so they wont be tested come tourney time.

Miami at this point looks real good, had some bad loses early but they are the only team at the moment really putting it to teams unlike the top 25. Florida was untill the arkansas game. Going to be one very good tourney, could finally be the year where the slipper fits for a team similar to the vcu's and butlers of years past

Yes, they were missing someone, might have been Johnson, but like you said, it probably wouldn't have mattered much as we dominated them.

Also, we are plenty battle tested, see the end of the Florida, SDSU, Colorado, and Washington games, as well as still having to play at Colorado who will want revenge, at UCLA, and the P12 tourney. This team has been tested plenty and has the senior leadership between Lyons, Hill, and Parrom to where it's not an issue, there's 2 Elite 8's and 5 Sweet 16's between just those three.

And I'm not saying you should be watching them more, as I don't watch all that much outside of P12 play myself, but you can't use the east coast excuse for not seeing Arizona games anymore, not with ESPN's new P12 deal that kicked in this year. Probably have been on one of the ESPN channels 10 times this year along with a few FSN games in there as well with the rest being on the new P12 network.

Arizona plays in the Pac12, nobody's really going to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Miami seems to be the team that is playing the best right now.

no real clear cut great team around which is gonna make for a great tourney this year. any of about 20 or so teams could get hot and make a run in March. my team is Duke though and i'm just hoping Ryan Kelly returns soon enough. without him, Duke is a good team, but with him I think Duke is a legit final four team.

Thinking this year might be the first all B1G Final Four. Michigan and Indiana as 1 seeds should be locks, and then MSU/Wisconsin/Minnesota/OSU all have chances as 2-4 seeds to get in.

First of all, hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Okay, now that that's out of the way, there isn't any team in the country this year that could even remotely be considered a "lock" as this is one of the craziest seasons in a while, absolutely no "top dog(s)" this year.

Any of the top 15ish teams will be considered legitimate FF contenders with the "favorites" according to the experts after the bracket is announced will probably end up consisting of about 10 teams (Arizona, Michigan, Indiana, Miami, Duke, MSU, Syracuse, Louisville, Gonzaga, OSU, and maybe Kansas) while teams like Butler and VCU will be the underdog favorites to reach the FF

And on top of that I fully expect only two or three of those "favorites" to make the FF and we'll see one or two random 5-7 seeded teams make it this year, it's just the way this season is shaping up

Louisville and Kansas should not be considered favorites.

Wonder if Indiana stays at #1 if Duke loses, or even if Duke has a close game tonight, or if Gonzaga moves all the way up.

I wouldn't call them favorites right now either, but when they string wins together at the end of the season they'll be popular FF picks, just like those other 8 teams will be, it's a wide open field this year

It would take a miracle for Gonzaga to ever be ranked #1

I just don't see the voters giving them that spot with the schedule they play, they also lost their two toughest games this season and don't play anyone who should be able to beat them in conference

If Duke losses to BC and Arizona beats Cal soundly, we might challenge for that top spot this week

It seems like Russ Smith showed yesterday that he doesn't have the basketball IQ to lead a team into the final four. With his brain, he'd foul on a half courter when they're up by 1 at the buzzer, a la the Pitt/Butler game.
