Michigan had a better body of work, period. Quit crying just because Iowa State won a close game 4 months ago. Quit making me defend Michigan now.

I sure hope so. Going to be very tough. But at least we've got Dan on our side!

My early bracket, what do you guys think?




A lot of back and fourth decisions will most likely happen before the first round of games

I didn't realize how much of a joke the west was until you posted the whole thing. Holy crap.

Dont like them at all as a 2 seed, I think UConn is better and I think Napier has a good game against them.

Im buying into the Oklahoma St. hype that they seem to be getting right now. I think Smart just goes off and has a great tournament but then Wisconsin's defense does enough to shut them down.

I like the way you think. Being a homer, I'd love to see the Badgers in the Final 4 but it's not going to happen. Sweet 16 & we are out. MSU is playing hot, so I can definitely see them making a strong push. Florida is a solid team, and if they play like they did all year it's theirs, but all it takes is 1 off game. I have this strange feeling Cuse takes it all

If it's about being hot now, then let's hand it to Louisville because no one is hotter than them!

How Louisville got a #4 seed is beyond me. I'm not sure that there is a hotter team at the moment and they have a BPI of 4. The AAC got no love. I think Mepmphis, Uconn and Cinci as well as Louisville all got worse seeds than I expected and SMU definitely should have gotten in.

Just the fact that all of them had MSU winning it all makes me believe it wont happen. It dosent seem that whenever there is a clear cut consensus it actually works out the way its predicated.

The West region is very weak compared to other the other regions. Don't think any of the teams in that region would make it to the final four if they were in any other bracket.

I think we're going to see a couple of so called "sleeper teams" go down early. It always happens...the "experts" hand select a few to do far better than their seeding, and then proceed to fail miserably.

In the same breath, I can't wait to see which teams pull off the upsets no one saw coming.

As a Cuse fan, I do buy into the Virginia hype. As much as everyone is talking about Louisville...I see UV getting past Michigan St, and quite possibly a championship game appearance, they have been very hard to beat as of late.

Personally, I'd say all of those are worth a few bucks here and there. I might have to get in on some action with Louisville and Virginia at the 15/1 mark!

Very curious to your thinking here

So Wisconsin has the defense to shut them down but Arizona who has the best defense in the nation doesn't?????

I'm not saying I think we're gonna roll OSU, in fact, that matchup scares me more than any other potential matchup in that region.

But you can't say it's defense that is going to stop them and choose anyone other than Arizona in that region to be the one to do it, their defense is without question better than any other in the nation, especially that region

So as soon as the brackets came out, I had MSU penciled in as the FF pick from the East and I didn't think I'd ever question that one. But the more I watch/read analysis on the brackets and predictions, the less I'm starting to think this is a lock, just because there really isn't anyone picking against them.

It always seems like when there is that trendy pick that EVERYONE is making, it for whatever reason rarely happens.

This isn't Kentucky from a few years ago where it would have taken some sort of monumental upset for them not to reach the FF, they're a great team, but nobody is as good as that Kentucky team.

I almost want to pick against them now, just because everyone is picking them

Much like last year, Arizona's gonna roll everyone because they're tall.
