I really think I have 2 of the Final 4 nailed down.. Oklahoma and UNC.. I really don't think anybody will beat those 2 teams and I pray for that to be the championship game. It would be neat to see Griffen vs Blair but Pitt under Jamie has never won a big game in March plus they will fall because of crappie foul shooting.

Plus, this will be my first year at the final four and I would love to see that match up. Since I knew I was going to have tickets I have followed a lot this year and if it wasn't for the 2 unc guys getting hurt they would walk away with the title easy. Not so sure anymore with what I have seen from Boomer Sooner.

I agree it should be great but heck...I want to watch the Big East tourny first!! There's always an upset and man are there some great teams in that conference...should be a classic battle and no doubt the winner will be the number 1 seed overall.

I don't see UNC getting though the Sweet 16.

After watching the game Monday, I'm less impressed with Thabeet than ever. The guy is weak. Looked at his stats and noticed that against better competition, he has done nothing. Because of that, I don't see Uconn going far either.

Pitt has a history of losing to lesser teams in the tourney, but something just seems different about them this year. Tentative guess is that they will make the Final Four.

Oh yea, Duke is a joke.

Ohhhh......E.....I might have to ponder that bet myself. I will let you know. I know UNC is more hyped than they really are, but 2nd round I just don't see it. They still are one of the best teams out there and a team that usually has a decent run in the tourny.

Ponder okay... lmk. UNC is overhyped and Uconn will make final 4 and lose. Your going to be very suprised who makes the final and wins...

KU might still be a team that most do not want to face. I am not expecting a deep run, but if they get a 4 seed, they might be a tough out for a top seed. Can't wait for conference tourneys etc.

Default I ll take your bet

Are you kidding me. I will take that UNC bet. We could make it past the 2nd round without 3 of our starters. You have got to be kidding me. They have had a couple of close wins. But other than Boston College playing a great game at UNC and us losing at Wake , where everyone has lost this year. We are less than 10 points from being undefeated. Plus who the hell Oklahoma played. They are playing good and could be the #1 team in the nation. But Carolina has played 4 teams in the top 10 this year. The loss to wake. We killed Norte Dame who was ranked #8 at the time by 15 points, then beat Michigan St who now is top #10 by 35 up at the final four site in Detriot and the we beat Duke by 14 at Duke, and then throw a 24 point win over Clemson. Come on. I am not as sure as I was to start the season, as UCONN, Pittsburgh, Oklahoma are all good teams. Although like Carolina's loss of Ginyard for the year, Dyson will hurt UCONN. So please. I will take your bet, but someone else or I will hold the money,if not no bet. Ha Ha. Carolina wont make the final four. We are 2 bad halves of the last 2 years, from being defending back to back to back national championships. They fell asleep 2 years ago, and let Georgetown back to score like the final 12 points or so of regualation and lost in overtime in the regional final, if they win , they are at the final 4. THen last year, they did the same crap, and forgot to play for 10 minutes in the first half, and got behind a ton on Kansas. And nearly came back. So bring it on. Carolina will probably win it all. And guess what . We will lose Hansbourough, Ellington, Lawson and Green in the offseason. But guess what, we are reloading next year with the best recruiting class in the nation. Yes guess what Ginyard will be back with. Davis, Thompson, Davis and Zeller add our new guys and we will probably make it past next years 2nd round too. Please I hate people who are haters. Anyone that cant admit Carolina on paper has the best team or if not one of the top4 , is crazy. And anyone that cant say that Tyler is one of the best players or that their favorite team wouldnt take him in a heartbeat is full of it. So come on!!

You did not nearly come back on Kansas. That is the only thing I read from that rambling piece of junk. UNC is overrated year in and year out. Watch out for a Sweet Sixteen loss Roy.

Ty-Ty would get killed by Taylor Griffin so don't even worry about being better than Blake.

Lastly, learn how to correctly use paragraphing. It might make someone read that junk you have posted. UNC blows.

UNC's problem is bad coaching.. Roy Boy isn't the best coach in the world. Give Tom Izzo that team and they are unbeaten this year.
