I see a lot of bracket drafts, sleepers, conference threads, etc. but not an actual thread designated for the tourney overall and games as they happen, so lets go.

Murray State FTW!!!!

I think the Big East got more respect than it deserved this year. No complaints with the Orange, and to a lesser degree Marquette, but GTown as a 3, Louisville as a 4, Cincy as a 6, Notre Dame as a 7, UConn as a 9, and WVU as a 10 all seem slotted 1 seed too high, maybe 2 spots in a couple cases.

Marquette is my "surprise" team to goto the Final 4. They have a phenomenal coach.

FSU is my lowest seeded Final 4 team at this point. Still lots of wasting time at work research to do, though.

I think this is the FF I came up with when I filled out a bracket. I'm not positive and I don't care enough to double check, but I think this is the correct answer.

Committee has a good sense of humor

Kentucky could face:

1st round: Western Kentucky, in-state team

2nd round: Uconn, defending champ, beat UK last year

Sweet 16: Indiana, beat UK earlier this year

Elite 8: Duke, re-match of 1992 game, one of the greatest college games ever

I don't think Detroit will upset Kansas, but will make it a tough game for the Jayhawks.

Two teams that stick out to me are Louisville and Marquette. I don't think either team is as good as the committee apparently does.

Creighton and Memphis are really good/talented teams. CINCY plays gritty and is well coached.

All have pointspreads inside 5 points either way, pools that give bonus points for lower seeds winning it may work out to take those kind of dogs.

Thanks for your input...

I have reconsidered Creighton.

Memphis is very young and inexperienced, St Louis is very deep and plays great D

Cinci's loss to Louisville was disappointing (to me at least), I don't think Louisville is very good. I'm thinking on this one...

Also adding:

West Virginia over Gonzaga

and maybe

Purdue over St Mary's (my B1G 10 bias is showing here...)

Long Beach St. seems to be the trendy pick, but New Mexico is a good team. As was stated with Memphis, many have them making a push deep into the tourny. Just my opinion.

Davidson's going to beat either one in the second round, so I wouldn't sweat that game too much.
