March Madness Baby!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

I don't really follow college B-ball during the regular season, but I love March Madness. The effort that the kids put in (like actually playing defense) and the drama are unmatched. So, the time is approaching. Post your predictions here:

 

Winner

Final 4

Sleepers/Dark Horses

Overrated/Epic Fails

 

And, any other predictions/ideas/observations. I need to get some direction for my brackets!

I think there is a lot of parody this year in collage basketball. I dont see any one team thats great. Tough to say who at this point will be in it. If you want some upset picks teams out of THE VALLEY could make some noise. The MVC Is the 8th rated conference in CBB. Wichita State and Creighton are very good teams. I dont follow alot of other conferences. If Arkansas gets in I think they are a tough out. Indiana Michigan and Miami look good.

I'm a Michigan Wolverine and believe we have a great team. I believe the winner of the Indiana /Michigan state game will make a deep run in the tournament. don't count out Wisconsin or Ohio state.

As a buckeye fan I hope the big 10 does well in the tourney. The only problem I see is that the big ten is so deep, indiana, Michigan, Ohio state, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Illinois, are all solid teams. But what I see is they beat each other up in the conference tournament and are worn out come the ncaa tourney.

I am a huge UK fan.  Have been my entire life.  Lots of bad years till Cal arrived.  This year is tough.  But I expect this team to find something deep down and make the NCAA tournament.  Then I just hope for a magical deep run.

 

Other than UK, I don't care about anything else.  I love to see either Miami, Michigan, or gonzaga matched up in the championship game.

A tough loss this weekend for the Crimson Tide. They are already projected to be on the 'Next 4 Out', and then really needed to win against LSU on the road. It'll be interested to see how we rebound against Auburn this weekend, and then the Gators this weekend on ESPN.

Gonzaga, Memphis & K-State

Currently on is the Alabama - Auburn game. A definite must win if Alabama are to get in the tournament. Auburn are woeful and we've already lost to them once. A second loss would put our NIT hopes in doubt. 

 

I still think Duke will win it this year. Avoiding all serious injuries, they are the best team in basketball.

Auburn is awful 216rpi. Bama is 62rpi looks like a bubble team, I dont see them getting in but I'm no expert.

I'm a B1G guy.  Anyone else believe Cowherd when he says all teams except IU will be out within 2 or 3 games?

Maybe, come Tourney time anyone can be beat by anyone. Like I stated above the Big Ten schedule is tough, like there are no easy wins in the conference. So these teams seem wore out come the tournament. But I can easily see IU, and it pains me to say but UM (yes I hope the buckeyes demolish them in the B1G tourney), and you can never count MSU out come tourney, idk if Izzo puts something in the water but his teams are always ready.

Oh, Jspangler.  You and I are going to have fun come November with you being an Ohio fan and all.  Grew up in MI so naturally I'm a UM fan.  You won't get any smack from me on the hardwoods though, even though UM is doing well I'm still not a big bball fan.  Good luck in the B1G tourney though.

Thats funny, I was born and raised in Ohio, but lived in Ann Arbor for about 6 years and now live in grand rapids. Now idk how much fun you will be having in November, but yes watching OSU whoop on Michigan is always fun for me.

I'm looking forward to the rivalry between Hoke and Meyer once they both get their systems up and running.  I think it will be good for "The Game".  I'll leave it at that since this is the March Madness thread.

For the good of the rivalry I hope they are both competitive. Michigan should be a better team with Denard not QBing, but the only problem I see is, I just don't think Brady Hoke is the guy that will take UM back to national dominance again. I just can't see him winning a National Championship in the next 10 years, and I doubt Michigan keeps around longer than that if he hasn't.
