2014 NCAA Basketball Tournament - Page 6

post #91 of 108

It would be cool to have 3 teams from the Big 10 in the final four.   Digger Phelps from ESPN predicted it.   I don't believe that has happened before.   There have been two before but not three.   

 

What's exciting, Wisconsin is still young and could return their core.   Michigan if it gets in, only has one senior too.

The local paper today stated that in 1985 the Big East has three teams reach in the final four.   The Big 10 has had two teams reach the final four 7 times.

Two of my final four picks are in. If Mich state wins, I will have 3 of four.
I simply need UCONN to face Michigan in next Mondays final, and I will win my pool ... and will have gotten the final four 50% correct, as well as the final two. :)

UConn was the better team today.   MSU turned the ball over too many times.

If UConn plays defense like that against Florida, what is the projected scores for that game. I would say both teams might end up under 50 points :-D

Must be nice to make it this far in a pool.... Ugh why do I have to stink so badly?... 

 

That said, I'm rooting for you to pull out the win! Good luck haha. 

 

As for me, I think I will be announcing my retirement from the bracket business later this week. :surrender:

Oooooo UCONN nice comeback. Great game here.

I would have never picked UConn to win.

A friend of mine who goes to UConn is texting me like crazy to gloat.

Yea, forgot you were on the Wisconsin side.... brutal loss. The old cliche is true though that it was a great game and both teams played hard. 

 

Kentucky is just destined or something. Insane drama IMO. I'm the harshest critic you'll ever find of this tournament, but this year has been so entertaining.

This year has been the best tournament to date.   With the upsets and close games, it is difficult to "not" watch a game.    Much better than the lazy NBA.

When UConn beat Florida, I won both my brackets (and not because I picked them, haha). It's pretty rare that a bracket challenge is decided before the final four round is even over. Oh well :dance:

LOL ... me too.  Half my group had Florida playing or winning tonight.

 

Disagree on the second part though.  Last year, my group was actually over even before the final four started.

I'm such an idiot.  I read somewhere that Obama picked UConn to win the whole thing, but didn't pay any attention to the story or, you know, actually read it.  He picked UConn to win the women's tournament, but he actually picked Michigan State to win the men's.  http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/03/18/president-obamas-bracket-2014-ncaa-mens-basketball-tournament

 

What a numbskull!:doh:

That's a good point. I think what I meant to get at is that in both brackets, only myself and a couple other people had 2/4 final four teams right, with most having only 1 (Florida) or 0... And no one at all had a correct pick for the final 2.
