    I have:

    Michigan State


    Texas Tech


    North Carolina




    And the Zags

    In the Final Four in most of my bracket picks

    Not very Bold Picks, but reasonable

    Nevada might be the Chicago Loyola this season

    There are some who give Saint Marys a shot also

    Preseason, I would have bet the house on Duke

    Today and tomorrow are my 2 favorite days of the year. I’m not going to WF today because I refuse to give up watching the other 12 games. My wife understands. We agreed to go Saturday.

    I did something I’m not sure I have done before...all 1 seeds in the FF4. I have Oregon winning their 1st game. I have Nevada beating Michigan.

    I only have 1 #1 in final four. I wont win any bracket challenge, I just don't want to support the ACC in any way, shape or form. I will admit I had trouble picking Iowa over Cincinnati, but I still did it just out of loyalty. Easy when there isnt any money riding on the game................

    Gophers are little tight to start.

    One of my favorite birthdays was when Drake almost beat Lou Alcindor and UCLA in the Final Four

    They beat North Carolina by 20 in the consolation game next

    <<Preseason I would have bet the house on Duke>>

    Post-conference tourneys, I'd bet my house AND your house.

    My nephew did one of those "Tournament Challenge" brackets on I unashamedly went with Duke.

    Coffey buries a three to put Goldie up 38-33 at half.

    Would love to have a player like Murphy and just one of Minnys slasher wings on Iowa’s team...

    How many of you are blowing off work or school tomorrow to watch the Iowa game or go to the women's game?

    Agreed, this is my favorite 2 days of the year!

    I don't know why but for some reason I went with all 1s and 2s to the elite 8. Duke, Michigan, Virginia, and Kentucky in the FF. Virginia taking Duke down in the title game.

    I have Saint Mary's and Buffalo in the sweet 16. I think Nevada has the best shot at being this years' Loyola but with Jordan Caroline not playing in their conference semifinal game and not knowing his health I went with Michigan.
