re: Can I Get a March Madness Primer?


Zona has potential and no one is really talking them up...didn't they beat the U AND Florida earlier this year?

But like any other team...they could flop early...it seems like more than ever...smaller schools will make noise.

Florida basically gave the game away, and IIRC Miami was missing 1 or 2 players.

Arizona is one of the luckiest teams this year in terms of record. They could easily have 4 more losses at MINIMUM if things didn't break their way.

I can see Miami going to the final four or I can see them flaming out in the 2nd round. One of those teams

The U just screams "Team Most Likely to Flame Out in the First Weekend". They scare the crap out of me.
i hope they get a one seed, but if they do, i wouldn't be surprised if they were the first number one to get bounced by a sixteen.

re: Can I Get a March Madness Primer?


wng this tourney for the last 30 years or so it usually plays out like this:


everyone thinks the favorites roll= favorites all go down early


everyone thinks it's wide open= favorites dominate


just saying it's a crap shoot in reality

SLU has a real good squad

they play physical, love to play defense, and have excellent guard play. they should of beat michigan st last year, unlucky bounces, or they pull upset.

I think Butler beats them tonight, but come tourney time, SLU stays healthy, they will be a nightmare for anyone.

Mizzou is a train wreck, greeat at home, horrendous on road. Worst part, they have the size and guards to win, but the coaching has left very little to think they could make a run. Haith can recruit(see Miami, it's his kids- larkin), but he's lost when it comes to x's and o's.

not without Yuguete. Young is their only big and they have no consistent form of offense in the paint. They absolutely cannot close ballgames. Take a look at how they've performed in close games the past few years. Head start: 0-4 in games decided by single-digits this year.



I've been trying to watch a ton of UNLV, Cal, and Oregon lately as these are 3 teams I'm on the fence about.

Those are probably the top teams

Suprised this is the first time Louisville has been mentioned. I think they can make another run this year but dont see them winning it all

I should've just said "upset picks." I just picked those based on the match-ups he has
