G-town is not as good as last year but they are still probably a top 10 team at best right now. Davidson will lose.

They'll have the home-court advantage, but I don't think Davidson is nearly as good as Gonzaga. At least they don't have near the amount of weapons.

Gonzaga lost to San Diego in their conference tourney. I think Davidson's gonna be able to pull it off.

I don't think all that highly of the Big 10 or Big East (um, I hate them with a passion :) ), so it's hard for me not to blow up that portion of the bracket.

Wisconsin is good, but they play the excruciating Big 10 style where they're always a basket away from either winning or losing. As said before, Georgetown is good, but not as good as last year.... Pittsburgh attempted 44 free throws in the Big East championship.

Those are the toughest to figure out, IMO. They're good enough at the style they play to go to the Final Four, but they'll do it with an average margin of victory of 3 points per game (see Ohio State last year).

My purple tinted glasses appreciate it, but the Cats have not played well for some time. If Walker/Pullen bring their games, KSU is very dangerous. If not, very beatable. We'll see. Should be a fun matchup with USC regardless.

The Tigers have now been ranked in the top 25 of the AP Poll for 57 consecutive weeks. 36 of those weeks, Memphis has been in the top 5. Memphis and UCLA are the only two programs that have been ranked in the poll every week of the last three seasons.

Let the record show that 18 of the past 19 championships have been won by teams that earned either a No. 1 (12 times), 2 (three times) or 3 (three times.) The exception was the 1997 Arizona team that toppled three top seeds.

So I've already cut my list of possible champs to a dozen.

Further cuts are required. To make them I went to the NCAA's Official 2008 Men's Final Four Record Book, which shows team statistics of every champion. I decided to limit my comparisons to the past 19 seasons, the period when all but one winner has been seeded No. 3 or better.

Championship teams share many strengths, most of them involving the ability to shoot well and score. Here are four qualities I selected:

Scoring -- 18 of the past 19 champions averaged at least 77 points per game.

Two-point field-goal shooting -- 16 of the past 19 champs shot 48 percent or better.

Three-point field-goal shooting -- 16 of the past 19 champs made at least 37 percent of their three-point shots.

Free-throw shooting -- 17 of the past 19 champions shot 68 percent or better from the line.

Of the 12 top seeds in the 2008 tournament, two qualify in every category -- North Carolina and Kansas. Tough to question their credentials as No. 1 seeds.

I like UCLA's early matchups, should help getting Love and Mbah a Moute healthy. Also, watch out for USC. They've really come together towards the end of the year, and with Hackett back, they are definitely a complete team. They've got solid scoring options throughout the lineup and their defense is pretty damn good.

But now that I think about it, I think UCLA's luck is going to run out.. I dont think the officals will bail them out in the tourney like they did late in the year....

I picked UCLA to win it each of the last two years, but that had more to do with the homer in me than anything else. However, both of those teams made it to the final four with inferior talent due to their defense. Regardless of what some may think, UCLA's defense steps it up come tournament time and it can frustrate even the best of teams.

USC is in a lot of trouble right now. Yes, it is close, but 2 of their best guys have 4 fouls and they do not have a deep bench at all. All of a sudden, Beasley's 3 fouls arent a big deal anyjmore, and USC is just 1 or 2 fouls away from being totally screwed.

Ok lets take a 9 year look back at KU's tournament History

2007 Elite 8 as a 1 seed
2006 1st Round as a 4 seed
2005 1st Round as a 3 seed
2004 Elite 8 as a 4 seed
2003 Championship as a 2 seed
2002 Final 4 as a 1 seed
2001 Sweet 16 as a 4 seed
2000 2nd Round as a 8 seed
1999 2nd Round as a 6 seed

They choked for two years yes but overall they have had some pretty nice runs I don't see any number one seeds getting choked away. Not to mention we went through a coaching change.
