Let's get some picks verified now before everyone tries to claim that they had Siena going to the Final Four. :D

Go ahead and list your picks for the Final Four and National Championship, but also feel free to list any upsets that you like.

Here's mine:

Louisville

Memphis
UCLA

Georgetown over UCLA in the NC game

it's harder then ever this year to not pick the 4 #1's, even though that outcome is improbable....

I have several brackets, but the one I like the most has:

Memphis (great guards)
Tennessee (most clutch shooter: Lofton)
UCLA (great guards)
Kansas (great guards)

i think you need great guards (plural!) to advance...

Man the love for UCLA, they wouldnt even be a 1 seed if it wasnt for some great officating...

I acutally wish I didnt put them in the final... Can they keep that "LUCK" up for 6 more games?

UCLA over UNC to take it. I worry that its too safe, 3 1-seeds and a 2-seed, but I still really think those are the best teams.

You have GT beating KU?

GT matches up well with KU, but we have depth that they dont....

GTown is a hard style to prepare for, and can frustrate teams like KU that like to get out and run.

Also, I think depth is highly overrated in the NCAA tournament - you need go to players that know their role.

If Wisconsin makes it that far I'm golden, I think I'm the only one who picked them to make it to final four.

Leaving for the casino in 30 minutes,$5 ice cold pitchers of Blue Moon and Blvd Wheat and one of the best pizzas I've ever had for $7.77.

Now if a #1 would lose to a #16 and I hit a Royal Flush on Video Poker it'd be a perfect day. :)

UCLA to win it all.

Well I got 3 out of 4 and I'm gonna stick with UCLA only because I picked them to begin with, but IMHO Memphis is the best team. Being a U of H alumni, I saw them play several times this year in person and felt they were good, but the rest of C-USA wasn't. It doesn't matter - they're that good.

The thing that could get them though is FT%...It did in my Coogs, with Olajuwon and Drexler, back in the day. If it got them, it can certainly get Memphis too.

BWillie
03-30-2008, 08:23 PM

PUSSY

I was going to do that, tried to mix it up though by putting Texas in there. Got close. I think next year I'm going to pick absolutely no upsets. You know nobody is doing that. I bet out of all the possibilities that could occur in the tournament that is still the most likely occurence.
