I don't like any of your guys' sleepers, n/o. I just think Butler is too battle tested. My 5/12 is Arkansas, I also like Winthrop, Davidson, Oral Roberts, VCU, Stanford, Nevada. I won't get them all right, but it's fun to try. UNC is first #1 out, in my book. Vandy and Nevada the only seeds above 4 in the sweet 16. Florida and Ohio State for champsionship, give it to Florida on experience. I'm going with UF, OSU, UCLA, and G-town in Final 4.

Illinois. Why? I have no idea.

And I've got Florida losing to Maryland. Why? I HAVE NO IDEA! grin.gif

I haven't seen a single b-ball game all year. tongue.gif

And I have UCLA winning it all. Don't ask why though! tongue.gif

Winthrop is my upset special...first over Notre Dame then over Oregon.. shocked.gif

Reason, Winthrop has 4 losses on the season to #1 seed North Carolina, #4 seed Maryland, #2 seed Wisconsin (o.t)and #3 seed Texas A&M. All losses were away.

Probably wrong but it seems as one cinderalla team shows up each year and this one is mine.

Would anyone out there consider OD over Butler much of an upset? I think Vegas has OD as a 1.5 point dog. Sounds to me like someone is either overrated or underrated. Just a thought.

see, that's what i know. i guess that's what i get for trying to remember the bracket without looking. i actually think duke will do ok. they are not real strong, but everyone is disrespecting them. they should be playing with a chip on their shoulder. ucla kinda reminds me of how my cylcoles limped in the year they were a #2 and got beat by hampton. if i gotta see that coach with his legs in the air one more time, i think i'll go nuts tongue.gif

I dont think the losses are what you should focus on, these 4 teams are the only good teams they have played all year. I need to see them step up more against a solid team to have faith. The only solid team they have played this year is Old Dominion which is a good win. There Strength of Schedule just didnt allow them to prove themselves. I think that ND will beat winthrop because of one key stat:

ND record vs top 25= 4-1

Winthrop record vs top 25= 0-4

I agree, hence the term "upset special"....their seeding proves the schedule weakness. 2 of the 4 losses were very close, North Carolina and Wisconsin. I actually have them pitted against WI in the sweet 16, only to lose to them again.

VCU over Duke. Or opening game Davidson upset special? I tried to spread out my upsets in all of my different pools. Who knows, one of those brackets could win the big time. I remember last year seeing a guy pick the Final 4 Dead on at yahoo. He was like a god to everyone else, and of course he was just some random guy picking his alma mater. I think he flubbed it from Final 4 in, but still, to get those 4 right was amazing. Somone else won by picking UF and getting the points.

Jimmy_Dub,

They had them in the first half! Then they had two nasty scoreless streaks in the second half. ORU had a good year...knocked off Kansas even.

      Good luck. Guys!

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
