My alma mater, East Tennessee State, has a real shot at knocking off Florida. We have some decent enough inside guys, but our backcourt is deep and high quality. Certainly we're not a favorite, but we should give 'em hell.

Hope you're right, that's one of my picks!

Middle Tenn. St. is currently a 1 point favorite as a 12.

 

I'm not buying it. Which means you should.

Providence blew that game last night.

USC beat SMU earlier this year and they did it without Boatwright.

Haven't even really considered either team from the 11 seed play-in game.

 

Should I consider either K State or USC?

 

Pretty sure I have SMU going to the elite 8 in all brackets so it would be really tough for me to consider USC.

 

Pretty set, just a last minute consideration.

VCu, FGCU and VT...agree with everything else.

I think VCU got lucky through the season, could have easily been left out.

I think FSU can outscore FGCU easily. They aren't those shitty GTown teams.

I think Wisky was under seeded. Should have been swapped with MD IMO. Since its 8v9, people expect a closer game or a VA Tech win. I think Wisky takes care of business.

I think you should take this with a grain of salt.

I think I have a losing record on the year. :)

A little late, but I wouldn't. Even MD beat KState so how good are they really :).

SMU is legit. Probably gives Duke their first real test, but I have Duke beating them.

Incredible job by IU announcing the Tom Crean firing as the first game of the NCAAT tips.

UNCW/UVA game being played at Wilmingtons pace.

If UVA can't keep UNCW under 60 or so, they likely lose.

This is absolutely pathetic offense by Virginia. Damn.

If they don't hit 3s, they struggle to score more than 55.
