The more I watch, the more I think someone can come from the pack and win the NCAA.  Even the teams that can be really good have flaws.

 

Louisville with a good win tonight.  I did not think Duke played poorly tonight. but they are not meshing right now.

I'm thinking it's the year a Gonzaga, Butler or Dayton... Someone like that, wins it all. It's wide open.

I really like Oregon too. They have the clutch gene.

But with this much parity this year, some team like Duke, KY, Kansas, LVille or even FSU could easily get hot and win it all.

The Tourney should be crazy this year.

All of the best teams are capable of losing to about 40 teams on any given night. 

But I don't know how many teams are capable of winning 6 games. Very hard to be that consistent.
This year though, maybe enough of the 'top' teams go out, and it creates a path.

The rankings have a strange look.  Numerous surprising, but deserving teams in it.

Happy they gave Baylor number 1. Happy for Rutgers too, until they play MD. Which if they stay healthy, will be a loss for MD. They play like a team. Fun to watch. Which is crazy.

I'm so old that I remember Steve Pikiell as a player at UCONN. He was always the "He's like a coach on the floor" type guy, knew he'd be a successful coach one day.

Good luck keeping him, Rutgers. He's excellent IMO.

I’m shocked at how much trouble he’s had there.

I thought it was the wrong move at the time, but didn't think it'd be this bad.
