    I just joined up myself. I go to Cincinnati so you know who I'm roo..... Anyway, I'll probably have Kansas be the first #1 seed to lose to a 16 because they are garbage.

    On a side note, I'm going to the midwest regional finals so I hoping that Old Dominion, Winthrop, or Davidson goes to the final four like George Mason last year. Also, I think it's the best region overall so I'm glad my friend and I got tickets to go there.

    Miami of Ohio is in the middle of fucking nowhere.

    At one point (a few years ago) Miami had less people who counted as minorities than the number of names that were a version of Mary of people who went there. I know that sentence probably doesn't make sense so I'll try to clarify it. Basically there were maybe 10 minorities and out of all the white preps who went there at least one was named Mary at least one was named Maryanne, at least one was named Maria, etc. etc. until there were more versions of the name Mary (at least I think it was Mary) than there were minorities.

    I somewhat considered going since I'm from Dayton, but then I realized that I'm a cracker who can't stand them rich whitey whites from whitelandia.

    Some epic matchups in my bracket, with some spectacular comebacks. I see UCLA going over Kansas in an emotional revenge match. TAMU-Texas will, IMO, be a marquee game. Of course, I really suck at bracketology, so don't laugh when I'm horribly off.

    Oh, and I predict George Washington will be declared the next George Mason for their win over Vanderbilt, only to lose right after.

    George washington winning one game does not equal george mason making it to the final four, not even close, George Washington was in the tournament last year, they aren't coming from no where to make it far. what your describing doesn't even make George washington the Bradley or Wichita State of this year, it's just a simple upset.

    I would have taken my Terps over any team not Kansas, Georgetown, or Florida. So of course we get the Gators in the sweet 16 and hated UVA gets a bracket full of overrated teams (themselves included).

    you guys gave Wichita state it's first bit of basketball press when we only lost to you guys by 1 that year in a november game.

    ACC is always over-rated, I'm sorry that you have DUKE and UNC in your conference, I really am, but that doesn't mean your good.

    Since 1985 (when the bracket was expanded to 64 teams) the ACC has had 21 Final Four teams thats 6 more than the next best conference (Big Ten).

    And yeah most of those are UNC/Duke but even in the last few years, since 2001 the ACC has had the most final four teams with 6, and only 3 of those 6 were Duke/UNC.

    Don't forget, it wasnt all that long ago that a pre-Roy UNC team was floundering while Duke and Maryland were still making final fours and winning titles. Now UNC is a power again, but Duke certainly isnt the team it used to be, this is actually the worst Duke team I have seen in a long time. So dont bring that "tobacco road is the acc" crap around here. I watch alot of hoops, and the acc is usually one of the best conferences year in and year out. They were down last year, but not this year.


    Now with all that said, I dont think they will fare too well in the tournament this year just because of the draws acc teams got. The ACC team with the easiest road to a deep run is the team least likely to be able to make such a run since UVA relies entirely on Reynolds and Singletary, they have no one else on that team, and if one of them goes cold they are fucked. Maryland drew Florida, VaTech is in a loaded bracket, BC gets Gtown, UNC gets team Durant, and GaTech gets an underrated UNLV team.

    If after the first weekend, the ACC has more teams still in than the Big 12, I'll change my title to whatever you want for a week. Are you man enough to take the same bet?
