Truly the best time of the year! Are we still doing the roving T206 Hal Chase Trophy competition?

BTW, both St. Mary's and Creighton got really really screwed.

Creighton is not that good. I was glad to see they didn't make it.

I think Kansas State got screwed...they didn't even get a mention as a bubble burst team??

The Big Ten got too many in. Wisconsin? Michigan? Gimme a break.

Everyone is talking about Saint Mary's but I think San Diego State (& the Mountain West with UNLV also in the mix) are the ones that really got hosed. Only 4 non-BCS at larges is a little silly.

How does a top 25 RPI team with a 30-4 record and wins over other top teams this year get an 11 sead in their bracket? Oh well, at least I get to see Utah State here in Boise.

I don't know how the Big East got three #1 seeds and I'm biased being in a Big East city (Cincy). I would have given a #1 to Memphis over Connecticut...

Doug, I think it was a close call...but maybe next year Memphis will schedule a tough out of conference schedule considering they play nobody the entire year otherwise.

I don't argue that point, but people said that last year and they made the finals and should have won if they didn't blow a 7 point lead (if I recall correctly) in the last few minutes.

Right. But what does that have to do with this year?

I'd say they have a pretty good shot at making the final four this year too, but my guess is North Carolina cuts down the nets in the end.

2-2 against Big East competition. That hurt them some. As a life-long Louisville resident and fan, I'm proud of the Cards getting their first #1 seed since 1983. Given they lost at ND by about 30, I'm surprised they got the overall #1. They were 19-2 against Big East competition though counting the tourney. Should be fun. I'm not sure that playing Ohio State in Dayton was a real benefit for the Cards though.

Doug, I agree with you re NC but Lawson's toe is a big if. Had UConn not had the injury issues I'd say they'd be just as likely to win it all. In fact I'm sure Carolina will win it all, 100% sure! happy.gif

Beware Memphis if they play Missouri in the sweet 16. Of course I am bias being an MU grad. Would be a good game.

Living near Minneapolis was hoping for Missouri in the Midwest regional in Minneapolis but instead the hated Kansas is in Minneapolis. Darn it but I am going to go and root against them (almost as much fun) happy.gif

I thought Connecticut would only be a #2. This is going to be a tough year to pick a winner.

Just give Evansville the title!

If Louisville is the top team in the country and they lost to Western Kentucky by 14 and Evasville beat WKU by 32...

Twisted logic at its finest!

I just wish Louisville could find a conference and stay there. Missouri Valley, Metro, Conference USA, now the Big East...

Wow, my Bearcats didn't even make the NIT this year. I never thought I'd see the day when the football team was going to BCS games and the basketball team can't even make the also ran tourney. sad.gif

I also think Memphis deserved a #1 seed, but I don't think it'll really matter in the end. I think it'll be Memphis and Oklahoma in the final....just throwing that out there.

I am really looking forward to Thursday. I will be flying into Oregon on Wednesday to follow my Fighting Illini! Good luck if you are a die hard fan of a certain team!

Being born and raised in Louisville, I am happy for them. Although I am die hard Kentucky fan so I can't pull for them too much. It would be great for the city if they would win. It just really makes me sad that Kentucky is not playing and Louisville is the overall #1 seed...oh well.

Louisville all the way. I'm still looking for Providence in the bracket. Year in, and year out!
