    Default Official March Madness Thread

    I'm starting this thread as a place where we can talk about results, predictions, and anything March Madness. Share your thoughts.

    I think the "madness" will be a bit subdued this year. I can't recall a tournament that was more of a formality than this one.

    My prediction- UK will win- and easily. There may be some exciting games played by other teams- but the trophy is headed back to the Bluegrass State for the third time in the last four years. No one thought they would go undefeated during the season (including me)- and they did. I just hope that they meet IU somehow.

    Is anyone wanting to do a bracket challenge?

    I agree that there are 4 dominant teams in Kentucky, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Duke...I see the East bracket being wide open, I think they got the worst 1 seed, 2 seed, 3 seed and 4 seed. It sucks that Arizona and Wisconsin have to play in the elite 8, I think Kentucky and Duke have a cakewalk to the Final Four, and Duke to the championship game.

    I could tolerate UK going 40-0 if it meant they beat IU in the Elite Eight. We will bow out much earlier than that though.

    My picks for Final Four are Arizona over Kentucky and Duke over Northern Iowa, and Duke beating Arizona for the title...think I posted that in main athletic topic, but figure I'll post it here.

    I'm actually filling out my brackets with this rule: If IU beat them in the regular season, they are not making the Final Four. Larry Brown, tho.

    Congratulations, Oberto. You have ensured that I will never try your brand of beef jerky by combining two of the most annoying personalities in all of sports in one idiotic commercial. For those who haven't seen it: It's got Dick Vitale and Stephen A Smith in it.

    When UK plays IU it's usually a war!

    My Final Four is Kentucky, Arizona, Northern Iowa, and Iowa State. I have Iowa State beating UK in the championship game. Probably crazy, but I love Iowa State's team.
    Take me out to the black, tell 'em I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.

    Because whatever, I have Virginia winning the national title over Arizona. I have Kentucky getting knocked out by Manhattan, so hopefully Hampton can make that dream come true.

    In a "home" game that was played in Tuscaloosa. The same fate would have awaited IU had they missed the NCAAs and hosted an NIT game--Assembly Hall is under renovation as well.

    I was thinking about that the other day. His results are pretty Bruce Weberish and he hasn't shut down Chicago's borders like only Bill Self could. Again, thank everything sacred and holy in life that Bill Self is no longer in the Big Ten.

    Kentucky kind of ruins the tournament for me. Even if they don't win it all they'll still get all the media coverage. It gets boring after a while. This year is incredibly top heavy. Hopefully the final four isn't all 1 seeds again.
