You guys are killing me!! Gonzaga has not made it to the Sweet 16 in their last three appearances. And look at how this team has played over the last few months. Quit giving them free passes for what they did seven years ago.

Gonzaga will not get past SDSU/Indiana. Hell, they may not even get past Xavier.

(Note that I'm not just being a major homer - I do think Utah State has a legitimate shot to take us down in Round 1. I have us at 70% chance to take down Utah, but only a 40% chance against Illinois.)

As for my predictions? I don't know yet - I haven't hide time to fill out a bracket yet. All I can say from watching the selection show is that the Memphis/UCLA/Gonzaga region is absolute cake. Bad one seed, bad two seed, bad three seed. If any is wide open for the taking, this is it.

Well, as he just said, that region is absolute cake. That's the only reason why I have Gonzaga going so far. If they were in a different bracket, I certainly wouldn't have them so deep...

that's the point... their region is terrible.

do i honestly think they'll get to the final 4? no... but their region is bad enough that it's possible... in all reality kansas will probably get there. but seeing as i did my brackets based on entertainment value alone, i went with gonzaga 'cause i'd like to see redick and morrison duel it out. simple as that.

i would not be surprised if gonzaga got bounced early... i simply don't care. the only pool i'm entering is for 10 bucks. this field is so shitty that it's not worth any more than that.

How about Pittsburgh? I'm liking them out of that region.

But man, it's going to be really hard to not to pick a Duke-UConn final. They really are the two best teams out there.

I have Pitt meeting Gonzaga in that bracket, actually, and I could easily see Pitt beat them. Honestly, anything can happen in that region.

2 words: Go bucks.

If we are hitting the three and Dials stays out of foul trouble, we are pretty much unstoppable. But, then again, those two things have not been happening the last 5 games or so.

For all those Gonzaga doubters out there... this guy has some statistical evidence. Scroll down past the dancing LSU dude.

Defend your Bracket

i like pittsburgh so much i picked kent state.

i've got kansas advancing anyways, and i gotta find a 5-12 upset somewhere, and i feel pitt is the lesser of the four 5 seeds (they're probably better than nevada but montana's terrible), so kent state moves on.

I think the question on everyone's mind is... Who did you pick as the play in winner?

i dont think any big 10 team is going to go too far

indiana sucks and if they had hit an open 6 foot shot at the last second they would have been 2-0 against ohio st this year, so i really dont see them as "unstoppable"

i have ohio state bounced in the 2nd round to georgetown. not that my picks this year mean anything... i like an athletic team with a quality big that runs the princeton offense. it ammuses me, so i picked georgetown into the sweet 16 just for shits and giggles. they will be good eventually... john thompson the third will win a title at georgetown somewhere down the line.
