Those odds are not very good. You will do much better betting each of those teams on the money line in every game they play and rolling it over.

That's a very interesting strategy that I wasn't aware of. Thank you.

Looks like this thread isn't the only place that was heavy on Michigan State

At least Cal had an excuse - their best player got a season-ending injury in practice.

My Fearless Final Four:
Kansas
Duke
Xavier
Michigan State

Champion: Michigan State

Oregon as a #1 seed seems odd to me. The Pac-12 hasn't been a very strong conference this year, but neither have the others I suppose. I wonder how far Yale is going to get?



How's that Michigan St. pick feeling right now?
Sorry.....couldn't resist.

No, they'll not.

You are obviously from Montgomery County :)

Darke county here (close to Montgomery Co. ). My flyers cannot make a point blank basket or a free throw. Writings on the wall 3 weeks ago. Maybe next year, check that maybe 3 years. I hope Archie is still here.

My gut says Archie will end up at Louisville.

1st off I never do a bracket
why
because I root for upsets every game
Upsets are almost impossible to predict

Only team I am not rooting for an upset is my MD terps
How about them Terps against Hawaii yesterday
Tough game, Hawaii got game, lots of game.

Northern Iowa, what a meltdown. I still cant believe what I saw

That Panthers meltdown is probably the worst ever in the NCAA tournament. How do you lose when you are up by 12 points with 33 seconds in the game?

Hehe.. Feels like we made history! But not in a good way. At least now I know the question to the "Sports Jeopardy" answer, "Winner of the biggest upset in NCAA Men's BB tournament history, the Blue Raiders campus is in scenic Murfreesboro"
