Basketball yes. But, who's winning NCAA championship?

The Hoyas' bracket is awful, I agree.

Last I heard Onuaku will be able to play, though. And Cuse has some depth up front, with Wesley Johnson, Rick Jackson, and Joseph. They're definitely the best team I've seen this year, much as I hate to say it.

Interesting I might have to rethink the Syracuse move then. How's the final four looking for others? Currently I have: Kansas, KState, Nova, Kentucky. This year there just aren't the dominant teams like years past, should make it fun and interesting.

This helps at least for the time being that the high school season is over. Still can't replace the fact I can't go skate and play puck at the outdoor rink anymore.

Definitely...winning the Big East tourney was no small feat. I could easily see them winning the East Regional, though I kinda like Wisconsin as an upset pick.

Can't really see anyone other than Duke or Nova coming out of the South.

The Midwest is ridiculous. I could see any of the top 6 winning the region. What a raw deal for Kansas, being the #1 team in the nation and in such a loaded group.

East: have Wisconsin upsetting Kentucky, but West Virginia winning it.
South: Duke over Nova
West: Pitt over Kansas State; Cuse over Pitt
Midwest: a mess...Georgetown over Ohio State, but Michigan State winning the thing with upsets over Maryland, Kansas, and Georgetown. The Hoyas have the talent to beat anyone on any given night but they're just too inconsistent to put together a long enough run, IMO.

Final Four: Cuse over Michigan State, Duke over WVA, Cuse over Duke for the title.

Looking back on it now, it's a bit Big East/Big 10-centric, which bothers me a little since those are the two conferences I follow. But then they are the two toughest conferences, so we'll see how it pans out. I also don't really think Duke is all that good, they just have an easier road to the title game than most.

Okay this really bugs me; Could you remove "State of Hockey" as your location while you participate in this thread?

Dude, talk about a poser.....

Well, that was a brutal effort by the Hoyas. What an embarrassment. I had an inkling this might happen, since they were so wildly inconsistent this year. But that doesn't make it any less disgusting. Props to Ohio for showing up and playing a great game.

They're the only team I had going any distance who lost today, so my bracket isn't totally screwed, but it's definitely not looking very healthy right now. Bit of a change from past years; usually I just about nail the 1st round, then go to pieces in the 2nd or 3rd.
