    Okay, so who's running the pool?

    I can't bring myself to actually pick teams likely to make it such as syracuse, duke, or ohio state as Final Four contenders so I'll just say that Kansas would be my favorite.
    One problem with Kansas though, they're likely to play the first round at OKC where they have lost early twice (to Bucknel & Rhode Island) in the recent past. Let's hope history doesn't repeat itself.

    If I had my druthers then Michigan State & Oklahoma State play for the championship (however unlikely that may be).

    First some background...

    I really like Syracuse this year, and always like their coach.
    It's hard not to like Kansas, but they have been a little weird.
    Kentucky has proven good, but they are young and prone to mistakes.
    I've seen Duke.. I like Duke & the coach normally... but I think they are an optical illusion. I swear I watch them and I cannot figure out how they have the record they do.

    The non-top-rated teams I like... Tom Izzo always has Michigan St ready to play in the tourney.
    Maryland is HOT right now in the ACC.
    It's getting harder to ignore New Mexico as well.

    A lot of this will come down to who gets in and the matchups.

    ALL that said... blind-guessing without knowing the field or the matchups...

    Syracuse
    Kansas
    Kansas St
    Kentucky

    My opinion might change when the brackets get filled.

    In the brackets I have picked officially now...

    Kansas, Kansas St, Duke, and New Mexico for my final 4.

    I picked Kansas beating Duke in the championship game.

    Oh, and just in case I'm right... I picked Vermont over Syracuse tomorrow.

    I like Syracuse & their coach... but something tells me this is a year for a big upset.

    It looks like everybody picked Kansas to win it all. So did I. Hopefully my other picks do better.

    I still have Kansas St and Duke from my original final 4 picks... Kansas and New Mexico bit it this weekend.

    The crazy thing... is Duke starts to look like a better pick for the whole thing now than I ever would have believed.

    At this point I'm inclined to pick either Duke or Kentucky now to take the whole thing... basically if they both get to the final 4, I'd pick the winner of that game to win it all.
