    I'm no where near being "finalized" on this, but a few quick observations:

    1. No #1 seeds will make the final four
    2. A #2 seed will lose in the first round (Gonzo goes from being "Cinderella" to being "The Ugly Duckling")
    3. Western Michigan will be in the Sweet Sixteen
    4. St. Joe's will lose in the second round

    68 gets extra credit in my book for picking the good guys.

    jlb1705: You need to change the 1962 to 1961 in your signature line.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    Final four- Kentucky, Pitt, Duke, U-Conn

    Champ- Duke (I hate Duke)

    Western Mich. over Vandy
    Murray St. over Illinois
    Air Force over N. Carolina

    But then again, what do I know? I usually don't finish well in these pools.

    If everybody picks the same "upset" is it really an upset? :tongue2:
  11. I predict at one or mutiple points during the tourney Roy Williams will get verklempt.

    Thanks Mili. I transferred my siggy over from BN and couldn't copy & paste. I guess I need to pick up the phone and order one of those typing wands by mashing the keypad w/ my palm.:!

    BTW, does anybody know what Rick Neuheisel's picks are? I hear he does a pretty good job at filling these things out!

    They had them first, and have a more tiger feel to them anyway.

    I say the Weasels come up with something original. My suggestion is a whole new color scheme that centers around a pink base and rainbow highlights. Maybe some unicorns on the helmets or something.
