Big Steve Alford guy, huh? UNM is an interesting choice. The problem is their best win is probably CSU.
I doubt the bracket works out but I would go:
Calmer than you are
I actually should've put Miami instead of Florida. It's what I meant to type, but since you quoted me, I can't go back and change it.
I like the MW this year. Keep in mind, their fifth place team came to Breslin and played an extremely good game. Also, if seedings and pairings are done geographically, out west it should be Gonzaga as a 1 seed and New Mexico as a 2 seed. If that's the Elite 8 game in Los Angeles, I like the Lobos.
Murray State and Michigan State are probably the only two MSUs with a chance.

I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
Memphis? Your not serious....Their two best wins are against Tennessee and Harvard. They will be an early exit like last year.
MSU I guess? Why the hell not.
Remember last year how Espn kept saying they thought Memphis was going to take out the first one seed, that They are too athletic for big slow msu. Then pastner got out coached by the late Rick Majerus RIP big fella.
The all B1G Final Four:
We beat UM for the fourth time on the season in the semi-final. The other semi-final is the ultimate flop fest in the history of college basketball. Unfortunately Crean's relative flop design inexperience shows as the master gets the best of him.
Izzo vs. Bo for the championship. 3rd national title.
I haven't even seen them play. I just figure there will be at least one mid major and Memphis has a lot of talent.
Minnesota in the Final Four? I like it.
One team to rule them all...
I want to pick Louisville too, but their resume worries me. I think Missouri is their only ranked win. They have losses to Duke, Cuse, Gtown and ND.
I also think there has to be at least one team outside of the top 10 or maybe even top 20 this year considering the parity. So I'll go with:
Some of my Spartan artwork and Keebdaddy!
Definitely Indiana and MSU.....I think Florida will be tough when they get healthy, plus they have a lot of tournament experience. No one else really jumps off the page here on March 1st. I guess I'll take a ride on the Georgetown bandwagon.
Location: Mumbai, India
Florida will be a very tough out. I know the SEC is garbage this year, but it was last as well and UK still won the title. As of yesterday they were top 3 in both OPP and DPP and have been to the Elite 8 the past 2 tournaments. As much as I hate to say it, Billy Donovan is a better tournament coach than anyone not named Izzo or Krzyzewski.
Dook, Florida, MSU and with the kind of year this has been, Akron.
Georgetown been looking good. I would have them in, but I see at least one underdogg in the FF this year.
The will to succeed is important, but what's more important is the will to prepare.
Haven't read anybody else's yet. I've got:
Risky not to pick IU, but i think there will be a team sometime in the 2nd week that will slow them down and beat them. OSU probably has no chance in the Final Four, but their defense is consistent and they don't lose to teams worse than them, so i like them to get at least to the regional final.
Edit: if Duke's guy coming back from injury really really sparks them, i'd replace OSU with Duke on this list.

Alright, I was teetering on giving you a +1 throughout that last sentence but "jizzattack" sealed it. Well done.
gonna bump some threads to get this eurotrash soccer BS off the 1st page!
i only care about spartans --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqsAJQc-NCY
Georgetown? They bow out early pretty much every year. They are the anti-Izzo. I'll go IU, MSU, Louisville, VCU.
