Louisville and Kentucky are consensus picks so far. I don't mind Louisville but I would HATE to see Kentucky there again.

By the way I am all over your Super Sleepers.....:)

Bing atleast has a chance. The others are ineligible
And thus the joke of his post...

Anyway, this year is WIDE open...I agree, Indiana, Louisville and Kentucky should be very good and I expect NC State, UNC, Ohio State, Mich State, Missouri, UCLA, Florida and maybe Kansas & Duke to all be pretty serious contenders.

I'm thinking that this could be a year when we get a mid-major or 2 making some major noise in March...Murray State, VCU, Butler, Creighton, San Diego State, UNLV, St. Louis.

If Wayne Blackshear bounces back from his injury last year, Louisville will be tough to beat. Blackshear is a monster.

Not sure I'd call Indiana a sleeper, that's who a lot of places are picking to win.

That being said, I'm going to be rooting against that happening because of how Indiana treated Matt Roth.

Yep. Consensus is Indiana/Louisville/Kentucky 1-3 in various orders.

Just thought I would bump this so you guys can see who you picked. No Gonzagas in this group.....wish I would have put a few bucks on Miami...can't even find my sheet to see what the odds were on them. Oddly enough though I can see Miami being taken out early on. Really no run away favorites this year.....they all had their deficiencies.

Not one person thinks Georgetown is at least dangerous elite 8 material? Otto Porter may be ready for a Danny Manningesque tourny. If that happens they can win it all. Since they went to the final four last G-town has started off great each season then gone in the tank. They did not do that this year. They are always going to defend. Louisville plays D also and could be a good pick - problem with both teams is they can go dry shooting the ball.

Kentucky ended up being a bust, but I think they could have made noise in Tournament if Noel didn't tear his ACL. My sleepers are also kinda duds, but like my other picks.

Yeah...I did ok. Kentucky - yikes. NC State & UCLA struggled much more than I thought they would. Kinda liking my call for a mid-major to get somewhere but hating that I didn't list Gonzaga or New Mexico. New Mexico? Man, didn't see that. However, liking my mention of the Billikens back then.

Nobody loving Gonzaga ? a little bit?
Salty & The802...not sure if you guys realized, but all those posts were done back in October. We were all guessing for lsbal as he was trying to figure out who to throw some money down on before the season started.

Ahhhhh - I should have looked my bad. Some seemed dated and some seemed rather current. Nice jobs on the ones that could have been posted today.
