Okay UG, the conference tournaments have started, which means one thing... THE MADNESS IS UPON US!!

Anyway, post your picks, thoughts, whatever. If there's enough time and/or interest, I might try and figure out if we could possibly do a pool or something.

By the way, I'll go ahead and say it right now... Davidson WILL surprise someone in the 1st round, will probably sneak up on someone in the 2nd, and has a decent shot at doing well through the Sweet 16. They're playing tonight at 9 EST on ESPN2 if you don't believe me.

I would never pick against my own teams, especially if they are playing some candy ass mid-major in a BCS Bowl Game, which relied on a passing attack, and could not run the ball worth a crap.
The difference between a man who runs 4.4 and and a man who runs a 4.5 is 12 inches.

The difference between a man who gives it his all for his team and a man who doesn't is a mile.

hell yeah im dedicated. Well i mean you cant deny the amont of momentum we have.

(in reality i think UNC will take it)

Hansbrough is a beast but id bet money he wont do jack **** in the NBA.

Yeah, Hawaii didn't deserve to be there. Perfect proof of an undefeated mid-major against an SEC powerhouse, and why we need a playoff system.

Meh, 4 game win streak is ok, but the worst to first deal was pretty cool. I jus dont have any faith in teams lower than 3 seed this year.

yeah boise state is the exception. Even though that oklahomoa vs boise state was a great game, maybe the greatest in CFB history, it makes people schedule all these undefeated JV teams in hope of finding another boise state when in reality its not gonna heppen

Exactly


On topic, everyone is picking Davidson to be this year's bracket buster, but in the first round they take on Gonzaga, and most likely Georgetown in the second. I have doubts that they will even get out of the first round, the Zags have always been a team who has a lot of heart, and will not underestimate anybody. If they do get to Georgetown, do they have a big man, to match up with Roy Hibbert?

Sadly, Georgia isn't gonna make it past the first round

Xavier is gonna rape them.

UNC is going all the way, Final Four are:

UNC, Georgetown, Texas, UCLA

Happy to see that this thread finally got some life!

Anyway, my bracket's in.

And my parents recently informed me that I don't have to go to school on Friday so I can watch the game!!! Whether we go to Raleigh or watch it from our arena is undecided as of yet, but I'm unbelievably stoked.

I picked davidson in the first round. My final four is Unc Pitt UCLA and Georgetown and final is Gtown over UCLA. My big upset is Baylor to the Sweet 16 but i'm seriously considering making them to the elite 8 but i just don't see them beating Duke.

Duke out second round to West Virginia? I'd be praying before that game. and Davidson is good, defiently good enough to beat Gonzaga, but probably not Georgetown. And yes, Xavier will basically castrate Georgia. a 17-16 team in the NCAA? Good lord they are incredibly lucky

For Davidson to beat Georgetown, all we've got to do is:

a) Get Roy Hibbert in foul trouble.
b) Make sure Stephen Curry has a good game.

If those two things happen, Davidson has a great chance of beating Georgetown.

Well they have as good of a chance as anybody else, but i think that they only midmajor team that will do well is Drake

Wow. After deciding my brackets, I recognized that there does not look like any competition for the top teams. The first and second seeds have it pretty easy.
