    Final Four Picks

    First Post Banner
    Although I'm sure I will see some Nevada, SDSU, and NMST selections, who does everyone like to be in this years final four?

    I will go with Michigan St., Xavier, Arizona, Purdue

    Arizona over Cincinnati and Villanova over Purdue. Arizona hangs another banner (then has it Calipari'd the next day).

    Arizona is in the same group of 16 as cincinatti and villanova is in the same group as Purdue. You forgot about the bottom half of the bracket

    Unfortunate event but too much talent on that team from the best conference this year. Should easily blow through their side of the bracket.

    Jeez, you're correct, I misread my bracket. Arizona over North Carolina and Villanova over Michigan State. Arizona Cats over Villanova Cats.

    I have Tennessee, Houston, Purdue, Michigan State

    Tennessee will face a tired Virginia after they beat Arizona, and Houston matches up well with UNC and Xavier, but Xavier will lose to Ohio State anyways. Villanova loses to Press Virginia, who doesn’t match well with Purdue at all.

    Michigan State has an absurdly easy road to the final four. Duke plays bad defense and Kansas is Kansas, who ritually chokes in the Sweet Sixteen or Elite 8.

    (This is all a fever dream and my wishes so don’t take it seriously)

    Michigan St. does appear to have a favorable draw, good size all positions. Hearing a lot of chatter on the other Michigan team instead...are they that good and overlooked? Love this time of year and no matter how good you are, if you don't come ready to play you may get bounced.

    Any dark horses say seeded 5 or better that someone thinks can make a legit run?

    Michigan is really good, and they shoot really well. And they're hot like they were when they made the final four last time. But they're in a very bad draw for them, so I have them in the Sweet 16.

    Houston and West Virginia are both very good, and I think underseeded as 6 and 5 respectively.

    I like both Houston and W. Virginia's defenses and style of play. GL!

    Would love this outcome as I have a future on Michigan among others like Xavier, Tenn, Nevada, even Providence, ect that were at good odds prior to the season starting. No value in the Duke, NC, Kansas, Kentucky, Nova futures as they were not as beneficial.

    No need to pick the other 3, Virginia will win it all. Purdue will get knocked out early, no way they make the FF.

    My picks are Villanova, Duke, Virginia, and North Carolina with Villanova beating Virginia in the Battle of the V's for the Championship. In one of my brackets that I submitted in the ESPN Bracket Challenge I have:

    NM St. over Clemson
    Bucknell over Mich. St.
    Murray St. over W. Virginia
    St. Bonny over Florida
    CS Fullerton over Purdue
    S. Dakota St. over Ohio St.
    And Loyola-Chicago over Miami....

    We'll see how that goes lol
