    People are looking at the names Syracuse and Kansas and thinking it's scary, but both teams are limping into the tournament and not completely healthy. Both are good upset candidates.

    LOL. Love t. Serves them right.

    Now that said, if they come out of that unscathed, all my doubts about them look pretty silly.

    Louisville got screwed with a 4 seed. How do you drop them that low? Wow. Wichita St, Michigan, Duke & Louisville top 4 seeds in Mid west with Kentucky an 8 & Tennessee an 11. WOW

    The committee needs to be replaced with analysts. These old eye test trusting geezers screw it up every single year.

    I'm confused how PAC12 got 6 teams in when SEC only got 3. PAC12 was not that much better than the SEC this year.

    Colo/Pitt are not exceedingly dangerous 8/9 seeds like UK or Okie st
    I'd rather have UCLA than any of the other 4s besides maybe SDSt
    I'd rather have Syracuse than any other 3 seed

    If Embiid isn't recovered by the regional, this is an incredibly favorable region for UF.

    I'm still waiting for a valid reason why some of you think we were hosed. I don't want Oky State, Memphis, or a 4th meeting with UK in our second game.

    The more I look at these brackets, the more I'm looking at 3 7s in the Sweet 16. Oregon, NM, and UConn.

    Not a chance do I want Smart and Okie State.

    I think we would handle Memphis though

    Is TN-IOWA the play in game for Wichita State? If so, there is a very good chance the Shockers could be the first 1 seed to lose in the first round. I'd pick TN over WSU all day.

    WSU beat them once. But that was before UT got it together. The way UT is playing now should scare the daylights out of WSU.

    That bad joke is going to be put to bed early.

    The SEC sucks so the Gators got the #1 overall seed?! LOL!

    You gotta love the irony.

    Kansas did beat New Mexico by 17 this season, but Embiid had 18 points, 6 rebound and 3 blocks. I like New Mexico in a upset.
