    I was surprised to see no thread on this....unless I missed it somewhere.

    In my office pool, I've got a FF of Iowa, Bama, Baylor and Illinois, with Illinois beating Iowa in the Final. Yeah, pretty chalky. I thought a few weeks ago that the Illini might be my Tourney dark horse when I saw some highlights of a game they played and was very impressed. At the time, they weren't in the #1 seed discussions. Oh well.

    I was also thinking about picking Ok St with Cade Cunningham to go deep, but of course they had to be in the same bracket as Illinois. Oh well.

    I haven't filled out a bracket this year, but I suspect Baylor is the best team in the field. But we'll knock them out.

    Wow, we might have the same FF, I have those three with Baylor, and Ill also over Gonzaga in Finals, and also feel dirty having FSU.

    Illinois over Bama in my money pool. Gonzaga has the best chance to win it all, but they will be WAY over bet so I would need to be really good in the other games.

    Illinois has the second best chance to win it all according to Ken Pom.

    Yeah, that's one reason I steered clear of Gonzaga. This is kind of Gonzaga country, so 2 thirds of the office pool picked the Zags to win. And, I never seem to do very well in the first couple of rounds.

    And, while the Zags may have as good a chance as anyone to win the Tourney, I have watched them closely this season and they had some really slow starts in a number of their league games. If they do that in the Tourney, they may not recover. Also, they were bothered by team's with size at times.

    I thought BYU should have beaten the Zags in their conference championship game. BYU scored like 55 points in the first half. The Zags came back in the 2nd half, and ended up winning by 10. But, BYU missed a bunch of open shots in the last few minutes, that went half way down and came back out, that could have provided a different outcome. As I recall, it was still around a 1-possession game until about the last minute.

    5 ACC teams, and it's just the 11th seed Syracuse that survives. Meanwhile, SEC with 4 alive, include two as re-seed #2s.

    Only 3 perfect brackets remain. All 3 say Florida in F4:
