First of all, my Ducks got screwed. 12 seed after winning the Pac 12 tourney and being 2nd in the regular season. UCLA and Arizona, who the Ducks have 3 wins against combined are both 6 seeds. UNLV who the Ducks beat in Las Vegas are a 5. And the one that really gets my steamed, Colorado who the Ducks finished ahead of in both the regular season and tournament are a 10. Doesnt make much sense.

But now that I got my bitching out of the way, Heres my final 4:

Michigan State
Ohio State
Miami
Kansas.

With Miami winning the whole thing.

Probably. As much confidence as I have in Ducks football, its about the opposite for Ducks basketball. They should still be higher then a 12 seed though, based off the other teams in their conference.

Probably. I pretty much always have beef with how the seeding works. But yeah, Ducks should be at least an 8, if not a bit higher.

Agree with both of you. UO got a shitty deal from the commitee.

UO got a bad seed, but I see them having a nice road to the sweet 16. UO is 5-0 vs rpi top 25 while Ok st is 2-4. A 12 winning vs a 5 isn't much of an upset since generally every year 2 of the 12 win the first game.

Louisville
Indiana
Oklahoma
Kansas state

I have a feeling that Oklahoma wins it all don't ask me why just got a feeling.

But I agree that Oregon got robbed they should have been a 5 or 6 seed. And Gonzaga loses in the sweet 16

While I think a 12 seed was rather low for Oregon, I didn't see them getting much higher than a 9 seed because they didn't play a very good out of conference slate and the NCAA committee takes that rather seriously.

On topic, my initial thoughts are: Ohio State, Indiana, Louisville, Florida. I haven't gotten a chance to run the numbers yet, so I'm sure that'll change once I see who's looking good.

Initial predictions:
Louisville
Gonzaga
Georgetown
Indiana
Then have Louisville over Indiana 70-66 in the final.
(Haven't looked over to many advanced stats metrics yet, which will probably change a few of my picks. However feeling confident about that final 4.)
If anyone fills out a perfect bracket this year, they should be knighted.

MSU
Gonzaga
Florida

Oregon and UCLA out in their first game but I have Colorado advancing to elite eight as I see Miami as very susceptible to an upset.

The 15 that wins? I got Florida Gulf Coast. IIRC, they beat the Canes earlier this year.

Ducks seeding kind of pissed me off, and thats really hard to do considering I hate the Ducks. I think they win 2 games.

No Chance. Ok State are legitimately good.

This is a big day for FGCU, only in their second year of eligibility and they're in the tournament(they lost in the A-Sun final last year). Cause I live near the campus I've seen some pretty excited people for this. They might shock people and upset Georgetown, but not sure about them advancing past that.

Even as a Ducks fan, I have to agree with the Okie here. 12 seeds that didn't go to the previous year's dance are only 17-58 in these games whereas teams with OK States stats are 47-16.

Being an 8 is almost a kiss of death though. Beating a 1 in the second round is rare. 12 or 13 are much more favorable seedings.

Make that 18-58 and 47-17. Way to go Oregon!

I think the Ducks will beat St. Louis to get into a matchup with Louisville. Today was the tough one, imo.

I definitely wouldn't sleep on St. Louis. They looked as athletic as the Ducks, and they were tested in a very tough A-10 this year. Oregon can do it, but it won't be an easy double digit win.

As long as UO plays d and hits the boards like they did today, they can play with anyone. It's amazing how having Artis back has made us just that more confident out there.

Here's my final four:
Louisville
Indiana
Ohio St
Georgetown
With Louisville beating Indiana in the title game.
I have gonzaga losing to Wisconsin in the sweet 16, and my sleeper pick to make a unexpected run this year is Creighton, I think Doug McDermott will lead them to the elite eight before they lose to louisville

My FF is still alive: Louisville, Kansas, OSU, Indiana. A lot of chalk, but the only one I wasn't confident about is Louisville. I went with them, however, because they're mostly the same team as last year's Final Four entrant.

Louisville, New Mexico, Florida, Indiana

I've had some good picks, like Wichita State getting this far, and Oregon getting past Saint Louis, even though I'm a grad student at SLU. Unfortunately, those were way too little too late. Got really, really screwed by New Mexico, Wisconsin, and VCU. I had New Mexico in the final game (losing to Indiana), so that one especially hurt.

One of my final four teams (Syracuse), is in.
One of my final four teams (Ohio State), just lost.
My other two, (Louisville & Florida) are still alive.

I am glad I missed that. I went to an article about it and they had a video to play and view it. I didn't watch it, there is no way I want to see that kind of injury. The written description was enough to turn my stomach. Poor kid.
