Louisville can cause kansas

Louisville can cause kansas to turnover more than average (kansas isn't exactly a fantastic ballhandling team, although its still pretty decent) and though louisville is undersized and pretty much suck at rebounding compared to kansas, its not as though kansas has a ton of post offence. the morris twins are more comfortable playing away from the basket (you could probably argue they're more like NBA small forwards)

I guess you also could argue that kansas' round of 32 possible opponents (UNLV can get hot behind the arc although they haven't done that in a long while.. and Illinois if clicking on all cylinders, well.. mainly if demetri is playing well) are tougher than louisville's so its possible that louisville has a higher chance to be in the sweet 16 as well. Not to say that richmond or vandy doesn't stand a chance, they could get hot behind the arc as well but we're all playing with probabilities in the tourney anyways.

I might take purdue over louisville though if it comes to that matchup in the elite 8 though.

Usually if I get through the first Thursday and Friday with all my Final 4 teams alive, I am happy. Better luck next year, Aran.

ugly just ugly

Your entire right side of the bracket is done!!! No teams in the elite 8.

At least you still got Ohio St alive, no Syracuse and no UW either. Geez.

Hopefully Duke and SDSU can save you from complete shame.
