I wouldn't want to play

I wouldn't want to play Notre Dame right now, I think they could have a sweet 16 run in them.

Good Post. I think Siena can

Good Post. I think Siena can win a game, maybe two depending on how the bracket breaks. As JoeWolf1 told me UNI is a nice team capable of making a sweet 16 run. I think Baylor is extremely dangerous with elite 8 potential, as well as Maryland. I also would not be shocked if Houston wins there 1st round game, can't count a team out with the country's leading scorer.

I think Baylor could be a final four team depending on where they land.

I also think Texas could scare. I know " Inconsistent" but on ESPN I saw them have a potential 2nd round matchup against Syracuse and I think they could win that game. If Coach Barnes is correct and these guys worry about the next level, I think they might go all out in this tournament.

Georgetown

I feel like Georgetown can make a run at a Final Four...Honestly, I feel like any team from the Big East can make a run in the tourney.

Ohio State is going to be the team that can mess up everyone bracket.

My only concern with Ohio

My only concern with Ohio state is that they run only 6 guys. I don't see them messing my bracket I will probably have them in the final 4. Or do you mean they exit early???

Vandy

I know a 4, 5 seed usually isn't a sleeper darkhorse. But I think they can get to the Elite-8, Final 4...which is something that most people don't have them get to.

it's wide open. To me Kansas

it's wide open. To me Kansas is looking like the only sure thing, everyone else from the other number 1 seeds all the way down to the 10 seeds can beat each other.

Missouri and Oklahoma State

Missouri and Oklahoma State are 2 teams I wouldn't want to play.

Mizzou's "40 Minutes of Hell" Full Court Press is a devil to worry about. And they have some quick perimeter guys and a quality scorer in Kim English. My pick as a 1st rounder in 2011.

OK State's gimmicky offense and James Anderson could give teams problems. I think their PG Keiton Page is one of the very best shooters in the college game and Obi Muenelo is a SUPER underrated talent. Watch out for them making a Sweet 16 run if they get a good matchup.
