I know the odds are against this happening again just like the last time I picked all 4 number ones and it happened. I don't always pick all 4 numbers ones but Duke and Syracuse the more likely number ones to fall have the easiest schedule. Duke has a cake walk to the final four. Syracuse gets a lil tested but nothing compare to what Kansas and Kentucky will face and they are the best teams and they both are playing really well right now so it is hard to bet against team

Sheltwon. I have Syracuse

Sheltwon. I have Syracuse and Kansas in my Final Four with West Virginia and Baylor. I am still unsure about West Virginia because they find a way to blow it. Though I have all 4 #1's in the elite 8. I think Duke will lose to Baylor, and I think WVU has more experience and will beat Kentucky. I also, hate Calipari and picking his team to win anything sickens me.

i have been going over my

i have been going over my brackets and using all the goodies espn insider has or analyzing match ups, and i still keep coming up with all 4 number one's in the final 4. I think kentucky will get tested by a few teams and are the most likely to fall off before the final 4.

I got you but who do you

I got you but who do you have beating Duke because they will not get that much of a challenge until sweet 16 and I have them beating Nova who beat Notre Dame who beats Baylor. I could see Baylor getting to the sweet 16 though but I did not pick them this time. I have Kentucky wining the whole thing. Calipari will not miss the opportunity he could have had with Memphis and Rose. He will push this team who have a least 4 great future NBA players on their team. As much as you hate Calipari he can coach and in this weak NCAA tournament they are the most talented team cept for Kansas who have more depth but I think if Calipari get another shot at Kansas his team will win. I would loved for Ohio State and West Virginia to be in Duke and Syracuse bracket.

Sheltwon if Kentucky wins

Sheltwon if Kentucky wins the National Championship I will consider that it never happened because illegal stuff will come out. I consider him an above average coach at best, he just has better talent than everyone else in the conference. I think Kansas wins, Bill Self has a more disciplined team as well as better coaching. Though the more I think about WVU has no one to stop the guard play or Demarcus Cousins, so I just may have Kentucky in my final four and losing to Kansas. I still have Baylor beating Duke in the elite 8. I know if I get 3 final four teams I should be able to win my pools.

I have kansas over everyone.

I have kansas over everyone. They have every tool. A senior pg, athletes who can run and shoot and a big who can control the paint. But that's why they play the games. The first weekend of the tournament is the funnest by far in my mind. I remember the first game that tipped off last year was #15 Cal State Northridge which is this little commuter college about an hour from my house and they took #2 Memphis the distance leading the whole game until the final 5 minutes when Memphis took control. That's what im talkiang about when i think of march madness.

the reason last year that

the reason last year that all number 1's made it was because the number 1 seeds were head and shoulders better than the rest... this year, baylor, west virginia, kansas state, and a few others have final four potential... personally i went with kansas kentucky kansas state and baylor...

i just dont think theres any way duke makes it...
