Carolina shouldn't have too much trouble getting to Detroit with this weak bracket. If they don't have Lawson then Gonzaga might be tough, but with Lawson they should blow away every team in this region, including OU.

Syracuse matches up extremely well with the teams they could face in this region--even Oklahoma. As long as the Orange aren't out of gas, I see them marching along until they hit UNC in the elite 8. I don't see how they could beat Carolina.

I pray Gonzaga makes it to the Sweet 16 for that potential UNC matchup. Don't get it twisted, UNC is stacked and they shouldn't have too much trouble holding down the South division. But I think Gonzaga will give them a run for their money in that game, Gonzaga's starting 5 I think matches up pretty well with UNC's.

all the experts seem to think unc has an easy road but i disagree. obviously the 1st 2 rds should be fine; although, lsu or butler will not be a push over. then gonzaga potentially could be tough if they decide to show up. and obviously cuse, ok, or maybe clemson would be a tough elite 8 game. if lawson is ok and doesnt have to play much this weekend i think they will be fine, but i dont think this is a very easy road like most. i do look for unc over cuse.

I think the bottome of this bracket is wide open. Clemson is a dangerous 7 and Arizona State is a very dangerous 6 ( i think the yshould have been at least a five). im not sold that syracuse will have a hangover from the big east tournament. I hope its an ASU-syracuse matchup 2nd round. that would be a great game.

If Oklahoma can get past Syracuse, then they'll take this region. Lawson's health is still somewhat up in the air. The Sooners match up well with the Heels and I think that will be the Elite 8 Match-up.

And even if they do I can't see them beating Gonzaga in Portland.

03-17-2009, 09:47 AM
This bracket is very tricky to figure out...

1) Is UNC going to be at full strength? If not....Butler, LSU, Gonzaga or whoever has the ability to play with them. Look at V-Tech and FSU....don't tell those teams can't hang with them.

2) The bottom of the region could be interesting. Syracuse and Oklahoma appear to be the strength....but can Cuse keep the momentum going in the Dance? Also, can Blake Griffin and the Sooners regain their swagger?

3) The Clemson/Michigan game is intriguing, because I believe either team will give Oklahoma a very good game in the second round.

I am probably going to go UNC/Syracuse....but IMO, you can argue that this region is possibly the best. When LSU, Butler, Clemson, Gonzaga, Arizona State and Michigan are the afterthoughts....that is a pretty deep region.

Arizona State is a VERY dangerous team. I have the Sun Devils reaching the Elite Eight where they will lose to North Carolina. The biggest upset I have in this bracket is Michigan beating Oklahoma to reach the Sweet 16.

That's my exact scenario as well.

acousticmike80
03-17-2009, 12:23 PM
I respectfully disagree on Arizona State....but we shall see.

I do not like their offensive inconsistency. Averaged 69 points for the year and can be a bit spotty at times. When Harden and Pendergraph are hot....they are a top 15 team...if not, they are very marginal.

Facing the Temple and Syracuse zones will be a huge challenge for them. I do not see them getting through both teams.

But....that is why they play the games....

cardinals1226
03-17-2009, 12:30 PM
I wish i could agree with ya buddy. But Butler got freaking screwed over.

A little yes, but I think Butler has a good enough team that shoots lights out beyond the arc and plays great defense which might give North Carolina trouble. Both teams are very evenly matched, if you ask me. Both play defense, can shoot, and are physical on the low post. My only worry is Butler struggling. For some reason, big name teams in the tourney give Butler a headache.

Illinois CAN win without Frazier, but will they? WKU was the surprise team last year, but honestly doubt that they do it two years in a row. I just can't decide this. It's a tossup for me. I guess for now I'm staying with Illinois, but switching to Gonzaga beating them in the 2nd round. Also, I'm thinking Syracuse over Oklahoma in the Sweet 16.

I'm not sold on Syracuse at all. I watched them all year, not just the past 2 weeks, and saw a team that constantly gets into shootouts. They matched up well with UConn because they shoot the 3 well and UConn doesn't. If Cuse finds itself up against a team that can score well theyll be in trouble. Put it this way theyre more likely to win a game in the 90s then they are in the 60s. Arizona State matches up with them very well. 2nd round loss for SU. UNC takes the region

What a frustrating team to watch Buter is...

Clearly, this is your first Butler game. They played a ****ty first half, yes, but they played a very good second half. They're defense kept them in the game, but the amount of turnovers they had in the first half with the amount of cheap fouls Howard, Nored, and Veasley had, and LSU shooting 49% from the field really made it tough for Butler to come back.

Doesn't matter that much. Butler wasn't even expected to be in the tournament, none-the-less win the Horizon. They will be back next year dominating the Horizon. Everyone is returning with 2 very good redshirts and 6'10 recruit. They'll make they're noise next year and in 2011.


^Or if they could hit an open 3. They missed a ton of them.

They are a team that shoots a lot behind the arc. They shot 40% this season from behind the arc. Today, they shot 35%, which really isn't too bad for how bad the first half was.

Very true, but i think Gonzaga's starting 5 matches up pretty well with UNC's starting 5. People can say all they want about how weak the WCC conference and the lack of competition compared to UNC and the ACC. But I think GU has a damn good shot at knocking off UNC but i think the bench will be the key. Steven Gray needs to step up.

As much as I'd love to see a Zag win, it took me less than 4 seconds to pencil in UNC over Gonzaga in my bracket. Aside from taking UConn to overtime (in Seattle), we've had zero impressive victories since November. The WCC was more pathetic than usual this year, with many teams resembling High School squads.

The only way I can see us beating UNC is if we can shut down Lawson. Demetri "Meech" Goodson might be quick enough to keep up.

im not sure the zags are deep enough, especially with unc playing at least 9 players and davis stepping up. i think this would be considered a huge upset if they do pull it out and would really make the acc look bad this year after duke getting killed and wake going out early. i think unc has too much fire power and will throw too many people at the zags.

Terrible. One of the worst efforts of the year.

Never seen Rautins and Devendorf cold at the same time before.

If my predictions are accurate, and I'm currently 0-2 for the Final Four, Tyler Hansbrough's career is over today.

That said, I'm 42-16 this year so the Heels are probably safe.

Good win, Blake Griffin is really good but its hard being a one man show. They were terrible from the arc.

UNC is just such a good team when Ty Lawson is healthy. I think the only team that can take them down is UCONN. Other than them, the only team that will beat UNC is UNC.

if they play the way they have in the last 2 games no one will beat them. a hot nova team is going to be a challenge, but hansbrough didnt shoot much today and they still took it to them. too many weapons, too many stars, unc should be national champs in about a week.

When Lawson is healthy they are just so hard to beat. Glad to see Green getting out of his slump and hitting shots. Tyler was barely a factor and they still won by double digits shows how deep this team is.

Green has been out of the slump since the first game of the NCAA tournament. He was dreadful in the ACC tourney. He is definitely our X factor. We are just lucky that we have so many players that if one or two guys arent playing well we have more that seem to always step up. How was Lawson not a factor? He had 19 points and his presence alone is enough. You take him out of the game and it might not have been the same outcome.

I was talking about Hansbrough

wasn't even a game, got off to a comfortable start and steadily keep the lead to double digits. Just incrediable the depth they have, especially with the bigs. I think nova can take them their guards will give them trouble but in the end that size may be the deciding factor but you can never underestimate guard play.

Syracuse would have given a better fight than that I think, if they could have beat Oklahoma...
