That's why I like Michigan State. They could easily beat UCLA and Florida and I'm never betting against a Tom Izzo coached team in March.

St. John's can really make some noise in this region. I think they will either lose in the first round to Gonzaga, or they will make a run to the elite 8/final. They play up to and down to their competition.

As of now I'm going with Florida. Could change tomorrow.

Tom Izzo is the only reason I picked Michigan State over UCLA. I just don't like them this year. As for BYU, I don't think Jimmer can carry the Cougars past the Sweet 16.

Right now I have Pitt vs. Belmont and Florida vs. BYU in the Sweet 16 from this Region.

This whole quadrant sucks. I don't think any of these teams are very good except Pitt, but I just cant put Pitt in the final 4 so I have St Johns for now.

I don't think Kansas St or Wisconsin is very good and could see Utah St or Belmont in the sweet 16. I have MSU going to the sweet 16. I'll admit I haven't seen a Florida game this season, but nothing about them impresses me.

K-State will beat St. John's in this regional final.

USU drew the wrong team. K-State will curb-stomp the Aggies.

Belmont will upset Wisconsin.
Michigan State I have going to the Sweet 16.

I know, makes me want to pick Wisc.

One of my friends brought up that the upsets that are widely picked can have the tendency to fail.

I'm still really scared about this game...at first because everyone was picking us to lose but then because I see that Belmont shoots great 3P%, and that's one of the keys to the upset. Plus Wisconsin defends horribly against threes. Belmont is also great at forcing steals (2nd on the nation), and you force turnovers on Wisconsin and it kills them. That being said...I almost feel like a lot of people are picking Wisconsin to lose based on their last two games. They put up points in the 30's against Penn State (awful game for us), and they get demolished by Ohio State (looking for revenge, had to play out of their freaking minds). It's not like they were playing terribly before that.

You guys need to do a little research on ODU.

And Wisconsin is not going to lay two eggs in a row. Jordan Taylor and Jon Leuer are too good to let that happen. Bo Ryan is a tremendous coach and he'll have his guys ready to prove something. They'll easily beat Belmont. Everyone needs to chill out with Belmont.

Well considering they lost one of their best players for the entire tourney, DJ Kennedy, they are just an average team now imo.

I would have taken St. John's with DJ, but without him, I have to go with Gonzaga.

Pittsburgh vs BYU. Pittsburgh to the Final Four.

Belmont over Wisconsin, Belmont over Kansas State, 'Zaga over St. Johns, Michigan State over UCLA, Michigan State over Florida.

This region will either **** me hard or make me a genius.

I have basically all the same with the exception of Mich State beating Florida... and that was a really hard game to choose because I hate betting against Izzo.

Agreed with all you guys that this is pretty much the hardest one to predict. Jamie Dixon never gets to the final four which makes me want to bet against Pitt. I don't think Jimmer can carry BYU all the way to the final four, and I think Wisconsin falls to Belmont (like a lot of people).

Right now I have Florida over Belmont mainly because of odds sake, but I hate having Florida in the Final Four.

I hate these mid major vs mid major games. And while I most certainly loved knocking off ODU, it's still not quite the same as knocking off a Big 6 teams whose fans come over to the Butler boards and talk **** before the game. ODU fans have too much class. And I always root for upsets, but then I don't want to root against BYU because they are a mid major with a chance of getting to the final four.

I don't blame Butler for that foul at the end. That was close and you could argue that it was a loose ball foul, which it might have been, but the Pitt dude didn't have complete control over it. I'd have reached out for it too.

Matt Howard is a smart man, take my hat off to him, for having the wherewithal to just heave it up immediately. Kudos to Butler, they are always game.

Exactly. If he did indeed have control of the ball then it was a travel. He walked about 10 feet before Mack touched him or even attempted to shoot the ball.
