I could definitely see memphis in the final four again this year. Their 3 losses came early and to good competition. They beat Tenn and Gonzaga on the road. If they lose, it will be to a good team.

I could see Louisville, Mizzou, Kansas, Mich St, Villanova and xavier making deep runs. Maybe even Purdue. A lot depends on luck and seedings ... more »

Unlike last year though these teams don't seem ... more »

I agree on the general parity this year. I guess you could say that UConn, NC, Pitt and Oklahoma are the dominant teams. But they all have issues.

Under five weeks until the brackets are released, im pretty jacked to sit behind my 52" flat screen all day long ha. What's going to be intersting is unlike last year where there were 4 or 5 major contenders this year there are a lot more. What do you guys think this years big dance will be like? Easy to predict? Lots of upsets? Possible cinderella?
