2009 Sweet 16 unique from other Sweet 16's in many ways:

The 2009 Sweet 16 is the highest seedest set of squads in the 25 years of the modern tourney era. Coming on the heels of the most predictable and upset- free dance in history (2007) and the only tourney to send all top seeds to the Final Four (2008), this is another ... more »

It does and doesn't bother me. I think we are in for a few surprises. None of the 1 seeds have looked that dominant with the exception of UConn, but they are about to play some really good teams.

Syracuse looks really good to me. The only concern that I have is their depth, and what will happen if their bigs get into a little foul trouble with the Griffin boys.
