NCAA Tourney

So since the brackets are set to be made tomorrow. Anyone want to share their picks to win it all? I'm kind of going with my heart but despite their loss in the ACC tourney today I'm still going with UNC. If they're completely healthy (McCants) I don't think anyone in the country has a better starting five. I think UK and the Illini are serious contenders too. But then again, its March Madness so you never know. Looking forward to it though.

Seems as though someone is catching Neowin fever after having me pimp it to him haha.

I'm definitely thinking illinois will take it. After that loss, they'll probably be woken up and more hungry for it.

DUKE will win, Illinois is a good team and might take Duke down but duke will play strong like they did earlier against NCState!! J.J. Redick with 35 points!!! Excellent game. Sheldon Williams is probably the best blocker in the country. With Ewing, Redick, Williams, Randolph, and Melchioni, Duke probably will make it. If Redick played like he did today their gonna kick some ASS!!

UNC may be good, but they are hardly consistent.  Santa Clara School of the Blind!  :laugh:

Hey i said best starting 5 lol. That was without Felton. If ANYone doesn't play I know they're screwed. And like I said it was a sentimental pick partly but I think the thing's more up for grabs then people are thinking. As for Duke, what happens if Redick goes cold like he did in the second half against UNC? They rely on the three way too much. I agree that Illinois is the strongest team but the best team on paper doesn't always win. They're the easy pick. Anyone got darkhorses? Maybe not to win but cause some hell? The Zags aren't really a darkhorse anymore but I think they can go Elite Eight at least. And I wouldn't be surprised if Syracuse went deep or even won it all. They looked good in the Big East tourney. And GT seems to be peaking at a good time. Of course it depends a lot on how the brackets fall so this might be better to hold off for tomorrow night. I'm jusst obsessed with college ball so I could talk about it endlessly and I have nothing better to do right now

Duke has a good chance and its who I'm rooting for.

Look for Villanova to be the cinderella. Funny that Randy Foye was my classmate when I was a freshman and now he's in the NCAA tournament. Well, he was the best player in the state that year so its not surprise.

Duke won't win. I personally don't care for Duke but putting that aside they just aren't deep enough and probably won't make it past UNC if they get that far.

My pick, for a bunch of reasons, is probably going to be Illinois. First, I'm from there and well that's who I root for, but second I think the loss did help them because as much pressure as they can handle, I'm pretty sure it's a ton easier without having to worry about that as well. Not to mention they know what happens now when you play to "not lose". There are a couple more reasons but those are the biggest two.

Look for Syracuse to go deep into the tournament.

Yeah everyone's jumping on the 'Cuse bandwagon because two years ago they got overlooked and look what happened. I've liked them from the beginning of the year but having to possibly face Mich St., Duke, and UK or Okla? That's a tough lineup. I'm a bit worried about that now. Still have them in the Final Four in my neowin bracket though lol so I really don't know.

To bad Maryland ain't in the tournament. You think that any other team knows the formula? Duke might got some tricks up their sleeves. Watch out they'll go all the way IMO.

March 17th i'll be watching the Duke game on CBS, just like you all should :p. After the game i'll also look at your brackets... lol. See all the Duke hatred. I'll laugh if they win, I'll laugh if I win the NeoWin Tournament, hahah! Which is still questionable cause I know alot of you people got good picks.

Syracuse in final? :laugh:  Villanova has a better chance than them.

the cuse are pretty hot right now...and i just don't see who will challenge them in the austin section. oklahoma and kentucky will choke like always, and duke will just get beat. there's nobody else left in the bracket now but syracuse.

Hey J-Abad, just curious but how did you pick your favorite teams? I see that you are from Illinois and yet you root for Duke (not the Illini), the Eagles (not the Bears), and the Bulls. Just curious to see your thought process. I know someone from Pennsylvania (near Philly) who's a Bears fan, Yankees fan, and I think Orlando Magic fan.
