If UK doesnt get there I woulds really love to see Butler and Gonzaga. These 2 teams are still coInsidered by some to be mid majors but I think they have won enough big games to be counted in with the other major programs. It would be refreshing to see a couple of teams play for the national championship that dont get a lot of publicity or respect, besides they are both excellent teams. The Zags have a great backcourt duo in Bell and Pangos and a really good forward in Harris and the center Olynick(I thinks thats the spelling) is a very dependable front court player. The Bulldogs have 1 of the best perimeter shooters in the country in Rotnei Clark. So tell me who would you like to see in the championship game not necessarily who you think will actually get there.
Miami.. traditional power house in football in a basketball conference.. but they have a great team this year and came out of no where
n maybe we can do that in football next year lol
I was going to say Butler...
but that thought scares me...
Brad Stevens has already taken butler to 2 championship game. If he manages to go there for 3rd time and if he wins. HOLY $$$$$$$4444!!!!!tttttttt
He can cause a major balance shift...in the top of collegiate school.
I like Miami, the coach is old and he isn't going to last much longer. He might actually retire after this season if he wins.
not sure who else.
I think butler is due to get knocked out early this season. If ky gets knocked out, I will immediately pull for the absolute lowest seeded teams in all remaining games.
I wouldn't mind this. Especially because they have Barry Larkin's boy, Shane.
They are doing well, I hope they are on the opposite side of us in the tourney.
I second this.
I dont know why but Miami slipped my mind completely and if 1 of the 2 teams I mentioned above doesnt make it then Miami would definately be my team of choice. Another team I thought of is VCU with Smart at the helm. They have been a tournament darling a couple of times before but they may have a tough time this year but I guess not too many people took them seriously before so its possible.
UK UK UK and UK. I care less about the rest lol. NO lets go with Butler, VCU, Indiana St. and UK.
Well, I have money on Michigan and/or Florida making it to the championship game. As far as the other 2...Miami and...Michigan State maybe? Maybe UCLA? I can tell you who I don't want, lol...Indiana, Louisville, Duke, Arizona, Kansas, or Ohio State.

personally i would HATE if UCLA made it because of Shabazz.. but maybe that is just me
Im not sure its just you
I would not want to play Miami. They have all the spots on the court to win against any one right now. wow. They are hot.
Clearly Miami, any team that destroy Duke and Ole Roy not once but twice is okay in my book
It's UK or nobody for me as long as UCLA, Louisville, Duke, Indiana, Kansas, and Florida don't win it all. I am sure there are others I could add to the list, but these are the only ones that I think have a legit chance at winning it all that I would not want to win it, hence, North Carolina, Tennessee, etc. not being on the list GO CATS!!!

As I said in an earlier post for some reason Miami slipped my mind altogether and I agree that Miami will be a tough team to beat the rest of the regular season and the tourney especially. They have an excellent well rounded team and I was glad to see them put the pedal to the metal against Duke and UNC. They would be my alternate choice to want to see in the final game of the tourney.
Miami and Florida (SEC)
Indiana will win it all this year is my guess.. Much as I hate to say it..They have talent and the talent level across the country is way down..Hope they dont but that is just my opinion.
Indiana has a good chance to get to the final four b/c of their talent. From there it will be a crap shoot as to who wins the final game. Joe Lunardi has IU,Mich,Duke and Miami as the final four teams as of now. That guy is pretty good when it comes to choosing the teams that get in the tourney. Gonzaga is another team that better not be over looked b/c they have an excellent backcourt in Bell and Pangos and a very good frontcourt in Olynick and Harris. I think it would be so cool if Gonzaga,Miami,Butler and 1 other non big name program.
