Posts Tagged ‘Kansas’

I broke down the other two regions in the previous posts, and here comes the second post!

Southeast Region: I called it, the upset over Pittsburgh, and now we have an eighth ranked team playing a four seed, Butler and Wisconsin… Frankly, I think Wisconsin is very overrated, even though they already beat Ohio State earlier this season, and I think Butler advances to the Elite Eight.  Jimmer’s Cougars will play a team that is also overrated, the Florida Gators… Yes, you can tell where this one is headed, Florida will loose, BYU advances to the regional finale.

Southwest Region: Other than Duke, there is no team I love to watch play, more than Virginia Commonwealth, this new found love just became as I saw them play live Friday and Sunday night, at the United Center… Its a great atmostphere, when the eleven seed wins three straight games, and is now in the Sweet Sixteen… They play an aggressive defense, and they rarely miss the many threes they take… Bye Purdue! Notre Dame was thwarted by Florida State, the team that VCU plays.. And in the top half of the region, Kansas should blow by Richmond, but many thought that about Northern Iowa.

NOTE: I will be taking a short leave of absence, the rest of the week, and when I come back, its baseball time!!!

Again, this is all going to be college basketball games today, standings will be posted sometime today! Thats a guarantee! Feel free to pick along.

Virginia Tech Hokies neutral against Duke Blue Devils The Hokies have already upset Duke once this season, and thats why I doubt it will happen again today, but if Nolan Smith does not play, and Duke’s shooters are cold, you’ll never know… Albeit, I know Coach K won’t let this one get away… Duke wins.

Memphis at Texas El-Paso (neutral territory) This is for an automatic tournament seed, its supposed to be neutral, but it is in El-Paso… Both teams have 24, and 25 wins, so a loss here may not dictate a no-show in March Madness, albeit this one is important… I’ll take Memphis.

Greensburo: Clemson at North Carolina North Carolina did not lead at all yesterday, up until it actually counted, they won off of a buzzer beater… Of course, players admit they got lucky, but we will see how good they really are today, if they can beat this seed-hungry Tigers team.  I go with North Carolina.

Texas at Kansas Both of these two teams will make the field, the question is at what spot? Texas will win this one against a Kansas team that barely escaped Colorado last night…

My Picks 3/11

Its a good thing its Friday, so that I can finally get the My Picks section up and going again!

Maryland Terrapins at Duke Blue Devils* In this ACC Conference tournament showdown in Greensboro, I was going to pick Maryland to take the upset, as I think they have what it takes… Albeit, I doubt the Blue Devils would let themselves drop a second in a row… I am taking the Dukies.

UCONN Huskies at Syracuse Orangemen* Another tournemant college match-up, seeds a game that the underdog will win in my opinion… Kemba Walker takes over the game and UCONN wins!

Colorado at Kansas* No team looks hotter than Kansas, and no team looks colder than Colorado, as they are on a 17 game skid… Hey, the Cavilers pulled one out of their hat eventually, and Colorado will today!
