    Kentucky all the way, Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray make up the best backcourt in college basketball, plus Murray's archery celebration is awesome in my opinion haha.

    I agree about the archery celebration. Sota that makes it an archery discussion:lol:. I think KY is one of the teams that got hosed by the selection committee not to mention the toughest bracket. There were some other headscratchers too. Duke a 4 seed, c'mon great coach and good team but depleted by injuries and such. UNC deserves a 1 seed, MSU should have gotten a 1 seed. Should be a great tourney and with as many good teams and no great teams ought to be a fantastic time with a lot of surprises and plenty of great nail biting games.

    Ulis and Murray all day. If Kentucky can come in and play their "A" game, every game, we've got a good chance to win it all... Their only problem is consistency.

    NCAA tournament aside, next year's team is going to be ridiculous. I can't wait to see what those boys can accomplish. Calipari is going to have to stock up on backboards though.

    I think UNC. After watching everyone play this weekend, they were the most solid.
    UK looked really good too though.

    This topic was originally posted in the bowhunting talk rather than the water cooler, an egregious posting error:rant:

    Of course I'm picking Kentucky in one of my brackets. But, there are some great temas this year. I've got 3 brackets going right now in the office pool. UNC, Kansas, MSU, and Oklahoma are all great teams I've been watching play this year.

    Kentucky will have to play Indiana which will be tough one if the Hoosiers show up. Indiana is one to watch out for. If we beat the Hoosiers we will likely play UNC which will be a task and a half.

    With Kentucky's draw we can't have an off night. Thanks NCAA committee for hosing us again this year....

    If Kentucky doesn't win or gets knocked out I'm going to pull for Kansas.

    I thought Coach Cal's reaction to the selection committee was awesome!

    I like the way the Cats have played the last month or so. They are also healthy now, for the first time since before conference play. If they can stay out of foul trouble, they will be a very difficult out.

    Everyone is saying watch out for Indiana (and I do like that), but they haven't shown an ability to win outside of Assembly Hall, not even in Indy (vs Michigan).
    If I was going to watch out for a team it would be Purdue. They are really tough. Their biggest downfall is they're young, but when they're hitting shots and the big men down low are working, they will burn some teams down.

    I'm still going with UNC. I think the UNC / KY matchup will be the best game of the tournament if it's able to be played. Those are the 2 teams playing at the highest level right now imo.

    I'm a UNC fan. I do think they are one of the most talented team in the field. A lot of parity this year with no clear cut favorite. UNC tends to have nights where they lay a big fat egg! If they play like they played against Virginia in the ACC tourney championship, they will be tough to beat. That being said, I think they got the hardest draw in the bracket out of the one seeds. That's tough to come out of that region with the road ahead for them.

    My main bracket is filled - Kansas, Oklahoma, Kentucky, and Michigan State in the Final 4. Kansas vs Michigan State in the championship with Kansas taking it.

    My bracket is looking good right now. Picked Yale, Little Rock, UConn, and Providence to win.

    I'm mad at myself for not picking Wichita State.
