Just another month left. Some big bubbles are forming. Other bubbles are bursting. Who is in? who is out? The best ameture sports that is still pure.

Bubble team: Cal.

Florida the defending champs, the unanimous #1 seed, followed by Kentucky, Vandy and Bama.
Bubble teams: Arkansas, Tennessee, ole Miss, Georgia.

Big Ten:
There is Wisconsin and Ohio State and there is the rest.
Bubble Team: Indiana.

North Carolina and Duke.
Bubble teams: Boston College, Virginia, Clemson and Va Tech.

Big 12:
Kansas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State and Texas.
Bubble Teams: Oklahoma, Kansas State, Texas Tech.

Only handfull of teams can win this thing. Florida, N Carolina, UCLA, Kansas, Wisconsin, Ohio State and may be Texas A&M. Dark horse is unranked Texas. That freshman Durant can dominate both ends of the floor.

I know. Just for Durant I didn't put Texas in the bubble. Will he be 19? if not he must play for texas another year. New rules in NBA for rookies.

For those who like ABBA: (waterloo)

My my!! At Durham the dukies did surrender
And I have changed my destiny quiet a similar ways
injuries repeating itself...

Duke has lost 4 in a row. They are no longer an automatic bid team. Demoted them to a bubble team.

Well, my bubbles were fairly accurate. The biggest dissapointment was Alabama. Their slot was taken by Tennessee and amazingliy Arkanasas with a 7-9 conference record made it to the the tourney which by the way beat Bama twice in the season.

Illinois (12) was last minute decisions And I didn't follow Purdue. The biggest surprize was both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State not making to the big dance. This will be a busy weekend.

Teams that I missed was Maryland, Georgia Tech, Villanova. That was obvious. Never a conference has put up 8 teams in the tourney, anyways....

Shall we dance?

If you ever wondered if Kobe, Lebron or KG ever played in College it be Durant he's playing better than Carmelo did for Syracuse and that team won it all

March 12, 2007, 02:14 PM
I got Texas, Ohio State, Florida and Kansas in the Final 4

March 12, 2007, 02:35 PM
Fl (1) - gets by Wisconsin (2); UCLA (2) - beats Kansas (1); NC (1) (takes care of marquette, Texas and Texas Tech); and Louisville (6)(will face Texas A & M, Memphis and OSU).
Those are my final fours. NC and florida fighting for the championship. FL has the depth, skills to compete with NC and have experience over NC. A repeat champion since Duke (Grant Hill).

Durant is still growing and that is scary. He is much better than Carmelo at this point. Oden is no slack either. would be fun to watch who ends up where (NBA).

just a side note...i think durant is a notable islamophobe...not quite sure evidence wise but i gut says yes.

i kinda inflitrated an anti muslim group on the facebook network, and noticed kevin durant from texas there...though it could be an imposter, i highly doubt it as it may not even be allowed for a UT student to pose as KD.

then i read in SI that KD loves to read the bible and it seems in all likelyhood because of the conjuction of the 2 things that KD is indeed either an islamophobe or hangs around enough of them on campus.

It's really easy to make a fake facebook profile with a fake UT email address and pretend to be Durant. FB admins don't really check for validity, i mean i can change my profile and say i'm Kevin Durant.

Just do a facebook Search on Vince Young and see how many UT Vince Young's there are

Well we are at sweet 16.
My west bracket is still intact, got all my 4 right. UCLA, Pitt, Southern Ill, and Kansas. South, my final four team has been ousted already Louiville. I Only have OSU. Surprized by Tennessee though. Memphis and A & M will fight to get to elite eight. East, Tech loss busted my bracket. However, NC is still there. USC and Tim Floyd will have a rude awakening. GeorgeTown and Vandy are still going strong. UNLV must have done damage to everyone's bracket. I got the rest three correct. Butler, FL and Oregon.

SEC on a down year are 7-2 so far.

March 27, 2007, 04:25 PM
Final four is on.

UCLA facing Florida and
Georgetown playing Ohio State.

Florida vs Ohio State would be similar finals as the BCS bowl (college football), lol.

April 2, 2007, 04:27 PM
This is the same national championship game (as football had) but in basketball only from last year. Florida vs Ohio State. The table is turned. Florida is hot favorite now.

Defending champ brought back all five starters (rare occurance, and no one knows how did Billy Donavan did that). They are the most unselfish team. 5 starters scoring double figures but none over 13.6 points. Amazing!! They are focused and their only goal is to cut down the net tonight.

Ohio State: Deep! and Greg Oden!! Certainly he would leave for NBA in coming months.

They played early in the season and Florida crushed Ohio State. Time has changed. Ohio State is more tested. They won against Xavier in double overtime. The came from behind against Vanderbilt 20 points down. They have the right ingredient to sneek up on the Gators.

My pick is still Florida. The team, the unselfishness, the coaching they are almost unbeatable at this grand stage.
