All right, this is who I think is going to be the Champion, Cinderella Story, and Disappointment for the rest of the NCAA Tourney.

First let me list who I think could be the champion

Ohio State, Duke, Florida, San Diego State, Kansas, and Pittsburgh have the best chance of winning it all IMO, they all have experience, star players, and good team Chemistry

I am going to have to go with Ohio State as the Champions . They have on of the best big men in the league in Sullinger. They have amazing team chemistry and have a feel for each other on the court. They are also a veteran team and experience is always a big part of the tourney.

I think that the Final Four will include: San Diego State, Ohio State, Florida, and Kansas. With the Jayhawks and San Diego State heading home in pretty close games. I then think that Florida will not be able to match up well enough and are just not good enough to beat the OSU Buckeyes

Now for my Cinderella Story which has to be teams like Cincinnati, Washington, and Kansas State.

I am going to personally go with Cincinnati making a nice run and beating some good teams to make it to the elite eight and barely losing. I also have on my bracket that Washington will beat UNC in a close game and Kansas will beat Wisconsin tonight.

Now for the disappointment which goes along with the Cinderella Story, teams like UNC, BYU, and Wisconsin could all lose tonight or tomorrow night which would be a huge disappointment to all these teams.

BYU is facing a team that just beat a good St Johns team and missing Davies could cause them to lose unless Fredette is amazing. I also can easily see Wisconsin losing to Kansas State and going home disappointed but I am going to have to go with....

UNC as the disappointment, they have not been playing well of late barely squeaking pass bad teams and getting crushed by Duke. I can see Isiah Thomas taking charge tonight and beating the Tar Heels.

Now for some fun lets show some of the buzzer beaters and upsets from this years tourney.

This was also last years Cinderella team and Butler also could be a potential surprise in this year tourney.

Here are some from champions week and there is one more I cannot leave off which is...

Isiah Thomas

Pretty good first article. As a huge self-proclaimed CBB fan (actually, just ask anyone. I like the sport too much haha), here's my feedback:

As for your picks - Personally, my Final Four is Syracuse, SDSU, Purdue and K-State. I'm really biased towards Syracuse and think they can handle Marquette, Washington (who I have upsetting UNC much like you) and then pull off an upset over OSU. OSU is probably the most complete, best team but that doesn't always mean you're going to win.

Personally, I don't see Cincy making it past UConn, and even if they do they shouldn't beat SDSU or Temple. I'd say the most likely cinderella is K-State since they're really hitting their stride.

UNC I think will lose to Washington. They start slow, and Washington is really talented. I picked Wofford over BYU, and think Gonzaga will finally knock the one man show out of the tourney. But I don't think that Wisconsin losing to K-State would be a huge disappointment.

As for your article - I think you have potential. You know what you're talking about, which is always important. My suggestions would be:

Clean up for format a little bit more. Maybe separate bolded headings for each section of your article. It breaks it up a little bit more and makes it easier to follow as your move from one topic to another (like from favorites to cinderella to disappointment).

Also, I think that you should expand on each part a little more. You've got a good start, but the more information the better. I know UNC has barley been squeaking by, but all readers might not, so let them know.

All in all, good read. I enjoyed your article, and am looking forward to any others you write in the future. If you have questions about anything, just let me know and I'll try to help you out.

Good post. I agree that OSU will at least play in the championship game

That was a great play by Thomas. He also made a great play to save the game last night.

Nice blog.

Thanks for the input, Kansas St. and Cinci were a toss up and more or less I agree with you. Also I see Syracuse getting to the Elite Eight but I am not convinced that they will beat Ohio State. (homer!!) Again thanks and I will make sure I put what you said into thought on my next blog.

Thanks guys, I love Isiah Thomas and think that he will be the next PG in the game to truly be a PG and not other positions. He has done a great job and should succeed in the NBA.

Thanks for commenting and go Ohio State! (If they win, I win 50 bucks)

I had Mizzou upsetting Cincy, so maybe I don't know a whole lot about the Bearcats.

I'm a Syracuse fan, which is why I took them over OSU. It should potentially be a good game.

Glad to hear it. If you're looking for some articles to read for some inspiration or models for , you should check out the posts that have been made in this group:

http://www.fannation.com/groups/show/60886

It's a CBB fan group I've created and run. Everyone who joins gets the ability to post for the group, if that's something you'd be interested in. If not I think it's a good group to be a part of as a college basketball fan, in my opinion anyways. But there are plenty of articles for you to read if you're interested.

Loved to join the group. I am now convinced that Kansas St. will be the Cinderella Story. Funny as hell if they beat Kansas. :). I agree that the OSU vs Syracuse will be a good game and would love to see Cuse upset them.

IMO the NCAA Tournament is the best tourney in American Sports.
