i got g-town ucla [again], g-town and unc


You're choosing Georgetown twice? I don't recall one single team being able to take up two spots in the Final Four.

I agree with North Carolina, so I'll stay with that pick.

UCLA lost Kevin Love, Russell Westbrook, and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. They will be a very good team in the Pac-10, but I don't see them making it back to the Final Four.

My picks are...

North Carolina.
Connecticut.
Duke.
Michigan State.

North Carolina is the obvious pick of everyone. We've seen the best and most talented team go down plenty of times, but I think they'll get it done.

Connecticut is most likely going to be the #2 team in the preseason rankings. UConn has two Junior's that are 7 feet or taller. They have the "big man" presence and they have the talent.

Duke did lose DeMarcus Nelson, but I think just about everyone else is returning. They were a young team last year, and they also bring in a great recruiting class. The kids now have experience and can lead this team.

Michigan State is a surprise pick. They have something to play for, though. The tournament will be held in Detroit. They have tremendous talent, and they should be ranked within the top 15-20 to start the season.


i get UNC but conecticut they lost to sandiego last year i may like them but there not in the finial 4. michagan state i get it you thinking cause there in detroit they will do well but not finial 4. unc we agree with so no argument. how can you not have ucla though there staced they have just listen jrue holiday a 5 star recruit with major game. josh shipp a very talented forward, darren collison enough said, alford aboya and malcom lee just to name a few of there talentd players. i will argue for g-town later and sorry for putting g-town twice i meant to put in duke


There are upsets every year in the NCAA Tournament. Good teams lose to bad teams, it happens. 2008 has nothing to do with 2009.

I stated my reasons for not choosing UCLA. I like them, they'll be very good and get deep in the tournament, but they will end up just missing the Final Four without Love, Westbrook, and Moute.

I didn't chose Michigan State just because it's being played in Michigan. They would have to get to the Final Four to even play there. They have the talent and they have the drive. They're a team that flies under the radar year after year.

Connecticut is going to be a far more talented team than Georgetown and even UCLA, that's another reason I picked them.


come on ucla ruels they could finially win it all this year. ucon has game but they dont play as a team nd g-town has a strong recruiting class coming in they have greg monroe for crying out loud. next they have freemen cook and summers. they have a really talented team this year and they will boucne back


Almost all of your arguments are based on previous play.

This isn't about 2008, 2007, 2006, or any other previous years. We're talking the 2009 season.

UCLA is good, I keep telling you that. They still aren't making the Final Four, though.

How many times have the four best teams made the Final Four? You always have upsets. Last season was the first time all number one seeds made it. That obviously tells you something.

You just talked about Connecticut not playing as a team. Not only is that statement incorrect, but you're mentioning one or two players from each team. Are one or two players going to lead a team? No. That would classify as not playing as a team. You've contradicted yourself there.
