One of the CBS guys said there have been 3 times that no #1 seed made the Final Four now. 1980 and 2006 Florida, UCLA, LSU, George Mason.

Bumping this back up for the forthcoming tournament.

I find it hilarious that Colorado wins the Pac 12 tournament in its first season there and Missouri wins the Big 12 tournament in its final season there.

The Big 12 deserves to have that much egg on their face (especially with all of their Kansas asskissing).

Missouri has a STRONG team. I wouldn't be surprised to see them win it all.

They would have won the regular season title too had the officiating not been so awful (the last ten seconds of the second half being an excellent example).

Just entered a bracket for ESPN. I have Kentucky, Missouri, Syracuse and North Carolina in the Final Four with Syracuse beating Kentucky in the championship.

The choker for the third year in a row will be Kansas. The team wasn't that good in non-conference play and I could see a team like St. Mary's taking them to the limit.

The President has Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio State and North Carolina in his Final Four bracket. I guess he's caught on to Kansas choking.

Boush, ya ever think that losing to UNC, the favored team, in the Elite 8 wouldn't be a choke?

Kansas was favored to win the championship the past two years and fizzled both times (not even making the Final Four). That's a choke in the biggest order.

This year's team (which is probably weaker than the last two teams) will probably lose in either the second round or the Sweet Sixteen. They weren't a great non-conference team (their three early losses cost them a #1 seed) and they won't have the partisan Big 12 referees around.

You are right, they chokes the last two years. Hell, I had them losing to Northern Iowa! They aren't that good, but their road to the Elite 8 is a CAKE WALK. Which basically means North Carolina's road to the final 4 is also a cake walk. It sucks that their path is so easy. Really wish Michigan State got their bracket and didn't have to play Mizzou in the Elite 8.

Somehow my NCAA brackets have Ohio State beating FSU, then FSU going to the Final Four. I've got FSU in that region, I'm just not exactly sure how ESPN's brackets threw OSU in there... If I accidentally clicked it, it should have erased FSU from the rest of the bracket...

Anyways, my Final Four are Kentucky, Missouri, FSU, and UNC.

Had them going down in the second round to K State even before the Fab Melo news broke. Now I'm just even more confident.

Two 15 seeds win in the same day! And I thought this tourney was going to be boring!

My brackets are officially busted. Every time I picked the upset the higher seed won, every time I picked the higher seed they were upset.
