The Seeds, The Seeds!
The No. 1s are out. If the bracket plays out perfectly, we'll get a Duke-Memphis and UConn-Villanova Final Four. Two rematches from the regular season.
Initial bracket thoughts? Mine: The committee made the right call on Duke as the No. 1 overall seed. UConn sealed its own fate (albeit still a pretty good fate) by going one-and-done in the Big East tournament. And although the committee didn't get to consider the Big Ten tournament final, it was correct in choosing Memphis over OSU.
Jay Bilas and Digger Phelps can go to hell. They said beforehad that Ohio State should get the One seed over Memphis, and after admitting that Memphis WAS a one seed, the bastards said that Memphis will be the first One seed to lose. NOVA will be the first One seed o lose. Write it down. Glenn Condrey
BC looks strong, I thought they had the Dookies til JJs two daggers in the end. UConn (in spite of their loss to Cuse) might be the most dominate team in this year's madness, but a lot of seeds are going down for sure.
I agree with Glenn - Jay Bilas and Digger Phelps and the guys predicting Memphis out early are just plain wrong. They only lost 3 games and none by a blowout. They have already beaten every heavy hitter but Kansas in their bracket. Any team can get hot and if the more talented team is running cold you can have an upset, but there are plenty of talented athletic players on Memphis and Coach Calapari knows what he is doing. He has took UMass to the final 4 out of a weak conference. You just wait and see what he does.
