FINAL Final Four Rankings

Sweet Sixteen:

Well it's been a long ride. Ups and downs, ins and outs, and here we are. The Final Sixteen Teams have been decided. 
By Region here they are:

Ohio State
Kentucky
Marquette
North Carolina

Duke
Arizona
Connecticut
San Diego State

Kansas
Richmond
VCU
Florida State

Butler

Wisconsin
Brigham Young
Florida

Teams in BOLD made the Sweet Sixteen last year. 

2 of those teams made the Final Four last year. 


1.Kansas Jayhawks - Once a difficult region to get out of, now the easiest one to get through. They play a 12 Seed in the sweet sixteen, and will play an 11 or 10 seed in the Elite Eight.

2.Duke Blue Devils - Last years champions. They have to be a favorite at this point. They still have some really good teams to get through, but they have the best Coach in the Land.

3.Ohio State Buckeyes - They destroyed George Mason. If they get past Kentucky, they will play UNC or Marquette. If they play like they did in the 2nd Round, nobody will beat them.

4.Brigham Young Cougars - We were all counting them out after they lost Davies, and now here they are, the highest seed left in their Region. They also destroyed Gonzaga who many people thought would beat them.

5.Connecticut Huskies - We saw how they finished the season in the Big East, can they ride that momentum?

6.North Carolina Tar Heels - Another team playing very well. Not giving them the Marquette game, but they have a better chance against them than Syracuse.

7.Wisconsin Badgers - They played great against Kansas State. I don't see why we should doubt them at this point.

8.San Diego State Aztecs - Their in the west, but I don't think their as good as the other top teams left in their region.

9.Butler Bulldogs - Here we are again, out of the blue, Butler beating one seeds, and back in the Sweet Sixteen, with a good chance to get to the Final Four.

10.Florida Gators - Another good team in the SouthEast. Four of the Ten teams are in the Southeast. You know what that means? Close games, upsets, nobody knows for sure who will come out of it.

Week 5 Final Four Prediction

                                                                                          

                                      

                                                      


People will call me crazy for still predicting Villanova after they lost to Temple. But, they are a young team, but strong led by Scottie Reynolds. This is who i predicted at the beginning at the beginning of the year and I'm going to stick with them.

Here is my "Sweet Sixteen", filled with the 16 teams i think will be left in the tournament after two rounds. This is not based on rankings purely based on how the team has done and how strong their players have been.

Clemson is here because i still think they're a good team and i had them in the Elite Eight in Week 1. They are a talented bunch and look for them to make a run towards the Elite Eight.

Elite 8 Rankings and Predictions

 Ranking the Elite 8:


 1. Louisville Cardinals: It took them 2 Rounds to heat up, but when they heat up, usually the team their playing is dead meat. The could've easily beaten Arizona by 50. They didn't because they started subbing halfway through the second half, usally a team up by 30 with Ten to go and already subbing would only win by 10, they won by 39. They look like the best team in the nation, they are the best team in the nation.

2.  North Carolina Tar Heels:  It's going to mess up my bracket if they get to the final, but if Louisville and North Carolina make it to the final, it mught be better than last years Championship.

 

3. Villanova Wildcats

4. Oklahoma Sooners

5. Connecticut Huskies

6. Michigan State Spartans

7. Pittsburgh Panthers

8. Missouri Tigers

 

 

Connecticut 97 vs. Missouri 85

Louisville 84 vs. Michigan State 75

North Carolina 89 vs. Oklahoma 86

Villanova 81 vs. Pittsburgh 76
