10 Teams most likely to make it to the Final Four

Week 13
I will post my rankings here every week or so. I will submit my poll to the UTEA and OSUBuckeyeFan is going to put together an accumulative ranking of teams based on everyone's rankings. Just go here and you can learn about the rankings and start doing your own! Thanks!

1.Pittsburgh - I'm done ignoring how good this team really is. I picked them to win the tournament earlier in the year, and I pick them now.

2.Ohio State - There are so many good teams this year, and the truth is I think this team would have won the Championship last year. It will be more difficult this year with the amount of talented teams near the top.

3.Texas - I think they are the best team in the Big 12. What is crazy is that they could go undefeated in that conference... WOW!

4.Notre Dame - They don't have as much talent as the Top 3, but they have more experience. Sometimes that is the most important thing.

5.Kansas - I think the loss to Kansas State was just the typical upset loss against a rival.

6.Brigham Young - Jimmer Fredette is unbelievable. If he gets really hot in the tournament, I don't know if anyone will be able to stop him.

7.Duke - I'm not giving up on them yet. Like Notre Dame, experience can do wonders...

8.Wisconsin - They have to figure out how to win on the road or it will be another great season lost in disappointment because of a early tourney exit.

9.Florida - Those 3 bad losses seems to be behind them, but it still concerns me.

10.Louisville - They look really, really good right now. 

Teams to Watch:
Connecticut
West Virginia
Georgetown
Purdue
Syracuse
Villanova

10 Teams most likely to make it to the Final 4

Week 11
I will post my rankings here every week or so. I will submit my poll to the UTEA and OSUBuckeyeFan is going to put together an accumulative ranking of teams based on everyone's rankings. Just go here and you can learn about the rankings and start doing your own! Thanks!

1. Pittsburgh - Looking better and better. Beating Syracuse put should have put them as one of the top dogs for everyone.

2. Ohio State - They have their biggest test today in an extremely hostile environment, can they pull it off? They need to stay in this position. They may have the most balanced team in the nation (when Sullinger isn't scoring 40 points).

3. Connecticut - The Big East is showing it's muscles. Connecticut knocked off another top performer and is building a #1 Seed Resume come tournament time. Their only weakness is that Kemba Walker is the team.

4. Texas - They destroyed Texas A&M, destoyed and then beat @ Kansas. And while they probably won't jump Kansas in the Polls, I think Texas is good enough to get there.

5. Kansas - They were going to lose eventually... but at home???

6. San Diego State - This team is really good, really good. Their only dis-advantage is that they lack the amount of quality matchups the top 5 will get, that will hurt them on their road to the Final Four.

7. Syracuse - I don't know if they would have beaten Pitt with Joseph, but it doesn't matter, their good with or without him. I want to see them beat a team with him though. Otherwise this team is well balanced and has one of the best coaches in the buisness.

8. Duke - It's not that they played bad this week, it's that the teams in front of them played better. If they get Irving back, their #1 again, and yes a Freshman can have that much of an impact.

9. Brigham Young - Freddette is a beast. And he is playing unbelievable basketball under the radar, this alone will get unprepaired teams in the tournament. I think they will be moving up.

10. Villanova - It's hard to go to Syracuse and win. They shot the lights out in the first half... so my question is... did they have a great game today, and not against UCONN, or is Syracuse overrated? Or is UCONN that good? Those will be answered soon, so for now... their here.

Teams to Watch:
Louisville
Wisconsin
Purdue
Texas A&M
Kentucky

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
