10 Teams most likely to make it to the Final 4

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! ***Missed last week, but I plan to continue doing this the rest of the year.

1.Ohio State - Well, after much doubt, I have full confidence in this team. Not only to win close games, but to work together as a team. Now go ahead and lose tomorrow and make me look like an idiot .

2.Texas - Coming together as a team, and have had some great wins the past couple of weeks. They probably have more experience against teams that will be in the sweet sixteen and the elite eight than OSU does.

3.Pittsburgh - Losses to Notre Dame and Tennessee are both acceptable. Still looks to be a great team, don't under-estimate them or you will pay.

4.Connecticut - Lost to Syracuse, but had been rolling until then.

5.Kansas - Rebounded from their first loss and have been rolling. I still think they have it all, but I think they have been a little inconsistant. Too many close games for me to give them a spot in the top 4, but they still have talented players and one of the best coaches in the land.

6.Notre Dame - First new team this week, and they deserve it. They've beaten TEN top 100 teams, if not many, if anyone, can say that. Very experienced team that will shock some in the tournament.

7.Brigham Young - Jimmer reminds me of Stephen Curry a couple years back, a we remember where they ended up. Obviously BYU is already getting more media attention than Davidson did, but that type of player can carry a team a looonnggg way.

8.Wisconsin - They may not the talent like some of the other teams, but this team can control the tempo like no other. They also have a heck of a coach, watch out for them, and don't fall into their tempo trap if you want to beat them.

9.Duke - I have some doubt in this team right now. Do they have all the pieces? I say no. I also think they aren't as good as they were this time last year. Due to a weak ACC, I really don't think we'll know exactly how good this team is ... until it's too late.

10.Florida - This is probably where they would've been in the beginning of the year. They fell early, and have been crawling their way back up... I would love to see a Kemba Walker vs. Erving Walker matchup in the tournament... who knows it could be the championship game. Consider Florida back!

Teams to Watch:
Purdue
San Diego State
Villanova
Syracuse
Georgetown

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

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.

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
11.
12.
13.
14.
15.
16.


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.

Time for Some Valentine Love?

Georgetown Hoyas logo@ Syracuse Orange logo

 

Georgetown has gone 3-11 since their win against UCONN.

They are only 4-7 in Big East play.

Their only win was in their last 7 games was against Rutgers.

With Syracuse struggling is it time for some Valentine love for the Hoyas?

I think it's about time.

But Syracuse might have something to say about that. Syracuse is on a little skid of their own and being at h ome their fans will be trying to give their team enough love to defeat the Hoyas.

This game could just come down to who wants it more. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Hoyas play @ Syracuse at 12:00 EST time today.
