    Pitt FTW[​IMG]

    But looking at the alignment and the fact that a lot of those teams can beat eachother on any given night, it's hard to make a pick of whos gonna winit[​IMG]

    I think the top 4 teams are at a disadvantage with the 2 day layoff...and i can see Georgetown or one of the 5-8 seeds making a run at winning it.

    [​IMG]@ me still being extremely optimistic with GT.[​IMG]

    *edit*
    Syracuse is my sleeper pick.

    Georgetown got a pretty good draw for a chance to play themselves back into NCAA Tourney consideration.

    I'm sorry, but they should do away with those last eight scrub teams and just have a Double-Elimination with the top 8.

    Go Marquette!

    They dont got it too bad with the 5 seed.
    Win one game play Villanova.
    Win that game play Lousville (most likely)
    Championship already.

    They get to completely avoid Uconn and Pitt until the championship.
    Good thing Lousville somehow got the one seed because they're definatly not better then Pitt or UConn

    Hopefully, Cuse makes some noise.

    Still trying to get tickets. Sucks that the school only had 60.

    If G'town can win the 1st they might have a chance to make some noise, they match up with marq and villa, nicely.

    With that said, Gtown could lay an egg, figuring the way they're playing.

    I really think Pitt will win it all. Im hoping for Pitt vs Villa in the finals.


    no thread jack...how many teams you guys think the big east will get in? I say 7

    No $#*! them. I'm mad I'm not getting tickets to the BET.

    My pick to win it is Louisville. When they're on, very few teams could beat them. Seton Hall over Syracuse[​IMG]

    This is my problem with inviting everyone. Less tickets, which were already harder to get. It becomes virtually impossible for a team like Marquette to get anykind of support. I just wish the sold the tickets more to students. But everything now is about $$$

    As for in person. You need to go to a tourney. It is amazing. You can't beat it, NYC, so many different fans. The atmosphere is crazy in MSG.

    When I got the chance it was when Ben Gordon went crazy [​IMG]
