I haven't watched enough Gonzaga this year, but I feel that Iowa could give the Zags a real good game. Am I crazy?

This seems like a relatively popular upset pick, so nah I don't think so. The Zags biggest strength is their size and Iowa is up there with pretty much everyone except Kentucky in that regard. Gonzaga is obviously a lot better but Iowa certainly could play with them, especially if Gonzaga does what they usually do in the tournament. Other than KU it's the best 2 seed matchup we could have gotten, but honestly I'm just worried about getting past Davidson. That's going to be a really tough game and I just have visions of them making a billion threes and running us out of the gym. Cheering for a team who can't shoot (outside of Uthoff) is extremely frustrating.

If you want to game theory it and pick Not Kentucky Arizona or Wisconsin are probably the two best bets.

Eh, their ceiling is a little higher but overall they weren't as good as those two. Arizona was quietly destroying people and no one really noticed because it was on the west coast and they weren't as good as Kentucky. Also if you're going to go agains the grain and go with not Kentucky you might as well knock them out earlier, and those are probably the only teams on that side you could predict to do it without being totally crazy.

I think Arizona and Wisconsin are both better than Duke, but Duke got a loving cake walk to the Elite 8, and frankly, the Final. But generally speaking, you're right. I was mostly being smarmy about Duke.

It is true that the Duke side of the bracket is way easier, especially with Virginia at less than full strength (I guess this depends on how you feel about Gonzaga though). Arizona should have gotten their 1 seed but oh well.

Arizona's three losses are loving atrocious. Arizona should be undefeated, and couldn't seal the deal against three bottom-feeders.

I almost want a Duke-Arizona championship game because I want 2001 to be avenged. But I also don't want to have the chance of Duke winning another championship.

Duke lost to Notre Dame (twice), NC State (a tournament team), and Miami. Miami won 22 games, and Arizona's losses came to teams with fewer than 20 wins (and no tourney teams).

They got throttled by Miami though so that's probably worse than the Arizona losses. But in general yeah.

I will be very pleased if I can make it through the first window of games without an L. That isn't too much to ask, really, since there is a 2 and 3 3's playing, but I usually drop the second one so, uhh.... don't screw me on this one Iowa State.
