First of all, FSU has been a great story all year. FSU has been involved in alot of close games and pulled a few out of their a**. I was actually in attendance at the Virgina Tech game when FSU came back from about 9 down with less than 2 minutes left and Snaer hitting that 3 that won it and I’m sure all can agree that it’s refreshing to have an ACC champ not wearing blue.

UVA breaking out and having a good year. Tony Bennett is nothing short of a miracle worker.

Mark Gottfried getting NCSU back to the NCAAT after so many years. It was also good that Karl Hess got in trouble. I hope that guy is finished or at the very least clean up his act.

And thanks as always to Duke and UNC for the usual controversies surrounding your games.

They are only controversial to those who lose…weird.

I agree it has been interesting.  It’s nice to finally be back in the big dance, hopefully we can make some noise in it.  All things considered, we got a fairly good draw, but we will see.

Of the five ACC teams that made the tournament, Virginia is the only one I see that I think doesn’t have a pretty good chance to make the sweet sixteen. Even NC State as an 11-seed has a good shot at making it that far, in my opinion.

With Fab Melo out for Syrabuse, I might even have FSU in the final four.  My bracket is busted before the first game has even been played!

That’s okay. Two years ago, I won my bracket pool despite picking Georgetown to play in the championship game when they lost in the first round to Ohio.

I agree and have State making the Sweet 16 by beating Belmont!

I got FSU losing to Cincinatti.

I like Belmont, UCONN, and Long Beach State.

UNC got the soft draw in my opinion… Kansas is overvalued… they could lose to Detroit.

Oh… and Florida… I like Florida too… even as a 7… they’re under seeded and could make a big run.

I hope I’m wrong.

I think UVA can beat Florida but go no further cause they are too short handed… I too think Carolina got lucky in the seeding…

Syracuse is in trouble and I had them winning the whole thing.
