I think Alabama will again surprise some people at the tournament this year.
We are going to mop up the floor with Kentucky next Saturday and that should make some people take notice.

im still saying washington to make the final four. no one knows about them but they start 4 or 5 seniors and play as a team... which is much underrated in todays game

I will have to agree with Bama, i think the Crimson Tide will, yes, be a contender, i dont expect them to get close to winning, but im sure they will do well..... once it gets to march madness, i turn into a Big fan of the Crimson Tide!!!! I just like the Org, and they have been a Fav of mine for a while!

I don't think Alabama is a sleeper because they will be favored in their first few games. I'd watch out for Notre Dame, Georgetown, or DePaul to upset a few highly ranked teams

i dont know if youd call them a sleeper, but i think villinova has a real good shot at a final four. theve beaten kansas and BC, and should be a really good 4 seed

Hi, this team will not make the final four or anything or anywhere close but vermont is a talented ball club I look at them to get in the tourney probally 11 to a 14 seed and get out of the first round and depending on what bracket there in very possibly make it to the sweet 16 if everything matches up right ok now im gonna go so you all can bash this post and call me crazy lol :new_Eyecr

the problem with vermont is they have played two powerhouse teams this year and lost by 8 (kansas) and about 20 (UNC) they have also lost to team such as boston U, Maine, and American U.

WHOA! Im speechless, I never expected such an early exit, we played horrible down the stretch. Losing 2 big games at the end of reg season and an awful showing in the SEC tournament now this.......excuse me while I go cry!

Thats just terrible. But its fate, 12 always goes over a 5. Stinks but its reality.

madison even tried to let them win by missing several key free throws but... o well.. better luck next year.. hopefully my hoosiers will overcome their terrible season next year or i may switch to Notre Dame.. although they didnt do any better... there are 0 teams from indiana in the dance and both the ones that made the NIT (indiana.notre dame) exited in the first round... at home

i understand loyalty but when you havent missed the NCAA in 25 years and suddenly you miss it 2 years in a row you start to wonder... plus we have a coach that doesnt know what he is doing but since our football team sucks we have no money to hire anyone better

If you guys wanna watch the games for free, you can go to cstv.com and register an account (stop after submitting step one), then go back to the cstv home page, open the video, login in with that, and it works. someone at another board found this, and it worked for me. pretty big error for cstv, but nice for all of us ;)

I know Syracuse is a 4 seed and Nationally ranked and all that. But we just dont get the respect STILL! After our championship we still didnt get alot of respect. We can win it all, if we get going we are very hard to stop. We could lose to Mich St in the 2nd round or Duke in the Sweet 16. Any team can lose anytime. But if we get going it'll be something special.

HAHA. thats good to hear atleast. I'd like to hear them get ANY recognition!!!! Even on ESPN the commentators are saying watch out for Vermont, I mean ya they got Coppenrath but their still Vermont. Jesus. And we get a 4 seed after winning what alot of commentators including Dicky V and Bilas called the toughest,deepest conference. Just unfortunate. Duke got a #1 seed via their name. Im not saying we shoulda got a #1, but I felt we had a chance at a 2, at worst a 3. Oklahoma at a 3? WHAT!!! No way! But its all politics.. Whatever works.
