oh and who is your favorite team and who do you think will win?

I root for the Fighting Illini and think Kansas will win it this year. Best bracket year I ever had was 05 when the illini went to the championship. not a coincidence I do horribly when they lose first round!

I'm in. This year has the possibility to be one of the most ridiculous bracket outcomes ever. The number of ranked teams losing to un-ranked throughout the season as well as #1 seeds dropping games after only a week of holding the spot. Don't think we'll see a number one seed go down this year but it could very well be.

Vegas bets had the most for my Spartans to win it all as of Tuesday. Probably means we'll lose in the first round I'm really hoping UK doesn't get a bid, hate all this talk of their bubble chances. I've like the way Miami has played throughout the year, Indiana has battled very hard and I'm not upset to say that Duke has had a hell of a season. Gonzaga will be the first number one team out if they get that spot.

Go Green all the way

damn sparty! izzo ALWAYS has his guys playing hard in the tourney! You're right, Miami is a team to watch, and Duke or IU could certainly win it along with MSU and UM. The B10 has some firepower, hell OSU could go far and the Illini have beaten two number ones this year in IU and the Zags. In fact I'm about to watch the Illini play IU while at work.

Unanimously the best conference this year. IU, UofM, Ohio State, MSU, Illini. Minnesota and Wisconsin fought hard throughout as well. The entire season was like watching the big ten tournament. Poor Penn State

Miami's coach, formally leading George Mason, knows how to direct a team in the tournament. I just think given Duke's overall schedule, wins vs. top 5 teams, and toughness really makes me think they'll go far...as much as I hate to say that. Izzo builds his teams for tournament time, no one can deny that. They have loses against tough teams to begin the season but power through.

In all honesty I'm more excited for the Spartans next year...have the possibility to be amazing, only losing Nix. Having Payne (hopefully), Dawson, Harris, Appling, Trice, Valentine all back would be amazing

I'm a UK fan but that's not happening this year, maybe Pitino and the cards can keep the title in the state at least.

UK was a joke. With or without that injury, overrated and this is the problem w/ Calipari's system. You build a team on one-and-dones a "team" unity will never be created. Yes you will have good seasons, but there is a reason teams that have second and third year guys do as well as they do. I'm tired of all the bubble talk for them, they should not get a bid...even with the win against Florida. My Idaho side will be disappointed if BSU does not get in and they do.

Must be a weight off your shoulders knowing you don't have to blow your bracket picks given that they won't be in the tournament this year.

no, that was last year

they'll prob be a 7-9 seed and i'll have them go to the final four as usual and they'll lose first round to bust my bracket.

Signed up. I like that Selection Sunday and St. Patty's Day fall on the same day It's probably good I didn't end up going to Chicago this weekend, probably would have fallen in the river.

Edit: Let's go Badgers!
