I feel bad this year. I went for a lot of high picks. Also I think I had every #2 except for 1 in the final 4 hahaha.

I picked. I don't know shit about College Basketball. I haven't watched a college game since Grant Hill and Christian Laettner at were Duke.


note: that championship game was the ONLY college basketball game i've ever watched.

You don't really need to know anything.
You can do pretty well on these just going by rankings. I don't know jack shit about college basketball but I'm not going to pick a 16 seed over a 1 seed.
Sure, that COULD happen but its very very very unlikely.

You throw in a couple upsets here and there and hope for the best.

no 16 seed has ever beat a #1 seed and i think the final 4 had all #1 seeds only once. Not totally sure about that but i think i heard that before.

edit - yup im right

NCAA Tournament Seed History: Key Numbers

0- The number of times the No. 16 seed has topped the No. 1 seed. They’ve now had 108 chances, but they have yet to pull it off. In 1996 Western Carolina lost just 73-71 to first-seeded Purdue. They had two great looks at a three-pointer to win it, but they couldn’t quite get it to fall.

0- The number of times a No. 12 seed has beaten a No. 1 seed. The 12 seed may be a good pick for a round or two, but they haven’t proven able to get past the top-seeded team. The No. 12 seed is 0-18 all-time against the No. 1 seed.

0- The number of times a No.7, No. 8, or No. 10 seed has reached the Final Four.

1- The number of times all four No. 1 seeds reached the Final Four. It occurred in 2008 when UCLA, Kansas, Memphis, and North Carolina made it an all-chalk Final Four.

1
- You may be tempted to get rid of the No. 1 seed after just one win, but history tells us it isn’t a winning proposition very often. The No.1 seed is an impressive 94-14 in the round of 32. Basically, the top seed should probably be in your Sweet 16.

2- The number of times there have been zero No. 1 seeds in the Final Four. This happened in 2006, and it happened again last year in 2011. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this happen a little more often now since there are so many players leaving early for the NBA.

2- The number of No. 6 seeds to win the NCAA Championship. NC State upset Houston in 1983, and then Danny Manning and Kansas won it in 1988.

2- The number of No. 5 seeds to reach the final game of the tournament. Florida did it in 2000 and Indiana did it in 2002, but both lost in the final game.

3- The number of times the No. 11 seed has reached the Final Four. LSU did it in 1986. George Mason did it in 2006. VCU shocked the world by doing it last year.

4- The number of times a No. 3 seed has won the NCAA Championship. Three has been a popular number over the last few years in the NCAA Tournament. Michigan won it in 1989. Carmelo Anthony and Syracuse won the title in 2003. Billy Donovan and the Gators cut down the nets in 2006. Kemba Walker and the UConn Huskies won it all last season.

8- The lowest seeded team to win the NCAA Championship. Villanova was a No. 8 seed when they won it in 1985.

16- The number of times a No. 1 seed has cut down the nets since 1985. A top-seeded team has won the NCAA Championship in four of the last five years.

3-2- The record of the No. 11 seed against the No. 1 seed in their five meetings over the last 26 years. This is pretty amazing when you consider the fact that the No. 12 seed is 0-18 against the No. 1 seed during the same period.

59-6- The No. 1 seed is a dominating 59-6 against the No. 9 seed.

67-65- The No.8 seed holds a minor 67-65 lead over the No. 9 seed. These are almost always close games, and it should come as no surprise that the two are almost dead even over the years.

6.5- The highest average number of the seeds in the Final Four. This occurred last year when VCU and Butler stunned the hoops world. The second-highest average seed in the Final Four was in 2000 when the average was 5.5.

I did not pick Iowa State, Murray State or VCU.

Other than that, so far so good.

So every single person in our group had Duke making it to at least the Reg. Semis and a large amount had them in the Reg. Finals (almost all had them losing to Kentucky).

I should have gone with Kentucky instead of Duke. But Ohio State, Kansas and Louisville were all awesome picks. Now I just have to hope that Ohio State beats Kansas and Louisville beats Kentucky (just because a couple of you guys have Kentucky taking it).
