    So tough, but I guess based on the fact that I have a dislike for either the school, coach, or program for everyone but UCLA, I will have to go with UCLA.

    UNC: in the words of my best friend "yea right dude"
    Memphis: Calipari = slimeball
    Kansas: get a smaller logo on ur court slash "yea right dude"

    UCLA: I'm not fond of love, but whatever. Howland seems like a good guy they seem like a respectable, clean program.

    when do the olympics start?

    The only thing worse than getting older is the alternative.

    These are certainly not my top 4 preferred options, but I'd have to go with UCLA. Their dynasty is far enough removed that there's not much of a connection to their current program, and there's just nothing to dislike about their current program really, though I'd like to find something. Give me 4 different final four teams and there's a good chance UCLA would be on the bottom, though, since they're probably around #10 on my list of top schools I never want to see win it all.

    Kansas: Rock, chalk, obnoxious. I've seen too many fans in person. As soon as they win one they'll be so much better than Duke that it will be intolerable.

    UNC: #1 on aforementioned list, plus they'd have two since we last won one.

    Memphis: Absolutely sleazy coach, though I can't blame a bunch of players who have no choice but to play college ball if they ever want to make it in the NBA. They'd be my second choice behind UCLA just because I'd like to see if it would stir any conversation about a school with a zero percent graduation rate winning the NCAA title.

    I like their game and I like the way Derrick Rose, in particular, is playing. Not a Calipari fan, but not a fan of the other programs, either.

    I agree

    I think Memphis has the best overall team. It is not a matter of liking one over another, but just who I think has the best team. Of the group, I originally picked Kansas, but now see them as last of the 4.

    I'll be rooting for the mute button once Billy Packer's voice starts to come though my tv speakers - just so I won't slip into some absurdly negative state of mind and start to have a strange distaste to the game of basketball.

    I will be turning the volume back on however during Roy's post game press conference to play my favorite drinking game --> 'Drink every time Roy refers to himself in the 3rd person'.

    I pick Kansas, because I think they have the best shot at beating UNC. However, I would really like to see UNC-Memphis. Overall, my choices would be Kansas, UCLA, UNC, Memphis (because I really don't like Memphis or its coach).

    Why doesn't everyone harbor an irrational, unfounded, uncompromising hatred for Kansas like I do?

    Me too. He is SICK. I'd take him 1st in the draft.

    I think a better question is why do you?

    Well... they just haven't won in a long time... not since Danny Manning carried them all the way and he was kind of likable. Plus, Since they last won, both Carolina and UCLA have gotten a championship... or two (sour face). Plus, we beat the crap out of them in 91'. For whatever reason, people just don't think of them as a dominant program as much anymore. That is my best guess.

    I don't really have any fondness for any of these teams, but I'd like to see Kansas beat UNC. I think Memphis has the best chance of winning it all.

    I don't know. I really don't. As I said its irrational and unfounded. But as I said, its also uncompromising, so even if I can't explain it, it will always be there.

    1) Kansas or UCLA are both equally ok with me
    3) Memphis (dislike Calipari)
    4) Rain out (I know... it can't happen inside) or every team gets the flu and they call the tourney off or they move the Masters up a week because the Azaleas have already bloomed and they cancel the tourney.... well you get the idea.

    For me, it's like the upcoming Presidential election - all of the choices suck. All I can do is hope for better choices next time.

    my perfect world

    obviously, it will be much more humiliating for roy to lose to Kansas, so I'll take that as my # 1 choice....as Kansas will find out, they won't be back in the final four any time soon and talk of DYNASTY will ebb..roy crys on TV

    my 2nd favorite would be for Memphis to beat UNC by 40 in the final, with Tyler and roy being tossed on technicals in the 2nd half with only about a minute to go...all those memphis guys will be gone, gone, gone....so, again...no dynasty talk..roy crys on TV


    my 3rd favorite would be for UCLA to beat the holes by 40, and tyler being held to 4 pts and NO rebounds or foul shots, while love goes for a career high and is voted MVP of the tourny... Roy is ejected at the end of the 2nd half and lawson just barely tweaks the ankle to remind him to go pro. Ellington and greene follow...roy crys on TV and can't even say "fricken"


    the Hole's private Jet is stuck on the tarmac for about 6 hours and psycho T earns his name...
