Tourney Field Seems Top-heavy

I was filling out my NCAA tournament bracket, and I found it really difficult to not put the top seeds in the Final Four.

There just doesn’t seem to be that many Final Four challengers beyond the top seeds. Of course, that will all change once the tournament begins and teams get hot. But right now, probably for the first time in the 12 or 13 years I’ve had filling out a bracket, I can’t pick any team but No. 1 seeds in the Final Four. It’s easily the least interesting bracket I’ve filled out.

The two No. 2 seeds I could see doing damage are Oklahoma and Memphis, but I just don’t see North Carolina and UConn, respectively, losing to them.

In fact, in one of my bigger upsets, I got No. 6 seed Marquette reaching the Elite Eight out of the UConn/Memphis region. I really like Marquette this year. Great guard play.

I didn’t take the Gophers or Bison to win. No big surprise, I’m sure. Not too many 14 seeds win, and I just think Kansas has too many athletes for the Bison to try and match up with.

As for the Gophers, as I’ve stated before, this team really lacks scoring punch. They just don’t seem to have anyone who can score a bucket down the stretch when they really need one.

And finally, I got the Tar Heels winning it all. Really went out on a limb, huh?

What does everyone else think? Is Tyler Hansbrough (aka Psycho-T, "The media’s Hardest Working Player in College Basketball") going to lead the Heels to the title?

    good luck with that Tar Heel pick. They will be lucky to get out of the 1st weekend without Ty Lawson.
