They already won their record-tying 13th straight regular season Big XII title. Now they get to rest up for the big dance.

Oh yeah they will make a run but was surprised they got beat by TCU. Horrible foul at the end of regulation.

The one thing that kills me about Kansas is, despite their talent and ability to come back from big deficits, they also have a tendency to go cold and keep opponents in the game. I've only seen one or two games all year where they really pulled away by midway through the 2nd half. They were also without one of their top players, and they have very little bench depth. And the Big XII was a tough conference all season. No easy wins there. I just hope other teams eliminate all the other Big XII teams that make the tourney, and there should be several.

Well I'm ready for Sunday's Selection show and ready to fill out my bracket (or ten :D ). May have to post our picks and see who does the best?

Brackets out. Some fun match ups. Can't till mine out. Got a sneaking suspicion there will be a few more upsets this year.

I went for some upsets. I have WVA beating Nova and Kansas over UCLA with the Jayhawks winning it all.
I can't say as I really put that much thought into it. Just played because my fantasy baseball league has made a tradition of having a Tourney league as well. I'm going for Big XII schools to dominate baby!
Gotta say though, that East bracket is tough. Nova, Baylor and you can't count Duke out.

And, LOL, just looked at my bracket progress and see I almost made a brilliant upset pick with Princeton over Notre Dame. Almost. Damn.

I went with a few upsets too, so far I'm perfect but looks like that is about to change with with ETSU losing to Florida unless there is an epic comeback.

I just don't know if any of the Big 12 teams are consistent enough to make a run. I have WVU and KU both losing in the elite 8.
