    Gonzaga had one of the toughest non-conference schedules in the country, they are not overrated. In fact a case could be made that they are underrated because people keep harping on them playing in the weak WCC, totally ignoring what they did vs. a great schedule early on.

    With all that said, I don't think they beat Duke. My Final Four is boringly chalky too, three 1-seeds in Kentucky, Duke and Villanona plus a 2-seed in Arizona.

    I think Duke/Gonzaga and Arizona/Wisconsin would be tremendous regional championship games.

    I'm normally big on finding upset teams to reach the Elite 8, but to me, seven of the top eight seeds -- Kentucky, Duke, Villanova, Wisconsin, Virginia, Gonzaga and Arizona -- are just a lot better than everyone else this year. Not saying there couldn't be a flurry of upsets coming, but I think there's a definite dividing line this season.

    Like the first three, though again, Jay Wright scares me. Still, like Few and Gonzaga this season, I feel like this is his best team and maybe even he can't muck it up.

    As I said earlier, I just can't get on board with Iowa State. They certainly have the talent, the coach and the firepower, and I guess it wouldn't surprise me, but their D is non-existent and they show zero interest in valuing possessions when trying to protect a lead.

    I was thinking that too and was looking at the +318 on 5 dimes for the final four to be made up of all 1st and 2s.

    We are scaringly in agreement in just about everything, I have the other 2-seed Kansas losing to Wichita State in the round of 32 and Notre Dame as my final Elite Eight team.

    I agree with most everyone here that the top 2 seeds seem to be far superior then the rest. Have all the top 2 except in South were I have Utah and Iowa state with Iowa state winning. One very good defensive team playing against a top offense. Kty can't see losing, Zona think 2nd best team. VIRG beating Villanova. Kty over the Cavs. Best of Luck to everyone, not into this years like the past, I guess I'm a schlub. Usually play multiple pools but just one this year, winner payout is usually over 8k.

    I see a lot of Oklahoma, Baylor, Gonzaga, and Iowa State love. Of those four, I like Iowa state to crash the party and make a final four run. Oklahoma just plays poorly at the end of tight games, and Gonzaga only plays well when under seeded, and Baylor I saw none of this season. Baylor history dictates an early exit. My final four is Kentucky, Villanova, duke, and Arizona. Wouldn't be surprised if Iowa state beat Duke to make final four, but then again the duke bracket is the easiest by far.

    If I remember right, hasn't the final four/elite 8 been pretty chalky the last 2-3 years?
    Bye bye baylor. Anyone who took Baylor deep was crazy, this team was suppose to be a bubble team at best coming into the year. They're the definition of over achieving.

    ISU blows. Writing was on the wall when they trailed by double digits in all their games the last couple weeks. At some point that hilton magic runs out. They were acting like clowns last week, acting as if they won the final four after each big 12 tourney win. Someone tell Hoiberg and his boys they aren't the small program cinderella they used to be, act like you've been there before.

    Anyone that had baylor or ISU winning more than 2 games probably shouldn't be betting NCAAB in general lol
