    So 57.6% of SBR has Kentucky Winning Championship

    I thought it would have been a tad higher. I am among the 57.6%, but I could pick up ground with my Villanova pick as Kentucky's opponent in National Championship Game, not to mention a bunch of upsets in round of 64. In between, not too many upsets outside of Wichita State over Kansas in round of 32 and Arizona over Wiscy, which is an upset seeding wise but not in reality since Arizona will be a small favorite.

    Many do. That is why Villanova reaching championship is one key for me. Although it would be nice if Eastern Washington and other upsetters I have cooperate also.

    They should be though, they are not that special, especially compared to the other seven top-two seeds. Pretty confident they lose to Wichita State.

    I have that one too

    Our brackets are fairly similar. Biggest difference is I have UK v Duke & Providence in the Elite 8. Otherwise, our Elite 8 and Final 4 are the same.

    I guess I will need my upsets for today and tomorrow to separate from you then.
