    this years bracket is gonna be tough

    Tougher to pick the winner this year than most I think. There just isn't that one team that really sticks out way more than the rest. I guess we will hafta see who has the easiest road to the final four.

    If the brackets came out tommorrow I would have no idea which direction to go. This is the most wide open season that I can remember

    Love it! Instead of everyone having the same winner and the pools decided early on, there will be a number of possible finalists. Should be very interesting...

    What's the difference between this year & last? Duke wasn't a consensus favorite last year and no one will be one this year. I don't really see it as that much off from last year. It doesn't really matter what happens right now - the DRAW is what it's all about. Duke wasn't considered the top team last year, but they got a great draw.

    It's gonna be tough from a bracket-picking standpoint, but great from a watching standpoint. Maybe best in 10 years.

    A lot of the teams I thought would go far have really fallen off as of late, and the teams peaking at the right moment now just don't seem like they're actually talented enough to put very far in the tourney. Very tough

    Sometimes it is very easy to pick who the champ will be...but this year will be different. Like eaglesphan said, we will just hafta see who gets the best draw. Like last yr...duke didn't stand out too much but they had the easiest road to the finals

    Yeah, last year everyone thought all those other top seeds would win and Duke would lose for sure.
