    UK - 2010/11 National Champs

    Have them winning it all in two brackets and here's why. It always seems like the team after the team that is supposed to win it all does, I base this on Tennessee football more than anything, they never won a title with Peyton Manning, but didn't they win one the season after he graduated? Harrelson is this years' Zoubek, only better offensively. Miller and Liggins are the keys. They can beat Ohio State, but I think George Mason beats them to it, as well as someone beating Kansas for them. They would have played Duke last year if they had beaten West Virginia,they beat WVU this year and Duke awaits them down the line. I got UK versus BYU for the finals.

    Uh, I'm sure you saw what OSU did to GM. Unless KY can get OSU in an track meet, KY will not beat OSU. Buckeyes are just too strong inside and the Cats have nothing inside. I would LOVE to be wrong but I have to be realistic. I would gladly eat big crow if I'm wrong.

    By this logic Kansas should win it all then.

    I've had my share of wrong picks over the tournament so far, as plenty of others have too. I don't see a team getting past Ohio State though; IMO, they should be the champions.

    As much as I hope this is accurate, I don't see UK advancing any further. I'm thinking OSU/UNC with the Final Four on the line is going to be a tremendous matchup.

    I feel Harrellson has earned a little more respect than that with his play...

    You are absolutely correct and my apologies to Mr. Harrellson. Probably the better thing to type was Jorts will need PLENTY of help inside. He will not be able to bang without some help. Hope he has the game of his life.

    Now that I can agree with.

    I look for Harrellson to play harder than he ever has. Not only for his team and a chance to advance, but for his future as well. With his recent play, he has garnered some looks from the NBA. I think he realizes this is his chance to show how good he can be and prove he can hang with the big guys. A big game against Sullinger cements his status as an NBA prospect. That's something worth fighting for.
