Final Four Rankings: March 3rd

I will now update my Final Four Rankings DAILY!

March 2:

1.Pittsburgh - I still think this team is the team to beat. 4 losses isn't terrible if you are in the Big East.

2.Ohio State - Most well rounded team in the nation. Let's see how Sullinger does in the Big Dance.

3.Notre Dame - How many 3's did they make against Nova? How many? Oh yea, that's right 20.

4.Kansas - Bill Self is a great coach. Let's see if they can beat the biggies in the tournament.

5.Duke - Remember last year when everyone blindly forgot about Duke with the talk about UK and KU? I don't think anyone will make that mistake this year.
6.Purdue - I don't think they will make it to the Final Four, but they will probably get to the elite eight. They could get to the Final Four if they get a good matchup though.

7.Louisville - With other big teams falling they could sneak in with a really good seed in the tournament.

8.Texas - They have shown they can't beat a good team. But they have proved they can lose games their not supposed to. I still think they have been overrated just because of a win against Kansas.

9.St. John's - The Giant Slayer. Teams like this can make it far. They probably will get good seeding because of the good wins, which will help their chances either more. Look for them to take down the first #1 seed.

10.North Carolina - Great game last night. I thought they were toast. Zeller and Barnes combined are deadly.

Teams to Watch:
Florida
San Diego State
Wisconsin

7.Louisville - I really think this team is good. They have put a couple of bad losses behind them and are on a roll. This is a great shooting team as well.

8.Brigham Young - I know how much one players absents can leave a team. Hopefully they will figure it out by the tournament.

9.Texas - They have shown they can't beat a good team. But they have proved they can lose games their not supposed to. I still think they have been overrated just because of a win against Kansas.

Final Four Rankings: March 1st

I will now update my Final Four Rankings DAILY!

Impressions of teams can change quickly can't they?

March 1:

1.Pittsburgh - The loss to a red hot Louisville isn't all bad, in fact a Male Cheerleader tried to give the game back to Pittsburgh!

2.Ohio State - This is the most well rounded team in the nation, hopefully they can regain momentum. 

3.Notre Dame - Woah. They destroyed Villanova, absolutely murdered them! Wow. This team looks really good. They have experience, a great 3 point team, and a very underrated coach.

4.Kansas - I think they could go under the radar in the tournament, which would give them a huge advantage.

5.Brigham Young - Is the SDSU matchup, just a matchup problem? Or are they really this good? Well I don't know about that, but Jimmer is!

6.Duke - If they beat North Carolina they will be number 1. That is THE ULTIMATE TEST!

7.Purdue - They not only beat at Indiana, they destroyed Michigan State, though that's not saying much this year.

8.Louisville - They can beat anyone in the nation, but can they every night?

9.Texas - One Kansas game changed everyone's opinion of them. Now I'm just starting to think they had a good game. They just dropped one at Colorado and now at HOME against Kansas State.

10.St. John's - How many teams has beaten as many good teams as them?? Probably not any. They just keep doing it. I think those bad games in the beginning of the year are in the past.

Teams to Watch:
Florida
San Diego State
Wisconsin
Syracuse
North Carolina

10 Teams most likely to make it to the Final Four

Week 16
I will post my rankings here every week or so. I will submit my poll to the UTEA and OSUBuckeyeFan is going to put together an accumulative ranking of teams based on everyone's rankings. Just go here and you can sumbit your own rankings! Thank You!

1.Pittsburgh - Has 2 losses in a completely loaded Big East, there only other loss is Tennessee. This team is for real.

2.Ohio State - They need to avoid another loss this weekend. Is this Thad Matta's year?

3.Texas - The four losses concerns me, but becides the one slip-up in Big 12 play, they have been stellar.

4.Notre Dame - Barely beat Providence. An experienced team with an underrated coach. It would be better if they could do without the close games, but at least they can win them.

5.Kansas - A well rounded team with a really good coach, do they have enough tournament experience? I say yes.

6.Brigham Young - He is this year's Stephen Curry, only BYU has a better all around team. Look out for them in the tournament.

7.Duke - They are probably better than this, but they haven't proved it to me.

8.Florida - Can they win on the road? We will find out today, against a struggling Kentucky team.

9.Louisville - I have watched them play several times, and when their playing well, they are almost impossible to beat, times like this make it far in the tournament.

10.Purdue - My hoosiers couldn't save me from doing this. They went to probably the most hetic environment of the year and held of a vengeful IU team. They beat OSU and Wisconsin. They have never proven they could do anything in the tournament, will they this year?

Teams to Watch:
St. John's
Wisconsin
Connecticut
Villanova
Syracuse
San Diego State
