So where's all that talk about how the ACC was just as good as the Big East?'Nova about 4th or 5th in the Big East pounds the 2nd best team in the ACC.

i lost wake forest in the 1st round. then i lost pitt and oklahoma in the first round. i had UConn losing to oklahoma in the championship. for me the best case scenario for me would be villanova beating UNC because a lot of people have the tar heels winning it all and then i need villanova to beat UConn because a few people have the huskies winning it all. but with all that said, i think im pretty much done and have no shot at winning it.

im not on the villanova bandwagon, but i am rooting for them to beat the tar heels in the final four and then the huskies in the championship because it would help me out in my bracket. not too often do i ever root for a team from philly, but i am right now.
