|You have KU in your bracket? Ahhhhh!|
Interestingly, a first round victory by both teams this year would create a UNLV vs. Kansas second round matchup. I think UNLV would have a good shot in that game. But just like last year, I think almost any team Kansas draws has a shot at pulling the upset. In fact, I don't have Kansas advancing past the sweet 16 in any of my brackets. I believe UNLV is good enough to beat Kansas. If instead Illinois beats UNLV in the first round, I believe they are good enough to beat Kansas. And if nothing else, I think Louisville will knock them off in the Sweet 16. Even if I'm wrong, there's still a possible Notre Dame matchup looming in the Elite Eight. In any event, I would not pick Kansas to come out of their region, and history is on my side.
One last prediction- If I'm right on this and Kansas gets upset early in the tournament again, all of a sudden everyone will pick up on the "Kansas goes out early" theme and then it's all we'll hear about. You've been warned.....
|Like his doppelganger, Jon Arbuckle, Bill Self doesn't come out on top very often.|
