As you can tell, I’m in a college basketball mood today. Like I said earlier, I really cranked up the analysis on this year’s potential winners, and I’ve come to the following conclusions…

(1) A Big East Team Won’t Win It All - It’s a great conference that will get 9 teams in the field, but there isn’t a team that could win 6 games in a row. Those are the facts. Some teams will do damage and I love St. John’s to make a nice little run, but if Pitt is the “pick” you can forget about a Big East team winning the National Championship.

(2) There Are 4 Mid-Majors to Watch - It’s tough to call these teams “cinderella” because they are good. They’ve even popped up in the rankings to a certain extent. If you want to get fancy.. Look at George Mason, Utah State, Cleveland State, and Wichita State to make moves.

(3) How Can You NOT Put Ohio State in the Championship Game – Ohio State has it all. Size, athleticism, speed, shooting, you name it. I’ll tell you what, watch them closely at the end of the season. If they’re playing good ball, just put them straight in the Final Four. There isn’t a team in basketball with more depth and talented personnel.

(4) Duke Won’t Repeat - If you think about it… this isn’t a bold statement. You know how hard it is for a team to win back-to-back National Championships. So lets just start from there. Secondly, I think right now they are too reliant on Nolan Smith. He’s a great player don’t get me wrong, but he’s doing too much on a loaded team. Singler is off, and obviously the loss of Kyrie Irving earlier in the season doesn’t help. Duke will be a 1 seed, but I could easily see a hot team knocking them off.

I am not picking Ohio State. They lost to my team, Purdue, last night easily. I think of the top 4 teams in the country, Kansas has the best chance.

I am still going for Purdue though.
