    It's pretty easy just to pick your favorite team out of the East. So I'll go another route. I'm going Wichita St. They should get by Notre Dame, should, you never really know at this point. UK vs WVU is going to be a dog fight. If UK wins they may be drained from WVU pressing all game and then having to face Wichita's style of play. If WVU wins then they'll probably treat that as their championship and Wichita gets the win.

    Duke breezes through the South, giving the nod to Oklahoma in the East, Arizona out West, and it wouldn't surprise me to see Wichita State but UK is the safer bet.

    Yep, the East is wide open with the #1 and #2 seeds both eliminated. Picking a darkhorse out of that bracket would be the easy way out.

    I voted for North Carolina, partly because of the talent they have (took Duke into OT at Cameron) but mostly because I'm a Tar Heel fan. They have a tough row to hoe though - #1 seed Wisconsin is next for them and if they can win that one, they'll probably face #2 seed Arizona, who many thought should have been a #1 seed.
