2011 NCAA Tournament: Final Four Picks


2011 NCAA Tournament: Semi-Finals



No. 1E Ohio State vs. No. 1W Duke
Some may say these are the top two teams in the country. But who's going to win? Let's check the tale of the tape:

Offense: Ohio State (1) over Duke (6).

Defense: Duke (6) over Ohio State (10).

Margin of Victory: Ohio State (17.1) over Duke (16.8).

Conference Blowouts: Duke (9) over Ohio State (7).

Experience: Duke (defending NCAA Champion) over Ohio State (three freshmen in top six scoring).

Travel: Ohio State (Cleveland, Newark) over Duke (Cleveland, Anaheim).

As you can see, it's pretty even. Two things give Ohio State the edge:

First, many of Duke's numbers are skewed because some of those results happened with Kyrie Irving. And second, the travel comparison is a big deal. Only three teams since 1985 have traveled three timezones and still made the national semifinals.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1E Ohio State


No. 1SW Kansas vs. No. 2SE Florida
Unlike the other semi-final, this is a bit more lopsided. Let's check the tale of the tape:

Offense: Kansas (4) over Florida (12).

Defense: Kansas (12) over Florida (36).

Margin of Victory: Kansas (17.1) over Florida (8.5).

Conference Blowouts: Kansas (7) over Florida (3).

Experience: Tie.

Travel: Tie.

I have Florida getting to the Final Four because they're in a very weak bracket. Kansas wins.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1SW Kansas





2011 NCAA Tournament: Championship



No. 1E Ohio State vs. No. 1SW Kansas
This is so tough to call. Let's check the tale of the tape:

Offense: Ohio State (1) over Kansas (4).

Defense: Ohio State (10) over Kansas (12).

Margin of Victory: Tie (17.1).

Conference Blowouts: Tie (7).

Experience: Kansas.

Travel: Tie.

As you can see, it's pretty even. Both teams are outstanding and could easily win the NCAA Championship.

Both teams have a glaring weakness:

For Ohio State, it's their three freshmen. I don't trust freshmen.

For Kansas, it's their mediocre point guard play. It's not a bad situation, but the Buckeyes have the advantage.

Ultimately though, the Buckeyes' weakness is masked a bit by the strong upperclassmen that complement the talented freshmen.

Ohio State is the best team in the NCAA Tournament, and I'm picking them to win my bracket.

2011 NCAA Tournament Pick: No. 1E Ohio State

Quotes Chimp evaluation graph isn't designed to be an authentic assessment of the companies which market motor insurance in your location. It is really an example simply. Don't use it to discover which business you ought to provide your organization to. Beyond so, it's important to see the relative evaluation quantities of the corporations re-a-vis each other may change from venue to venue. Because inc decide their terrains and also additional underwriting variables otherwise, the business this is the cheapest in a single region might not hold the best price in an alternate region. As a representation, Wawanesa, which had the best theoretical price in this instance in Alhambra, had the next-cheapest price dependent on a single theoretical scenario in Berkeley, Ca.

Discovering the correct quantity and forms of policy contract to purchase will be dependent on a number of variables which might be specific to each person. Prior to buying discuss these QuotesChimp at size together with the insurance provider consultant.

Many customers don't trouble to examine their coverages, depending rather on which the representative informs them or a succinct summation that might be provided from the insurance QuotesChimp. And let us encounter it: the writing of an insurance plan isn't precisely Eliminated Against the Wind (even though it might appear equally as extended).

The safety of peploe is more important than a basketball game between a North Carolina team and Indiana team in the middle of Kansas. If you must cry about the coverage cry and grow up! Thank you God for the information and coverage.

Like SDSU near home vs a young U Conn team ,getting a point is just a bonus with a solid 2 seed,also like VCU ,had FSU for 10 units in the first and second rounds but VCU can play defense with them and have the penetrators to cause their great defense trouble,plus 4 points is great in that matchup.GL ALL

Duke will not make the final four. There defense is really over rated, and they should have lost to Michigan. SD State will run them off the floor.
