Ricky P? or Roy Dub?

Well, if there’s an upset to be had out there, I won’t pick it (thanks Davidson). If there’s an upset that won’t happen, I’ll claim it as so (thanks Michigan State). Keep that in mind on my picks the rest of the way, as Memphis continues to make me look bad with every passing second.

East Region final
No. 3 Louisville vs. No. 1 North Carolina
A No. 1 seed has to lose in this round, right? You would have thought that one of them would have bit the dust by now, but all four of them are still kicking and looking good (well, besides UCLA maybe). Of the top seeds, UNC has been the most impressive.
I wasn’t necessarily impressed by the 100-plus point beatdowns of Mt. St. Mary’s and Arkansas. No, what really got me was the fact that they beat Washington State at their own game relatively easily. Of course, now that I say that, they’ll lose this one.
To be honest, Louisville is a team that could give UNC problems. They have the size on the interior to give Tyler Hansbrough issues and they have quickness on the perimeter. They also have Rick Pitino, which is worth something.
So will I pick Louisville? I’m tempted, but I won’t. That could come back to haunt me though.
Pick: North Carolina
