Wake Forest is an extremely dangerous 4 and I love it.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

They lose to too many bad teams. Dangerous 4 seed = Washington. Watch out!

Somewhat.
Also, the Midwest is a complete toss up IMO. I feel like the top four teams are all even. If Wake gets hot, I don't think anyone can beat them.

Does anyone think that people are drinking to much of the Louisville kool aid and same with Pittsburgh? North Carolina has the most experience in this tournament over everyone else and with a healthy Lawson, I just think they are to good.

I'd say UConn has the easiest route. Washington provides the biggest obstacle if they progress to the Sweet 16 and I think if Memphis isn't as good as the team that had CDR and Derrick Rose.

Of the teams Carolina could potentially face, I think Gonzaga is underrated a bit and I believe their most serious potential opponent is Syracuse, not Oklahoma. Much of their fortunes still lie on if Ty Lawson can play and how effective he'd be eventually though.

That Midwest bracket is a tough one. Wake is a talented team, but a somewhat volatile bunch, although if they step up, they can beat Louisville.

I wouldn't overlook Mississippi State vs. Washington. Exactly who did Washington beat? UCLA and Ok St? Every non-conference schedule game was home except Portland (LOST) and KU (totally got schooled). Lost at home also to the only other noteworthy team, Florida. I would still say Washington is the favorite.

MW would be alot easier to pick if Wake were the 3 and KU were the 4. Wake has been too inconsistent for me though the last 2 months, only 8-6 in the last 14 games.

East is hardest to pick for me. How badly is Fields injured for Pitt? Nova or Duke have FF potential as well. All the experts I hear talk that FSU has a bad matchup against Wisc even though FSU has way more talent. Kind of a home game for Wisc.

UNC is a no brainer for me if Lawson is anywhere near 100%. But the "jammed toe" injury reminds me alot of LT this year. UNC is a totally different team w/o Lawson out there running the show. Sorry, I'm a huge Syracuse fan but I will not be fooled by their tourney run. They struggled all year in Big East play until they ran into the easier teams the last 5 games or so on their schedule. I want to call Oklahoma posers but I think they have the weakest 3 seed to contend with. I don't know much about Clemson to say they'll get dump there.

I'd be one drinkin' that Louisville Kool-Aid, I just can't seem to see anyone on the left side of the bracket beating them.

I also just took a big ol' gulp of some Syracuse Kool-Aid. But I'm usually wrong with these things.
