Las Vegas - My first thought is, there are 67 games at the Big Dance, so while you're probably DROOLING and can't wait to get started, pace baby, PACE! So, lets dive in. Gonna start in the Midwest Region and grab Texas over Colgate. Like Colgate, as a TOOTHPASTE, but not against the surging Longhorns. Texas just blitzed the Big 12 tourney, beating Kansas, TCU and Oklahoma State. They also beat Kansas in the final game of the regular season. You go from the BEST conference in country, to the Patriot League, which is like the 27th best according to my man Jeff Sagarin's ratings. The Raiders from Colgate come to the Dance on a sweet 9-0 run, but beating Lehigh, Bucknell, Army (twice), Holy Cross, Lafayette (twice), Navy and Loyola-Maryland is like, SO FREAKIN' WHAT! Don't mind laying double digits in this spot, because the talent level differential is ENORMOUS! Hook 'em Horns!
