    Come on.. Luck? Maybe UNC is just better than everybody else. :wink2:

    Hopefully you guys will come around and just admit that they're the best team in the country when they cut down the nets after the championship.

    Gloat I think you're confusing luck with skill. The good teams show up this time of the year, not the pretenders.

    Uhhhh....

    That's like saying "Well if we would have scored more touchdowns we would have won" or "Well if the team would have had more hits with RISP then we would have won."

    Sometimes you have to give the other team credit.

    I'm no UNC fan and in fact I strongly dislike them but they are good and have a good shot to win it all and you can't call them overrated if they do.

    UNC was given the easiest road to the championship also, let's not forget that. While Louisville and other good teams are being knocked out due to tough regions, UNC is playing no one. Oklahoma was their toughest game so far.

    No biggie. There are only about 300 kids left in America that aren't fake UNC fans, and this will convert the rest.

    At least I was right about Pitt... I called it at the very beginning of the tournament. I thought Louisville was going to win it all. Now, if Ty Lawson stays healthy, I'm going to go with UNC to win it all.

    I think the most dangerous, talented teams are already eliminated... Memphis and Louisville.

    I'm not the greatest at picking college basketball games, but I did pick Kansas at the beginning of the tournament last year.

    every kid under the age of 25 is a unc fan. They're the most bandwagon-riding fans on earth (UNC fans).

    That's what happens when you're consistently one of the top teams in the nation. Nothing wrong with that. I don't see what it has to do with being over rated though.

    It doesn't. Them being projected as the 1 seed was what made them overrated. Whether they luck out enough to win it all or not, they weren't the best team in the nation.

    So them being the pre-season #1 and then living up to that and winning the national championship (if they do) means they're over rated? That seems like they were perfectly rated to me. #1 at the start and #1 at the finish.
