    I honestly can’t confidently say anyone aside from Blue Bloods like Duke or Kansas

    MSU and Gonzaga too.

    I would say PSU is definitely the outlier of the group. But they have a top 40 offense and defense this season. They aren't great at anything, but for example they aren't as bad defensively as say an Iowa or Oregon team is, and they are much better offensively than teams like Rutgers, Colorado and Texas Tech. Also, I think PSU is about to go on like a 7-2/6-3 stretch here given their schedule. Auburn is essentially PSU lite.

    Thats who Iowa reminds me of! Thank you! I was watching the game last night trying to place the other team i thought they were similar to and couldnt get it. Oregon! Good call. Although i think Iowa is better on offense ( only slightly ). Defense is very similar imo.

    Yeah Penn State was definitely one that came to mind. They are solid but 1. They are Penn State and 2. I don't think they have the make up of a team that could even rattle off 4 in a row.

    Stevens is good, but I dont see him carrying a squad through March.

    You already know at this point I am out on OSU. Yeah, they can beat probably anyone, but 4-6 anyones in a row?? Not seeing it. You can't turn it over that much and win consistently. Auburn is so extremely meh imo. Maryland is another I don't see it with. They have the talent but theres no consistency especially away from home. Butler peaked early but are not that good.

    Those teams would be my biggest outliers. But again, what alternatives are there?? I'd have to sit ant think for a while.

    There aren't that many, in my opinion. Only teams I can see winning it all are:

    Baylor
    Gonzaga
    Kansas
    Louisville
    Florida State

    Duke
    Baylor
    Kansas
    Seton Hall
    Michigan State
    Oregon
    Maryland
    UK

    And I'm good with that list, knowing full well who I left off.

    It still hasn't really happened that a program has come out of nowhere to win the national title (though a few teams have come really close). Baylor has been around for a while and hung around almost Final 4 status. So, they're not that unlikely of a champ.

    I do think that this year any number of probably 40 teams can legitimately make the Final 4, without even that good of a draw, and that should be really exciting for a lot of fans of different teams.

    Oregon will play every team close. Even the bad ones.

    I just can’t say anything yet... it’s not worth the jinx and after 6 years or so of not sniffing the tournament I’m just not at liberty to talk about it
