    Arizona favored by 7. I'm going to to guarantee 2 things: 1. I'll enjoy the moment for now 2. I will be highly intoxicated.

    I mean, I KNOW we're not going to win the NCAA Tournament....but I'm really wishing I had grabbed some of that 500-1 action on Xavier 10 days ago when I was in Vegas.

    My dream scenario en route to a National Championship, unlikely as it may be:

    Arizona - Sean and avenge 2 years ago
    Gonzaga - Not as successful as X over the last 20 years but they get 5x the coverage because they're comprised of super scrappy scraggly haired scrappers
    Wisconsin - revenge for last year
    Butler - well, it's Butler

    A man can dream! Of course, if we lose to any of these teams besides Arizona I'll be apoplectic.

    We are not losing to Showty and company. This is the year X breaks through to the final 4. Zona fans think they are moving on to the elite 8 already and they are in for a world of hurt when they see how well X is playing right now. This is the run part III and it will end in the final weekend. Mark it down, it's going to happen bois.
    Dayton isn't that bad of a place if you haven't been anywhere else.

    Wasn't FSU favored by 7.5?

    4 or 4.5

    This line is a bit out of whack, though, because Sagarin would indicate Xavier should only be about 3.5 point dogs. Need to pick this one up before the line changes. (KenPom calls it closer to 6.5, so maybe the oddsmakers prefer KenPom to Sagarin).

    Arizona is tough with kenpom/computer raiitngs without one of there best players for 17-19 games.

    FSU was favored -7.5, opened -6

    Might be a trend line on Xavier covering, just saying.
