It is less than a month away. The series of playoff games that differs from any other. This year there are no Ty Lawson and Tyler Hansbrough combination, Earl Clark, or Hasheem Thabeet. The team that stick out to me as a team that could be upset early is the group of youngsters in Kentucky. Led by freshmen John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, and Eric Bledsoe, the lack of experience will definitelybe a factor. Also, while Villanova has lost another game this morning, and still have Syracuse next weekend I do not favor them to get past the Elite 8. A team I do favor though is Kansas State. Led by guard Jacob Pullen, I believe every team needs to "Fear the Beard." With big wins over Texas, and huge games by Pullen against Kansas, it is no fantasy to say that they can play well against elite teams. I believe that everyone is doubting Texas after consistent losses, but I think that they will get refocused and are very capable of making a run. The key will be if the Longhorns will be able to get refocused in time for the tournament
