NCAA Bracket 2011 Predictions: Who Do Experts Have in the Final Four?

March Madness 2011 is in full swing and everybody thinks they have the perfect bracket.

Writers and TV talking heads around the country have already spouted off their picks and predictions that they are soooo sure about. Read on to find out who is picking who in America's greatest tournament.

This year's madness looks to be as crazy as ever.

With more and more players taking the "one-and-done" approach, the overall talent level of college basketball is down a bit. This also means the difference between a No. 4 and a No. 13 is not that big.

What's the result? Upset city baaaaby!!!

With the diluted talent pool, each region is going to be wide open. There could be more upsets this year than ever before. Outside of a few elite teams, I would say there are about 30-35 teams that could all beat one another on any given night.

So obviously the national analysts would be picking upsets left and right...right?


If you break down all of the "experts" picks...a lot of them have a bunch of No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in the Elite Eight and Final Four.

They are taking the easy way out and playing it safe.

I'll compare and contrast experts that are going out on the limb and picking major upsets, and I'll show you the analysts that are predicting all ones and twos in the Final Four.

This is your Reader's Digest version of what the top analysts are thinking as Thursday at noon inches closer.
