Elite 8 picks

I went 5-3 during my Sweet 16 picks, so hopefully I'll do better in the Elite Eight. I thought Northern Iowa would get Michigan State but you shouldn't count out Tom Izzo this time of year. It was a disappointing end for Syracuse and Ohio State who I thought had the makings to reach Indy.

Midwest
No. 6 Tennessee vs. No. 5 Michigan State – Izzo reaches the Final Four again. He might be one of the top three coaches in the country.

West
No. 5 Butler vs. No. 2 Kansas State - Wouldn't it be something if Butler makes it to the Final Four in its hometown. Sorry, not going to happen.

East
No. 2 West Virginia vs. No. 1 Kentucky - This is the only region that played out according to seeding. West Virginia is good, but Kentucky is the best team remaining in the field.

South
No. 3 Baylor vs. No. 1 Duke – It's been the Blue Devils' destiny to reach the Final Four since the field was first announced.
