Consensus:

ACC = UNC (Big shock here..)

Big East = Louisville (4 votes edges out 3 for UCONN. Big East has most variance with 4 projected winners.)

Big Ten = Michigan State (6 votes. It will be funny when Wisconsin surprises again and we're all wrong..)

Big 12 = Texas/Oklahoma (Each gets 4 votes. Lone ranger Jeff Fox goes with Baylor to ruin a possible consensus.)

Pac-10 = UCLA (Unanimous along with UNC)

SEC = Tennessee (Everyone but Kevin & Shawn go with the Vols. Kevin's LSU pick is really the only one of the 54 selections out of Left Field.)

 

*Joey is the only voter whose selections all match the consensus. Jeff Fox has the most unique picks with UCONN, Purdue, and Baylor.
