Ah, the Atlanta regional. J.J. Redick's shocker. Daniel Gibson's optical illusion penis. A bunch of Ivy League dorks. The memories, we tell you. We're hoping Cal plays Duke in the regional final, so we can see the Cal fans play a prank on Redick.

Anyway, here's a rundown of "expert" predictions on who will escape the regional, with our own, entirely uneducated prediction wrapping it up.

Jay Bilas: Duke.
Daily Quickie: Duke.
Dick Vitale: Duke. (really!)
Andy Katz: Duke.
• Lenn Robbins, New York Post: Iowa.
Seth Davis: Duke.
Stuart Mandel: LSU.
The Amazingly Reappearing Joe Lunardi: Texas.
yoco: college basketball: Duke.
• Deadspin: Duke. Sorry.

We, as always, eagerly await your predictions in the comments.
