(CBS) -- Well, it looks like the experts at CBSSports.com really like this Sunflower State this year.

In fact, fully half of them picked a team from the state of Kansas to win the NCAA Championship this year. Unfortunately for Kansas State fans, none of them picked the Wildcats.

Here's a list of all their picks. Click the link to see their full brackets.

Gary Parrish: Wichita State

What you'll see is that I've picked Wichita State to win the national championship, and I didn't do it for attention. I did it because I think the Shockers are just as reasonable of a pick as anybody else.

Matt Norlander: Kansas

Ultimately, I think Kansas has the most talent of any team in college basketball. It has two of the 10 best players -- maybe two of the five best -- in Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid. And it has a coach that's won a title.

Gregg Doyel: Kansas

With or without center Joel Embiid, Kansas is going to win the NCAA title because the Jayhawks have, after Doug McDermott, the best player in the tournament -- Andrew Wiggins.

Jerry Palm: Michigan State

I have felt all along that HMSU (Healty Michigan State U.) is the best team in the country, but I wasn't sure we would ever see that team again.

Jeff Borzello: Florida

I'm going with Florida. I know it's not chic to go with the top overall seed, but the Gators are the most complete team in the country.

Dennis Dodd: Louisville

Can Louisville repeat? The answer, of course, is yes because the question is anything but outlandish. How many teams have a top 20 offense AND defense?
