Biggest first-round upset?

    My biggest: Albany over Virginia. Don't see a lot of 2-15 or 3-14 kind of upsets, though Wazzou-Oral Roberts and Wisconsin-TA&MCC would be the most likely of them.

    Virginia's guard play should be good enough to avoid the upset. At least for a round.
  3. Damn, I think every single one of the 14 seeds has a chance ... Miami of OH, Wright State and Penn all have solid programs with vulnerable opponents.

    Plus I'm biased. I always root for the MAC schools and, judging from the way Oregon has been a media darling, I'd say they're ripe for the picking.

    I don't know if this would be the biggest first-round upset, but I like Old Dominion to beat Butler, which is in free-fall mode. Davidson-Maryland and Miami-Oregon are a couple others I'm looking at.

    Especially Miami-Oregon. I just don't trust teams that owe their seed thanks to coming from nowhere to win conference tournaments. See Syracuse from last season.
  7. For the record, I'll say Kansas appears safe in the first round this year, even without knowing who they're playing ... but God help them if they get behind late ... those demons can be hard to shake.

    Long Beach State over Tennessee in the yearly 12-5 upset.

    The commentators seemed to think Oral Roberts was gonna beat Wazzu. I don't know about that.
  10. You're not even a little bit worried?

    Nope. You must have missed both KU-Texas games in the past eight days, today's especially. You don't come back from a 32-10 deficit on a neutral floor against a beast like Durant unless you've got some serious resolve.

    This is the most mentally tough team KU's had in quite some time. Hardly anyone from that team that lost to Bucknell is around these days, that was a senior-laden team. So for KU's key players, last year was the first taste of the NCAA Tournament they had -- long story short, they lacked experience. They got it now.
