Biggest first-round upset?

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Mystery_Meat, Mar 11, 2007.

  1. Truth be told, I try not to watch college basketball until tournament time ... and if I do it's Big Ten, ACC or SEC ... where I have roots ... not Big 12.

    Y'all got a tough bracket.

    Is Winthrop beating Notre Dame an upset?
    Davidson over Maryland, Illinois over Virginia Tech, VCU over Duke and Arkansas to beat USC.
    It will setup in the second round Butler-Davidson, Illinois-SIU, VCU-Pitt and Arkansas-Texas.

    My rule-of-thumb critera: a genuine upset involves a top-four losing in the first round. The 5-12 game always produces at least one 12 winning, and 6s and 11s are too close to call it an upset when the 11 wins.

    So by MM's standard, when I pick Illinois over Va Tech, it's not an upset?

    I can only hope.

    Seriously, though, Penn's pretty fucking good.

    I could see Arkansas beating USC.

    Other than Oral Roberts-Wazzu, I don't see a lot of huge potential upsets. I'm not buying the Wright State thing.
