    I'm going to take Kan State over USC and Kentucky over Marquette. Anyone see a serious 13-16 upset?
  2. Georgia over Xavier

    My only prediction is that the guys closest to the end of the bench will be the most animated during the games and as a result, get the most TV exposure.

    I also have K-State, and I kind of like Winthrop over Wazzu. I guess I hate the Pac-10.

    My only prediction is that Dick Vitale will be cheerleading for his favorite coaches.

    Not sure if a 10-7 is upset territory, but I love St. Mary's over Miami.
    Winthrop is also one to keep an eye on against Washington State in a 13-4 game, and almost all of the 12-5 games raise an eyebrow.

    Oh, I also like St. Joe's over Oklahoma, if you're into No. 11 seeds.

    I got Valpo over Washington, Rider over Old Dominion and Brown over Ohio.

    From 11-seeds on down, I got Boise State over Louisville, Georgia over the X-Men, Temple over Sparty, and Baylor over Purdue.
  11. As a Mizzou alum, I always apply the Mizzou corollary and eliminate teams that lost to the Tigers as early as possible. Thus, USC beats K=State, Baylor beats Purdue and Texas falls in the Sweet 16 (only because I can't see AP, Miami or St. Mary's beating them though I think St. Mary's gives them a good shot). I like all of the 10 seeds if you even count those as upsets anymore.
