Thought it would be nice to have a thread to discuss upsets, potential winners etc...
So far looking at 3 v 14 seeds, I think New Mex is in the clear they get by no problem. Florida and Mich St look fine as well... However Marquette looks like a possible upset against Davidson. I didnt even look at the spread till last of course they are -4 so bookmakers agree... You look at Marquettes scoring its very vanilla throughout. They fall into a trend where they havent won more then 9 games in there last ten...Overvalued for playing in the big east
They gave Kansas a 1 seed but sure made it tough - Georgetown and Florida are both tough and for a while everyone was saying Michigan might be the best team in the country..and would anyone be shocked if UNC managed to beat Kansas in the second round? I'm going to have a lot of variations coming out of that region in my various bracket entries....
I have plenty of first round upsets, however I also filled out numerous bracket situations where those higher seeds do prevail to the second round and further. Call me crazy, but here are some of my Goliaths over Daveys.
(14) Valparaiso over (3) Michigan St
(12) Ole Miss over (5) Wisconsin
(11) Belmont over (6) Arizona
(10) Iowa St over Notre Dame (not much of an upset)
(11) Minnesota over (6) UCLA
(11) Bucknell over (6) Butler
(14) Davidson over (3) Marquette
(10) Colorado over (7) Illinois (see above)
Final 4: (1) Louisville vs. (2) Ohio St
(1) Kansas vs. (1) Indiana
