    Virginia over Michigan State which would apparently be a huge upset at this point.

    Cincinnatti over MSU. ISU over Florida. OSU over Zona. KSU over Wichita State.

    When the first move you make is to have ISU win the national title, it makes the rest of the bracket a lot less serious and a lot more fun.

    A few brackets with minor differences, but my most common beyond the 7-10 games were:
    11 Dayton over 6 Ohio State
    11 Tennessee over 6 UMass
    12 Harvard over 5 Cincinnati
    12 N.C. State over 5 St. Louis
    13 Tulsa over 4 UCLA

    I did those first three on all brackets, and last two on almost all of them. I have one w/ ND State over OU, I think.

    Second round
    8 UK over 1 Wichita
    10 St. Joe's over 2 Villanova
    12 N.C. State over 4 Louisville (on a few)

    That's the thing about that region. Somehow I have a Baylor Okie State elite eight and I went with Baylor. I don't feel confident with that but I can't think of a much more reasonable outcome.

    Picked Dayton over Ohio St, and Harvard to beat Cinci here in the first round. My other big upsets are in the next round; Stanford over Kansas and Arizona St over Michigan.

    I had American over Wisconsin. Almost worked out for the first 10 minutes of that game.

    Have Harvard over Cincy, SFA over VCU, Tulsa over UCLA, and Providence over UNC. Also had Dayton over tOSU.


    I also have Kansas losing to New Mexico and Nova losing to UConn.

    I went a little upset happy this year.
