    Biggest upsets in your bracket?

    I fill out two brackets every year in my pool, and in one of them I took Belmont over Wisconsin in the first round.

    What have you got?

    Same one as you. I have no other major upsets. I have a few in later rounds with 6s beating 3s, etc.

Loose a game towards the end of the year (to a team you should have beat) on the road after winning your last 10 games . Than get embarrassed in the first game of conference tourney to a team with a lower seed, than get to the tourney and loose to a team you have never heard of before. I have a feeling Purdue is lacking a lot of confidence right now.

    yep, I've got this one too. Vandy is always over-hyped. Plus its a 12-5 matchup, so naturally the 12 should be favored.

    Also their sixth man Kelsey Barlow is suspended for the tournament. But they got a very good draw. I can't see them losing to St Peters or Georgetown/USC.

    I have Louisville in my Final Four in one bracket. They are playing really well right now.

    Re: Biggest upsets in your bracket?

    Gonzaga to the Elite 8 with wins over St. John's, BYU & Michigan St.

    Of course, that's on one of my 10 brackets I filled out on ESPN. The bracket I'm using at work is way more conservative.

    Re: Biggest upsets in your bracket?

    Richmond over Vandy, Mizzou over Cincinnati, and Gonzaga over St. John's in Round 1, Xavier over Syracuse in Round 2, and Louisville over Kansas in the Sweet Sixteen. I'm not really sure if any of those would be classified as "earth-shattering" upsets - in fact, on a lot of those, the only reason why they'd be upsets is based on seed number.
