    Interesting choice. I would have always gone with Syracuse-Richmond since it was the first one.

    I hope it was worth it and you made a lot of money shaving those points, Jamaal.

    At some point, a 16 will beat a 1. That'll save ISU from being at the top of these upset lists.

    I remember when that dude from Vermont hit that shot "from the parking lot". I was stunned.

    Before that ever happens, we need another 15-2.

    I've noticed that ISU has crept up (or, rather, "down") this list over the year. In 02-04, it was around No. 3 (behind the UCLA-Princeton and UNC-Weber State, sometimes behind Syracuse-Richomond). But over the years, it went to 2nd, then 1st for about the last 5 years.

    Reason: It's the most recent.

    Belmont almost did it to Duke in 2008 ... it was close to the same ending as ISU-H*****, except Duke got the late basket. If that one had come to pass, it would permanently bump the 2001 game down/up a notch. That's the type of shocker we need sometime soon.

    As long as it's not ISU losing. C'mon, you know damn well you've thought about it happening as much as I have. I've posted in another thread about this as well. I've been a Cyclone fan too long and seen som of the strangest things happen to this team. If ISU ever gets a #1 seed, it's going to be some long sleepless nights until we win that first game.

    Ban him...BAN HIM!

    I remember that like it was yesterday...very early on, before my official enrolled Cyclone years. I kinda felt that same way when Texas beat us last Thursday.

    This is probably only #1 because of the reaction of that round little coach going spread eagle. Blame him. I hear he is in Omaha now with the doormat.

    Re: The BIGGEST 1st round upsets in NCAA Tournament

    I remember when #15 UNI knocked off #2 Missouri during that "ice storm" we had back in 1991. I do believe that was the 2nd round though.

    1990, 1st round, 3 vs 14. I remember my teachers all going nuts since most of them graduated from UNI.

    It was #14 UNI over #3 Missouri in 1990. There was no ice storm that day. UNI got shaft in 2nd round against Minny.

    Without looking it up, I'm going to guess it was Taylor Koppenrath in the 2005 tourney against Syracuse? I actually picked Vermont to win that game and the guy running my bracket gave me all kinds of **** before the game. I still bring it up to him.


    I stand corrected. It was Sorrentine. I do remember Koppenrath being the leader of that team. Everyone hyped him up like he could be drafted, but nobody has heard much of him since.
