    Your upset special

    After looking at the brackets for a day, I have come up with my first round upset special. 13 Winthrop will upset 4 Washington State. We should make this into a betting game, with different odds on the games.

    Re: Your upset special

    Since I couldn't sleep well last week and saw alot of the Big West tourny I will say that if San Diego plays like they did in their tourney they could easily suprise UConn...

    I too, was in love with Louisville about a week ago. I've cooled on them some. If Tennessee gets upset in their first or second game - I don't see anyone stopping Louisville from reaching the Elite 8. But if Louisville has to go through the Vols, I'm not so sure now.

    I kind of like Temple over Michigan State.

    I think this is a real possibility; I believe UConn has overachieved this season. I really like Davidson's chances of going to the Sweet 16.

    I think Tennessee/Louisville has the potential to be the best matchup in the tournament

    I have Mt St Mary's over Coppin St. You can bet your kids' college savings on that one.

    Not huge, but St Mary's over Miami (Fla.). I also like UNLV to take out KU in the second round.

    As much as I have been saying KU goes out second round, after seeing their matchups I put them at the final 4. They just seem to have so much going their way constantly. I have NC beating them out though.

    Siena over Vandy, Tasheed Carr and St. Joseph's to the Sweet 16, Temple to the Sweet 16, San Diego over UConn, and Tim Floyd and the Trojans to the Final 4.

    I disagree with this one. GM is a trendy pick after what they did the other year but ND is playing pretty well coming into the tournament.

    Temple over Michigan State, St. Joes over Oklahoma, and Kentucky over Marquette are pretty tempting upsets I think. After watching OU in the Big 12 tourney I'm not very impressed with them right now. I have a hard time picking any Big 10 schools to make the Sweet 16 too.

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams
