    Re: First Round Upsets (NCAA Tourney)

    I honestly think things play to seed, excepting USC, and Butler. However I really don't consider the 8/9 game to be an "upset". I hate to say it but I think UNI gets drilled.

    Something tells me this year won't be the same as last year. I think we will see some upsets, I just don't know where they will come from outside of what I posted on here.

    NDSU is going to have a HUGE home court advantage, but I don't think that'll be enough. I'll be rooting for them, though.

    Re: First Round Upsets (NCAA Tourney)

    Sienna, NDSU, VCU and Western Kentucky is a must. I think UNI and Arizona can do it to.

    Re: First Round Upsets (NCAA Tourney)

    Midwest:
    Dayton over West Virginia
    USC over Boston College

    West:
    Texas A&M over BYU
    Maryland over California

    East:
    None

    South
    Butler over LSU
    W. Kentucky over Illinois

    This is actually a rather "tame" year for me as far as upsets go

    Re: First Round Upsets (NCAA Tourney)

    My upsets:

    Utah State over Marquette
    VCU over UCLA
    WKU over Illinois

    I don't count a 9 over an 8 as an upset since for the most part those games are pick'ems anyway.

    Re: First Round Upsets (NCAA Tourney)

    15 Binghamton over 2 Duke. My cousin is the play-by-play announcer for Binghamton, so in honor of him I'm picking one of the biggest upsets in NCAA history.

    Gut feeling. Good back court, same key players that knocked off Duke two years ago.

    Re: First Round Upsets (NCAA Tourney)

    8/9 are not upsets, so here is what I have beyond that:

    - Zona over Utah
    - Dayton over West Virginia
    - USC over BC
    - UNI over Purdue
    - Maryland over Cal
    - Michigan over Clemson
