What is the biggest upset you think will happen in the tourney this year? In any round.

In the first round, I'm picking MSU to lose to Robert Morris.
Also, I got Nova over Pitt to get to the final four.

VCU over UCLA is the sexy pick, but it's not gonna happen because there is going to be so much pressure on them.

This might be the homerism in me, but i really think Maryland can get into the sweet 16 :shrug:

I think USC will beat Michigan St in the second round, and I think West Virginia will go to the elite 8.

This is one of the first years that I really don't see any upsets that really screamed out at me from the get-go. The ones above are all distinctly possible, but I wouldn't put money on any of them.

I agree. I think the tournament will be very similar to last years...not a lot of upsets and high seeds in the elite eight/final four.

See, I disagree. I think after the top 5 teams, this thing is wide open.

First Round upsets:

12 Arizona over 5 Utah (not really an upset, Vegas has AZ favored)
11 VCU over 6 UCLA
11 Utah St over 6 Marquette
12 WKU over 5 Illinois

Second Round and on:

6 Arizona St. over 2 Oklahoma
7 WVU over 3 Kansas
12 Arizona over 4 Wake Forest
7 Texas over 2 Duke

I have this feeling that Northern Iowa will upset the 5 seed Purdue... I don't know why (Siena raped them), its just a feeling.

I think Bing could beat Duke, and considered making the pick, but with the game in Greensboro--not likely.

^^Duke (and UNC) playing their first 2 games in Greensboro is so unfair (especially to Texas, cause I think they have a chance of beating them).

utah st over Marquette
western Kentucky over illinois
VCU over UCLA

I forgot those. Those are all 3 definitely possible. Illinois and Marquette and weakened by injuries from pretty good players and Dayton is a solid team for an 11 seed (I think that's what they have. I'm too lazy to look).
