Upsets... Let's talk UPSETS - Who's your sleeper, etc
Ok... I understand you don't want to "give away your bracket" here in front of the millions and millions of MW-ites out there...but let's talk about upsets.
Going through the bracket here are the potential upsets (by seed not spread) that I see. (#8 vs #9 is a coin-flip so I've not included)
The ones I'm contemplating are: Weber, Tulsa, Wisc-Milw, Cent mich (this one is locked in...I don't mean it's a lock...I mean I've locked it in) Colorado, and Auburn.
Sleepers: Miss St.
I love Creighton against Duke- if they can get there.
I wonder about BYU beating Connecticut
Southern Illinois beating Missouri
Buzz, I dont go to games. I buy all the Directv packages and watch them from the comfort of my own home! I dont like listening to all the fans nonsense at games! I pay for blonde women to come over and have sex with my hispanic hottie maid, and sometimes I get involved to make it a threesome! I like to lay in my pool during the day sipping on drinks that have umbrellas!
the first game i circled was C. Mich. I think they will win outright. But I will wait on the game to bet it, I have a hunch that this line will go at least to 5 or 5.5. Everyone is in love with Creighton, personally, i think they are overated. My good friend went to the MAC tournement in Cleveland and said that C. mich is the real deal, when I get info from him he is almost always dead on. I also think that Utah catching 4.5 against Oregon has alot of value. Utah will control tempo against the Ducks. Oregon plays random defense and will not like the pace of this game
I guess the CMU secret is out. [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/img]
Of course, historically, one can make good money backing MAC teams in the tournament. I only with more had been allowed in. I think Kent and Western Michigan would have been good for some upsets or at least covers.
I also like Butler.

I watched Creighton struggled with Drake for 30 minutes before they BURIED them late. It was brutal...but they should have buried them the entire game considering how poor Drake plays against the full-court trap.
penn has NO SHOT vs ok state.
they have 2 6'8" guys archibong, and onyekwe that have ZERO muscle. both of these guys would rather post up, and take the 15' jumper
ok state will drill them on the boards, and this will be an easy win for ok state.
Butler has something to prove here to the committee and to the rest of the nation. They got snubbed last year and to go out in the 1st round wouldnt be too good for them, They could use this win over MSU to boost the committee's confindence that they selected the right team, let alone the team could use the confindence also!! Just my honest opinion!!
I'll take my chances, Penn won't need to rebound (offensively), they'll be drilling 3 pointers all game long...low scoring game, Penn comes out on top...when did Okla State get guys over 6'8"? Their freshman 7'2" center barely plays so it's not like Okla State is that much taller than Penn.
The most valuable commodity I know of is information
Miss State is a matchup not likely to favor Butler. Also, game being played in Birmingham (two hours from MSU) which is a huge edge for Miss State. Having said that, 8 points way too many points to lay in a very low scoring game. Can't wait to see the total on this one.
