    Obviously we want our guys to take it all. However, it seems like every year there is that high seeded team that no one gave a second thought that makes it far into the tournament or shocks someone big. Who do you have this year? I would have to go with Dayton this year.

    I think you have to watch out for Tj Warren and NC State.

    I was about to mention NC State as well. Problem is they have Louisville waiting.
    I like Oklahoma State and Memphis....but those aren't real Cinderella's.

    I'll go with New Mexico state.

    If we get knocked out, and the shockers are still alive, I'll be pulling for them. Everybody loves an underdog story.

    THE GATORS! They weren't picked by anyone to win it all... I don't believe in fairy tails.

    NC State is one of the weakest at large teams to get a bid in years. Pomeroy says 66. Elo says 64. BPI 66. Even crappy RPI says 53. They're not a good team and 1 win over a slumping Syracuse doesn't change that.

    Tennessee, though. Wow are they underseeded. 13 on Pomeroy and 31 on BPI. 20 and 30 on Sagarin's two power rankings. They have the potential to wreck their half of the bracket.

    Edit: That is if UT makes it out of the play in game of course. Iowa should have been a 7 seed.

    I like UK and UT to both make some noise. I can see both teams making the Elite 8, possibly the Final Four.

    Ehh...I'll go with Dayton...I think they could sneak to the elite eight at least. The west bracket could have an interesting team and seems the best chance for a nobody to get into the final four as well though.
