For whatever reason I didn't feel good at all about this game being an upset. But it seemed to be another one of those "sexy" upset picks by all the experts.

I know Oakland has some nice non-conference wins or whatever, but it wasn't even a month ago when Texas was a top 3 team, and some were lauding them as legit national title contenders.

I know they seemed to have their annual collapse but, for whatever reason, this didn't feel the same as last season. I was very surprised they weren't at least a 3 seed. They are the best 4 seed in the tournament, in my opinion.

I think Oakland is capable of winning, because the gap between them and Texas isn't huge, but Texas is a very talented and very good 4 seed.

I didn't pick oakland over them, BUT I think it's a potential upset. They're pretty good as a team. It Just wouldn't surprise me if Oakland won really.

I struggled to pick the Duke/Texas sweet 16 that is likely.

In all honesty I'd rather see UT lose, than the Heat lose, in fact I might rather the Bulls lose to the Heat in the playoffs, than UT win today.

Michigan is having some real troubles shooting. Nice D overall from the Volunteers.

This Visigoth sportsnet commercial or whatever it is seems to be on every 5 minutes with march madness on demand.

Yeah Michigan is forcing out those threes. Not to mention that Tobias kid(I think thats his name) has a nice game downlow and can get to the line and make them pay.
