VCU is not overated. If they upset Duke that's big time, Winthrope might be the George Mason, If not them im going with VCU

Default Re: First-round upsets

I hope more and more people take Davidson over Maryland and Winthrop over Notre Dame because neither is going to happen. I don't really think 9 over 8 and 10 over 7 as upsets. The upsets I'm looking at now:

12 ODU over 5 Butler. Butler hasn't beaten a decent team since mid-December, but ODU doesn't have the guards to go against Graves and Green. ODU is coming in hot winning 12 of their last 13, but they did just get hammered by mediocre GMU. I'm leaning towards Butler, though.

12 Illinois over 5 VT. When VT is on then they're really on (beat ODU by 17, App. State by 32, UVA by 27, BC by 17, and swept UNC), but when they're off, then they're really off (lost to Western Michigan, GW, Marshall, NC State by 11 at home, by 25 on the road and by 8 at a neutral site, and BC by 21). It's hard to judge a team that beat UNC twice, but lost to NC State 3 times. I've watched them played a bunch of times, and there's no telling what you're going to get. Might as well flip a coin here.

12 Arkansas over 5 USC. USC is way over-seeded as a 5, but then again, Ark probably shouldn't have made it in. If Beverley and Weems are on, then USC will be in trouble. Something is telling me Ark, but I'll probably go with USC.

11 George Washington over 6 Vandy. Vandy is way over-seed as a 6. I think GW has the experienced guards and enough height to match up against Vandy's guards. I'm leaning towards GW.

11 Stanford over 6 Louisville. I just haven't been high on Louisville all season. Stanford has had some injury problems, but they're healthy now, plus they have twin 7-footers. It's practically a home game for Louisville, though. I'm leaning towards Louisville.

Maybes:

13 Holy Cross over 4 Southern Ill
11 VCU over Duke
14 Oral Roberts over 3 Washington State

Stanford can definitely beat Louisville. They've beaten much better teams this year. Depends on if Padgett gets his touches.

I realize that 12 v. 5 has a better percentage, I'm just saying I don't know how much of an "upset" 10 over 7 is, much less 9 over 8.

Even some 5/12 games aren't really "upsets" in any sense except seeding. I've got VTech over Illinois, but would anyone be the least bit surprised if Illinois won? I'm guessing not.

I also have Holy Cross over SIU as my pick. I fell in love with them after watching them beat Bucknell. Torey Thomas is good.

Stanford has lost 4 of their last 5 games. They've lost 7 of their last 11. I don't see them winning this one.

A big mistake many people make is falling in love with a single player on a team. Yeah, everyone loves Durant, but what if the rest of the team is off? What if Augustin has 12 turnovers? What if Lofton goes 2-16 from the field? They could lose to Long Beach.
