http://insider.espn.go.com/mens-college ... und-upsets

No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs versus No. 8 Pittsburgh Panthers or No. 9 Wichita St. Shockers
Upset chances: 48.7 percent versus Pittsburgh; 26.7 percent versus Wichita State
For all the talk about Gonzaga not deserving a 1-seed and drawing a weak bracket, the committee didn't do the Zags any favors by potentially Pitt-ing them against the Panthers in the round of 32. Pittsburgh is no No. 8 seed. In fact, our model calls the Panthers the seventh-best team in the country in terms of their base power rating (just two spots behind Gonzaga). Largely because of that fact, they have an absurdly high GK rating of 67. Then consider the fact that the Panthers sport the country's fourth-best offensive rebound percentage (40.8), force steals on 10.9 percent of possessions and play at a slug-like pace (339th in the country). That's not a pretty sight for the Zags.


I mean, if I rolled the dice on Pitt taking out Gonzaga and it happened, I'd probably win my pool and the money.

Despite urges otherwise, I picked Pitt to lose in the first round this year, which means they'll win the championship. You can all thank me when it happens.

there was a prediction/stats guru on sports radio 93.7 the fan driven by #1 cochran hyundai this morning saying basically the same stuff that the espn article is saying. statistically speaking, they gave pitt like a 12% chance to make the final four, which was something like the 8th-12th best odds to make the final four.

once again, we are all being suckered in

I only have 200 thank yous that I can send out to people who made this claim, and it would be unfair not to send them out in the order that the claims were made, so unfortunately I can't properly thank you. :pop:

I'm in...and judging by the fact that I watch college hoops like a housewife watches soaps and Oprah AND I won 5 of these pools back in 2009, I have absolutely ZERO chance of winning this group.

I know this is a minor, minor thing, but it irritates me that the first round of the NCAA tournament is called the second round now, because of the four play-in games.

The March Madness app is awesome. I just entered my FIOS login info, and I can watch all live games on my phone. Of course, it helps that I am on the LTE network.
