Ranking the Sweet 16

1. Kentucky - Well, this is the obvious choice. They best team they have played since Carolina is Indiana, and they will play them again Friday. Kentucky has all the talent to win a championship.

2. Michigan State - Draymond Green, can lead this team to a championship, you can almost count on a Final Four. Leadership is this teams biggest advantage.

3. North Carolina - They are a big question mark without Marshall. I have to give them the benefit of the doubt, knowing what they were capable of.

4. Kansas - Woah, got a scare from Purdue. They are a really good team, when they show up.

5. Ohio State - They have some of it all, leadership, talent, but is it enough to compete with Kentucky?

6. Syracuse - They played some really poor games without Melo, and the only reason they are this high is because of the other talent and their depth.

7. Wisconsin - This one people will question me on. They have been playing very well under the radar, how many people picked them to beat Vandy? When they come together at the right time, they are really really tought beat.

8. Baylor - Up and down all season, but they are still alive, and we know they could win it all, or crap out.

9. Marquette - Crowder is a beast. They are one big win away from a Final Four. Their lack of size greatly concerns me.

10. Indiana - Much like Baylor, at their best, they can play with anyone, they have beaten 3 of the Top 5 teams in this ranking, so obviously they can play, but their lack of experience will hurt them.

11. Louisville - They are one of the hottest teams in the tournament, but if they have an off day they are toast.

12. Cincinnati - They were picked high at the beginning of the season, and they are finally starting to reach their potential, how high can they fly?

13. Xavier - Hmmm... After that huge brawl and a big fall by Xavier for a while, who would've guess Cincy and Xavier would be sitting in the Sweet 16?

14. Florida - Not been big on this team all season, sorry Florida fans, just not this year.

15. North Carolina State - Really I'm not suprised by their appearence in the Sweet 16. I could see them beating Kansas, but overall they lack the talent and skillset of the other Sweet 16 competitors.

16. Ohio - I picked Ohio and NC ST to both be in the Sweet 16. They had a pretty solid season, good job!

Upset Meter: Round 1

After an almost upsetless Thursday, Friday certainly made up for it in a BIG way.

A 15 seed had not knocked off a 2 seed in 11 years when Hampton beat Iowa State. Yesterday. Norfolk State broke that streak by beating Final Four favorite Missouri.

A new streak began after that game and lasted about 2 and a half hours. Lehigh took down the Duke Blue Devils later last night. This is the definition of MARCH MADNESS!

Here were the Total Round 1 Upsets:

12 VCU 62 defeats  5 Wichita State 59
11 Colorado 68 defeats 6 UNLV 64
10 Xavier 67 defeats  7 Notre Dame 63
15 Lehigh 75 defeats 2 Duke 70
9 Saint Louis 61 defeats 8 Memphis 54
15 Norfolk State 88 defeats 2 Missouri 86
12 South Florida 58 defeats 5 Temple 44
13 Ohio 65 defeats 4 Michigan 60
11 North Carolina State 79 defeats 6 San Diego State 65
10 Purdue 72 defeats 7 St. Mary's 69

Bracketology: 1-27-12

Hello everyone! This is my first edition of bracketology this year, so bare with me, I'm a little rusty. If you see any mistakes, like rematches, etc, it would be very helpful of you to point that out! I differ a little from some of my fellow bracketologists, but I also realize at this point in the game, there will be a LARGE variety of differences between brackets.

Big Ten Predictions 11-12'

Well, I could be way off or right on track, but I have a feeling this year in the Big 10 Conference is going to be very top heavy this year. I believe 9 teams will get 8+ wins in the conference this year, while 3 teams will get 3 or less wins. Seems a little crazy, but I think it's a huge possibility. There are going to be 216 Big Ten Conference games this season and I'm excited to see every one of them I can. Here are my 2011 - 2012 Big Ten Conference predictions:

 1.  Ohio State

Current Record:
(13-1)

Predicted B1G Record: (15-3)

It could be better than this, but 3 losses is reasonable. I have them losing @Wisconsin, @Michigan, @Michigan State.

 2(TIE).  Wisconsin

Current Record:
(12-2)

Predicted B1G Record: (13-5)

Really suprsied with the loss at home to Marquette, if they want a 13-5 record in the Big Ten they better not lose at home. Have them losing to: @Michigan, @Purdue, @Illinois, @ Michigan State, @Ohio State

 2(TIE).  Michigan State

Current Record: (12-2)

Predicted B1G Record: (13-5)

Really impressed with this team, no bad losses, and they were impressive against Indiana. I think they are the second best team in the conference, though they will likely tie Wisconsin. I have them losing to: @Wisconsin, @Michigan, @Illinois, @Ohio State, @Indiana

 4(TIE).  Indiana

Current Record: (12-1)

Predicted B1G Record: (12-6)

Biggest suprise in the Big Ten this season. Lost to MSU in Zeller's first Big Ten game and without a crucial part to their game Will Sheehey - who was out due to injury. Still this team can win any night against anyone, but they are still inexperienced and will struggle at times. I have them losing to: @Michigan State, Ohio State, @Ohio State, @Wisconsin, @Michigan, @Purdue

 4(TIE).  Michigan

Current Record: (10-2)

Predicted B1G Record: (12-6)

Out of all the Big Ten teams, this is the team I am most uncertain with. I feel like if this team can get on a roll than can be deadly, but if they get on a losing streak they could lose their composure and go downhill in a hurry. I have them losing to: @Indiana, @Purdue, @Ohio State, @Michigan State, @Northwestern, @Illinois

 6(TIE).  Purdue

Current Record: (11-3)

Predicted B1G Record: (10-8)

Another team that could go either way. They could go 10-8 or 8-10 easily. They have to avoid losing a big lead as they have done in their losses this year. I think they are good and with Hummel leading them, should behave better than they did in non-conference play. I have them losing to: @Minnesota, @Michigan State, @Northwestern, @Ohio State, @Illinois, Michigan State, @Michigan, Indiana

 6(TIE).  Illinois

Current Record: 12-2

Predicted B1G Record: (10-8)

Really didn't expect them to allow Minnesota to hang around. They have been pretty impressive this year, but I'm not convinced they can play with the big boys. They have one of the most difficult Big Ten Conference schedules, they play conference bottom dwellers Iowa and Penn State only once. I have them losing to: @Purdue, @Northwestern, @Ohio State, @Minnesota, @Indiana, @Michigan, @Ohio State, @Wisconsin

 8.  Northwestern

Current Record: (10-3)

Predicted B1G Record: (8-10)

Suprsied they got blow out by OSU. I still think they can pull off some upsets, but they need a couple of key wins to make the tournament. If they play well enough they could go 9-9 or 10-8, but once again if they lose a couple of those games they should win, it will hurt them badly. I have them beating: Penn State, Illinois, Purdue, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan, @Iowa

 9.  Minnesota

Current Record: 12-2

Predicted B1G Record: (7-11)

Minnesota and Northwestern's play will decide whether teams like Illinois and Purdue get 10 or 11 wins. IF they play well at home they shouldn't lose 12 games, but without Trevord Mbakwe I'm a very concerned about them even winning 7 or 8 games. I have them beating: Iowa, Purdue, @Penn State, Northwestern, Illinois, @Iowa, Nebraska

 10(TIE).  Nebraska

Current Record: (8-4)

Predicted B1G Record: (3-15)

Every conference has to have the bottom dwellers, but the Big Ten's are still solid, but won't be competetive enough to beat anyone of signicnace. I have them beating: Penn State, Minnesota, Iowa

 10(TIE).  Penn State

Current Record: (8-5)

Predicted B1G Record: (3-15)

I think Nebraska is better than them, but this low in the conference it isn't that big of a deal. I have them beating: Nebraska, Iowa, Northwestern.

 12.  Iowa

Current Record: (8-6)

Predicted B1G Record: (2-16)

Iowa is the worst team in the Big Ten, yet still doesn't have a losing record. The Big 10 is the best top to bottom conference in the nation. I have them beating: Nebraska, Penn State
