Upset Meter (Round 2)

 After a staggering 10 upsets in round one.... round 2 returns with 1 upset. And the last one i wanted. Purdue over Washington.

Leaving us at 11 upsets for the NCAA Tournament so far. There were 13 upsets last year. Could there be less this year? Yes. Easily. But yes there could be alot more upsets still this year than last year.

I think there could be an upset in almost all of the sweet sixteen games. I think UofL will have an easy trip to the Elite 8 though.
I also think Pitt will beat Xavier easily, along with Uconn and Purdue, and UNC and Gonzaga. They all have overrated teams their playing against in my opinion. Maybe Arizona is a little underrated, for their seeding.

I think Syracuse will beat Oklahoma, and Kansas and Villanova will defeat Duke and Michigan State. So yes their could still could be a fare amount of upsets.

I think once again all 4 #1 seeds can make the Final 4... but will they? And in my opinion.. NO. I think theirs a better chance that none of them make it rather then all of them. In the Elite 8, i think kansas can beat UofL, Syracuse or Oklahoma can beat UNC, Duke or Villanova can beat Pitt, and Memphis can beat Connecticut.

Here are the teams i think can still run for the title from 1-16: (ranked from most favorable to least)

  1. North Carolina
  2. Louisville
  3. Memphis
  4. Conncecticut
  5. Pittsburgh
  6. Villanova
  7. Kansas
  8. Syracuse
  9. Michigan State
  10. Missouri
  11. Oklahoma
  12. Duke
  13. Gonzaga
  14. Purdue
  15. Xavier
  16. Arizona
