    I think you’re giving UNLV too little credit. I believe that have a very worthy chance to be a significant contender in the sweet 16 and possibly into the elite 8. And Holy Cross over SIU, I really was almost speechless seeing this. Holy Cross could not be a more inconsistent team. SIU has a legitimate chance to do very well this year. As its sixth year straight in the tournament, I think they’ll be doing big things.

    UNLV was the champion of a fairly tough Mountain West, while the Yellow Jackets have won only two road/neutral games this season. Kevin Kruger versus Javaris Crittenton will be an interesting matchup. And Southern Illinois has one of the best defenses on the nation. So both points are very valid. If you want to win a bracket competition, however, you have to make decisions and take chances that other people will not. I am more familiar with Ga. Tech as I live in ACC country, and I thought the SIU-Holy Cross game could be the most likely 4-13 upset.

    Besides, I would be shocked if by Sunday afternoon my bracket has not blown itself up and been received by Allah.
