For college basketball fans, Christmas falls in March. Seeing the bracket revealed and printing ten out to practice is much more enjoyable than opening up any Christmas present. As people fill out their bracket, they will be faced with many questions: How many first round upsets do I pick? Will a 12 seed beat a 5 seed again? How far can I have a Cinderella go? Who wins it all? While we can break it down all we want, everyone knows you can’t exactly predict the games flawlessly. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t try to give ourselves the best chance to win as possible. So without further ado, here are some teams from each tier that you should be thinking about when filling out your bracket.

Jim O’Connell joined Anthony Pucik and me as One on One got ready for college basketball in March.  O’Connell told us which conference he thinks is the toughest and how far Wichita State will go in this year’s national tournament.  He also told us how he has not lost all confidence in Syracuse despite their recent slide and he gave us his pick for who might be a dark horse to bust some brackets this year (here’s a hint: Fordham has played them!).

Madness with the Master

by James Passarelli

15 seeds over 2 seeds.  13 seeds over 4 seeds.  Is a 12-over-5 even considered an upset anymore?  And how about that A-10 making a strong showing?  There's always plenty to talk about in the middle of March, and this year is turning out to be especially entertaining.
