New Mexico State over Clemson is my upset pick for the day. Not going out on much of a limb, admittedly.....NMSU is really good, and I never bought Clemson this year.

Go Texas Southern. Doing the nearly impossible to Xavier couldn't hurt in the Jones recruitment, could it?

I see where Butler is a 1.5 point favorite over Arkansas even though the Bulldogs are the lower seed.

Hi guys! It's been a while. Hope you remember me!

The matchup no one is talking about: #4 Auburn vs #13 Charleston. I have picked Charleston to upset Auburn in my brackets. The majority of Charleston's players are back from last season. Consider them one of the most experienced teams in the NCAA Tourney.

A story that I think you'll find interesting: I was at the Illinois vs Nebraska game about a month ago. First time I had been in the SFC since it was remodeled. Great win for the Illini, yet the coolest moment of the trek was at the entrance gate. There was this tall boy standing behind me who looked to be anywhere from 13-15 years old, along with this woman and a little girl. I heard the woman say her son is on the Illini Men's Basketball team. I turned around and asked her who it was. She said Greg Eboigbodin. Turns out, the boy and girl are Greg's siblings.

We chatted for a bit. Greg's younger brother is about as tall as me (6'4"). She said it took them about 6 hours from Detroit down to Champaign to watch her son play. Great folks and she also told me Greg has enjoyed the college life thus far and playing basketball for the Illini!

I'm pretty sure you get 100% support for that pick here.

Dang. When Georgia State was up 16-11 on Cincinnati, all 16 of their points were from one guy, D'Marcus Simonds - http://www.espn.com/mens-college-bas...meId=401025820

(18-14 now, and someone else scored)
