March Madness Has Reached a Fever Pitch

Welcome back to March Madness, the most beautiful and wondrous time of the year. With an expanded tournament that now features 68 teams, there is even more room for madness than ever before. Madness madness madness!!!!! Despite this expansion, the NCAA still managed to screw over a few teams (Alabama, Colorado) while providing a continuously lame line of excuses for their exclusion and letting in teams that lost in the quarterfinals of the Conference USA tournament (Alabama-Birmingham). Mind you, such snubbery and controversy is very welcomed. It helps us pass the time during those last few days before we get to see a couple of 16 seeds duke it out in the "play-in round". With all that said, here is my top 5 picks for first round upsets in this years NCAA tournament:
  1. #12 Richmond over #5 Vanderbilt
  2. #10 Penn State over #7 Temple
  3. #12 Utah State over #5 Kasnas State
  4. #9 Illinois over #8 UNLV
  5. #13 Belmont over #4 Wisconsin
Start filling out those brackets people! Here's hoping this year's tournaments brings us many more moments like these:
