UPDATE: Well, sort of on the "dramatic," but not nearly as much as Saturday. Nevermind that I was basically eating the couch cushion for 38 of Florida's 40 minutes against Purdue. More of the same: Favorites continuing to roll.
UNLV over Wisconsin was an upset in name only; some of us foresaw Wisco going out in this round (yet some of us also foresaw Georgia Tech bouncing them, so go figure...).
Also, I have decided that 5-over-4 games in the Second Round (see: Tennessee over UVA) are the equivalent of 9-over-8 in the First Round; it's just hard to get too worked up that it's an upset, except...
USC over Texas! Given the OVERLOAD of hype for Kevin Durant and UT heading into this tournament, his exit in the first weekend is extremely notable (and not just because it busts any bracket that had the Longhorns, say, beating UNC and advancing to the Elite Eight. D'oh!) And to get worked over as badly as they did? The Longhorns are the Dud of the Tournament. I don't care how young they are: If Rick Barnes can't win with this much talent, he can't win, period.
Complete Sweet 16 coverage coming Monday morning. My bracket is pretty broken right now, but here's food for thought: If you used the "National Bracket" to make your picks, you'd be beating 90 percent of all individual brackets out there.
ORIGINAL POST: We can only hope that today's games match yesterday's for dramatic finishes -- with maybe one or two upsets thrown in for good measure. (If everyone -- um, me -- doubted UVA and they advance to the Sweet 16, does that count as an "upset?")
