This is probably my second favorite sporting event in the world other than the NFL playoffs. Does anybody else get into it?

I have two brackets this year. One with dog wins and upsets, the other with mostly favorites winning. The upset bracket is for a large pool with >100 people. The favorites bracket is for a small pool with <20 people.

Utah State has the best chance of being the cinderella of this year's tournament with an experienced team, a good coach, and physical players who don't make mistakes. They are in a relatively easy bracket in the Southeast, so they have a very real chance of going deep.

I think that Ohio State and Kansas are the best teams in the country. I don't see anyone knocking off Kansas on their side of the bracket. I can see Ohio State getting beat though, especially by Duke. If Duke gets Kyle Irving back at full strength (which doesn't seem likely) they will be a force to contend with. Ultimately though, I see Ohio State and Kansas meeting in the finals -- with a slight lean on Kansas to win.

I disagree with your upset bracket for two reasons:

1) Kansas is the most upsetable 1 seed, look at how they played Michigan and UCLA.

2) I picked Oakland to win over Texas in both my brackets, they're freakishly good and will take it to the final minutes.
