After two days of the NCAA basketball tournament, the Tournament Selection Committee ought to be thinking two things:
1. Giving Stanford a bid might have been an error.
2. Other than that, we did a great job.
Okay, Duke was overrated as a #6, and it's telling that nearly everybody called Winthrop's "upset" of Notre Dame. But seriously, two upsets in the first round? (For those of you about to point out that three #9 seeds won: Since 1985, #9 seeds are now 50-42 in the first round. I guess we could consider Kentucky's win an upset.) Tournaments just don't follow form like this.
Are there big upsets ahead in the second round? Well, Louisville gets what is essentially a home game against Texas A&M, so that's a good bet. Wisconsin didn't look terribly impressive in their opener, and could fall to an underrated UNLV. And I don't really see this happening, but I suppose you can't count out Michigan State against UNC. I think Monday, we'll be reading about a fairly surprise-free second round.
