Love the Harvard upset. It screwed my bracket (screwed already before the game anyway) but I love the underdogs getting their time to shine.

Pretty amazing that a school that started in the 1990s went out and knocked off Georgetown yesterday. 

Games that I'm really are looking forward to today;

VCU/Michigan
Arizona/Harvard
Gonzaga/Wichita St

I'd forgotten that the same school (Florida Gulf-Coast) knocked off Miami earlier this year.  That's two #2 seeds beaten this season.  Fellas are legit. 

I'm looking forward to VCU/Mich, Butler/Marquette, and possibly (if it's close) Louisville/Colorado St.  Good contrast there.  Also the Cuse game but that's for fanship reasons.

Yeah, I remember everyone calling that a really bad loss for Miami at the time.

I guess, in retrsopect, it wasn't that bad.

Michigan takes it to VCU.  That was actually a game I was looking forward and thought would be close.  Actually think I had taken VCU in a bracket or two. 

Boy was I wrong.

#1 Gonzaga SHOCKED.

Well, not really shocked here. I always thought they were never going to get past the Elite Eight. A little surprised that it came this early.

Olynyk is going to stay, I believe. Harris is a 2nd round steal at this point.

Has there ever been a #1 seed that people have had less faith in?

Didn't see a lot of brackets have them make even the Elite 8 never mind the Final Four. Can't say I was too surprised by this one.

Can't wait for UNC/Kansas ... two of my favorites going at it.

Harvard got a lot further than most people expected ... the program there is being run extremely well of late.

There was already a thread for this ... you might want to merge.

Agreed. I'm just a little surprised that it came at the hands of a #9. I thought for sure Kansas St. would beat them (KSU got upset too).

Anybody else disappointed in the Harvard loss? (Prolly not, eh?).

Sick ending to the Iowa St/ Ohio St game.

The west bracket is being served to Ohio St on a silver platter right now. No reason why they shouldn't end up in the Final Four.

Also, I changed the name of this thread to the more aptly named "2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament".   The earlier title probably led to the confusion of the multiple threads.
