I'm really looking forward to the USC/Kansas State and Arizona/West Virginia matchups.

I've got two upsets that keep popping into my mind: Temple over Michigan State and Winthrop over Washington State.

So am I...especially USC vs K-State...Mayo, Beasley, and Walker...the 3 that COULD have been Bearcats if the thing wasn't blown up. Throw Downey in there too...

Imagine that team!

I'm sitting at my desk with a tiny TV (MMOD blocked), so it's better than nothing. Georgia looks pretty good so far, but there's no way that the 6 or 7 guys they're going to be able to play can keep it up for 40 minutes. At least, I don't think so. 17-15 UGA.

Ah. One of my buds at Wright Patt is dealing with the same thing today.
