From ESPN –
First Round Upsets
The computer loves Utah State (12) to topple Kansas State (5). Perhaps a shaky call — the Aggies’ best win was at St. Mary’s, but that 12-seed probably undersells them.
Round 2 Upsets
First upset pick: Utah State over Wisconsin. Coach with the most letters in his first name wins. Stu, meet Bo.
This happened last year. All the talking heads at ESPN picked Utah State to upset Marquette. (obviously didn’t happen)
It puts a lot of pressure on the team. Of course I feel positively about this team getting a win this year, but I hate when ESPN jumps on my bandwagon. We have great senior leadership with a point guard that adds an element that we severely lacked last year. Athleticism and the ability to penetrate and get to the basket.
It’s amazing how we live and die with Aggie Basketball 1,600 miles away. (at least I know I do)
All I know
It’s going to be a late Thursday night. It doesn’t tip until 9:57 pm. (our time) On TRU TV ????
