Cleveland State had all the earmarks of a 13 seed Cinderella:

My advice on bracket building has always been to avoid picking upsets lower than 5v12. However, as I mentioned in an earlier blog, there was only one team among the 11, 12 and 13 seeds that had the statistical stuff to be a Cinderella: that was the Cleveland State Vikings. ... more »

Hey Pete.

Then why didn't you go with the Cleveland State over Wake Forest?

Also, what are your thoughts about how Pittsburgh played? They have to play a lot better to even get passed Oklahoma State...or even to the Finals.

I never advocate picking a 13 in a 4v13 matchup. Yes, upsets happen. But the odds that you'll bust your bracket outweigh the value of getting the one pick right. Pittsburgh played poorly- - and I'm worried about them playing against a high- pressure, up- tempo team. NC versus LSU will be interesting too...especially if there's no Lawson.

How do you feel about Cleveland St over Arizona and Dayton over Kansas?

I was impressed with Dayton...active bodies and high- pressure defense. Completely flustered the Mountaineers. I've been sort of down on Kansas, so that's entirely possible. Cleveland State over Arizona wouldn't qualify as an upset (just one seed position difference), but I like the Wildcats in that one.

i picked cleveland state, but i did not realize they met the stastical data, somehow i missed that post . . . despite that pick, this has been a terrible early tourny for me . . . i only got 23 correct in round one, and now ive lost my first elite 8 team as well on saturday . . . the 8- 9 and 7- 10 matchups killed me
