2011 tourney could be the maddest dance of all time:

With the Arizona and Butler upsets last night, this year’s tournament has now featured 12 upsets. (Remember: an upset is defined as any game in which a team seeded four or more positions below the favorite springs a surprise.) As the Madometer ... more »

pete, i think your numbers pointed towards a crazy dance this year. and that's exactly what we are gettting. this whole year has been an "outlier" : ) when my wife has arizona over duke in her bracket and is in first place in a 73 bracket pool.

I'm counting 11 upsets so far, what am I missing?

Morehead, Richmond, Marq 2x, VCU 2x, Gonzaga, Butler 2x, Florida St, Arizona

You're right TJ. I circled Richmond twice...neglecting that they beat Morehead State in the second round- - so no upset. I'll note the correction.
