Did he just say monster upset? I'm pretty sure lots of people knew Gonzaga wouldn't live up to it's #1 seed.

Pretty sure this is further proof he resides in colombus their bracketc just keeps getting easier for them
One of the Witchita St bench players has a huge tat of the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign on his arm. LOL I bet their NCAA compliance department just loves that....
give me a break, I predicted Gonzaga would lose in this round about a month ago
Me too!! Too bad it was supposed to be against Pitt. Woo March Madness!
Wichita State beats Gonzaga.
And they're not Iron Man's secretary?
Not a shocking upset if you really follow college b-ball, but a fun one none the less.
So my West region has Ohio left and that's it. Wow what a dreadful region.
GAWD, if Pitt could have just shown up in the first round... Many had Gonzaga out in this round.
How do you celebrate in Salt Lake? Drinking chocolate milk and playing twister?
twister might be frowned upon in Utah.

next two games are not easy, to be sure, but highly doable.
They still have to beat Iowa State too.
Wichita St.,Miss or Lasalle will be there
Eww...Shockers are my guess, though. I thought they were a good team all season anyway, maybe not Elite 8 good, but at this point it's theirs for the taking (along with the other 2 teams).
As I mentioned often here, most recently in my "Gonzaga? Puh-leeze" comment, Gonzaga was the most overrated team in the tournament. They certainly proved it tonight. Their conference (WCC) consists of Gonzaga, two mediocre teams, and the rest are all tomato cans.
Gonzaga didn't deserve to be #1 and they showed it tonight. The only thing that surprises me is that they lost to a team that is decent, but not anything close to the top half of the Big Ten.
They will still be overrated next year, though. When it comes to the media, old habits die hard.
Illinois beat em by 11
I know this isn't unique to me, but it feels like my bracket has been crushed in most close games. Marquette alone has busted me twice!
Davidson doesn't let them come back they can't victimize me twice and I'm right near the top of my pool.
a bracket against 15 Ohio fans. I have Iowa St beating them and about 12 of the 15 have Ohio winning tomorrow and the entire tourney. I'm currently in 2nd and I have 3 regions with Louisville winning it all. Please Iowa St, do your duty tomorrow and all but guarantee me a payday.
Birthday week for me....ate well all week starting with wednesday night's awesome sushi outing, veal marsala last night, leftover veal marsala and a bloody mary this morning, U-M kicking ass in the tourney
B1G doing well but Wisconsin losing (yay)
ND got their ass kicked in 1st rd and some other Big East teams laid an egg
Zags proved they were over-rated, Kansas looking over-rated
Do you guys think the Final Four could consist of all B1G teams? Could happen, highly improbable but not impossible.
No color commentator wants to be the one to say, "Well, I can't say I'm surprised because Gonzaga is wildly overrated and would have sat in the middle of the standings in the B1G, ACC, Big East, etc..."
So, I can't be upset with the fact that they're calling this a "shocking upset."
Thank God they're out though.
Watching Syracuse/Cal...every time I see Michael Carter Williams I think of the Temple game earlier this year at MSG when the TU fans chanted "Lord and Taylor" or "Loss Prevention" every time he touched the ball.
Makes me laugh every time I see him now.
