March Madness 2010 Sweet Sixteen Talk

Who do you have winning today in the March Madness 2010 Sweet Sixteen, do you think the upsets will continue? Our bracket like many of yours isn't doing as well as we had hoped but we are in the 83% percent tile of brackets in a large pool, which could be worse. Speaking of worse have you seen what percent tile the "experts" at ESPN are at?  Dick Vitale is at 18.2% and ESPN bracket annalist Joe Lundardi is at 12.6% yikes. So remember next year to keep us in mind if Obama doesn't fill out a bracket, the president is still at 92%, we are feeling better about the advisors he uses.
Back to the Sweet Sixteen games we have Xavier over Kansas State in our bracket and aren't to sure if we still like the pick as K State really is playing great defense. We are going to have faith though that if Kansas can loose to Northern Iowa, Kansas State can easily loose to a solid Xavier team. Syracuse plays Butler today and we think they will have no problem in this game as they have looked sharp. Washington has surprised a lot of people who thought the PAC 10 was as bad as advertised, the Huskies have done well but the Madness will stop against West Virginia.
Can Cornell really beat Kentucky, we absolutely believe in Big Red and if given the chance to fill out our bracket again we would have them beating the Wildcats. We had Cornell originally beating Wisconsin in our bracket but changed it so that Wisconsin would be beating Kentucky, which we thought would happen if they played. We didn't think that Cornell could beat the Wildcats when filling out the bracket but knew they would beat Wisconsin if given the chance due to matchup problems, so we changed everything on Cornell to have them loose before they got to play Wisconsin. After seeing the first two games though Cornell is playing way better than we ever thought possible with the sharp shooting of Wittman leading the way, so look out Kentucky.
