I love tournament time and always look forward to seeing which lower seeds disprove the talking heads on ESPN and the overall hype associated to the usual suspects in the Big East, ACC, SEC and Big Ten. I think this could be a year with as many as 8-10 mid-majors making the Sweet Sixteen, though I chose just 6. Besides the seven currently ranked mid-majors (Murray State, Gonzaga, UNLV, Temple, Creighton, San Diego State and Wichita State) which team do you think has the best chance of reaching the Sweet Sixteen?

Don't forget Long Beach State. They're both very good and very capable!

To me NC State wasn't a bracketbuster. They were alot better team than they got credit for.

Ohio to me is the only bracketbuster left.

Yeah, NC State isnt a bracket buster...they have been pretty solid all year and have been improving; especially of late. Besides, they play in the ACC--doesnt that make them a non-bracket buster just by membership?
