I can’t remember such a predictable year.

Every one, two and three seed made it to the sweet sixteen, plus two of the fours and a five! If you like underdogs, the one remaining team is your only hope.

12th-seeded Oregon made it through, but even they were a favorite today. They really made it through because of their first-round upset of Wisconsin, which led them to a game against another (weaker) first-round upset winner.

There were some exciting games today, although the results were ultimately predictable.

* Except for Duke alums, everyone in the country must have been pulling for Central Florida to beat Duke. UCF had the Blue Devils down by three with just 33 seconds on the clock, but it was not to be.

* Tennessee needed overtime to dispose of a pesky Iowa squad.
