Madness/March = Watchabilty Ratio

Well folks, March Madness is in full swing, and it seems that the ratio of Madness per March is higher than ever this year!

So, without further ado, and with no respects paid to your dead brackets, here is the current list of the major upsets (a team with a seed 5 or more spots lower than their opponent winning the game) for the 2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

NC State(8) Defeated Villanova(1) 71-68


Dayton(11) Trounced Providence(6) 66-53


UAB(14) Embarrassed Iowa State(3) 60-59


Georgia State(14) Humiliated Baylor(3) 57-56


UCLA(11) Vanquished SMU(6) 60-59


The Notable Close-Calls:

Lest we forget, there were also quite a few games that could have gone the other way for the higher-seeded teams this year as well.  Let’s take a look, shall we?

Arkansas(5) Survives Wofford(12) 56-53

North Carolina Avoids Harvard(13) 67-65

Notre Dame Holds Off Northeastern 69-65

Who knows what chaos might happen as March Madness continues this year? Not this intrepid reporter.
