March Madness Upset Specials

Mar 18, 2009
Perhaps the best thing about the NCAA Basketball Tournament is the Cinderella stories.  Everybody likes to root for David to slay Goliath, unless your favorite team is the Goliath.  As a Syracuse fan I have witnessed my team play Goliath, as they were beaten by #15 seed Richmond in 1991, and David in winning the 2003 National Champion as a #3 seed.
Here’s a look at my 2009 Upset Specials:
