Hard to say that, even with the upsets, there were many surprises in the first two rounds of the tournament.
  • You can't really count Marquette, Butler, or Florida State as Cinderella teams. Two are from major conferences and the other is one of the top programs in the country.
  • The Big East choked, especially Pittsburgh and Notre Dame. What's new?
  • Ditto Purdue and Texas.
  • BYU is much better than many people (not me) thought, but it's not like they haven't been top ten all year.

Yes, it's weird that Kansas is in a regional with three double-digit seeds and, yes, a lot of the weekend's games came down to the last seconds. But surprising? I have all of my Final Four left. The ones who don't are the ones who believed in Pitt, Notre Dame, and Syracuse. What's surprising to me is that people would do that.
