Seth Davis manages to tick off at least one fan base around this time of the year – in 2013, it’s the Syracuse Orange supporters.
Upon hearing that SU would face off against Big Sky champion Montana in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, Davis immediately called the Grizzlies for the upset. That’s right, it was Davis, not noted Syracuse troll Doug Gottlieb who called the Orange getting bounced early.
Cuse fans reacted swiftly on Twitter, bashing Davis for having an agenda. But is he right? Will the Orange be a popular upset pick because of their up-and-down season?
I get the feeling Seth Davis would pick a trained squirrel to beat Syracuse.

Seriously. Seth Davis just needs to shut his mouth. He’s just coming off as stupid now. Montana will not beat Syracuse.

Seth Davis picks Montana over Syracuse. Doug Gottlieb is pissed he didn’t get to pick that one.
