Coming off of a crazy run to win the Big 12 Tournament, South Region three seed Iowa State was an attractive pick to edge out Duke and Gonzaga and make a Final Four run. 96% of brackets on Yahoo and 95% on ESPN had the Cyclones beating 14 seed UAB in the first round, and 15% of Yahoo brackets had the Cyclones making it to the Final Four. There are a lot of disappointed basketball fans after UAB’s dramatic 60-59 win.

Through just two full games, this NCAA Tournament is living up to the billing. The madness is here, everyone.
