Pablo Torre has done it again.
ESPN senior writer/TV person/sometimes annoying guest host on The Dan Le Batard Show With Stugotz has picked a No. 16 seed to upset a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament every year for the past four years.
Torre has come pretty close to being right once (Gonzaga only beat Southern by six points in 2013; you can view all his previous picks here) but of course, a 16 has never beaten a 1.
Will it happen this year for the first time?
Torre is, once again, calling for it.
His pick this year: West No. 16 seed South Dakota State over West No. 1 seed Gonzaga.
“It’s going to happen this year,” he said.
