In the Sweet 16, we have:
Two 11 seeds
Two 9 seeds
Two 7 seeds
That's pretty insane. And that's without mentioning a 16 seed beating a 1 for the first time ever.

I'm happy to say I correctly predicted Syracuse in the Sweet 16 (Michigan State is WAAAAY overrated; they beat only 3 good teams all season and went 3-4 against top 50 teams -- plus never bet against Jim Boeheim's ability to underperform all season until the tournament) and Loyola-Chicago in the Sweet 16 (in some of my brackets, but at least beating Miami in all brackets). Plus I had Xavier out second round (albeit to Missouri instead, darn you Michael Porter), and I got 9 of the Sweet 16 right (with the potential for 6 of the Elite 8).

I got most of them...

except for UMBC and Texas A&M, and those just destroyed my bracket.

I got Loyola, Syracuse, and Butler for the first round. Anything aside from that is not notable, or I got it wrong.
