Before the seedings come out:
Who will make it, who won’t.
Who will be the #1 seed?

Things you should remember from last year (2007).
1- Florida defeated Ohio State in the championship game.
2- Florida repeats 2006 victory.
3- Very few upsets. An abnormally high number of favorites won. Typically, you can expect several "Cinderella" stories to make it far in the tournament.

Who got snubbed? Article.

Once the tournament starts
First round: Big upsets (in the first two rounds, a #1-6 seed losing/ low seed winning)
