The East Region doesn't have the feel of a truly powerful region in the 2012 NCAA tournament. Outside of the Syracuse Orange and Ohio State Buckeyes, there isn't a truly dominate and/or consistent team in their quarter of the bracket.
That doesn't mean that the games will be boring. It is, after all, the wildest tournament in all of sports. Several teams are surging at the right time of the season, specifically the Florida State Seminoles and Vanderbilt Commodores.
As I delve into my analysis of the region, you will be made aware of the most powerful team in the East Region, the biggest sleeper pick, best first-round matchup, an underdog team that America will fall in love with, a star player to watch and the smart pick to make the Final Four in New Orleans.
It's time for March Madness!
