NCAA Bracket 2012: 10 Biggest Opening-Round Upsets in NCAA History

It's why we love the underdog.

College basketball maybe more than any sport has a way of leveling the playing field. Because on any given night, the rim could seem a lot smaller than usual. Maybe the humidity in the gym may make the ball a little slick. And every once in a while, there is this one shinning moment when a last-second shot makes us all stand and take notice.

It gives us a chance to meet players like Bryce Drew and a superstar in waiting named Dwayne Wade. We see the great Jim Valvano run across a court to hug someone and the duo of Patrick Ewing and John Thompson embrace.

For those reasons, the postseason in college basketball is, without a doubt, the best show in the nation and for that reason, we love the great upsets.
