March Madness 2012: Second-Round Predictions for the South Region

The following slides contain my picks for the eight matchups in the Round of 64 in the South Region. This region is ridiculously tough, from No. 1 overall Kentucky to 14-seed South Dakota State, which makes for a scary amount of parity in the tournament. But that's what we love about March Madness.

That unpredictability is why I'm picking certain upsets that common sense would cry out against. I have one of the top four seeds going down in the first round in this region, because that's the kind of thing that usually happens in the NCAA Tournament. 

Accordingly, I'll be putting out an updated set of picks every round, rather than picking all of them now, because I'll get some of these wrong. 

To make my picks, I look primarily at the season statistics for each team, then go with my gut for the rest.
