Selection Sunday left many teams feeling slighted after stellar seasons heading into March Madness. Unfortunately for the favorites, these teams will have something to prove as the slates are wiped clean come tourney time. The lower seeds as always will be ready to feast.

Week 1 of March Madness can leave even the most confident fans saturating their brackets with tears of defeat.

At the same time, when a No. 14 takes down a No. 3, and you go, "I totally called that!!," you'll still look like a fool if you picked a bracket loaded with upsets, and that turned out to be your one shining moment. It's okay, we've all been there.

Which Cinderella stories will make it past the first chaotic weekend is anyone's guess.
