Forget Thursday and Friday. It's Saturday and Sunday that defines March Madness, a two-day stretch where fantasy becomes reality, the college basketball meek snatch an inheritance of roundball earth and those hours of projecting the NCAA Tournament goes straight to Bracket Hell.
A season defined by chaos and uncertainty will reach its apex in the second round, where top seeds walk into an ambush by sleepers lying in wait to shoot down title hopes while establishing a shining moment in the process.
The second round is where under the radar turns into major name recognition (see Curry, Stephen) and where a once nondescript program takes its first step towards breaking bread with the sport's elite (see Gonzaga, 1999). By the time Andy Rooney is warming up in the 60 Minutes bullpen on Sunday night, there will be a top-four school that will begin its focus on spring football.
There are eight possible second round matchups that have the potential for a huge upset. Join us as we take a look at potential games that may make you think twice on selecting your bracket.
