NCAA Tournament: 15 Bold Predictions for March Madness

The NCAA Tournament's one and done format not only makes for the most dramatic play of the season but it also sets the stage for bold decisions and choices to determine who advances and who goes home.

One of the boldest tournament decisions in recent memory occurred just last season when Northern Iowa's Ali Farokhmanesh hit the shot heard round the world which ultimately upset the top seeded Kansas Jayhawks.

In honor of Farokhmanesh's bold decision and because the NCAA Tournament is about two weeks away, it seems like the perfect time to make some bold predictions of my own about what will happen in this year's tournament.

These bold predictions will pertain only to what will happen in or as a result of the upcoming NCAA Tournament and they will go out on a limb while maintaining some level of plausibility.

I could make a prediction that a 16 seed will win the tournament, and while it's certainly bold, the chances of that happening are virtually non-existent. Instead, these predictions will be bold but possible which makes them all the more interesting.

Without further delay here are 15 bold predictions for the 2011 NCAA Tournament.
