NCAA Bracket 2011 Predictions: 10 Sleepers That Could Sneak into the Sweet 16

Every year, there are five or six teams that surprise us all and make it past the first round—or even the second on some occasions. And then there is always a team that takes it a step further.

In this slideshow, we will be looking at 10 teams that could sneak up and beat teams that many think they don't match up well with.

These teams are mostly considered underdogs, even in their first-round game, and they all seem to have a fatal flaw that can—and likely will—come back to haunt them at some point in the tournament.

For these teams' fans, most would be ecstatic for one win in this tournament; and, if that happens, they will be expecting more and more from the team as they play their next game. Then, a loss will only devastate a fanbase that was expecting very little in the beginning.

These teams all have the hope that something magical is ahead of them—that they might get hot at the right time and take a run to a championship. These teams have a golden opportunity ahead of them, and we will take a look at why they could move further than anyone is expecting.
