CBS is broadcasting the 2012 NCAA tournament and has a number of experts weighing in on the event with helpful opinions and bracket picks.
If you have not seen the bracket or need to print one, you can get it right here.
Their analysts generally do a good job of filling out brackets and mostly make sensible picks. However, this is March Madness and upsets and crazy things happen.
Let’s take a look at some expert picks that will be proven wrong during the tournament.
All Expert Brackets Can Be Found Here.
Dodds has a solid bracket, until you get to the Midwest region.
He went ahead and put Creighton over UNC in the third round and then has the Bluejays beating a play-in team in the Sweet 16.
After that, he believes the Bluejays will meet N.C. State in the Elite Eight and survive for a trip to the Final Four against Syracuse.
As mentioned previously, this is the Big Dance and Cinderella stories are lurking around every corner, but this is simply too far fetched.
Having a No. 11 play a No. 8 in the Sweet 16 is wild and rarely happens. At least one of the better teams in the region will break through and make it that far.
Dodd’s courage is admirable but reckless.
Goodman is the opposite of Dodd and created an extremely conservative bracket. He has three No. 1 seeds in the Final Four and UNC facing Kentucky in the championship with the Wildcats winning.
There’s definitely a good chance for Kentucky to win it all, but the Wildcats will likely be more than one team outside a No. 2 seed advancing to the Elite Eight.
You can be assured there will be a few low seeds making a run during March Madness.
