Later today, we'll begin rolling out our Tidbit previews of each team/first-round matchup, but to kick us off, we're gonna look at each region. Here's the Midwest region.
Best Storyline: Is it possible for Joakim Noah to to become less likable?
Worst Storyline: Maryland vs. Davidson in the Schools Lefty Dreisell Once Coached Bowl.
Everybody's Favorite Upset: If Winthrop over Notre Dame is considered an "upset," well, then that one. Otherwise, Davidson over Maryland.
Odd Fact: Old Dominion's coach is named Blaine.
Most Handsome Man: Wisconsin's Kammron Taylor, followed closely by UNLV coach Lon "Unibrow" Kruger.
Most Skipable First-Round Game: Oregon-Miami (Ohio).
And, some predictions from around the Internets:
• Dick Vitale: Florida.
• Jay Bilas: Florida.
• Andy Katz: Florida.
• Stuart Mandel: Florida.
• Gary Parrish: Florida.
• DEADSPIN: Florida. After listening to Joakim Noah after their win yesterday, we have a new villain, however. But this bracket's pretty easy.
Would you wear what Joakim Noah's wearing, if it meant a trip to the Final Four? Let us know your Midwest business ....
