Bracket Breakdown: Midwest Region

We continue our look at each region. Here's the Midwest region. We're so glad they're calling it "Midwest" again, instead of "Detroit," though "Detroit" would make us think the White Stripes are gonna be there or something.

Best Storyline: Can Bill Self finally make the Final Four? Oh, and will Davidson finally win a tournament game? Ah, and ... man, those freshmen will be fun.


Worst Storyline: How does Wisconsin keep winning when they're so painful to watch?

Everyone's Favorite Upset: Not a ton to choose from here. We get a sense that some folks like Villanova over Clemson.

Odd Fact: If Gonzaga happens to lose in this tournament, they will not, in fact, break down into tears. Unless of course they're on mushrooms, ahem.

Most Handsome Man: Bo Ryan.

Most Skipable First Round Game: UNLV-Kent State.

And, some predictions from around the Internets:

Dick Vitale: Georgetown.
Jay Bilas: Kansas.
Bob Knight: Kansas.
Stuart Mandel: Southern California.
Dennis Dodd: Kansas.
DEADSPIN: Wisconsin. Prepare for some truly boring, but ruthlessly efficient, nights in Detroit.
