The UNLV game is the only MWC one being played today. It is a late start but we will be watching the rest of the games and hoping for upsets and general chaos among the brackets. Mine is nearly ruined already now with Louisville losing so I've lost all hope.
Rebels will have a tough game here with Illinois and they having the dreaded 8/9 pairing is always tough. At least they are favored by 2.5 points. Other teams we'll be rooting for: Oakland over Texas and for any other high seed to lose.
