South Region is Up - Projections and Analysis


This is a tough region.  Kansas should slide into the Elite Eight, but only because they get the winner of North Carolina/Villanova in Kansas City.  South Dakota State has been my big upset pick all year because of Nate Wolters; however, I can't pick Michigan to lose in Detroit.  Minnesota could beat UCLA, especially without Jordan Adams.  Georgetown should also make the Elite Eight after getting through Florida Gulf Coast, Oklahoma and then Florida.  Florida is a team that can beat anyone, especially if Eric Murphy plays well; however, they can also lose to anyone as they are 0-6 in 9-point games.  I still see a lot of chalk in this region.
