Three double-digit seeds in Sweet 16

    The 2021 Sweet 16 field is set and it looks wayyyyyyyy different than my bracket!

    Three teams - 11 seed Syracuse, 12 seed Oregon State, and 15!!! seed Oral Roberts all defied the odds and punched their tickets to the Sweet 16. Oral Roberts becomes only the second 15 seed team to make it to the Sweet 16.

    I wrote Oral Roberts off in round both of the first rounds and the round of 32, so I'm going to withhold any prediction on them moving forward! I guess I'm a huge Big 10 (Illini) fan, and probably should root for Michigan, but I'm putting all my cheering vibes towards Loyola moving forward.

    How's your bracket looking? Is it as completely busted as mine or did you somehow make some of the best guesses in the world?!

    Of the 8 teams in so far I only predicted one 'upset'. That was Syracuse. I'm all in on Oral Roberts now. They just have to pass Arkansas and Baylor to get into the Final Four, no biggie.

    Same here! I'm now super curious to see what happens with Oral Roberts. If they win the tournament being as high of a seed as they were it's going to cause a big stir. That's what makes these tournaments so great. I really don't enjoy it always being a No.1 or No.2 seed winning so often.
