Iowa State

Cyclones fans will roast this mercilessly should they round into form and make a run, but in our eyes they are the most over-seeded team in the tournament at the six-seed in the Midwest. They're riding the relative success of the Big 12 more than their own. The loss of Caleb Grill has been a problem and Iowa State is limping in.

They'll get either Pitt or Mississippi State coming off a First Four victory and riding momentum. Crazier things have happened. Crazier things will happen.
