A good start for the mid-majors

Are you believers now, Jim and Billy? (Sorry but these guys deserved to get ripped for their outburst.)

Wichita State soundly defeats a Big East team, proof that Seton Hall probably should have been left out of the field in place of fellow Big East team Cincinnati. UW-Milwaukee makes it two years in a row by beating Oklahoma. They've now knocked off Big East, SEC and Big 12 teams in the past two years. And Pacific nearly makes it three in a row by taking Boston College to double overtime.

There's only one reason CBS doesn't want the little guys in the field. They fear that early round upsets makes the later round matchups less appealing. Here's a Sportsline columnist telling us once again that the high seeds winning is what we all want.

I'll take the early-round upset any time, even if it means we see a rout later. With the parity in college basketball, one of these years we won't.
