EAST SOUTH MIDWEST WEST ATLANTA -- The Miami Hurricanes and their fans surely thought they deserved 1-seed recognition. After all, Miami became the first team in history to win the ACC regular season and tournament titles and not be handed top-seed honors. As a reward, Jim Larranaga's bunch gets Indiana, a team that reached the top of the national polls multiple times this season. However, in a regional that could open up nicely for the experienced Hurricanes--Marquette (3), Syracuse (4), UNLV (5) and Butler (6) are not exactly daunting tasks--Larranaga has to like his odds to make another Final Four run like he did in 2006. But the Hoosiers are a 1-seed for a reason, as Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller head a bunch plenty talented enough to cut down the nets. So, in a relatively soft region, who comes out on top? Our FOX Sports South college basketball team--Zach Dillard, Jay Clemons and Cory McCartney--convened to talk about Indiana's odds at making its first Final Four run under Tom Crean, as well as other top storylines. Here are the highlights: -- Where are the upsets this tournament? In an East region with plenty of potential for drama, will a Cinderella emerge? -- Indiana was considered the nation's best team multiple times this season, but will the Hoosiers make it to Atlanta to prove their mettle on the biggest stage? -- Is the East the weakest region? Who will challenge Indiana? -- Not too many experts are picking Marquette or Syracuse, too solid Big East teams, to make an Elite Eight run? Could there be a surprise team playing in Washington D.C.?
