    Almost every year you can guarantee a #12 seed will beat a #5 seed. So far this year you've got two #12 seeds who have won. Why do you think this is? Oregon is from a big conference so them winning isn't as far fetched as a team like Murray State beating Marquette.

    Marquette had lost three of its last four games and was over seeded as a five.
    Murray State has a bad ass guard

    Yeah but it seems every year these are the seeds where you see an upset.

    3 of the 4 #12 seeds won... It's crazy. It's a curse to be a #5 seed.
