I am from Minnesota and yes, I am a graduate of the University there. And I am upset. I’m upset at the upset of the #5 seeded Golden Gophers at the hands (large hands) of the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders.

It was one of two upsets in the first day of the tournament. It won’t make me feel any better but let’s do the math anyway.

Xavier 76 over Maryland 65.

Middle Tennessee State 81 over Minnesota 72
