NCAA Round-up: Big Injury for Syracuse.

Boy, things change in a hurry in March, don't they?

What looked like a possible cake walk to the Final Four for Syracuse suddenly turned sour as center Fab Melo ruled ineligible for the entire NCAA Tournament.

This opens the door for a ton of teams to take advantage. The Big East Defensive Player of the Year is gone, and the Orange are a shaky foul shooting team. That could be the formula for disaster. Of course, it's March, so watch them go out and win the whole damn thing.

Meanwhile, I think the team most likely to make an upset run is Harvard. Tommy Amaker's team is tough and plays smooth, and is the kind of story that March loves. I could see them getting to the Sweet Sixteen.

As for me? I'm pulling for South Florida.
