Could this be the year when a No. 1 loses to a No. 16?

A No. 16 seed beating a No. 1 in the NCAA Tournament has never been more likely to happen than this week. Upsets happen every year in college basketball, of course, but think of a few specifics from this season: Penn State over Michigan, South Florida over Georgetown, and, yes, TCU over Kansas. Using various metrics, those upsets are comparable to a 16 seed beating a 1.
