    "Mid Major / under the radar" teams that can/will make a run

    I'm not talking about pulling an upset in a game and then bowing out, getting waxed the next game. What are teams that can and just may make a deep, possible final four run in this years ncaa tourney ?

    A few of my picks would be (in no certain order) .....one common thing all of my choices have is a Great Coach ....

    Wichita State
    San Diego State
    Dayton

    I'm all-in for UD. They've been my secondary team the past few seasons anyway.

    While not mid-major, I will also be in on X and Iowa (for the family in corn country). Sucks not having the Cards in.

    NOBODY wants to play a healthy Wichita State team in March. Those guys have a ton of tourney experience.

    I could see myself getting behind them as well. Hard to think of them as a mid-major these days, though. Glad X finally graduated.

    Valpo. Have a legit NBA player on the roster and a lot of size and athleticism for a mid-major. One of the better defensive teams in the country as well.

    I don't really consider Wichita State or Dayton under the radar teams since they're both top 25...

    Of all the non top 25 teams, Duke has the most talent and usually outnumbers their opponent 8-5 during their games.

    They aren't top 25 this season but calling them "under the radar" is kind of a stretch, don't ya' think ?
