Georgetown was stunned by 15 seed Florida Gulf Coast 78-68, leaving the Hoyas once again searching for answers at this time of year.

I was asked in the elevator after the game if this was the biggest round of 64 upset in NCAA Tournament history. What do you think, especially compared to the other six times a second seed has gone down in their opening contest of the bracket?

Former Princeton player, former Knicks captain, jump shot innovator, broadcaster and Official Greeter for the City of New York Bud Palmer passed away at the age of 91. Palmer had a varied, interesting life. May be all be so lucky.

CBS Sports Network has added Craig Robinson to their studio coverage of the big dance.

Former Penn Quaker Stephen Danley has an interesting piece about scouting in March Madness and how that relates to Harvard and New Mexico, Florida Gulf Coast and how the Quakers used to prepare for Princeton as well.

Biggest upset ever? I'm going to say no, simply because FGCU had already beaten Miami of Florida.

Wish I had considered that when I filled out my bracket.

It is an interesting debate. I'm tempted to give Richmond the nod. There's a case to be made for each for different reasons.

For example, Santa Clara might have the most impressive victory, but they also had a two time NBA MVP on their roster!

Here are other six times this upset has occurred:

2012 Lehigh 75 Duke 70.
2012 Norfolk State 86 Missouri 84.
2001 Hampton 58 Iowa State 57.
1997 Coppin State 78 South Carolina 65.
1993 Santa Clara 64 Arizona 61.
1991Richmond 73 Syracuse 69.
