While there have been eight number 15 seeds that have defeated number 2 teams, with Middle Tennessee’s stunning win over Michigan State in 2016 the most recent, there has never been a 16-1 upset in the history of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, which equates to a record of 0-128 since 1985. Sure, the odds are far from being in their favor, but we should have seen at least one 16 seed win, right? In this short video piece form ESPN and FiveThirtyEight, Jay Williams, Seth Greenberg and more discuss what it will take for an upset of this magnitude to happen, and if we’ll ever see one in our lifetime, let alone this year.
