NCAA Bracket Predictions, Sweet 16: Are There Upsets In The Making?

The 2012 NCAA Tournament has entered the Sweet 16, which begins play on Thursday evening. We'll have two No. 1 seeds in action against two No. 4 seeds to kick off the action while the late games feature a No. 2 seed, a No. 3 seed, a No. 6 seed and a No. 7 seed. Boston and Phoenix will be rocking on Thursday night with high drama.

Let's predict the winners based on the highest total of the numerical value of each team's nickname (A=1, B=2 ... Z=26).
