Let's get some darkhorse picks going. We all know who the favorites are, but the fun is when is when the favorite bonks and a darkhorse wins things (Oregon women, Tiernan last year).
I got Syracuse men for the darkhorse pick. With the gap to NAU's 4-5, if one of their 1-3 bonk it, that will hurt them big time.
BYU bonks it because resting guys at Regionals backfires. The Orange are looking good right now.
On the women's side, I'll go with San Fran as a darkhorse because Marie Bouchard is back, baby! But is San Fran really a darkhorse pick? In that case, I'm going with Stanford, because the talent finally comes together in a mid-d sprint to the finish.
