NCAA Bracket 2015: Midwest Region Predictions, Picks, & Upsets

Kentucky is going to win the Midwest Region, and other spicy hot takes.

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

It time to talk about the best region, the Midwest Region. Why is it the best? Because all other regions of the country are inferior to the region I was born and raised in. Before we get to my predictions and other TAKES, here's a look at this part of the bracket:

#1 Kentucky Wildcats vs. #16 Hampton/Manhattan

#2 Kansas Jayhawks vs. #15 New Mexico State Aggies

#3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. #14 Northeastern Huskies

#4 Maryland Terrapins vs. #13 Valparaiso Crusaders

#5 West Virginia Mountaineers vs. #12 Buffalo Bulls

#6 Butler Bulldogs vs. #11 Texas Longhorns

#7 Wichita State Shockers vs. #10 Indiana Hoosiers

#8 Cincinnati Bearcats vs. #9 Purdue Boilermakers

Who wins the Midwest Region?

Kentucky. I mean, duh.

Who got the best draw?

Kentucky. Not the "Wisconsin is in our bracket WAAAAAAA" outcome many were worried about.

Who got screwed?

Have fun with Kentucky if you get past Cincy there Purdue.

Who was the surprise?

Indiana as a 10 seed.

Who wins the #5 vs. #12 matchup?

Survey says West Virginia.

Who is the region's Upset Lock Of The Week Of The Century?

Indiana, because Tom Crean wants to keep tormenting Hoosier fans everywhere.

Predictions For The Other Regions:

East Region

West Region

South Region
