Go to House of Sparky to chat ASU football; go to Ralphie Report to talk Colorado football!

It was a bit of a surprise, but Mike MacIntyre easily dispatched of Steve Sarkisian in the first round pretty handily.

Now he moves onto the second round, where he'll have a bit more of a pronounced disadvantage.

#3 Todd Graham, Arizona St. Sun Devils head coach: Graham has come into the Pac-12 and just won a lot of football games. He has been close to unbeatable at home in Tempe and has authored up some explosive offensive performances with ASU. He was Coach of the Year last season and figures to become a fixture in Pac-12 South races as long as he's there.

#11 Mike MacIntyre, Colorado Buffaloes head coach: It’s hard to tell how good MacIntyre is after he ensured the Buffs notched a few non-conference victories. There’s a lot more he has to do before he’s proven enough to be a big-time Pac-12 coach. But on the bright side, the Buffs did look a lot more competitive in stretches with the rest of the conference than they've been in year's past.

Prediction: Graham's stock has never been higher as a college coach. He will be very tough to dispatch, but the MacIntyre fans have come out in full force. Could he snag the biggest upset of the tournament so far?
