When is an upset an upset?

There have been some upsets -- if that's what you want to call them - in this year's NCAA Tournament. But shockers? Not really.

And I wonder what constitutes an upset anymore? Sure a 10 seed beating a seven seed is called an upset, but is it really an upset?

I mean, VCU beating Duke was no upset. Duke stunk at the end of the season. And Duke being a six seed was a joke to begin with because Duke was a seventh seed in its own conference tournament.

Parity has hit college basketball. Maybe it's because of scholarship limitations or the NBA's underclassmen rules, but parity is here. So only call an upset an upset.
