Can't call Cal a surprise as many of us projected them as a Top 20 team preseason. I'll go with UCF as the biggest surprise (most thought they'd be improved, but not Top 30 caliber), and a tie between UCLA and TCU as biggest disappointments (vs. preseason expectations).

WEG -- Not a bad call at all on UCF ... I think to be fair to TCU, it had some serious injuries in the postseason that were pretty much impossible to overcome.

I did not even know who Dallas Baptist was before this season. I would say they were the biggest surprise.

I thought LSU would make more noise than they did. I know they were young and played better as the season progressed, but for them not to make the regionals had to be a huge disappointment.

Dallas Baptist has been a top 35 - 50 calber team for the past 3-4 years, and many of us would argue that the team a couple year's back was far better than this year's squad. Highly potent offense. The problem is that they are an independent and, consequently, though they play a tough mid-week schedule against most of the elite teams in Texas, their weekend competition is extremely weak.
