Did Jinx Utah? college basketball reporter Myron Medcalf has called for Utah to upset Duke in the Sweet Sixteen. It's part of his article with bold predictions for the round of 16, but looking at his previous bold predictions, it may just be the kiss of death. Medcalf incorrectly predicted BYU to the Sweet Sixteen (yes, hold your laughter) and Eastern Washington to upset Georgetown. Now, granted, the prediction were supposed to be bold and have at least some possibility of happening, but... they weren't really even close. Medcalf also predicts Utah as dropping their Elite Eight game to Gonzaga, who would be reaching their first Final Four ever. Gonzaga is a very good program. Gonzaga has a Kryzewski-light head coach in Mark Few (who Utah tried to lure away before it hired his assistant Ray Giacoletti), and this season's team is big, versatile, and plays solid defense. Beating the 'Zags would be about as huge a task as getting by Duke, where as the Bulldogs' Sweet Sixteen opponent UCLA is not exactly, well, UCLA.
