Hardest region - (I always view this as the hardest for any of the seeds outside the top 4 in that region) so with that in mind, I'd say Albany.

Easiest region - Spokane.

Best 1st-round game - #7 Cal vs. #10 UVA (Gottlieb vs. Boyle!!)

Best potential 2nd-round - #3 Ohio State vs. #6 LSU

Team better than its seed - #3 Ohio State or #6 Oregon State

Team worse than its seed - #1 Notre Dame

Biggest snub - the SC's. No USC. Poor South Carolina (but IM OK WITH IT!)

Biggest surprise - UConn actually has to play someone tough in the Elite Eight!

Possible Cinderella - Green Bay or NC State.

First 1-seed to lose - Notre Dame (Elite Eight)

Most talent in one region - Albany.

Under-the-radar player - Pivec, Oregon State.

Final Four - UConn, Oregon, Mississippi State, Baylor

Predicted champ (which team over which team) - UConn over Baylor 75-59

Apparently a guy who isn't consistent.

He has ND as the first #1 to lose, but has them and not Louisville in Final Four. Huh?

I think Notre Dame is more likely to lose by the Sweet 16 Round than any of the other No. 1 seeds, but if all of them advance to the Elite Eight I don't think their matchup is nearly as difficult as Louisville's. So hence the different answer to two different questions.

You can see this looking at FiveThirtyEight's round-by-round projections, though their model still has Louisville one percent likelier to lose before the Elite Eight than Notre Dame: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2018-march-madness-predictions/womens/
