Who will be first to fall? Homer to 'pen sounds good.

There were no big upsets on day one. The only thing close was Western Ky. over Illinois and we could see that one coming a mile away. Another 12 seed over a 5 could be coming today when Arizona takes on Utah. If a big one doesn't fall today, could it happen Saturday when Maryland meets Memphis?

I'm really starting to like the idea of Homer Bailey starting the season in the bullpen. Preferably in a long to middle relief role. There will be little pressure, he gets a chance to immerse himself in the major league experience, and most importantly, perhaps gets some much needed success at the big-time level.
Bailey was a lost pup last season when he went through the worst stretch of his baseball career. This would be a good way to build him back up.
