After a hectic and historic round of 64, how's your bracket looking?
For the first time ever, we saw two #2 seeds lose to 15 seeds.
We were a few bad calls away from seeing a #16 seed beat a #1 seed, as Syracuse barely escaped against UNC-Asheville.
Duke, the team that everyone loves to hate, is already gone after a painful loss to Lehigh, whom no one had even heard of before yesterday.
Based on seeding only, we had 10 upsets in the first round, out of 32 games.
What that means is that all of you who worked for hours trying to figure out the perfect bracket... you probably failed.
Out of 3,170,914 total brackets filled out on Yahoo Sports, a grand total of ZERO are still perfect. The two people tied for the lead both have 2 games wrong already, and are guaranteed to get at least one more wrong since they had one of the losing teams winning the 2nd round as well.
The biggest problem was the fact that TWO 2nd seeded teams lost. While there might have been a few people who predicted a Duke loss or a Missouri loss, I think it's safe to say that no one could predict BOTH of them.
In the history of the round of 64, only four 15th seeds had ever won, previous to this year. The most recent was back in 2001.
How's your bracket going so far? Is it full of red pen, or do you still have a decent chance of keeping your Elite 8 intact, at least?
Let us know how you're doing, and which upsets you think might happen in the rest of the tournament.
