March Madness, Round Of 64

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/03/17


So, the first day of March Madness had relatively few upsets, and those upsets were excessively mild according to their seeding. But the second day had some major upsets. Second-seeded and perennial ACC powerhouse Duke got ousted out of the South Regional in its first-round game by 15th-seeded Lehigh. Second-seeded and Big 12 powerhouse Mizzou got ousted out of the West Regional in the first round by Norfolk State. Fourth-seeded and Big 10 co-champion (along with Ohio State and Meatchicken State) Meatchicken got ousted out of the Mid-West Regional in its first round game by Ohio University (where my brother is a tenured professor).

So, how many of you have already had your brackets busted by those 2, 2, 4, losses in the first round?

Link to the brackets and results.

    I never filled out a bracket, but I note, with pride and glee, that the University of Kentucky Wildcats, the number one seed for the entire field, won their first two games, advancing to the “Sweet Sixteen” regional semi-finals.

    I note that an 11th seed, North Carolina State, just eliminated a 3 seed, Georgetown.
