NCAA Tournament Second Round Sunday Open Thread

New, comments

After a relatively quiet Friday to close out the first round, the Madness erupted again on Saturday.

No. 11 Washington, No. 10 St Mary's, and No. 9 Northern Iowa each pulled off seeding upsets. No. 6 Tennessee and No. 5 Butler advanced to the Sweet 16 even though their seeds suggest their seasons should be over. And No. 1 Kentucky, No. 2 Kansas State, and No. 3 Baylor close out the first eight entries to the second week of NCAA play.

Another eight teams will join them by day's end. What, your bracket is wrecked? Take a number! Isn't it great?

I don't think we'll see as much craziness today, but I hope to be proven wrong.

I'll take Syracuse, Ohio State, Michigan State, West Virginia, Cornell, Xavier, Texas A&M, and Duke. Who you got?
