March Madness indeed

After yesterday’s late upsets (Lehigh over Duke?!? Ohio over Michigan?!? Norfolk State over Missouri?!?), today has so far run true to form, with all the higher seeds winning. Syracuse, Ohio State, Marquette and Wisconsin have moved forward. Hopes for an upset rest on VCU v. Indiana this afternoon.

After Norfolk State beat Missouri yesterday, there were only two perfect brackets (of 6.45 million!) left in ESPN’s Tournament Challenge. Then, when Ohio beat Michigan, there were none. By the time the day was over the best anyone had was a 30 – 2 record of picking the winners correctly.



  1. This is turning into a rather unusual year then. I seem to remember that there was at least one perfect bracket in ESPN’s contest last year. And it is unusual to see the St. Louis Billikens go farther than the Missouri Tigers.
