DVDTalk Collective Bracket -- Round Two

twikoff and juiio present...
A DVDTalk production...
The second annual DVDTalk Collective Bracket ROUND TWO

Round one is at http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...readid=353137.

How it works:
We'll vote on each game round-by-round. For example, this thread will be for voting on the second-round games. The teams recieving the most votes will advance to the second round. The next thread will be for voting on the second round. In case of a tie, the higher seed will advance.

For example:
If voting in round one is Boston College 33 - Utah 12, Northern Iowa 23 - Georgia Tech 22, then for round two, we will vote on Boston College vs Northern Iowa.

You do not have to vote on every thread to participate. Participate in as many threads as you can/want to.

Here are the estimated times for the rounds
Second round: Now until 10:00 AM (7:00 AM Pacific) Wednesday
Third Round: 10:00 AM (7:00 Pacific) Wednesday - 4:00 PM (1:00 Pacific) Wednesday
Fourth Round: 4:00 PM (1:00 Pacific) Wednesday - 8:00 PM (5:00 Pacific) Wednesday
Fifth Round: 8:00 PM (5:00 Pacific) - 1:00 AM Thursday (10:00 PM Wednesday Pacific)
Sixth Round: 1:00 AM Thursday (10:00 PM Wednesday Pacific) - shortly before game time on Thursday.

We need to finish before the tipoff of the first game on Thursday so that the picks can be entered in the Yahoo contest

Don't be afraid to vote for upsets. We'd like to try to avoid ending up like this, where they only have two "upsets" in the first round and both of them are 9 over 8. However please vote seriously

Wisconsin, Michigan State and Xavier seem to be popular upset picks. Interesting. Here are my votes:

One thing to remember... there seems to always be at least one 10 or below seed in the sweet 16. Don't think that'll change this year.
