DVDTalk Collective Bracket -- Round Two
 
twikoff and juiio present...
A DVDTalk production...
<b>The second annual DVDTalk Collective Bracket ROUND TWO</b>

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

<b>How it works:</b>
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.

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

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

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:

I'm curious why so many are picking Xavier over Miss State.

not alot of good upsets to pick
and miss state got stumbled slightly near the end of the year

twikoff 03-17-04 08:57 AM

ok.. Im totaling them up now
if anyone can get one more set of picks in quickly.. it could settle a tie.. otherwise, Ill be posting the results in just a minute

wildcatlh 03-17-04 08:58 AM

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.

twikoff 03-17-04 09:01 AM

I have them all totaled up.. and Im ready to make the next thread
we have 2 ties.. so preferably Id like to get 1 more person to vote.. next person to vote, can be the tiebreaker :D
otherwise, it will go to the higher seed..

Im going to slowly start on the Round Three thread now..
someone get in a set of votes before I finish and Ill include them

Jeremy517 03-17-04 09:18 AM

Cmon, someone vote and break the two ties.
