Looks like there are going to be some upsets. Could two #1 seeds lose?

dude - Sorry to hear that!  I know how hard it is when you've got other priorities.  If you find time during the rest of the week, please go ahead and make your picks.  I was going to reorganize the bracket any way because a few other people haven't been able to keep up with it either.

That's how I was yesterday... I felt cheap/dirty for just copy/pasting and moving a couple things around... but it was one of those days that I just couldn't find to research the matchups Frown

Sorry, Beer, but I think I'm done posting picks. I've got homework to do and it's hard to keep up with all you east coasters.
