The story of my bracket so far is that I chose all the wrong teams for upset points and chose the wrong teams for regular points.

Basically I've failed to pick any upsets correctly.

Well for all of us who massively failed, and for any who didn't, there is a second chance bracket challenge for the Sweet 16...

No reason not to try to win them both. I'm glad espn did a sweet 16 competition this year since many people's bracket's get busted early, but still fun to see if you can do well in two of them.

I should have figured out the Badgers were the Wildcats killers after watching them knock out AZ two years in a row along with Kentucky..and now they knock out Villanova. How far can they go?
