Sweet 16 Open Thread

New, comments
Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Nearly 42% of the entries in our bracket pool picked a champion you will not find in the Sweet 16, with Michigan State and Kentucky being the most popular casualties. The standings are still quite fluid as a result, with three of the top four entries from the first weekend being finding themselves in that boat.

It was one of the most entertaining first-and-second rounds in tournament history, but we are left with just two teams seeded higher than seven and they play each other on Friday. Here's your full schedule for the next two days - if you're following along, as always we invite you to join us in the comments:
