I don’t want to say that the first round of the NCAA Tournament was boring- because it most certainly was not, but it was a little heavy in chalk. Most of the teams that were supposed to win, won- and then you had your typical 12 seed and 10 seed wins. (Hello to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and West Virginia Mountaineers)

All of that normality may start to change today with the second round of March Madness ready to get started.

Who is going to the Sweet Sixteen, and who is going home? Although the first round gets everyone excited with all of the games, it’s the second round that really sets up the tone of the tourney. What Cinderella story will come out and make a name for itself?
