2016 brackets: Second Round update

As usual, the Second Round was a crazy one! Brackets were busted all over thanks to Michigan State going down to 14-seed Middle Tennessee. In our family pool, it's clear that I won't maintain possession of the trophy this year. Michigan State was my projected winner, so I don't have much hope of repeating my victory from last year.

On the other hand, Grandma and Grandpa Hromada were smart not to put so much hope and confidence in the Big Ten – their champions are still in the hunt. Avery did a much better job on her bracket since Chris explained the seedings to her. She might not finish at the bottom this year!

Here is our first update of the tournament (rankings are in order of ESPN points standing):

23-9 in Second Round

23-9 in Second Round

22-10 in Second Round
