There's a big cluster gathered around the bottom of the standings. Also, a tie for first! If you're like me and you're at the bottom of the standings, don't worry, the points matter more in the later rounds anyway. So let's just hope the major upsets didn't do too many bad things for your bracket.

Bragging Rights

I know everyone who picked the big upsets wants to be recognized for their predictions. Here, your bold choices will be honored.
