New, 19 comments

The matchups only get tougher from here.

It took us a while, but we made it through the first round of the Ultimate Tailgate Bracket. There were buzzer-beaters. Mouths watered. Haters hated. Lovers loved. Feelings were hurt.

As you might expect, chalk kind of carried the day.

Tailgate Bracket Round 2

There were two 5/12 upsets, WatsonTiger is still crying that Oreo Balls weren't one  of ‘em. Tomorrow, we'll get round two crackin' with a regional a day. Since there are still a couple more rounds to go we're going to crank this thing up into overdrive and speed up the voting to 24 hours per contest, so we can have this round wrapped up by the weekend. So if you've got your heart set on one dish, you  might want to be ready to make your case and bring your coalition to try and stack this thing.
