Half of 2010 Brackets Busted with #1 Overall Kansas Ousted by Northern Iowa and Other Big Upsets

The 2010 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, also known as March Madness, has just flaunted its reputation and showed why it has its nickname.

Overall #1 Kansas Jayhawks just got ousted by the Northern Iowa Panthers. In the ESPN brackets, 42.2% picked Kansas to win it all so their brackets are all but busted.

Sadly, that includes my brackets and President Barack Obama’s Barackets. Obama went from having 1,520 potential points remaining last night to 720 in about 18 hours!

With another 2.2% picking Villanova to go all the way, 1.6% picking Georgetown and 0.3% picking New Mexico. Add together the other teams picked by people to win it all and you’ve basically have half the brackets all but busted since picking the winner is worth 320 points on its own! The only way these brackets can have any chance of winning would be if the other #1 and #2 teams start falling really fast!

And remember, I’m only reporting part way through Day 1 of 2 in the second round!

Congratulations to the University of Northern Iowa Panthers and other teams upsetting so far!

I LOVE THIS TOURNAMENT!!!

Even when my brackets get busted…
