Tuesday #CardMadness Round 1 Winners & Scores, Round 2 Set

Card Madness LogoRound 1 Day 2 draws to a close and we have our first round complete, our field of 68 whittled to 32, and we are one step closer to crowning an inaugural 2013 Card Madness champion. Today’s outcomes were mostly chalk save for two-double digit upsets sprung by 12-seed Reggie Hodges and 11-seed Rick Majerus, but how we got to the chalk result was anything but expected. #1 overall seed and Emens Entertainment 1 seed David Letterman went back and forth with 16-seed Bridget Bobel most of the day, based on a strong social media showing from #TeamBridget as they have named themselves. 2-seed Jason Whitlock defeated 15 seed Morry Mannies by only 6 percentage points, but as has been pointed out to us, Mannies was woefully underseeded. As we tried to explain, it’s far from an exact science and we’ll keep it in mind for Card Madness 2014.

Largest margin of victory goes to 2-seed Jim Davis, who was able to garner 97% of the vote against Sister Edith Pfau (good for largest margin of victory in round 1 overall) and Scott Halberstadt squeaked out a 51%-49% win over Mark Champion for smallest margin. Much like yesterday, our largest upset was a 12 over a 5 as Reggie Hodges continued his run from the play-in game, defeating 5th seed Bryan Bullington.

Round Two voting will work a little bit differently and will allow for not only more votes, but also the “I can’t get on the web and putz around until I’m out of work” crowd. Voting for Round 2 will open at 8am and will close at 8pm. Whether or not the additional couple hours will make all that much of a difference is debatable, but let it not be said that OTP wasn’t as democratic as possible. Congrats to our round 1 winners, thanks for your vote, and we’ll see you back on Thursday for Card Madness Round 2.

  1. I can’t believe Whitlock won. Morry is awesome. Same goes for Letterman. He isn’t nearly as smokin’ as Bridget Bobel or that other chick she won against.
