Halfway to #CardMadness Sweet 16 with Thursday Winners, Friday Schedule

Card Madness LogoToday marked the first day of round 2, the round where we will whittle our 32 remaining entrants down to the Card Madness Sweet 16. Two significant upsets today, both of which were nowhere near close as 10-seed Chris Miller and 9-seed Chris Taylor upset a 2 and 1 seed respectively. John Worthen becomes the first 1-seed to be bounced, thanks to Chris Taylor, and by a margin of over 50%. Miller sent our first 2-seed packing, as Blaine Bishop was defeated, proving once again the power of social media as both Miller and Taylor harnessed the web to advance. The rest of your results…
