#CardMadness Sweet 16 Results, Thurs/Fri Schedule

Card Madness LogoAs the roughly three thousand of you or so who voted noticed, we’ve been whittling the Sweet 16 down to our Elite 8 yesterday and today. We started with 68, and we now have 8 remaining. Some surprises? Most definitely. Two double-digit seeds are one win away from the Final 4, one 9-seed is still in play, and only 3 1-seeds have made it to the final 8. The Emens Regional? Chalk. Charlie and Frog Baby Regionals? A surprise. The Benny Regional? Mass chaos. As we see year in and year out, it’s all about catching fire at just the right time. Our Sweet 16 results…
