Ogle Madness IX: East Region (Upper Bracket)


Welcome to the first round of Ogle Madness IX! It's kind of like March Madness, only with 72% more local meteorologists. The days ahead will be full of exciting match-ups and bracket-busting upsets. Maybe this will be the year you finally win your office pool!

You DO have a pool going, right? It's not too late to print off a dozen copies of the bracket and try to bully your co-workers into throwing down some money on this meaningless tournament. If it's like the other Madness bracket tourney your office has going, the winner will probably be someone who has never been to this site before and is just picking the names that sound best, but it's worth a shot.

Here's your morning match-ups. You have 24 hours to vote. The second half of the bracket will be up later this afternoon.
