Well, Day 2 was pretty bad. Both NC State and Arizona won, and both were picks I had reversed once I decided to go exclusively with the strength ratings. Worse, however, was the fact that Kansas and Iowa both bit the dust in the first round because I had both of them slotted in as Elite Eight teams. My picks are 23 out of 32 coming out of the first round, but even with every possible success in the second round my best hope is to be 13 of 16 and then to get 6 of 8 in the round after that. On the upside, my Final Four picks are all still intact.
