NCAA tournament contests: Standings after two rounds

For once, I don't suck!

The first two rounds of the NCAA tournament are complete, and it's Monday morning, so now seems like a pretty decent time to pass along the standings of our two contests -- the bracket challenge, where in just fewer than 100 of you tried your hands at predicting the results of the tournament, and the CougCenter author draft.
