Checking in on the CougCenter Bracket Challenge standings

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

And just for fun, we look at how the author draft is going. The leader has reversed his fortunes from last year!

One of the tees in the CougCenter store from which the eligible winner can choose.

Two rounds are in the books, with the Sweet 16 tipping off tonight, so now seems like a good time to check in on the standings of the CougCenter Bracket Challenge to see how things are shaping up. Remember, the winner gets a t-shirt from Gameday Depot!*

*Provided you signed up for the contest through the link on the original post. If you didn't sign up for the contest portion through the Facebook applet, then you're not eligible for the prize. But you can still have bragging rights!

Cougs by 20 has a narrow lead, but the column of interest definitely is that far right one -- the possible points. In that respect EZCREW is in fine position.

Looks like Louisville was a popular pick among those who have the potential to dominate this thing. If you're wondering about the authors, I've bolded them in the full standings at the bottom.

Speaking of authors, we have our own side competition -- a tournament draft -- going with each other and with Spokesman-Review beat writer Jacob Thorpe. You can check out those standings here.
