There's been a great disturbance in the force-of-brackets. As if millions were suddenly thrown in the trash.

Number-eight seed University of Wisconsin came out of nowhere to unseat the top dog 65-62.
College basketball fans gathered on Twitter Saturday to pay their respects for the fallen brackets.

I picked Villanova into the Final Four. My 5 year old picked Wisconsin to win the national championship. This is how March works.
