This week is our Sweet 16(+) for Sports SE's Question of the Year Tournament. We saw several "upsets" in the quarterfinal rounds and even a tie. I look forward to this week's matchups!

A few guidelines:

  • One vote per user per matchup (denoted by comment)
  • Votes will be accepted between Mar 13 and Mar 19
  • For any ties, both teams will move onto the next round
  • Short comments to explain your vote are acceptable. For any extended discussion, go into The Clubhouse
