So the first half of the first round is finished, so it seems like a good time to close the first-half polls and post the updated bracket. This has been a larger undertaking than I had anticipated, but hopefully everyone is still having fun with it.
As far as the results go, you will see the vote tallies tail off after the Lynyrd Skynyrd-Guided By Voices matchup. We got a big spike in traffic after Robert Pollard put a link on his Facebook (thanks Mr. Pollard, if you’re reading, which you’re not), and those people leaving, plus (I’m guessing) burnout and a slightly irregular schedule explain the drop off.
But it’s time to get excited again. School is out, summer vacation is here, and I’d like to get this tournament finished this century, so the posts are about to pick up.
With all that said, here are the results so far.
