Pretty wild first round, wouldn't you say? And yes, I do mean first round. 4 play-in games do not constitute a "round" in my eyes. Go ahead and talk your trash now if you're at the top -- just keep in mind that what you say can and will be used against you in the comments section of a future article after your bracket enters "Total Meltdown Mode".
