Last week's voting was chock full of story lines. Sombrero Bip -- a #13 seed, mind you -- continues his magical run into the Elite Eight with a victory over Reed Johnson and the birds. Also, Terry Crowley's defeat of Walt Weiss means that three of the four #1 seeds have been knocked out of this tourney.

It's already setting up to be a very vintage Elite Eight.

----------------------------

Will the vintage trend continue with the second and final round of Sweet 16 matchups?

Only one way to find out.
