Picking Contest Results for Week No. 2; Enter Week No. 3

This week's results of games for Division I and Division III were affected by upsets, including losses by two teams favored by 90% of more of people entering. See the details below and on the contest pages for Men's Division I and Men's Division III, which contain links for the weekly results in both alpha order by user name and in ranked order by number of games picked correctly and then number of points assigned in those games.

Above the main table are links to the overall results, also available in alpha or ranked order. We're declaring weekly winners, so feel to enter as many or as few installments as you wish. You can locate your score most easily using the alpha lists, although the rank-ordered listings will show how you stack up versus the field.

Notes

(1) For the overall results, we drop the lowest score for people who enter every week. However, if you get a lower score or miss an installment down the road, the previously dropped score will re-enter the picture.

(2) Starting with Week 6 and continuing to the finish, the tables of overall results include everyone who has entered at least n-2 of the n weeks to date.
