The more things change, the more they stay the same. With the exception of Broncos Country’s rejection of Kurt Warner in the last round, the Final Four this year is nearly identical to last year’s. Cheers to consistency!
Regional champions Terrell Davis, Tony Romo, Brandon Perna, and Adam Schefter look to advance to the Media Madness Championship round. Will Romo’s energy in the booth prove to be enough to unseat Terrell Davis’ repeat run? Will Brandon Perna and his legion of diehard fans take him the distance?
Enough of the preamble, it’s time to vote! Here’s how the bracket stands today.
Voting for this round will be open until Tuesday, March 13th at 5am MT.
