Now let's take a look at what happened in the Officiating Regional's opening round. A couple of really close votes, featuring one particularly big upset by another ten seed, but for the most part there was a lot of chalk in this region. Let's see if that trend holds for the second round! Remember, the voting area is up here at the top, so scroll down to review the matchups, then return up here to vote, and also use the Storystream links on the right to vote in the other regionals!
THE OFFICIATING REGIONAL SECOND ROUND
1. The ending to the Duke/Miami football game
8. Some people were real confused as to why Cat Barber was trending
So if you don't like my still pic here is the video. He's down before the ball is out. Review said he wasn't. pic.twitter.com/Jjl6V1oxEM— Jeff Gravley (@jgravleyWRAL) November 1, 2015
TFW you see 'cat barber' trending and you hope there's video of a kitty mauling a pet groomer but instead it's just some basketball dude.— Nien Nunb (@Nien_Nunb) December 17, 2015
A straight chalk matchup here, but sorry, Nien Numb. You should probably worry more about helping the Resistance against the First Order these days than spend anymore time wishing your tweet makes it past this opponent. There's just no way there's going to be an upset here that I can see.
4. Oh yeah, more Frank Beamer face!
5. UNC told recruits they don't expect potential NCAA penalties to affect them
Oh man, what a tough call here. While I thought this was Beamer's strongest entry in the field, based on the number of you that voted for the 5 seed here, I could easily see an upset. We'll see, but I bet this one will be SUPER close.
3. Nobody cares about BC Basketball in Boston
6. Nobody gives Ron Cherry the business!
Asked for cab to Conte Forum.— Andrew Carter (@_andrewcarter) February 9, 2016
"No, no-Conte Forum."
"Where Boston College plays basketball."
Eagles mania here.
A matchup of "nobody" statements, if nothing else. Yet another tough call in this second round, to be honest. Both are excellent choices worthy of moving on to the #goacc Sweet Sixteen, but alas, there can be only one.
2. That's not the US Capitol, ACC
10. Jim Larranaga doing the whip and nae nae
Ok, how have I not seen this GIF of Larrañaga? pic.twitter.com/yJ7LTI71J4— Will Thompson (@thrillis4) November 18, 2015
I'd really like to think that Larranaga could move on to the Sweet 16, but this could be too much to overcome for the Tilde. That's a strong two seed, and I would be stunned if it doesn't move on to the next round.
