Nope. Brackets are done and the first round has been decided. The round of 32 and a voting link will be posted later.

Will the Chimp Conference become the Chump Conference? (Yes)

 

Who will be the Cinderella this year? (Not sure who yet... unless Jackie Chan doing his own Stunts is in, then that's my choice)

The Chimp Conference won the prize turkey last year, and are represented in 2017.  Is it as strong of a field?  That's not for us to say.  As far as a Cinderella story goes, there's a couple dark horses to be sure.

That's a shame. I guess my planned candidates including a T-Rex riding a Minibike, a Duckjacked NHL logo thread (the long-awaited successor to Wild Wing on fire), and the Cookie Monster with Diabetes will have to wait until next year B)

I just hope Travis the Drug-Addled Face-Eating Chimp finally got his act together this year to earn a bid.

He's still on probation so he's not eligible for tournament play.

He's really, really sorry for washing his chimpmobile with university water.

The meme's kind of died, so maybe it's the ghost of the ghost of Harambe?

Look at Seabiscuit being the bad ass. Easy there, tough guy. My bracket is Harambe-free. B) 

 

But there are three other brackets so you never know.
