Vote in the Sour Sixteen

There is no sweetness in the Red Cardboard Ugstravaganza. But the sourness is immense. We have 8 actual player photos, 7 artist's renderings, and a mascot. The brackets played out mostly chalky, with 10 of the top 16 seeds making the Sour Sixteen. The Cinderella special is the 42-seed Courtright. The Goodwin Rose remains the Vegas favorite.

Voting closes Sunday at noon eastern.

Go Reds.
