2014 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament Day 2 open thread: Will the first round produce more upsets?

After two first round upsets yesterday, will the first round produce anymore today?

There won't be a whole lot of set up here since we've already given you thousands of words region-by-region throughout the week so I'm literally copying the text of my own thread yesterday (I'm sure that violates somebody's ideals about blogger etiquette somewhere, but you'll have to deal with that).

Just to get everything in one place for you here's a guide to everything we've put together (all of which you can find at our NCAA hub: http://www.swishappeal.com/ncaa).

A few discussion starters:

That's all - enjoy the games and let's hope for more upsets!
