Rocky Top Talk/Swish Appeal bracket challenge update: A tie at the top headed into the Sweet 16

Don't lie: you know you want to see Meighan Simmons and Tennessee against UConn in the National Championship game. You just didn't have the guts to pick it. - Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Our Rocky Top Talk/Swish Appeal bracket challenge has a tie at the top of the leaderboard after two rounds, which should be broken after the Sweet 16.

Let's get right to it: click here to check the leaderboard for our 2014 Rocky Top Talk/Swish Appeal bracket challenge and check out the top five below.

Kudos to our co-leaders thus far, Aurabass Tennessee and mmmjtx. But they won't be co-leaders much longer.

They picked opposite Elite Eight participants in the Stanford region, meaning the tie will definitely have to be broken this weekend. And mmmjtx picked Kentucky to beat Baylor against in the Notre Dame region. But Aurabass went hard on the national championship prediction, picking the Lady Vols to shock the world and go through both UConn and Notre Dame to win another title.

After the top five, there's a group of us tied for sixth. As might be expected, nobody in the top 10 got the entire Sweet 16 right though a few came within two picks of doing so (where are all of our BYU fans at?).

So if you could update your bracket now, what predictions would you make? What were some of your biggest disappointments from your first two rounds of picks (for example, I can't believe I spent as much time as I did looking at stats for #10 Florida State and #7 Iowa State, wrote about it, and still inexplicably got it wrong)? What were your biggest scores?

Revel in your early successes and make your new predictions in the comments below.
