Spartans lose...brackets busted

Michigan State was stunned by Louisville and the Spartans took many brackets with them. 
Nearly everyone in our contest this year had MSU in the Final Four, 15 of them had the Spartans winning the championship. It's pretty likely, those who had them winning are done. 
I have checked some of the remaining brackets and there are a couple that have Florida and Louisville in the Final Four. 
Drew Brining and Martin Baker are currently tied for the lead, but both had MSU winning the championship. 
Rob Atwood is in fourth, but has Florida making his Final Four, along with Kentucky, Ohio State and Kansas. 
Todd Schave is tied for 10th, but has Louisville, Kentucky, Ohio State and Kanas in the Final Four.
Others that are still in the hunt to score 90 or more points are: John Thorpe, Brad Susalla, Chad Wingert and Paul Adams.

Day 2 leaders Brandon Deacons and Scott Buchman are third with 47 points. Deacons, though, has lost two of his Final Four. 
Sports editor Paul Adams is having one of his better brackets in years, tied for 14th, with 43 point
