Our March Madness predictions: The catastrophe worsens in the women's second round

Duke's Abby Waner, who's from Highlands Ranch, probably didn't enjoy the game against Michigan State.

Oh. My. God. The headline on the first blog about the NCAA men's and women's basketball tournament picks made by my daughter Lora and me -- "Our March Madness Predictions: A Prelude to Humiliation..." -- could hardly have been more prescient. Our 5-3 record last night in the second half of round two for the women was a modest improvement over the previous day's pathetic 4-4 mark, but Michigan State's upset win over Duke was disastrous on an entirely new level. After all, we had the Blue Devils going to the Final Friggin' Four. Add that to our two other misses, precipitated by our unjustified confidence in Tennessee and Notre Dame, and you've got one sad bracket. Peruse an updated version after the jump:
