FratBracketRound2 2Click image to enlarge.

Forget March Madness; this is March Fratness. The most fraternal objects, concepts, and actions, all duking it out to see what will reign supreme as 2016’s most frat thing — 100% decided by all of you. After a first round of head-to-heads that was chock-full of upsets, we are now onto the round of 32.

Let’s get to our first region.

Note: Bracket regions are named after the four main frat regions in a purely ceremonial manner. The things listed under them do not necessarily have any specific relationship with that respective frat region.

All polls will be closed on March 24 at 9:00 a.m.

The East Coast Region

#1 Natural Light vs. #9 Patagonia

While #1 Natty cruised to an easy victory over #16 Philanthropy, #9 Patagonia staged a runaway victory over #8 Chick-fil-A. I’m not going to call a 9 seed beating an 8 seed an upset, but the margin of victory (Patagonia took 71% of the vote) was pretty astonishing. Can Fratagonia ride that wave and take down perennial juggernaut Natural Light in the round of 32? This is a frat matchup (fratchup™) to watch.

Which is more frat?

  • #1 Natural Light (73%, 12,786 Votes)
  • #9 Patagonia (27%, 4,643 Votes)

Total Voters: 17,429

#2 Golf vs. #10 Red cups

“Wagon Wheel” is officially dead, and #10 Red cups killed it. In a contest that was never in doubt, everyone’s favorite frat jam has proven that it is no longer a powerhouse. If you have a heart, you’ll pour some out for this homie dead and gone. And, if red cups can’t pull off a major upset and take down 2 seed golf, it looks like we’ll be pouring some out for them as well when the sweet sixteen bracket comes out.

Which is more frat?

  • #2 Golf (62%, 10,326 Votes)
  • #10 Red cups (38%, 6,402 Votes)

Total Voters: 16,728

#3 Embezzlement vs. #11 Intramural sports

14 seed Going stag to formal put up an incredibly honorable fight in its round of 64 matchup against #3 Embezzlement, but, in the end, it just wasn’t enough to upset the 3 seed. IM sports, on the other hand, proved they deserved a higher seed with their handily-won matchup vs. #6 Not paying dues. Call me crazy, but I can easily see the 11 seed pulling this matchup off. Do you believe in Cinderellas?

Which is more frat?

  • #11 Intramural sports (75%, 12,487 Votes)
  • #3 Embezzlement (25%, 4,112 Votes)

Total Voters: 16,599

#4 Cocaine vs. #12 Public urination

Kudos to #12 Public urination for taking down #5 Mopeds. As they progress from speed bumps to key bumps, though, the path gets a whole lot tougher for nature peeing. Luck of the draw did not help out public urination, as cocaine is probably the strongest 4 seed out there. But hey — they pulled off an upset once, they can do it again.

Which is more frat?

  • #4 Cocaine (53%, 8,712 Votes)
  • #12 Public urination (47%, 7,860 Votes)

Total Voters: 16,572
