Round 2 SG Madness 2018: 1st heat
Round 2, let's goooooooo
Welcome to Round 2 of SG Madness!
Thanks to UMBC (that’s the University of Maryland-Baltimore County) upsetting number-one seed Virginia on Friday night, there is no longer a perfect bracket anywhere out there. Of the tens of millions of brackets being tracked by NCAA.com, not one of them is left pristine.
While fewer folks may be keeping score on SG Madness, we’d bet there are no remaining intact brackets. Kanye over Zefron? Chris Paul besting Jonah Hill? You guys are keeping us on our toes, and honestly, we like it.
Things will get tougher this round, so get ready to put your thinking caps on. Remember: Voting for these perennially best dressed men is simple: pick the most stylish guy by clicking on their name in the match up–no log-in required.
So, who ya got moving onto the Style GF Sweet Sixteen?
Zac Efron vs. Sterling K. Brown
You voted the former Disney child star past Kanye pretty definitively in Round 1. We’ll assume you preferred his suits and suit separates to Yeezy’s sweats, but this time, he’s met his match. In…
Sterling K. Brown
Brown also excels at “dressed up,” so we’re curious who you’re going to vote through to the SG Sweet Sixteen. There can only be one! (And, y’know, 31 more…)
Lebron James vs. Idris Elba
Lebron, Lebron, Lebron. You whizzed by The Crown‘s Matt Smith in Round 1, and now it’s time to face your next contender. We have a feeling you’re not going to like this…
Because that contender is last year’s second-place finisher, Idris Elba. As you can see from the pics above, both have a style that swings comfortably from suiting to laid-back street style, so this is gonna be a toughie.
Joel Edgerton vs. Sebastian Stan
Look, are we a little bitter that Hamilton fans didn’t put up a little more of a fight for “Most Improved” Lin-Manuel Miranda? Sure, but ~ahem~ just you wait. Because the Red Sparrow star won’t have such an easy go of it this round, as he has a formidable foe in…
The Avengers‘ Bucky Barnes blew away the higher-seeded Chance the Rapper in one of a few surprising upsets in Round 1. So, whose movie star tough guy’s style will reign supreme in this face-off?
Drake vs. Chadwick Boseman
We’d be surprised if Drake said this was “God’s Plan” because in Round 2, Champagne Papi finds himself up against…
No surprise here. Chadwick Boseman made quite an impression in the recent Black Panther press tour, helping him best John Boyega in the first round. Our pal Ashley Weston works with Boseman, and we’ve gotta give her snaps (do people still give snaps?) for the creative lewks he showed up wearing on the red—err, blue and purple—carpet.
WHEN DID YOUR BRACKET FIRST GO BUST?
