TNIAAM 2020 Beer Bracket: Midwest Region round of 32 voting

Almost all chalk for the most interesting region in the tournament.

On Sunday, we unveiled the 2020 TNIAAM Beer Bracket, starting with the play-in games and nd then first round matchups took place on Monday. Now, we move onto the round of 32.

In the Midwest Region, things were very evenly matched coming in and voting largely fell in line with that. Almost every matchup was close, and despite a lot of chalk, it remained interesting — and likely will be going forward. Top seed Side Project looked impressive in a big round one win, as did 2-seed Funk Factory. Bell’s scored the lone upset in the region (11 over 6), while 3 Floyds pulled off a late win over Founders.

Again in this round, we won’t be going in-depth on each matchup description (we can in the Sweet 16). But you can check out the links provided for each if you’d like to research further. Or you can talk to everyone else in the comments before making your selections.
