After another round of voting in our 64 Most Annoying People In Sports Media bracket, three of our four 1-seeds remain. Nick Wright, our 16-seed Cinderella who took down Jim Rome, also remains in the hunt.
Danny Kanell, as he predicted below, was ousted by college football foe Paul Finebaum. Deadspin, which, yes, we realize is an entity and not a person, is also surprisingly alive.

The matchups are incredibly strong from here on out.
Here’s a look at the updated bracket. You can vote on each of the eight matchups below:
1. Stephen A. Smith vs. 4. Bill Walton
Two ESPNers who made the Final Four a year ago. Even turkey vultures apparently hate Stephen A. Smith.
2. Dick Vitale vs. 3. Paul Finebaum
Dukie V. vs. PAWWWWWWWWWL.
1. Skip Bayless vs. 4. Keith Olbermann
You’d think Skip is a lock here, but Olbermann has made some news this week that suggests he has a chance.
2. Max Kellerman vs. 3. Dan Le Batard
Kellerman somehow replaced Skip Bayless on First Take and the show didn’t miss a beat in terms of how rough it is to sit through. Everyone has an opinion on Le Batard – and it’s a mixed bag.
13. Deadspin vs. 16. Nick Wright
Not a matchup we predicted we’d ever have to write about. One of them has to move on.
2. Clay Travis vs. 3. Will Cain
Perhaps the toughest one to pick in this round. This could be the championship of the entire bracket if we set it up differently.
1. Colin Cowherd vs. 12. Urban Meyer
Meyer’s show doesn’t debut until August, but he’s still somehow in the Sweet 16. Cowherd is stiff competition though.
2. Jason Whitlock vs. 3. Dan Dakich
Two legit contenders to win the whole thing. Good luck.
