Bryant didn't advance by the wide margin other Elite 8 entrants did, but his 25 vote victory was enough to defeat Randy Moss in the Sweet 16. Running backs have prevailed in a number of matchups against wide receivers, will Bryant be able to change that trend?

As it turns out, Jamaal Charles running really fast is really impressive. Or at least impressive enough to knock off No. 1 and No. 5 seeds in consecutive rounds. Charles collected 63 percent of the vote against Santana Moss, advancing easily. Is his run good enough to carry him all the way to the Final Four?
