Yoda, does the higher seed start the TD? My reading comprehension skills are lacking so if I missed it let me know.

Yeah, person on the left (seeds 1 thru 8) start the TDs in the first round.

Hey! What happened to my posts?

A lot of these are great topics. I'm assuming ones not used in round 1 will carry over into the later rounds?

July 10, 2011  11:48 PM ET

Peachy! You're mine!
