With the second weekend of the tournament featuring both the Sweet 16 and Elite 8, we've brought both polls into one place for your voting pleasure!  Clark Kellogg holds the lead after the first weekend over Charles Barkley and Reggie Miller and Bill Raftery.  Miller and Raftery are departing the television broadcasts (Raft will still be working radio though), so they'll need as many points as they can get from these two votes.  Remember, these are two separate votes, so there are plenty of BP points up for grabs.  This week, with the number of nominees limited, you can vote for up to three quotes in each poll.  For both the Sweet 16 and Elite 8, we'll still award the Top 10 quotes from each round.  Whose going to lead going to New Orleans?  That's for you to decide!
