2014 Office Pool Brackets

I've partially updated the men's office pool brackets for this year. The four regions are still set from last years tournament, as well as the asterisk symbols for the play-in games. Once the pairing and regions are announced and finalized, I'll update the brackets with the correct locations and add in the pairings.
