Looks like Ole' Charlie had quite the game of darts assigning teams to regions. Ohio State got off easy. Iowa got bulletin board material. Bet that our region looks nothing like this bracket come March.
Nothing could be finer than defeating Maryland and South Cockroachland twice during the coming season; followed by slamming LSU, Mulkey and Reese in the title game. It'll be wonderful to not have to receive the Natty trophy from airhead Emmert anymore....
Thank you, Challie for writing the perfect script..... ......beware because Vapid is surely lurking nearby???
It would be fun seeing Duke (Lawson) vs TN in the second round (assuming TN can get past Hawaii).
That's a tough one.....do I actually hope for a Lady Vol win so Duke & Lawson can throttle them?? Well, why not; let's get the Lady Vol fans thinking they're going to win 6 straight and humble them in game 2. GOOD IDEA!!
In the same spirit (nothing else to do) I compared Creme's top 16 to Massey's preseason list. The disagreements between Massey and ESPN are clear. The Portland teams are listed above the Albany teams. The number after each team is their projected Massey ranking to start this coming season.
[PORTLAND 3] UCLA 19
[PORTLAND 4] tOSU 15
[ALBANY 2] UConn 3
[ALBANY 1] LSU 7
Massey Nos, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9,13 are in Albany while Nos. 5, 11, 12, 15, 16, 19, 25 are all in Portland. My speculation is that nothing has changed and Creme's only objective is to create interest, along with ESPN's preference to east coast games due to the time zones. If UConn, NDame, SCar & LSU are playing a double-header ESPN doesn't want the games to start at 10PM and 1AM EDT.
