All CBB All The Time
To reiterate yesterday's news, when I leave the Bog in the next few days, it will become 100 percent college basketball for the next month, featuring incites from college basketball scribes Camille Powell (Georgetown, bad TV), Steve Goff (George Mason, American, futsal), Adam Kilgore (Virginia, Virginia Tech, 7-11 and Waffle Houses), Eric Prisbell (Maryland, bracketologists, bracketology, bracketanica), Marc Carig (GW, Maryland, Nevada) and college editor Matt Rennie (grammar, craft beer, snack foods). I'm supposed to keep mentioning this transition, so that college basketball fans will be ready check back minutely for updates from conference tournament sites and pre-bracket parties and the Final Four (yes, all your favorite teams are going to the Final Four. Congrats.)
In the meantime, the only content idea I have is that hackneyed Tour Through the Brackets. The bracket persons are Michael Lazarus from FoxSports, the Bracketographist, CollegeRPI.com, Lunardi's Bracketology (which is slightly outdated), and Sportsline's Gary Parrish.
Local No. 1 Georgetown: Three seed on Fox, then 3, 3, 3, 3.
Local No. 2 Virginia: Four seed on Fox, then 6, 6, 6, 5.
Local No. 3 Virginia Tech: Six seed on Fox, then 4, 6, 5, 5.
Local No. 4 Maryland: Seven seed on Fox, then 7, 4, 9, 8.
Local No. 5 Old Dominion: Eleven seed on Fox ("Just barely in"), then 11, 9, OUT, OUT.
Local No. 6 VCU: Twelve seed on Fox, then 12, 12, 11, 13.
The point is, we're gonna have loads of local teams playing for weeks, and that's not even counting the sure-to-be-successful conference tournament runs that American, Hampton, Loyola, UMBC, Liberty, Mount St. Mary's and George Washington are getting ready to embark on. Longwood fans, you might be out of luck. Everyone else, check back often.
