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are Michael Lazarus from FoxSports, the Bracketographist, CollegeRPI.com, Lunardi's Bracketology (which is slightly outdated), and Sportsline's Gary Parrish.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.

OMG I love that you're spelling "incites" like the Wizznutzz now.

This reeks of begging, and i'm okay with that.

I'm typing this again, because your comment section slapped me around all day yesterday:

Yes, the fellas at GTB are openly pining for VCU, but that is only because we are all Tribe alums and for obvious reasons (such as 300+ yrs of hoops futility) need to root for a quality CAA club. I really was hoping to get an Anthony Grant/Billy Donovan match-up.

Bog Pool? What's the incentive? Can we somehow get some more hibachi posters in the mix? Is this going to be like the WC fantasy challenge, where we got nothing and had to like it?

As a Virginia fan, I'm very much afraid UVa will be the annual 5 seed that loses in the first round.

I wouldn't worry too much, Eric Swensen, there's still a lot of basketball to be played. Just last week, Tech was a 5 against West Virginia as a 12. That's not a fun first round game. Miami's top scorer against UVa was Puerto Rican. As long as you can avoid playing a team with Puerto Ricans, I think you will be all right. The only other matchup scheduled with a Puerto Rican playing is the meeting with Tech at JPJ. Since the game is at JPJ all bets are off.

Seriously, is it going to feature incites or insights? One is harder to do, and thus rarer, than the other. (No, I'm not telling which - don't want to throw off the curve on the Bog Final Exam.)
