There is a problem with your poll -- you don't list what the mascot is! I mean, I know UMBC are the Retrievers, but does everyone?

Well, there's another issue, we probably need to see a pic of the mascots themselves. We're not talking nicknames, are we?

Not enough local schools are included. Where's American?

Great comments, gang. My responses:

1) I'll put up links to all the nmascots right away. Hopefully that will help.

2) We will pick and choose eight or 16 area teams each week for Bracketized -- just like the NCAAs, not everyone makes the field.

Glad you've found Press Break; please let us know if you have other ideas!

It'd be great to see the JMU Dukes in your brackets.

How many mascots does GW have? I think the photo you link to is the third one I've seen.

We'll definitely include James Madison in Bracketized, Cover Us and the News Feed ...
