Ogle Madness! East Region, Second Round
8:00 PM EDT on March 24, 2008
After two weeks, 32 match-ups and over 9,500 votes, the second round of Ogle Madness gets started today with a slate of games from the East Region. But...before we totally dive into the "Field of 32", lets review some highlights from the first round:
Biggest Upset: (12) Brent Skarky over (5) Dean Blevins, 136-126
Notes: In the NCAA tournament, a 5 beats a 12 almost every year. It holds true in Ogle Madness, too. Also, I'm not sure if this is coincidence or not, but Skarky got a lot of votes on the same day we were getting a bunch of search engine traffic on Sally Kern stuff. I'm just saying...
Closest Game: The Morning Animals over Tony, 132-130
Notes: Tony blew a big first half lead in this one. It is rumored that Nichols Gallardia inspired his legion of plebes and commoners to vote.
Biggest Blowout: Lauren Richardson over Oral Roberts, 236-40
Notes: Nobody thought that the Oral-Richardson battle would be close, but we thought that some of our Tulsa readers may vote for their home town boy. We thought wrong!
Most Surprising Blowout: Rick & Brad over Jack & Ron, 294-91
Notes: Jack and Ron allegedly have the most popular morning show in Oklahoma City. You would have thought that their fans would have been more supportive.
Most Surprisingly Close Game: Mike Beckett over Hinder, 194-146
Notes: This is why anonymity the Internet is great. In Ogle Madness, you can not only support Hinder without being made fun of, but you can also cast a vote for a man who ripped off another man's scrotum. Life sure is great!
Anyway, enough with the nostalgia. Here are the games from the second round of the East Regional. These games will all be played at the Marvel Family Camping Resort in Gore. The winners advance to the the Sweet 16 in Tulsa.
