Ogle Madness: FINAL FOUR!!!

Here is what we said on March 3rd when we announced Ogle Madness. It's some Pulitzer worthy stuff:

Ogle Madness is our very own gimmicky spin-off of the NCAA March Madness tournament bracket. Basically, we took 65 of Oklahoma's best and brightest "celebrities," and seeded and placed them into four regions. Starting Monday, we will post match-ups and let our readers vote on which celeb they want to advance to the next round. The celeb with the most votes advances, while the loser is sent home. The tournament will continue until the championship game on April 21st, where Oklahoma's top celebrity will be crowned.

Wow. Isn't it kind of impressive that we actually got to this point? When we got the idea for Ogle Madness, we had no clue if people would vote or if we had the discipline to post the match-ups each day. Now 60 "games" and 17,000 votes later we can say it looks like it worked (and it worked despite the valiant attempts by Brent Skarky, some employee at Bob Mill's Furniture, a seductive drunk girl, and Newcastle Brown Ale to bring it down).

Anyway, to today's Final Four games being played at the soon to be renovated Ford Center. Here they are.

(2) Sam Bradford, East Champion, vs (1) Amy McRee, Midwest Champion

(2) Lauren Richardson, South Champion, vs (3) Wayne Coyne, West Champion

For the Final Four, voting will last until 5:00pm Thursday. Vote after the jump!
