Ogle Madness II: Midwest Region, Upper Bracket!

12:05 AM EDT on March 11, 2009


First of all, instead of posting our Ogle Madness logo with every post, I thought it would be fun to show pictures of people celebrating Ogle Madness.  Today's picture is of Taylor Griffin, Alex Brown and some former moderately average and/or bad former OU basketball players.  They love Ogle Madness, and are rooting for Blake to go all the way.  If you have a picture you would like to send us of you, your friends or random "celebrities" celebrating Ogle Madness, send them to us at thelostogle at gmail dot com. If you would like to send a t-shirt to Alex Brown, send it to the OU athletic office.

Anyway, today's match-ups come from the top half of the Midwest Region.  They will be played at the Chisholm Trail Museum in Kingfisher.
