Ogle Madness II: Elite 8, East and Midwest Region

The Elite 8 of Ogle Madness begins this week with the East and Midwest Regional finals.  The East Region was dominated by attractive females, while the Midwest was conquered by elite amateur athletes from the state's premier university.  Previews of the games are below:

East Regional Final:

vs. carrie-underwood

(3) Jessica Schambach vs. (4) Carrie Underwood

Carrie may have pulled off the most surprising upset in the tournament when she demolished Gary England, and really none of her contests have been close.  Because of that, she's probably the favorite in this game, even though she is the 4-seed.  However...I wouldn't count out Jessica.  She has a strong local following and the keys to Clark Matthews heart.  Seriously, you should see the perfectly legal and in no way creepy "Shrine to Schambach" display that he keeps in his garage.

Midwest Regional Final:

(1) Sam Bradford vs. (3) Blake Griffin

It's pretty rare for the Heisman Trophy winner and Wooden Award winner to both go to the same university, but it's even rarer for them to go against each other in an Oklahoma celebrity tournament.  Seriously, if you are a hard core Sooner fan, who do you vote for here?  Normally, I would say that you should vote for the one with the best personality, but that's almost like deciding between watching grass grow or paint dry.  They are both pretty boring.

Anyway, vote after the jump.  If you've lost track of all the Ogle Madness madness, view the updated bracket.
