Ogle Madness VIII: Play-In Games

11:18 AM EDT on March 11, 2015


Hi all, welcome to Ogle Madness!

So, we decided that with the NCAA tournament starting up next week, this would be a nice and quiet week and that it would be a good time to start Ogle Madness. And then some colossal pieces of absolute human garbage in Norman ruined all that, sending everyone in this state into a frenzy and leaving no one to care about our little celebrity contest.

But we're nothing if not persistent, so today we tip off, rich racist pricks be damned. Here are today's play-in games...

• Rit Mathis vs. Scott from Scott's Motor Cars
• KFOR Social Media Bandit vs. Richard ViralNovaBuzzfeedHall
• Discriminated White Girl From Ada vs. Katie from Edmond
• Mary Fallin's Okie vs. Emily Sutton's Okie

If you haven't seen the bracket yet, be sure to check it out here. Now go vote...

Strengths: Actually has lots of allies in this state.

Weaknesses: "As a white female from Oklahoma, summer is actually one of my least favorite seasons because I’m white... Almost every day I get made fun of about how white I am & people even say things like “if you were tanner you would be prettier” or “if you would tan your white legs would be so distracting”.

:( :( :(
