After two days, we're halfway done with the first round of Ogle Madness VIII. Here's your daily reminder that you can find the whole bracket here.
The upper half of the Southeast region features some incredibly difficult matchups, including a brutal 4 vs 13 (Q: how high was the committee when they decided to make Christina Fallin a 4 seed?) and a 5 vs 12 matchup featuring the significant others of two Channel 4 meteorologists (kinda says it all about this state, huh?).
(1) Joleen Chaney vs (16) Discriminated White Girl from Ada (8) Jim Gardner vs (9) The Dry Slot (4) Hipster Boo Boo vs (13) Aaron Tuttle (5) Marla Morgan vs (12) Michael (Emily Sutton's fiance)
(1) Joleen Chaney vs (16) Discriminated White Girl from Ada
(1) Joleen Chaney
Who she is: Two-time Ogle Madness runner-up
Strengths: Sneaking her way into viral news stories about people who either smell fire or live on a school bus.
Weaknesses: Does anyone else feel like she's kinda kept a low profile lately? News 9 needs to put her on the anchor desk.
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”.
:( :( :(

(8) Jim Gardner
Who he is: Hot-dogging Channel 9 helicopter pilot
