Welcome to the Ogle Madness Sweet 16!
In the West Region, we're down to Oklahoma wildlife vs. Oklahoma blondes. When the claws come out, who will be left standing?
(1) Joleen Chaney vs (12) Norman Bear(2) Mountain Lions vs (3) Carrie Underwood
(1) Joleen Chaney
Last Round: Defeated (9) Frontier City Water Delivery Hero 53% (280) to 47% (249)
Joleen Chaney – or as I call her, Heartbreaker 5000 – is a KFOR anchor, watermelon queen, and proud sixth-generation Oklahoman.
(12) Norman Bear
Last Round: Defeated (4) Josh Giddey 59% (309) to 41% (214)
Rest in peace, king.
(2) Mountain Lions
Last Round: Defeated (10) Paw Paw Rod 68% (350) to 32% (165)
If you’re a local media outlet looking for page views, write something about a Mountian Lion sighting. There’s nothing Oklahoma news clickers love more than looking at photos of these apex predators, or even other cats pretending to be them. Here are some tips on what to do if you encounter one.
(3) Carrie Underwood
Last Round: Defeated (6) David Payne 60% (314) to 40% (211)
Although she’s now mostly known for waiting for Sunday Night, it’s been a minute since the former Ogle Madness regular and American Idol champ made the Ogle Madness field. Welcome back.
Come back at noon and we'll have the Midwest bracket rolling!
