NCAA with a DeadOn Twist: East Side Tuesday, March 13, 2007

Posted by LenBiasCocaineSurplus in black people, Bruce Cambell is the tits, comedic tag, Hot chicks, Len Bias Cocaine Surplus, Reasons why I am single.

While most “experts” would have you believe that the fate of the NCAA tourney depends on the skills of the players on the court and the coaches on the sideline and how much money the dean’s pay off the refs to give them the calls I have a different theory.

The NCAA March Madness tourney can be predicted properly simply using the mascot names and the famous alumni and several other factors that will be fed into a computer giving me the proper picks.

This edition. The east side.


1. North Carolina Tar Heels

Famous Alumni- Thomas Fleming, Peter Gammons, Lewis Black, The creator of Disco Duck, Andy Griffith

Mascot Fighting- A tarheel from my research appears to be literally a heel with tar on it. Possibly making the worst basis for a mascot ever unless there is a college using the platypus. I’m looking at you St. John’s College’s Search and Rescue team!

Negative infinity

Tidbit- They have a secret society called “The Order of Gimghoul.” This may mean they have Free Masons backing them up.

2. Georgetown Hoyas

Famous Alumni- As-Sayyid Muhammad Abdullah II bin al-Hussein al Hashimi, King of Jordan … and Patrick Ewing.

Mascot fighting-

The origins of the word “Hoya” defy simple explanation. Over the years, some have claimed it is an Indian word, while those of a legal mind thought it related to the French word oyez, the traditional opening of judicial sessions. Still others held that with Georgetown’s location along a river, Hoya might be an offshoot of the nautical “ahoy”. None of these claims have held water, so to speak.

The official explanation holds that there was a baseball team at Georgetown called the “Stonewalls”. It is suggested that a student, applying Greek and Latin, dubbed the team the “hoia saxa” — hoia is the Greek neuter plural for “what” or “what a”, while saxa is the Latin neuter plural for “rock”. Substituting a “y” for an “i”; “hoya saxa” literally means “what rocks”.”

Someone needs to get North Carolina and Georgetown some help with this naming your teams thing.

Can I go lower than negative infinity?

Tidbit- David Palmer played on their basketball team, Girl Next Door ends in Georgetown, and the Exorcist is filmed there.

9. Michigan State Spartans

Famous Alumni- Do you need anyone other than Bruce Cambell?

Mascot Fighting – A Spartan is only an 8 of10 unless that Spartan is Bruce Cambell. Then you can’t measure its greatness

Tidbit- If you have it you don’t need it. If you need it you don’t have it. If you have it you need more of it. If you have more of it, you don’t need less of it. You need it to get it. And you certainly need it to get more of it. But if you don’t already have any of it to begin with, you can’t get any of it to get started, which means you really have no idea how to get it in the first place, do you? You can share it, sure. You can even stockpile it if you’d like, but you can’t fake it. Wanting it, needing it, wishing for it… The point is if you’ve never had any of it ever, people just seem to know.

So we have the Spartans and the Trojans in the same region? Cool, it’s “Re-enact the Peloponnesian War Week” at the NCAA Tourney:

“Can you feel the magic? No? Then feel the bloodshed! This time, it won’t end with the Peace of Nicias, yo…”

2. Chilltown - Tuesday, March 13, 2007

SML: not to quibble, but the Peloponnesian war was Sparta against Athens. Troy was centuries gone by that point.

4. LenBiasCocaineSurplus - Tuesday, March 13, 2007
