Louahvulle vs. Memphis, Pitt vs. UNC

Memphis over 'Vulle in the finals.

Mike is on to something here. The Cards and Memphis can't meet both in the semis and final, however pleasant that would be to their fans. UNC over Louisville.


"During the contest trial, the Coleman team presented evidence of a further 6500 absentees that it felt deserved to be included under the process that had produced the prior 933 [submitted by Franken, rk]. The three judges finally defined what constituted a 'legal' absentee ballot. Countable ballots, for instance, had to contain the signature of the voter, complete registration information, and proper witness credentials.

But the panel only applied the standards going forward, severely reducing the universe of additional basentees the Coleman team could hope to have included. In the end, the three judges allowed about 350 additional absentees to be counted. The panel also did nothing about the hundreds, possibly thousands, of absentees that have already been legally included, yet are now 'illegal' according to the panel's own ex-post definition."

Too little sleep this am. Sorry. I have Louisville falling to the Tigers, and Pitt beating UNC and then losing to Memphis in the finals. I haven't even had a chance to check the scores--I may be shot already.

WKU represented last night. As a resident of Western Kentucky, it is good to see my state and region well-represented, even without our flagship institution.

I was 13 for 16 in day one, which puts me ahead of POTUS by 2.

Oh, Louisville will do fine, I'm sure. No flagship lost. Really. :twisted:

When I say flagship institution, I mean the University of Kentucky.

Heh. Yeah, I know. I just like poking you on the subject.

What is the proportion of Michigan to Michigan State fans? Like in Kentucky, I look at it as 7 to 1 of Kentucky over Louisville.

Remember two things: both schools are in the Big Ten; MSU started out as Michigan Agricultural College and there are a lot of farms in Michigan (MSU devised an indoor real grass system for the Sliverdome's hosting of the World Cup '94). That said, I'll bet that it is just about 50/50 statewide. Urban centers 60/40 to 70/30 favoring UM.

Louisville is not a statewide school and does not have the tradition that UK has. Dennie Crum is the guy who led Louisville to the big time, right?

Yeah, that was Crum. Joe B. Hall and Denny have a statewide daily sports talk that is semi-interesting to listen to. Remember though that Pitino is Louisville's present coach, and Pitino is revered in this state. Tubby won his national championship with a Pitino recruited team. If Pitino would not have left to coach the Celtics, I am sure Lexington would have built statues and named parts of town after, just like do for horses.

But that's Pitino. Here in Detroit, if Larry Brown hadn't left, the Pistons would have either had two more NBA championships, or Brown and 'Sheed would have killed each other and we could have bronzed them.
