    TC! Glad you could make it, darlin’.

  2. Extra P. says:

    OK, no problems voting here. Everything clear cut.

  3. Chris Tomlin's backhand says:

    Time to layeth the smacketh down once again!

  4. tcmcg says:

    Holly! Glad to be here. I was a little thrown off by my return to the NL West, but now that’s settled, let’s get down to business.

  5. Chuck Norris says:

    Who? Matt Jones! Who? Matt Jones!

  6. PrinceUK21 says:

    this tourney is a joke. why even continue. matt jones and KSR has less than an absolute zero chance of losing.

  7. beingsven says:

    I tend to agree with Prince, only b/c KSR has absolutely sucked the fun & life out of the tourney that the Ladies had done such a knock-up job with…

  8. Chuck Norris says:

    Boo freakin whoo Sven!!

  9. Matt J says:

    How did we suck the life out of it? Many, if not most, of the bloggers on here put links up to their site talking about the tournament and asking people to vote. The only difference as I see it, is that we had more people who then actually came and voted. And I am sure the ladies really hated having thousands upon thousands of people who had never seen their site discover it for the first time.

    But then again, this is a “hot blogger” contest, so we should try to be as official and serious about it as possible…..

  10. Wes Horn says:

    Oh yeh, Matt just sucked the life out of this one. Just like MJ sucked the life out of the NBA finals right?? Just like Tiger sucks the life out of the Masters right?? Just like Federer sucks the life out of the US Open right?? I call it utter domination my friends. By presenting it to the Big blue nation he is absolutely ANNIHILATING this competition…and it shall continue…The Big Blue Nation has spoken…

  11. OK, OK, no one suck the life out of anything. And I do think there could be further upsets.

    PrinceUK21 – Why continue to go on? You don’t believe in finishing what has been started?

  12. TKE says:

    GYERO says hello

  13. How can the life be sucked from something that has no life?

  14. Sammy says:

    Seems to be a lot more sucking going on in this bracket, Goddamnit and here I’m stuck in the lowly Campbell division. Oh and ladies, I will use a counter-clockwise swirl.

  15. sheena beaston says:

    this bracket is just not the same without a hearty dose of some dwarven equine

    rip psamp…just like pitt in the tourney, you havent failed to exit early

  16. Dave says:

    Game over.

  17. Xcat7 says:

    Matt, you are killing these people!!!

  18. Chris Tomlin's nose hair says:

    This is unreal.

  19. John From Harlan says:

    I voted over and over, but it eventually quit counting it. I think you are going to win the division. I can’t believe they have Paul Shirley’s Blog on here. He write for ESPN for God’s sake. If we play other divisions, I hope we meet Mr. Shirley in the finals – he has a female’s name.

  20. tcmcg says:

    Wow. This took an abrupt and shocking turn. Phooey.

  21. charles says:

    You cant beat Kentucky basketball fans. You have to be out of your mind.

  22. UKbballinPA says:

    UK bballin! KSR wooo

  23. rgunslinger says:

    Feel the awesome power of the Big Blue Nation!

  24. tcmcg says:

    This round is fixed like my dog.

  25. Will says:

    This round doesn’t have reproductive capabilities? I guess that’s true…

  26. tcmcg says:

    I could’ve probably punctuated that better, for humor’s sake… Rats. Looks like it’s just not my day.

  27. mark says:

    yup, tcmcg, appears obvious to me over the last two rounds that there is some fixing going on from the Joe camp. Not everyone likes to play fair.

  28. PrinceUK21 says:

    i think we need to find a way to get tomlin into the bracket. he’d be the only person that could give MJ a run for his money. we all know all the hair gel in the world couldn’t push rob to a victory

  29. Sooze says:

    tc – looking very tom waits-esque.

  30. tcmcg says:

    A compliment I will cheerfully accept. Thanks! I can talk growly like him, too, if it helps. (Though it looks like the legions of Up For Sports fans are running away with this round.)

  31. J Fizzle says:

    Ladies…, is there such a thing as a hanging chad on PollDaddy?

  32. awfulannouncing says:

    I’d much rather go up against Shirley than Kentucky. And you’re right MJ, this contest must be taken seriously!!!

    Seriously though….I hope to meet Kentucky in the Finals. It would an honor to lose to a State that gives us jokes like this…..

    What do you get when you have 32 Kentuckians on a Message Board?

    A full set of teeth.

    Hey YO!

  33. Hahah, nice one, AA.

    For real, this is just the beginning. 2006 became the year that Kentucky fans Discovered The Internet ™. They like this more than radio call-in shows because everyone gets to post their opinion. And believe me, every Kentucky fan has an opinion.

  34. J-Fizzle – I don’t think so.

    TC – Just remember, you always have this.

  35. J Fizzle says:

    StarterWife, I am still amazed you managed to get *any* work done at Barney’s Beanery, at night none the less. That, my friends, is dedication.

  36. sheena beaston says:

    motion for PSaMP to win the Mr. Irrelevant crown of the hottie blogger bracket

    anyone willing to second?

  37. Concerned Voter says:

    I have been voting and enjoying this contest, but today I think I’ve observed a little more than “chicanery” in getting people to vote. I went to the KentuckySportsRadio website to check it out. While reading comments on his blog regarding this contest, I noted that “donovansucks” (Comment #14) has posted a program for voters to download (imbedded in a KSR program to watch the blog headlines from your desktop). I downloaded the program and tried voting for KSR through the link on the KSR site. I kept clicking on the link to vote, but nothing appeared to happen. I then opened another browser and checked the vote count and discovered that my clicking generated multiple votes for KSR. What’s up??? Looks like an easy way for KSR fans to vote hundereds of times. The comments even refer to this “program”. Not fair!

  38. Chris Tomlin's comb says:

    Chris’s hair gel is awesomely goodness to the touch.

  39. tcmcg says:

    TSW: You make a compelling argument. Moral victories!

  40. Concerned Voter – Please email me –

  41. Looking4#8hopingtochangetoLooking4#9 says:

    I dont get how someone who wasnt in the second round is now in the 3rd round…how does that work???

  42. tcmcg says:

    If you’re referring to me, I’ve been hopping back and forth between the Campbell Conference Region and the NL West, in order to make the math work.

  44. Anonymous says:

    Too funny Concerned Voter … the donovansucks program you reference is a program to tell him when new posts are added to KentuckySportsRadio.

    See …

  45. BIGBLUEinFL says:

    Always a classic when people find that their efforts have failed.

    When found in this predicament, the true loser instantly trys to bring the victor down with him with insults.

    knock these haters off the block Matt! They just don’t get it! ;)


  46. Dick Vitale says:

    It’s really funny when you consider the love/hate relationship Matt has with his site’s fans. On the one hand, most UK fans coming to vote in a hot blogger bracket are annoying and will constantly remind you of how great UK is, no matter the topic they’ll stick it in there. Matt knows how annoying his fans can be, and I’m fairly certain he longs for people to articulate well thought out arguments or interesting, pithy comments that zing … and on the other hand, Matt would be nowhere without his army of redneck support.

    You see? Love/hate.

    It’s even funnier that this was initially supposed to be a vote on “looks,” but clearly, UK fans have turned it into a personal affront on their school spirit.

    And what’s worse is more and more people are being alienated by know-it-all “fans” who think being obnoxious is how to be perceived as being a “winner.”

    I can picture someone typing out “7 national championships …” right now as some sort of dignified reply, but in the end — we all lose.

    Except UK. Go Big Blue.

  47. burnsy says:

    I really am impressed by the UK turnout, but I’m also really surprised some Gator fan hasn’t jumped into this. Then we could all unite and hate that person together.

  48. Michael says:

    UK fans neglect parenting, body maintenance and any type of intellectual pursuit for 11 months out of the year in favor of basketball. Apparently that one other month they spend voting in a hot blogger contest.

  49. talleyrand says:

    Ha ha! Posting as Dick Vitale! As if Dookie V could come up with a post as articulate as that!

  50. orangeandblue says:

    it would be great to see a gator vs. wildcat final for the sec, i mean ladies…, championship

  51. john says:

    all i can say dick vitale is & national championships baby!!

    go cats!

  52. john says:

    all i can say dick vitale is 7 national championships baby!!

    go cats!

  53. Chris Tomlin's armpit says:

    I need more deodorant.

  54. Katman2000 says:

    Kentucky is full of a bunch of dumb, racist, rednecks.
