It's That Time Of Year Again - Tournament Time

Well, BU went 0/3 (0/4 if we're counting women's hockey) in making NCAA collegiate tournaments. This lack of regular season/playoff success has translated into absolute boredom for Jesus and I as we're left watching schools we have no affiliation with/care for on TV in their respective tournaments.

This boredom has led to the creation of a tournament to end all tournaments. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you "The 1st Annual BU Dance Team Tournament:"

Click to enlarge. I suggest you print it out.


Yes, we've done it. We've created a dance team tournament. Now before anyone jumps to conclusions (we still don't have our mat) we want to let you know how this bracket was formed. We are the committee after all, and a more knowledgable one than that of the NCAA.

First we divided the team into two regions: East and West. The members were divided by where they stand during basketball games. In the East region you can see that all the participants stand to the left of the basket (to the East if you look from their POV) while the West stands to the right.

Next we placed the participants with our complicated randomization system:

We knew there would be one bye in each region so the first member to get drawn 3 times automatically was awarded that top position. Once the bye was determined the names were then drawn in order and the bracket was filled in.

And there you have it. The most beautiful looking bracket to ever grace God's green earth.

So now you come in. We ask you, the reader/admirer of the BUDT to vote on who should advance each day. Voting is based on more than just looks though. Please consider the following while choosing who should advance to the next round:

- Dancing abilities
- Spirit
- How well you think she cooks
- Smile
- Skills in a mud wrestling cage fight
- Driving abilities
- Provided bio

We will give you a matchup each day, but we need you to vote. We'll give you some pictures, some info, you know, things you need to vote (really only a picture). Let's be honest people, these girls are all smoking hot, determining a winner isn't going to be easy. No one said it would be, dammit.

The polls will open midnight and run until midnight. Check back to vote on the first matchup in the tournament:

#22 Kaitlyn George-Busconi vs. #37 Kailene Bernard. Damn that's a tough choice.
