Out of 32 original names, only two heavyweight cockroaches remain: Mark May and the SEC. Neither need any introduction by now.
Mark May has shown why the selection committee made him a unanimous overall No. 1 seed. Sporting News' Matt Troll was May's first victim, getting deposed 1836-52. Fox Sport's staff troll, Clay Travis, suffered a similar fate in the Sweet 16, losing to May 1639-103. Pat Forde got crushed in the Elite 8, 2185-96. Penn State Cultists garnered the most votes of any May opponent, but were still crushed in the Final 4, 2145-271.
Yes, May has outscored his foes 6105-522. Some might consider May a shoe-in to win the title, but his opponent might be the perfect beast to dethrone him.
The SEC, though now relegated to America's second best conference, has shown it was underseeded by the selection committee. Vampire Bo Ryan was the first to fall, 1240-164. The No. 8 OSU Memorabilia Hawks fell next, 1430-310. The SEC enjoyed another laugher in the Elite 8 over the Miami Flag Truthers, 172-526. The champion of the Michigan Men bracket, Desmond Howard, got clobbered too, 1408-972.
Can the SEC shock the world? Will Ohio State fans give Mark May the pleasure of winning this tournament?
There's only one way to find out.
