Tracking the Locals: Just G’town, Really

thompson-and-ewing.jpgWe’re a quarter of the way through conference play, and fellow Yahoo! “Big Noise” Evans posts the first Big Board of the season, so let’s look at the local teams, shall we?

  • Georgetown: No. 3-seed
  • George Mason (Chris’ alma mater): 13-seed
  • VMI (our Dad was once institutionalized): 14-seed
  • American: 15-seed
  • Maryland: on the bubble
  • Virginia Tech: also on the bubble (before last night)

Of course our team of choice is the Terps, who, despite wins over Michigan State (a 2-seed), Michigan (a 10) and Vermont (a 16), are once again on the outside looking in. That’s what losing at home to Morgan State does for you, I suppose. Still, beat Duke on Saturday and College Park will burn with the heat of a thousand couches they’ll debut on next week’s Board.

Also, in case you’re interested, Evans has nine Big East teams in the field,  seven from the Big Ten, six from the ACC and the Big 12 and five from the Pac-10. No other conference has more than three, not even the CAA.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    Huge nationally televised games for both Maryland and Mason this Saturday. The Terps play Duke at Noon on ESPN, followed by Mason-VCU on ESPN2. It’s gonna be a great afternoon on the couch … which will hopefully be in flames by sunset.

    You mofos still have no love for my alma mater Morgan State, which should do better than a 16th seed if they don’t choke away the championship as they did last year.

    With regard to Morgan State, the Big Board has Hampton coming out of the MEAC with a 16 seed.

    Good for Morgan. Its time for programs like Morgan and Bowie State to get alittle shine. Not going to win national titles, but they still produce winners.
