As the Blog Council for the first days of March Madness, we came up with our own bracketology for this week’s posts. Now for our picks for the 2013 NCAA Tournament:
FAN FAVORITE – Jennie Ciotti
This award goes to the person who had the most likes on their post by us, the fans. Congrats Jennie!
CINDERELLA STORY – Caroline Gilbert
The Cinderella Story award goes to the post that we didn’t really know what to expect from the title and subject matter. However, when we read the post, we were impressed with its thoroughness and detail.
BRACKET BUSTER – Megan Cautilli
Megan gets this award for her post on Whole Foods. From its outward appearance, you would not think that Whole Foods misleads consumers or engages in unethical behavior. However, Megan’s post details how Whole Foods may not be everything it is cracked up to be. For her post this week, Megan is the recipient of the Bracket Buster Award.
SCHOLAR-ATHLETE – Mike Muscala
Mike gets this award for being Mike Muscala. Despite this blogger being in Kentucky for the BIG Dance, he still managed to get his blog done on time. He deserves this award for his dedication to BGS and his unwavering fortitude while facing adversity.
DICK VITALE AWARD – Frank Berman
For those that don’t know Dick Vitale, he is the voice of March Madness. He commentates the games and is known for catchphrases such as “baby” and “diaper dandy.” There is no NCAA tournament without Dick Vitale…just like there is no Business/Gov’t/Society without Frank Berman. Congrats Frank!
FINAL FOUR – DJ, Mike L, Jessie, Megan C
Congrats guys, you are going to Atlanta for the Final Four. Your posts have endured buzzer beaters, heartbreakers, and upsets. Your posts were superior to all the others and you have each won your region. You all took different paths to get their too. The subjects of your posts were sports, finance, food, and sex. Next up…Tournament Champ.
TOURNAMENT CHAMP – Jesse Dondero
Congrats Jessie, you get to cut down the nets. As your posts suggests, sex always sells. It sold us too. You had the all-around best post – high quality writing, intriguing subject matter, and engaging style. You took it one game at a time and never took your eyes off the prize. We would love to read your Paper 2 if you pursue this topic…
