OK tournament fans (all two of you!) we are getting so much closer to the day we release the 65 Blog Tournament Field. Why yes, I have found 65 local blogs to participate. There will be a play in game, and the winner of that match up will face one of the #1 seeds in the Opening Round of the tournament. A major shake up in the rankings happened when a power house blog lost a key player. That creates an opportunity for an up and comer to score a high seed and make things interesting.
Like I say every time I post these rankings: these are only the top 25 blogs. 65 blogs will make the tournament. As with any tournament, a top 25 blog can fall to its underdog opponent.
Previous Ranking in Parenthesis ( )
Our defending champ stays the course this week. However, there is some jostling in the rankings below. Will Eric’s mojo run out before the Final Four? Stay tuned!
A makeover right before the Tournament? Could this spell doom for the consensus favorite? Perhaps the chip on the Herald’s shoulder will put them over the top this year.
These Bugs are for real. They are keeping pace with the other big fish in the pond. Vegas still likes them to take it all. Why bet against them?
Worry about Rose? If you are one of the blogs she is looking up at in the rankings, you should be. She wants that #1 seed very badly.
More people jumping on Kym’s bandwagon everyday. Can she make a run like she did last year? The odds are good.
Will injuries set Richard back? If he can get healthy by tournament time, he can be an elite blog. The experts are warming up to this guy.
Grumpy? Maybe a little. However, Fred is looking good right now. He can make a huge statement this March.
Tom is right where he wants to be. Top ten and looking for high seed.
Ernie is still Top Ten, but other blogs are on the rise. Can the man hold off the charging new comers?
Picking up steam at just the right time. This blog could be a spoiler.
