From the diaries. -N
As many of you know, many diaries, stories, and comments here have been dedicated to the ass-clowness of Jay Bilas. Somehow, by stroke of luck or possibly being in possession of incriminating photos, this assclown has managed to convince the WWL to renew his contract every year. Of course, it goes without saying that the same DSPN execs also continue to hire Lavin, so that really says a lot about them.
Anyway, as you may or may not know, DSPN puts out their Power 16 poll, which is a composite of their various "experts" (who of course, were all surprised that UCLA had a 2 seed last year, much less make it to the NC game). Also, last year, I started a weekly analysis to hold the various poll voters accountable for handing over their polls and #2 pencils to monkeys (literally, and I don't mean the Koko kind either) to fill out, since UCLA barely made it on the radar screen until nearly halfway through the season. N asked me to do it again this year, but I didn't really see a need to since UCLA was getting the recognition it truly deserved.
Until now, thanks to Jay Bilas, DSPN assclown.
Hey assclown, what phantom games were you watching that made you flip from last week? I'm betting NONE.
Finally, for your viewing pleasure, here's what he had to say last year about the Power 16 (emph mine):I still can't figure out what a Power 16 really is ... is it a projection of which teams will be the best or a reflection of this week's scores? Heck, if there is no projection in it, who needs it? All you have to do is look at records. For me, it is a combination of both schools of thought. I try to consider how good a team really is, balanced with how they have played this particular week -- and I do it all in less than three minutes. That's what I think of polls ...
