ESPN Power 16 Wk 6 reveals again--Jay Bilas: Assclown

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.

This is his poll for this week (top 5 included only):

  1. North Carolina
  2. Florida
  3. Ohio State
  4. UCLA
  5. Pittsburgh
North Carolina, Florida, and Ohio State?  WTF?   Considering last week he had UCLA and Pitt over NC, Florida, and Ohio St, what the hell is he actually thinking?  I mean, since last Thursday, look at what each of these four teams had to do:
  1. NC: Win against then 6-3 High Point.  No offense, but who the hell is High Point?  I actually had to check to see if they were even Div 1, much less a college.
  2. Florida: Guess what?  NOTHING!  THEY HAVEN'T PLAYED A SINGLE GAME SINCE LAST THURSDAY.  Also, not only is Brewer out with mono, but they ALSO have lost Horford with a high ankle sprain.  Yeah,  I wonder who would be the heavy favorite if we redid that UCLA-FL NC today...
  3. Ohio State: Beat then 5-5 Cleveland State, with the help of Oden's return.  A ONE-HANDED ODEN.  How the hell is a one-handed Oden supposed to suddenly make you a Final Four contender at this point?  Talk to me when he actually has two hands.
  4. UCLA: Do I even have to say?  TAMU was #6 BTW for those DSPN execs reading this, because I know you only keep track of the ACC.
But guess what, we are blessed with the inner working's of Bilas's "mind" (emphasis mine): Is this supposed to be some kind of weekly reward system that fluctuates based upon how a team is playing at the time, or is it my rankings of the teams that I really think are the best teams? It is probably a combination of both, but I prefer to term this as a ranking of the teams, in order of how good I think they are. If the best team plays at home against the second best team and wins by one, why should the second best team be dropped several spots? So, I plan on ranking the best teams as I see it, and the games they play will provide me with more evidence to chew upon.

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 ...

And as I said last year, "Obviously.  You are definitely an idiot."
