2010 NOTY: Bulltron Regional, Part 1

It starts with the Georgetown-Princeton of NOTY 1-16 matchups. And it gets better from there.

We begin with the top quarter of the Bulltron Regional, named for Hall of Name inaugural class member and convicted felon Assumption Bulltron.

In the interest of time -- mine -- early voting will proceed the same way as last year. Fill out the first two rounds of your NOTY ballot. Then vote for whoever advances.

No. 1 Nohjay Nimpson: Triple-jumper and biology major at St. Joe's.
No. 16 Lolita Respectnothing: Colorado girls h.s. basketball player and Oglala Sioux.
No. 8 Rich Tanguy: Mid-level healthcare sales executive.
No. 9 Courvoisier Riley: Not-particularly-smart Arkansas robber.

  1. Rich Tanguy sounds like John Boehner's "hotel name"

  2. The Nohjay Nimpson hype is lost on me. Would Nae Narruth get the same love?

  3. Man, Rich Tanguy is getting the shaft on this! His seeding is way too low, and then he has to go up against the odds on favorite in Nohjay Nimpson? Travesty!

  4. @PPP - probably not. But Nae Nott Narruth might.

  5. Nohjay Nimpson vs. Lolita Respectnothing...this one's too close to call.

  6. it doesn't really matter who comes out of the top half here; X'Zavier Bloodsaw is riding his #2 seed all the way to the championship.

  7. Bloodsaw is definitely winning the region, at the very least.

  8. @PPP - I'm with you, did alliteration boost Nohjay to a #1?

  9. Went with Respectnothing, still have no clue about the Nohjay love. I get the "joke", the joke just isn't funny.

  10. How can argue against this?

    "...such as forward Lolita Respectnothing, who dominates in the paint."


    A strong inside game can take you far in the tourney.

  11. I just can't figure out how anyone could not vote for someone named Respectnothing. That's a name of champions.

  12. If Nohjay Nimpson doesn't win this whole thing's a sham

  13. I think Nohjay gets this vote. But like Kansas in the "real" bracket (we all know what the REAL bracket is, and it's right here), I think he's going down earlier than a number one seeding would suggest.

  14. I think Lolita Respectnothing has been completely underseeded as a 16!

    She is definitely worth a top 3 seed. It will be a shame if she doesn't get past the first round.

    She deserves more respect... despite the fact she respects nothing.

  15. I love Nohjay as much as anyone else, but the more I think about it, the sadder I am that she's beating Rich Tanguy. Nohjay's fun fades as OJ Simpson slips out of the public consciousness; Rich Tanguy is timeless.

    When we look back at this bracket in 20 years -- and we will -- will Nohjay have any punch?

    I bet the Nohjay voters are mostly over 30 and the anti-Nohjay crowd is kidlets. If you weren't of a certain age in the mid-nineties, you have no idea how big OJ was.

  17. The thing about Nohjay is that she was born in 1989, five years before the OJ shit hit the fan. I could appreciate the value in the name much more if she was named after him even in light of him nearly decapitating two people, but since she wasn't, I'm just kinda "meh". Maybe her parents were just big "Naked Gun" fans. If that's the case and her full name is Nohjay Nordberg Nimpson, she oughta be the runaway winner of this whole thing.

    I'm also putting waaaaay too much thought into this.

  18. Anyone read Nabokov's masterpiece? How the hell can Lolita Respectnothing be a 16 seed? This should be the first 16 seed to take it all.

    How in God's name is Lolita Respectnothing just a #16 seed? She's not exactly East Tennessee St. going up against Kentucky. Her name is pretty amazing. I can't believe that Nohjay Nimpson has such an overwhelming lead over her either.

    Take everything. Respectnothing.

  20. Rich Tanguy is funny. Nohjay Nimpson is pretty incredible, like something you'd see in a Mad Magazine parody. Lolita Respectnothing is EPIC. I am very, very sad she'll be knocked out so early.
