2010 NOTY: Bulltron Regional, Part 4

Congratulations to LaceDarius Dunn of the Baylor Bears, whom we just watched sleepwalk through a halftime interview on CBS! LaceDarius didn’t have what it takes make the NOTY field of 64 when he was nominated in 2008. But he’s just a game away from the NCAA Final Four. Better than nothing, kid.

As for other remaining NCAA tournament names, we also like LaceDarius's mellifluous teammate Quincy Acy (fellow Bear Tweety Carter's first name is, alas, actually Demond -- pronounced DEE-mond, his player bio helpfully reports); Cam Thoroughman of West Virginia; Shelvin Mack and Avery Jukes of Butler; and Melvin Goins and Skylar McBee of Tennessee, all of whom retain their NOTY eligibility for 2011. Duke, naturally, has no good names on its roster.

Breaking news in the bottom of the Bulltron Regional: No. 7 seed Two Willis has been INVALIDATED. Turns out his birth name is Charles Willis II. Take off your helmet, son. You, over there, you're in. Good luck. You'll need it.

No. 7 : Nu'Keese Richardson: Former Tennessee football wide receiver/attempted robber.
No. 10 Dr. Speedy Nutz: California dentist.
No. 2 X'Zavier Bloodsaw: NAIA Texas College QB. Not a very good team.
No. 15: Daron Populist: LSU guard.

  1. Not understanding the love for Bloodsaw. What about Nutz? SPEEDY Nutz? DOCTOR Speedy Nutz? It gets more awesomer the more you think about it.

  2. Triscuit's Dad, YOU ARE EXACTLY RIGHT. Dr. Speedy Nutz is one of two names on the entire chart that I laugh at every time I see or think about it. DOCTOR Bloodsaw might sway me in this matchup, but Dr. Speedy Nutz! Come ON! It's AMAZING!

    Agree with The Triscuit's Dad. I may just fire my dentist so I can go to Dr. Nutz' practice.

  4. I am just glad that there seems to be an LSU backlash, and their boy this year is getting his butt kicked and will be out in the first round!

    I agree though, DR SPEEDY NUTZ!

  5. I'm not buying that "Speedy" is a birth name and not a nickname. Bloodsaw takes this region because he's clearly a Mortal Kombat character.

  6. According to my bracket, the No. 7 seed in the Bulltron is Two Willis. I think Nu'Keese Richardson was in last year's tournament.

  7. I don't see Dr Nutz anywhere on that link. I call foul.

  8. Rob, perhaps you missed the paragraph in this post wherein it was noted that Two Willis was invalidated.

  9. Speedy Nutz did have a dental license in California. It "expired" in 1988, but it's still in California's searchable records online:

  11. Dr Speedy Nutz was WAY underseeded! This guy is a #3 at worst.

  12. How has former baseball player Rusty Kuntz not been enshrined in the NOTY hall of fame?

  13. the link you gave for Bloodsaw spells his first name X'Zavior (with an o, not an e). not as if that changes things much.

  15. Anonymous: Box score had it wrong. I subbed the link. Now you can read all about Texas College's 92-0 loss!

  16. If Dr. Shasta Keilbasa couldn't do anything last year, I'm not confident in Dr. Speedy Nutz.
