Sweet 16: Bulltron Regional

We won't bother you with the details of our busy fall and winter, or our existential NOTY crises. OK, we will for a second. We've been doing this for more than a quarter century, in one form or another, and we've always feared the day when a Nohjay or a Nocandy or a Sidebottom just wouldn't do it anymore. During that busy fall and winter, it felt like that day had arrived.

But we're not willing to concede to Father Time just yet. And we apologize profusely for letting this -- ack, last! -- year's tournament slide. And we're ready to accept assistance for 2012. So how about we just say, wake-up call received, Upshake, and we get back to the business of selecting a 2011 Name of the Year?

Where we were? Oh, yes. The Sweet Sixteen. Let's start with the Bulltron Regional. Vote now.

No. 9 Rockwell Bonecutter: Technology executive.
No. 12 Leviticus Payne: University of Cincinnati defensive back.

No. 2 Courvoisier Winetavius Richardson : Armed robbery suspect.

No. 6 Ebenezer Noonoo: Ex-college hooper.
