So tonight the tournament officially “kicks off,” even though my feelings about the play-in game are summarized nicely here. Mount St. Mary’s deserves a legitimate seed in the tournament; all the conferences winners do (whether by regular season or conference tourney, that’s a whole different issue), even 20-loss Coppin St. because they won their conference tourney. I’ve always been in favor of the idea that if we HAVE to have a play-in game, why not make it between 2 teams from major conferences who have questionable resumes? Make Arizona and Syracuse battle it out. Anyway, the madness begins tonight at 7 pm EDT on ESPN, so here are some Play-in Hotties:
Ernest Hargett (and a little something for SA)
Unfortunately, Coppin State’s website has teeny pictures of their players, but you can still tell he’s a cutie.
Mount St. Mary’s
Kelly Beidler. I like his smirk. He’s like, “Yeah, I’m hot. Whatcha gonna do about it?”
Josh Schwarz. I like to imagine that if he smiles, he’s pretty cute. I can see his potential.
Sam Atupem. His brother plays on the team too, but clearly Sam got the looks in the family.
