  1. Round One –
    #1 Will Leitch – 71% (1138 votes)

    #12 Matt Jones – KentuckySportsBlog 65% (1521 votes)

    Ouch. Somebody better alert the Gawker Media Overlord one of their own might go down…

  2. Pingback: Sports Talk on » Blog Archive » Kentucky Sports Radio needs to get its vote on…..

  3. Out of all the fanbases of American, only one can stand toe-to-toe with the might of the Deadspin readerbase: The Big Blue Nation.

    All it takes is one little “hey, check out this vote” page on Deadspin and Will should get 5000+ votes in an hour. I think BBN could probably muster up around that, given several days of voting.

    Ultimately, this is Will’s match to lose.

  4. Does it make me a bad person for voting against the people I think I can beat in future rounds were I to advance?

  5. this should have never been called a contest to begin with. never ask the big blue nation to vote on something UK related and expect anything other than victory from them. in fact, just hand matt jones and KSR the friggin title.

  6. Matt may be ugly, like, REALY ugly, but we’re UK. We are like the elderly, we come out in droves for the vote. Deadspin readers are too cool to vote.

  7. It makes me smile that one of my voters spelled “really” wrong….and I think I am quite handsome actually……

    But I am not in Will’s league… least as that picture portrays him

  8. I grew up in TN too, but I bleed blue!!!! Don’t worry there are several different styles of “kentucky girls love dick” t-shirts available on the UK campus…

  9. it matters not. matt has borrowed some of rob’s hair gel for the next round. this one is in the bag people

  10. Burnsy, I’ll leave the 7 national titles to speak for themselves.

    As for MJ, he’s a very strong 12 seed and he’s showing it.

  11. If all 75 of us morons who listen to the MOB vote enough maybe we can get Matt to the next round. Of course, how much does it matter when he struggles to get girls when he’s with UK basketball players. Come on.

  13. I feel like a child of divorced parents – our DeadSpin overlord or a voice of the Big Blue Nation? Either choice is good, either choice is bad.

    But wow – that got ugly faster than game night at Hi-Tops.

  14. “(Oh and do it quick….I am getting slaughtered)”

    Famous last words by Matt Jones before the reinforcements blew in from all over WildcatNation.

  15. I feel kinda bad. Will has provided me with about half of my hits to my site (my interview with a porn star is the other half – cough shameless plug cough). Anyway, it’s like watching your father get slaughtered by ninjas and then having to walk away like nothing happened. Unless you think you can take on a pack of wild blue-clad ninja. Then you are a better man (or woman) than I.

  16. First I had to compete with Red Sox Stats Guy and his adorable son, and now I face off against HG and his come-hither eye black. I think I must have angered the seeding committee somehow. Hopefully, the Force will be with me.

  17. God i should have went to Kentucky…look at the fanbase turnout on a freaking HOT DUDE BLOG CONTEST!! These fans are INSANE!!!! And i love it…

  18. @KD I don’t think either of us wants to deal with Matt J in the next round..That dudes a beast. I heard that he consumes the votes of his victims…

  19. If I make it past this round, fellas, I’ll gladly request a matchup with Mr. Kentucky himself and sacrifice myself. But, I’ll need your help to make it past Punter. Vote for me over in the Mid-Atlantic bracket.

  20. ^^i know a guy who’s sister’s boyfriend’s best friend’s uncle logged on to his site and was never heard from again. true story

  21. You put Kentucky in any kind of bracket and it is like catnip to Wildcat fans. You could have had the ugliest man representing Big Blue Nation (although Matt comes close) and they would still come out in droves to vote as if it was the NCAA tournament.

  22. Again, I just lurk here but I’m gonna have to call Shenanigans on the invisible army of Kentucky voters. 3000 votes?

    Sheninigans! Shenoonigans! Shenunnigans!

  23. Are there even that many people in the hills of old Kentucky? (well maybe if you count sheep)

  24. And people wonder why we are considered the best fanbase in the nation.

    Probably wondering because you don’t hear it that often outside of Kentucky.

  25. Great stuff who put Matt Jones as a 12 seed??? Do not underestimate anything involving Kentucky Wildcats…we are everywhere and growing!

    A variation of the Flinstone vitamins Kentucky is “10 billion strong and growing!”
