Hey everyone, I am Lee D this is where I will cover all things intramural sports related. Below is a wrap up of week the regular season alongside a preview of Intramural Madness. Stay tuned for the latest stories in the world of WKU Intramural Sports.
As predicted five weeks ago the Hot Shotz roll into the postseason with the number one squad. They come in with the number one ranked offense, which they hope will carry them to the championship. There are two teams that I can see giving them some problems. AOII and ADPi will not be a walk in the park game, just because of the way they play defense. The women’s championship seems to be set, but this is March and anything can happen.
Cash Money Records locked up the number one seed. The defending champs Big Red Ballers have the toughest road, due to the one blemish they had on their record. They are set to take on the number two seed Phi Mu/Pike. If they can pull out a win there in all likely they’ll have a rematch of last year’s CoRec final, against the RECing Balls. Sigma Chi/AOPi will battle the Hill-floppers once more, a team they tied with in the regular season. CoRec bracket play will be fun to watch.
The biggest league of the five kicks off tonight and we will cut the field in half after one day of play as 8 teams will be eliminated. A developing story flourished out of the men’s league, as the eighth seeded Rockets will once again be without their star Zach Weinstein. He is traveling with the WKU basketball team in their NIT matchup against the Trojans of Southern Cal, Go Tops! The number one seed Chasers will battle the last team to get into the tournament, the Longshots and how fitting their name speaks on their chances of winning it all, but once again it is March. The two time defending champs Wavy Inflatable Tubed Men will battle a testy buckets team. The two seed Were too old for this could be on upset alert as they benefited from an easy division. They will battle DPT 2020. Popout GANG and Brackin Bugs will battle one more time for the right to move on.
All the chaos is finally settled as Pike and Sigma Chil Gold racked up the top seeds. Fiji Purple the three seed will also have a rematch from the regular season as they will battle SAE Purple. SigEp Red gets their guard back Logan Dunman as he missed the entire regular season with a broken ankle, they will battle Sigma Chi Blue. The final four in Fraternity is all but set, I don’t see anyone upsetting the top four seeds.
The first ever redemption bracket will feature teams who haven’t won a game, here at intramurals were all about second chances. This bracket will give CoRec and Men’s teams who failed to win a game a chance at a championship. The one seed Fireside Boys and the two seed Tropics enter redemption as the top two respectively. Now I don’t know how you determine whose best of a bunch of winless teams but the committee did, so I won’t worry. All season you hear fraternity teams can’t compete in the men’s league vice versa, well now we will see who’s right.
The Road to a Championship, Bragging rights and more importantly a T-Shirt will not be easy for any one team, now more than ever. We have had a great season. Survive and Advance. Be on the lookout on Twitter (@wkuintramurals) for our game of the week to see if it will feature your team. I LeeD will see you all next week.
