First and foremost the topic that is in the front of everyones mind, MARCH MADNESS, and the current leaders of the Intramural Bracket. For the Men’s Division there are 3 competitors who are tied for first with a point possibility of 157. Those individuals are Mitch Herr (Pike), Baker Dodge (SAE), and Cam Lackey (EX). So, congratulations to those guys for having the best bracket so far. As for the Women’s Division, the top 3 leading ladies are Emily Lanman (Phi Mu), Kayla Foster (Kappa Delta), and the IMREC Computer is currently in third.

Now that you know who is leading the 2011 Intramural NCAA Bracket Challenge let’s discuss SPORTSMANSHIP. Many websites define good sportsmanship and bad sportsmanship, I found many of these definitions very elementary. If you don’t know what good sportsmanship is, GOOGLE it @ google.com If you would like to see some bad examples of sportsmanship follow this link. So, please keep respect at a high level as you need a 3.0 to advance into the playoffs. That goes for both soccer and basketball. Participants, one reminder, keep paying close attention to e-mails from imleagues.com and if you have any questions please contact the intramural office at (270) 745-6060.

The  Badminton World Federation President, Kang Young Joong, missed an outstanding outing this past weekend. Doubles teams on the campus of WKU took to the courts of Preston as if it were a fight for their life. These warriors would stop at nothing to win this years doubles tournament. In all of my years of recreational badminton tournaments I had never seen the shuttlecock fly with such fury. Vijayeandra Parthepan & Anoop Rao Paidipally proudly carried home the victory of men’s championship honors. As for the women’s division, Zimple Kurlawala & Soniya Marwaha, demolished every competitor insight. This dynamic duo was untouchable and crowned as champions of the women’s division. These four badminton players will go down in my personal record book of worlds greatest badminton players. Kang Young Joong, you truly missed a heroic battle of bests.

The next sport to take place is the intramural basketball league. The deadline is today, Feb. 7, so be sure to sign up on imleagues.com. The captains meeting will take place tomorrow (4:30 & 7:00) in the multipurpose room on the first floor, remember… NO FOOD AND DRINKS ALLOWED. Games will begin, on Feb. 14, so cancel your valentine’s dinner date and come check out the opening events of the 2011 Intramural Basketball Season. Opening night is actually Feb. 13 but if you need an excuse for the 14th, you can say it’s opening night for intramural basketball. The girls will understand and if they don’t…

What would you say if there was a flag football team averaging 75.5 points a game? What would you say about a team that scored 93 points in a single game? Well… Whatever your answer is, report it to Lambda Chi’s A team. They scored 58 points in their first game against SAE White, and put up 93 points against the KA Billy Goats. These brutal victories are being led by Lambda Chi’s quarterback, Chris Singleton. He can throw deep bombs and is able to avoid the rush and turn it up field for positive yards on the carry. The highly favored Lambda Chi’s have the  quickness and ability to dodge tackles (a.k.a. flag pulls) without penalties and if another fraternity team can’t stop their offense then Lambda Chi will soon be Champions. If you are interested in this high scoring fraternity you can check them out @ 8:00 PM on Sundays.

When the WKU Flag Football Season has ended and the division champions have been crowned, will any of these teams test their skills at a Regional Tournament? For those of you who don’t know, a Regional Tournament is a tournament that consists of many teams from around the country. All of these teams are looking to be a REGIONAL CHAMPION, because when you win this championship you win a stipend trip to the National Championship. Last year’s National Championship took place a day or two before New Year’s in New Orleans. So the question is… How good are the teams who win our WKU divisions? Do they have what it takes to compete in a Regional Tournament? The Battle of the Bluegrass which is here in Bowling Green is being held the weekend of Nov. 19. For more information: click here. There are also tournaments in Florida, Ohio, Mississippi, and many other states. If you have any interest in any regional tournament contact: Brandon MacCallum (270) 745-6060.

Week ONE is in the books, and from a personal stand point it went great. While supervising I only had to eject 5 people, and those 5 people were ejected during two shifts. All of these ejections could have been avoided… Don’t hop/jump/climb the fence. So if you are one of the five people who read my blog, please don’t jump the fence, and tell your friends to NOT jump the fence and that they NEED to read my blog. It’s full of important information…. (which will be in the next paragraphs)

With the second week of flag football starting I must mention some teams to watch out for. OPP is at the top of my list for teams who could possibly make a run at “The Title” . At first glance they don’t look athletic and seem stereotypically feminine, but don’t be fooled, they ARE QUICK and CONFIDENT. If you are in this Open D1 division @ 8:00 on Monday’s, you better be ready, and if your’e not in this division I highly suggest you come and watch.

Now I realize there are a lot of teams that I have NOT seen, but their are two other teams that stand out in my mind. First, Unusual Suspects who play on Monday @ 7:00, this team is dominant and with their deep roster this team is the next potential Co-Rec Champion… please, prove me wrong. The last team I want to talk about is not a single team it’s an organization. And this organization is Sigma Chi and they have 6 flag football teams. Having 6 teams is somewhat unheard of, and with this high number of teams I’m putting my bet on a Sigma Chi team being in “The Run For The Money”  near the end, and if they are NOT there, then Sigma Chi missed the best opportunity.

Vote for who you think will be the CHAMPION….

If you feel there are teams that are better than my selections, let me know… leave your comments.
