THE STORY BREAKS, AND THERE YOU ARE, SCREAMING FOR YOUR LIFE, YOU’RE A SHOUTING STAR, AND ALL THE YEARS, NO ONE KNOWS, JUST HOW HARD YOU WORKED, TO WRITE THAT PROSSSSSSSSSSSSSE.
Introducing the Philly Sports Media Field of 64. 64 of your favorite talk show hosts, talking heads and scriptuals slugging it out to decide who’s number one in your soul. There are four regions - the WIP Region, the 97.5 Region, the TV Region and the Writers Region - with 16 entrants in each fighting for the right to represent their space in the illustrious Final Four.
Seeding was determined as follows: For radio, it pretty much went by current time on air– basically, daytime hosts got the top seeds. For TV, it went by network, with CSN folks getting the higher seeds. The Writers bids were a bit less straightforward. You can pretty much get all the main radio and TV folks into a 16-team region, but for writers it is decidedly more difficult. Lots of controversy will surround the selection committee following this announcement. No bloggers were included.
Games will be played throughout the NCAA Tournament, beginning today, with voting taking place each day and the winners of matches announced the following day and updated on the bracket. This week: 8 games each day and 8 more over the weekend to play the first two rounds.
So without further ado, your Philly Sports Media Field of 64.
