March 16, 2011

Frump Madness 2011 Bracket ContestHad a nice turn out last year trying to host the brackets ourselves, but this year we’ve decided to use the very user-friendly bracket manager system offered by CBS Sports.  That means you have even less of an excuse for not joining the fun with Frump!

Moreover, like last year, it’s completely free — no entry fee, etc. — and yet you can still win some fantastic prices (as outlined after the jump).

Join the contest using your CBSSports.com account here. Password = FrumpMadness2011

March 16, 2011


WINNING: Ms. Reef Bikini Contest hot ass booty

  • So, like, this year’s Ms. Reef Bikini Contest is shaping up nicely. Shocker, eh? [Uncoached]
  • Albert Pujols semi-naked, on the other hand. Well… [No Guts, No Glory]
  • New Yorkers choose Derek Jeter as the greatest New York athlete ever? WTF [Sharapova’s Thigh]
  • On the opposite end of a somewhat similar spectrum, NBA players crown Stan Van Gundy as the most annoying NBA coach [Last Angry Fan]
  • Ever encountered one of those awesomely tacky wall mirrors typically found in college and/or government housing built in the 70’s? Well, somebody’s found a perfectly good, moral, NCAA Tourney-themed  use for them [Busted Coverage]
  • Speaking of March Madness within the context of outdated spaces, if you happen to be stuck somewhere without convenient internet and/or TV access, here’s Westwood One’s radio announcer schedule for Rounds 1 and 2 [Awful Announcing]
  • For disciples of Ken Pomeroy/KenPom rankings, here’s a nice write-up on making a bracket with the help of things like “advanced metrics” and “adjusted offensive/defensive efficiencies.” [Midwest Sports Fans]
  • Regardless of how poorly your bracket(s) perform this year, however, just remember it could be worse: You could be a 106-year old Chicago Cubs fan [Larry Brown Sports]
  • In completely unrelated news, here’s how Super Mario Brothers would have sounded if Nintendo had used a Foley artist for the sound effects. Oh, and some clips from the Super Mario Brothers live-action film [The Score]

NCAA Tournament of the (Previous) Decade

March 14, 2011


NCAA basketball logoNow that the first of a new decade of newly formated NCAA tournament fields has been set, Frump figured it’s as good a time as any to examine the best of the previous decade.

Some of you may recall Frumpzilla’s Top 25 College Football Programs of the Decade – it was a pretty big hit for us.

This undertaking, while in a similar vein, isn’t necessarily intended as a definitive ranking of select college basketball programs from ‘00/’01 – ‘09/’10. We basically just thought it would be interesting to see how college basketball programs would stack up when plotting out each’s NCAA Tournament performance over the course of a decade.

More than anything, we wanted this to be fun. If nothing else, you might learn a thing or two about NCAA Tournament history from 2000 through 2010 – at least quantitatively — so make the jump to see how the NCAA Tournament of the 2000’s plays out…

NCAA Tournament Bracket Contest: 2nd Round Standings Update

March 21, 2010


Furmp Madness 2nd Round Standings Update

Betsy Eagleson still leads as we hit the break prior to the Sweet 16.  Better still, we’ve been able to confirm that Ms. Eagleson “likes blue,” and is “pretty sure a wildcat could take a jayhawk in a fight.”  Yes, while Betsy’s entry has pretty much been at the top of our contest from the first tip, it wasn’t one of the 51% of brackets that picked Kansas as this year’s NCAA Champion.  She went with Kentucky (beating Kansas in the final).  She has arguably faltered by having Kansas in the Final Four, but then so did 87% of our entries.  More after the jump.  For now, here’s the top 10:

  1. Betsy Eagleson: 80
  2. CEH, Jr.: 78
  3. Brian Krams: 77
  4. Chris Drummond: 76
  5. Ed Hightower: 76
  6. Amelia Hayes: 76
  7. Jared Johnson: 76
  8. Alex Christison: 76
  9. Robert DuPrau: 76
  10. Sarah Otvos: 75
  11. Cameron Frye (tied): 75

Frumpzilla’s First Annual NCAA Tournament Bracket Pool *Prize Update*

March 17, 2010


March Madness 2010

Join Frumpzilla's March Madness 2010 Pool!

It’s that time, Frumpsters. March Frump Madness time, and what better way for you to celebrate than to enter our first annual bracket contest? Best of all, it’s entirely free to enter (seriously, there’s no catch), and you can actually win thousands of dollars* in prizes**!

All you have to do is email us to let us know you want in (that’s frumpmail@gmail.com in case the link doesn’t work for you), and we’ll send you a bracket. Send your completed entry back to us, and that’s it. If you’re savvy enough to already have access to an editable electronic bracket, you can obviously just complete it and attach it to your initial email. Tiebreaker is the total score in the championship game.

We’re using a fairly standard, balanced scoring system (2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 for Round 1 through the Championship game, respectively), and will be posting the updated bracket and standings after each round here at the site. Once all the brackets are in, we’ll also be sending out a file that contains all the entries and their corresponding picks (just to ensure there’s no funny business).

Good luck, Frumpsters! Let us know if you have any questions, and we hope to see you in the pool!

*Taiwanese Dollars

**1st Place: $100 (U.S.) Target gift card. 2nd place: $50 Target gift card. 3rd place: $25 Target gift card. All winners will also get some ‘Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ Dick Towel apparel! Truly frumptastic.

***BIG UPDATE!!*** We’ve gotten our hands on 6 sideline premier tickets(sec. 107 row N seats 1-6) for The Carolina Hurricanes April 8th matchup vs. The Montreal Canadiens!!  The top 3 finishers that can attend the game on the 8th in Raleigh, NC will get a pair!  If you’re out of the area, we’ll just go to the next person in line. (top 3 overall still get above winnings)
