College hoops blogger humor at its self-deprecating best
Reaction around the Twitterverse on Thursday following the NCAA’s announcement of bracketing rules changes for the NCAA tournament provided the general consensus that the new rules should make for a better tournament.
Emerging from the flood of insights, though, came the broadside of the day, when Georgetown blog Casual Hoya uncorked this gem about the Hoyas:
NCAA releases new bracketing guidelines for Dance. Our petition to have single digit seeds avoid playing double digits seeds was ignored.

It’s wonderful social media, a sharp-witted acknowledgment of a team’s past failures in the context of a current news event. In Georgetown’s case, the setbacks infamously include losses to 15-, 11-, 11-, 14- and 10-seeds in the last six seasons. Only in 2009 were they not felled by a double-digit seed, and that’s because they missed the NCAAs altogether.
