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.
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. The cherry on top is @CasualHoya beat every Syracuse blogger to the punch. Pan to @NunesMagician and @HoyaSuxa kicking themselves and cuing up another joke about Georgetown's mascot waffling.
