Busted Coverage Sets SBOTY Field

Posted in Linkage by ryedog on December 20, 2008

64 sports blogs will enter, but only one will emerge victorious…

Busted Coverage has announced the field for its annual Sports Blogger of the Year Tournament—a fierce battle between the net’s foremost sources for sports news, humor, beautiful women, and random BS wrapped up in a pretty package similar to the NCAA men’s tourney bracketology system.

The No. 1 seeds were revealed Tuesday (and just like in the NCAA, geography was completely disregarded) :

West Region: The Sporting Blog

Midwest Region: Fanhouse

South Region: Pro Football Talk

East Region: Deadspin

Seeds were determined by Ballhype rankings.  Voting will continue the final two weeks of 2008, with the winner declared sometime around the dawn of the new year.  A year ago, Fire Joe Morgan walked away with the championship belt.

With a gaudy average of 30 unique visitors per day, yours truly was hoping for a chance to compete in a play-in tussle with this particular juggernaut, but the pussies proved too powerful.

Review the entire field in printable bracket form here.
