    AIC is a great band but they are more grunge than metal. Lots of "bubble" bands we excluded for future tourney's as well. NIN & Marilyn Manson were two of Swaye's suggestions that ended up not in. I felt with a limited field of 32 you had to be pretty commonly considered "Metal" to get an invite. The only band that we included that I think is at all questionably metal is probably System of a Down(who I like) but I heard enough poasters ask for them that I went with it. They seem to be garnering enough votes to justify the decision.

    To Doog Bot's credit, he took his time and got a lot of feedback before doing the brackets. I just banged 'em out in one day and said here you go fuck faces.
    To be fair, your way is the Hardcore Husky way. Specifically the fuck faces part.
    Also, all of my #1 and #2 seeds with one exception (i.e., #7 queen) made it to the Elite 8 and the Natty game was #1 vs #1 so I predicted with a high degree of accuracy who was going to make a deep run. I conceded early to DNC that I fucked him (not homo) on AiC, but they wouldn't have made it that far I think (Sweet 16 would have been a miracle).

    Also, as DNC was dealing with with the Rap seeding. There's not necessarily a neat and tidy way to put this all together or to cut it all up(4 brackets of 8). Sometims you gotta just go with what works 81% of the tim.

    DNC needs to hold fast and tell the Millenial Doogs to fuck off with their post 2000 hip hop.

    The only acceptable response to why AIC is out would be because of a post season ban.

    The backstory if you haven't heard it already is that I was trying to come up with 16 bands from the late 1980s to the present for than part of the bracket. Gave bids to Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, but adding in AiC (i.e., 4 of the 16 bands) felt like too much Seattle grunge scene. Then all hell broke loose which was surprising given that this is a college football message bored of a school located in Seattle.
    I think you're about the best guy and best poster here Snow, I love your board and everything else you've done on it, but I hate you with the intensity of a billion supermassive black holes colliding for this one poor decision. That's the nature of football fandom for you. Get it right every time or die.

    They wouldn't accept the invitation to the all metal NIT. Not metal enough.

    I will count voting at noon and figure out tie breakers. Depending on how busy I am I'll start round 2 this afternoon.

    Can Bodom ride the momentum through the next round as the Cinderella team? Is Lemmy or Ozzy in fact god? Both Dimmu and Megadeth struggled in the first round, which one will bounce back? Will Glam metal take over the progressive bracket with Twisted Sister and Motley Crue? A juggernaut matchup of Dio vs. Cooper! Who is going to stop Slayer? Sweet Sixteen!
