    Once again, the only matchup of land-adjacent teams was won by the lower seed. There are two such matchups tomorrow, although they're only second-degree adjacent (KU-USC; Alabama-Maryland).

    Just be you. You is enough. - K, 4/5/10, 0:13.8 to play, 60-59 Duke.

    You're all jealous hypocrites. - Titus on Laettner

    You see those guys? Animals. They're animals. - SIU Coach Chris Lowery, on Duke

    The Elite 8 features major western and southwestern land grabs of areas east of Ann Arbor. And the sad departure of the pantsless duck.

    So UCLA owns more coast-line in New England than it does in California even though it is less than a mile from the Pacific.

    How do we tell where Michigan territory ends and USC territory begins?
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    They're very slightly different yellows. But the issue here is that USC's scarlet and Arkansas's brick red are exactly the same color, so they would be even harder to delineate between (Michigan's blue is also pretty close to Gonzaga's blue). I could have made Arkansas black, USC scarlet, and Michigan yellow, but it was hard to predict in advance that all of them would reach the Elite 8 - if those three teams happen to make the final four, I'll probably make the color swap.

    Earlier maps will help show where the boundary lines are - USC has taken Oregon, VCU, Kansas, Drake, Wichita State, Eastern Washington, Iowa, and Grand Canyon in addition to its original territory; Michigan has taken over Colorado, Florida State, UNC Greensboro, Georgetown, LSU, Texas Southern, Mount St. Mary's, and St. Bonaventure. So the borders that are tough to delineate are between Colorado and Grand Canyon (to the SW) and Wichita State (to the E) and between Georgetown and VCU.

    Down to 6 (with SC's color changed to scarlet to better contrast with Michigan Maize)

    Final Four Map. The winner of Gonzaga-UCLA will carry much more land into the final than the winner of Baylor-Houston.

    Now you can see what I was talking about. All four remaining teams lay claim to parts of North Carolina (Houston has the smallest presence, with 8 counties at the western tip). Now that the map is simpler and the color contrast is clearer, I can say the same of a few other states:

    Ohio (pretty good distribution; UCLA has about 10 counties in the Northwest)
    Texas (Gonzaga has two tiny counties in the Northeast panhandle)
    Virginia (UCLA has one county at the NC border, plus about 7 more adjacent to DC)
    West Virginia (UCLA has 4 counties in its panhandle)

    Meanwhile, Arizona, Mississippi, and Maine are the three largest states wholly conquered by one team. This was true of Arizona (Grand Canyon) and Maine (Hartford) when the tournament started. The Michigan-UCLA winner united Mississippi, which was originally split into LSU and Alabama factions.

    Going into the final game, Gonzaga holds most of the land west of the Mississippi and Baylor holds most of the land East (although the Zags could go from the San Juan islands to the gulf coast southeast of Tallahassee without crossing into enemy territory). The smallest remaining isolated territories for each team are Baylor's three Southern California counties and Gonzaga's stronghold in the Ohio-WVA borderlands. It all goes one color tonight!

    It's a really nice shade of green:
