In the afterglow of the Wisconsin Badgers second straight trip to the Final Four, another group of Wisconsin-related individuals have made it to their own Final Four.
The Final Four of the Most Despised Milwaukee Brewers bracket!
For those unaware of the what happens from here, the "winner" of the tournament will be entered into the Brewers Hall of Shame with the original inductee: Gary Sheffield.
The other three who have reached the Final Four will join the Walk of Dishonor alongside Johnny Estrada, Ned Yost and Eric Gagne.
Furthermore, anyone who has appeared in the Final Four of the bracket is no longer eligible to appear in future Most Despised Brewers tournaments.
Without further ado, below you will see the results from the Elite 8 contests and the ensuing Final Four matchups, along with the updated tournament bracket and how to vote!
Elite 8 Results
(5) Lopes over (3) Turnbow; 58%
Like Ned Yost in the first tournament, Lopes is the only manager to make the Final Four. His "sunny" disposition and old-school stubbornness put him over the top, as his decision-making at the helm was a consistent strength. Turnbow certainly still had some zip on his fastball, but the inability to finish off the game haunted him once more.
(1) Suppan over (7) Meyer; 87%
With Yost in the stands telling people how great Soup is playing, the Kentucky of the bracket had a much easier time than the real Wildcats. We hear complaints all the time about Suppan, but can he finish off what would amount to a perfect season? He's supposedly a great postseason pitcher, you know.
(2) Selig-Prieb over (1) Bando; 50%
A first in tournament history as the two combatants split 642 votes right down the middle. In overtime, Selig-Prieb outscored Bando 26-21 for the win. She had just enough offensive prowess in taking down the franchise - and Bando. Selig-Prieb is the first non-manager or player to make the Final Four.
(1) Hammonds over (2) Betancourt; 52%
Another incredibly close battle, but Hammonds' higher payroll and hype machine was just enough to outlast Yuni being Yuni. Money talks with Wisconsin fans - especially wasted money. Some questioned the committees' selection of Hammonds as a top seed, but his performance throughout the tourney has vindicating the decision.
