It all comes down to this.
Our field of 32 teams has finally made its way down to the final two competitors. The Final Four matchups were, in the end, not even close, with a 20 point blowout serving as the closest of the two throwdowns. I guess the vanquished Final Four contenders can take heart in knowing there is a significant gap between themselves and the participants in the championship.
Who will be crowned the Worst Law School In America?
It’s appropriate that a fundamentalist Christian law school stars in this David and Goliath matchup. Perennially mocked — yet self-appointed #2 law school in the land — Thomas M. Cooley was the odds on bet to win this competition from the get go. Meanwhile scrappy Liberty battled to the Finals all the way from the eighth seed in the WNEC Bracket.
And now it’s time to decide.
One thing is certain though: no matter which school prevails, I win. Both participants in the Finals were picked by yours truly in our ATL editorial draft, so I’m winning this internal competition regardless. Thanks everyone.
The winner will be determined by a reader poll. You can define “the worst” however you choose. Feel free to justify your votes in the comments.
The poll is below. The Finals will close on SUNDAY, APRIL 6, at 11:59 P.M. (Eastern). Vote early, and tell your colleagues and friends.
