Bucks Survivor: Week Seven

Last week I stated that the latest round of Bucks Survivor would be a double-elimination, and I did this for two reasons. One, I wanted to speed up the contest a little bit. Two, I figured that a double-elimination week would garner up some interest in the competition. Sadly, I am beginning to see that Bucks Survivor may be 2000 and late. The last thing that I wanted this week was a tie for the second elimination spot, but that is exactly what happened. Rather than trying to force a tie breaker, I'm going to cut my losses and make this a triple elimination. I'm also going to assume that the Bucks Survivor concept is one of the great things ever created on a sports blog, and that the discontent with the weekly feature is more of a reflection of the lack of interest in the Milwaukee Bucks. Anyway, the voting from last week:

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute (6%)
Brandon Jennings (0%)
Carlos Delfino (12%)
Andrew Bogut (6%)
Drew Gooden (50%)
Ersan Ilyasova (6%)
Larry Sanders (6%)
John Salmons (12%)

Because I was the final vote on Salmons that tied him with Delfino, we'll say that Carlos Delfino is the sixth man and your starting lineup for next year would consist of Brandon Jennings at the point, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute would have to be the two-guard by default, Ersan Illyasova plays shooting forward, Larry Sanders would play the four, and then Andrew Bogut is slated in at center. Not the greatest lineup I've ever seen, but then again these are the Bucks we're talking about.

So anyway, back to single elimination for the final five, and voting can be done on the right hand side of the blog. Yeah!

Maybe to liven it up, you should bring back old Bucks like Glenn Robinson or Desmond Mason or have a separate round where the voted off players square off one-on-one.
I'm making fun of Survivor of course, but the first idea actually sounds pretty cool.
