As compared to the HoF bracket, which is a championship bracket for the real people that populate Cal's history, this is a joke tournament for the various inside jokes or (memes) that populate this website. Just a fun thing to do during the off-season, it's just wrapping up as we enter the fall training camp. This is the last weekend of the Elite 8. Starting next weekend, it'll be the Final Four and then we'll be wrapping it up after that. But for now we still have more Elite 8 to whet our appetite. Here we have Bak Bak v. Pain Train. Here is the bracket. Read the information behind the fold and then vote in the poll.
Last time out, Bak Bak beat Stego, a disappointing result for many Stegothusiasts. Many Stegopartisans. Bak Bak first took on SydBoner. That was a big matchup, but this should prove EVEN BIGGER! Of course, Bak Bak cock-blocked SydBoner. Twas epic!
Pain Train (6)
The Pain Train did not come from either CGB; in fact, for those of us too young to remember (ahem, rollonubears!), the Pain Train first appeared in a 2003 Super Bowl commercial featuring Terry Tate, Office Linebacker:
Clearly that commercial left an impression on our future Golden Ziger, Zack Follett.
"Terry Tate -- number 56, the Office Linebacker, the Pain Train -- was my hero from watching those commercials," Follett said. "I try to emulate him when I'm out there.
"When I was in junior high my buddy Marcus Moore and I went to a sporting goods store that sold a Reebok Terry Tate jersey. I bought one immediately. We watched all of his You Tube clips. He was bringing the Pain Train and he had his Woo-woo sound. I used to do it in high school, I used to blow the horn...it kind of stuck with me a little bit."
So vote for the Pain Train. After all, you don't want this to happen to you, do you?

Bak Bak (1)
There has been a lot of bad news coming out of Sudan. Genocide. Horrific human rights abuses.
But finally a ray of sunshine in that terrible, terrible cloud. A shining beacon of hope for a devastated group of people. And by devastated group of people, I, of course, mean Cal basketball fans.
Yes, cometh Bak Bak! He is everything you could ever want in a basketball (or, more accurately, BakBaketball player).
Bak Bak is a new recruit to the Cal basketball team. He's a pretty good player, apparently needs to put on some weight and work on his game a little bit more. But the sheer audacity of his name is so audaciously audacious that total awesomeness ensued. I mean c'mon, how much more do I need to explain this? Dudes first name is Bak. And his last name is.............also Bak. The only thing better would be if his name was Ong Bak.
Bak Bak is going to the finals, you heard it here first!
Who wins? Bak Bak or Pain Train?
