Even though March seems to be taken over by college basketball every year, any UW Oshkosh student knows that the sporting event taken the most serious on campus is drinking. Bracket mania as well as a great run by the UW Oshkosh men’s basketball team inspired our staff at the Advance-Titan to make a bracket of our own. It’s time to finally decide the age-old question: which bar is best? Dive/Townie 1 Jabroni vs. 4 Mabel Murphy’s This first round matchup between neighboring taverns will be one to watch, with the heavyweight Jabroni as a favorite to win out the region. When it comes down to it, the contest will be decided on whether or not you want to walk the extra 30 feet from one bar to another. 3 Magnet VS 2 Distillery Pub Many tavern fans around Oshkosh were upset with the snub of D-pub as the two seed, so they will have something to prove when they look to advance and face Jabroni’s in the conference final. However, don’t completely count out Magnet, the favorite pool hall of many on campus and surrounding Oshkosh. Campus/ place to get faced 3 French VS 2 Molly’s In a region stacked with elite drinkers, which lady’s night host will come out on top? This will likely be the most even matchup in the tournament, and the winner should make for a championship favorite moving forward. 4 Scott Hall’s VS 1 Kelly’s Making the tournament on the bubble, the widespread opinion across campus felt that a dorm should not be able to participate in the tournament, but a strong showing from seventh floor says otherwise. This will be a tall order, though, as they are set to face perennial powerhouse Kelly’s Bar in round one. Pub & Grill 1 Varsity VS 4 Ruby Owl This could make for the most lopsided matchup in the tournament. Graduate students will have to come together to push Ruby Owl to the next level as they face downtown favorite Varsity in round one. 3 Legends VS 2 Bar 430 Sports bar takes on eatery in an interesting choice between the old and the new. What makes this matchup unique is that food rather than booze could decide the winner. Taphouse/Beer Garden 4 Fletch’s VS 1 Peabodies Newcomer Fletch will have to come up big against Peabodies in round one, whose strong beer garden game and summer festivities could very well carry them to the top in the tournament. 2 Oblio’s VS 3 Barley and Hops The other two downtown beer gardens will look to show that they can compete with powerhouse Peabody’s, but will first have to prove they are at least second best in another tight matchup between downtown drinkeries.
