Virginia had all the ACC land from winning their conference tournament... and promptly gave it to umcb in the first round, who then gave it to KSU. All the territory FSU has now was won in the tournament.

Doesn't take that much thought to figure out. You just follow the bracket upstream, and Virginia was the ACC tournament champion.

These territory maps wind up a lot more logical than the college football imperialism version, because everybody plays down in tournaments and tournament winners all make the NCAA tournament. Much like the magnificent college hockey championship belt, these things usually work themselves out by the end of the season.

The college hockey championship belt has been tracked literally back to the beginning of the sport, a labor of love by Ralph Baer on the USCHO board. Notre Dame just took the overall belt from Michigan Tech, I believe.

Because we've beaten someone who already owned the Tallahassee region. Florida State already lost it somewhere along the way and we've picked it up from someone else over the course of the season.

Its just like the football one that got mentioned all CFB season.

You start with all the land your university is closest to. 

Win you beat someone, you gain their land, and all land they have acquired via their wins. 

When you lose, you lose your land and all that that you acquired.

You can lose your land, and then beat someone later and gain new land.

Its for the whole season,not just the tournament.

Man what is it like to have that kind of time on your hands? I have to hide in the bathroom to read MGOBLOG. My family thinks I have IBS. Sorry for those that do, that’s shitty.

Firstly, this is all done by so.e person on Reddit - I just posted it here since it is mildly amusing to some of us. Second, I don't believe it takes much time to update. Most of work was likely to create the map and index of original territories (this appears to be done on a county-by-county basis). Once that is done, the rest is just reassigning counties by wins and losses. The person posting has new maps up every few days, so it must not take long. Still more time than I would devote to sports trivia/fanatiscism, but I can appreciate it.
