Let's get ready to rummmmmmmble!
We're down to our final three match-ups in the MZone Blog Co-ed Showdown Sweet 16 and this could be interesting as #5 Brigid, the "Lethal Weapon Barbie," squares off against Jordanna, the "Paris Hilton Wannabe." Now, before we get to our scouting report, a brief explanation about why a girl who posed naked for Playboy only warranted a 12 seeding for today's clash...
We here at the MZone, not unlike the March Madness seeding committee, take many factors into consideration when placing our competitors in the brackets (hell, if only we spent this much time on our jobs). In Jordanna's case, we first ran across her in the May issue of Playboy where she was included in the "Girls of the Top Ten Party Schools" pictorial representing her school, Florida State. However, in the little blurb next to her picture she said her "goal" was to become the next Paris Hilton. Then, in an interview with a Florida State paper (along with fellow FSU student, Playboy pictorial poser and MZone BCS #3 seed, Jenn Sterger), Jordanna was asked, "Are there any projects you are working on for the future?" to which she answered, "Not that I know of."
Thus, it was due to these lofty life goals and apparent intelligence that the seeding committee felt she warranted a #12 in our bracket. You may call that harsh, we call them high standards. Remember, this isn't some little bullshit contest, we're talking about the MZone BCS!
Jordanna: Florida State
Claim to Fame:
Brigid: Plays in Women's Professional Football League, while in Air Force ROTC was first female cadet in two years to win the expert marksmanship award with a 9-mm, pageant-winning model, has flown airplanes
Jordanna: Got naked in Playboy
Brigid: Football pads in "Boys Junior" size

Impressed Us When:
Brigid: Made the WI Wolves of the Women's Professional Football League
Jordanna: Got kicked out of her sorority for posing in Playboy
Brigid: Investment banking or sports marketing
Jordanna: Non-working heiress
Brigid: "I know that learning plays is a very important part of football, but I really just want to hit some people. Is that so wrong?"
Jordanna: "Seeing other girls' pictures in Playboy, it looks really natural and almost effortless, but the way you have to hold these positions for long periods of time just to get one picture; it was a lot harder than I thought it would be."
Brigid: While in ROTC, flew small-prop planes and the T-37, the trainer jet for the F-16
Jordanna: Future member of the Mile High Club
If You Say So:
Brigid: "There have been job offers in marketing and finance; possible guest roles in upcoming movies; talk of TV shows; spokesmodel positions; radio interviews across the nation, and so on. I have even been advised to get an agent."
Jordanna: "I care more about personality than looks."
Brigid: "Hey, just because some of us are small doesn't mean we don't pack a punch."
Jordanna: "I am into all kinds of weird stuff. I think I might come off as a typical sorority girl, but I am definitely not as I seem. I am really into spirituality and metaphysics and weird things like that."
While Brigid is favored, judging from, how should we put this?, the one-track minds of some of our readers (you know who you are), this could be very, very close and an upset is not out of the question.

UPDATE: It has come to the attention of the MZone BCS Committee that FSU is attempting to stack the deck in this competition. Shame, 'Noles. Shame. Do we smell BCS-gate?
