Here's an example from last year. Let's take Texas and USC, a second round match-up. USC is the Trojans, who are named for the Greek warriors of Troy. The Greeks are Dead White European Males or DWEMS. You might think, perfect, pick Texas. Not so fast. Remember, USC is playing Texas, home of Bush and Big Oil, including Halliburton, and Jenna Bush went there, so we pick USC. If USC was playing Wisconsin, then we'd pick against USC because of the offensiveness of their nickname.
