Relatively small triple co-sheeps on this one, with 3 options going unused. I realized I hadn't ever seen Olive, the Other Reindeer; watched it the other day and liked all the nods to other Christmas specials.

I was hoping that many would be too young to remember Chaminade's big upset of the Ralph Sampson-led Virginia Cavaliers.
I'm smart and I want respect.

I’m not big on college/university locations. But my nephew started at Northwestern last fall, so I at least knew where that one was. The only other one I knew with some certainty was Pepperdine.

Baaaaaaa

Is there a prize for the most sheep answers? Do I get to play fast money for a chance at $20,000 or something?
