Due to an administrative error whereby I accidentally set the Sweet Sixteen polls to run for a week longer than they were supposed to, the 2014 Ridiculous Basketball Player Names Tournament is still going on, having lost all its previous momentum. Nevertheless, we are down to the Elite Eight. Here are the matchups!

As always, these names are completely genuine. If you don't believe it, Google it.
THE "WHAT THE HELL?" REGIONAL
(1) Grienntys Chief Kickingstallionsims v (3) Typhoon Dusk Nurse
Journeys so far:
(1) Grienntys Chief Kickingstallionsims
First round: Won 359-40 v (16) Indiana Faithfull
Second round: Won 125-39 v (8) God'sgift Achiuwa
Sweet Sixteen: Won 85-37 v (5) Solomon HorseChief
The Chief has not even flinched in his run to the Elite Eight thus far, not even batting an eyelid in the expected-classic Chief v HorseChief Sweet Sixteen matchup he ultimately won comfortably. This is a shame for Solomon HorseChief fans everywhere, including myself, and frankly I'm starting to wish I had fixed it.
(3) Typhoon Dusk Nurse
First round: Won 257-83 v (14) Drake U'u
Second round: Won 118-33 v (6) D'Awvalo Turnipseed
Sweet Sixteen: Won 77-39 v (7) Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje
Boumtje-Boumtje was something of a people's favourite, yet he was no match for TDN, one of three remaining non-US competitors.
