Turtle Talk Tallies: Comments and recs report from the week of March 17

Jake Nazar, SpinningGamera, & BulletTerp take home the commenting awards this week.

Happy Monday all! Hope you had a great, basketball-filled weekend. What an amazing NCAA Tournament. I think this might be the best non-2002 NCAA Tourney I have ever watched. Is it evil that I love all of the #GoACC early exits? I was thinking the other day that if none of the B1G teams win this year, we will be the most recent NCAA Champ B1G team. Would be kind of cool IMHO. Anyway, hope you enjoy this week's installment of Turtle Talk Tallies.

Here are some general stats for the week:

Total Comments were up 41% and Total Recs were up 38% from last week.

SpinningGamera's Total Recs were up 51% from last week, but his rec to comment ratio was up 41%.
