10 Random Notes From a Tournament Saturday Night

1. I’m a big Big Ten guy, but I obviously need more self-esteem when it comes to my conference. I thought that we were coming into the tournament looking pretty unimpressive and were on the road to embarrassment. Instead, we have two teams in very good shape. Michigan State put together a solid, impressive win […]

Live Blogging Thursday’s Games

We are just a couple minutes away from the first tip-off. I’ll check in periodically throughout the day with thoughts and such. All times will be mountain time, so add two hours for eastern, subtract one for pacific and so on: 10:20 a.m. – We’re underway with Xavier and Georgia. It is very strange seeing […]

NCAA Tournament Eve

When I was a little kid I was never able to sleep on Christmas Eve. I could hardly even stand to close my eyes. I would just lie there thinking of what was about to come the next day – the presents, the food, the people, the excitement. It was excruciating and torturous, and every […]

Should We Be Worried About UCLA’s Health?

UCLA is a very popular choice to win it all, and they are very likely to find themselves going very deep in most of my brackets. It only makes sense – they have been to the Final Four twice in a row, and this team is just as good as the last two teams. Kevin […]

10 Tips for a Winning March Madness Bracket

If you have a pulse then you have probably already fill out an NCAA Tournament bracket, and you probably will fill out several more before Thursday. I’m not pretending that I have all the answers, but I’m also not that moron in every pool who makes the painfully stupid picks, either. I don’t win every […]

First Thoughts on the Bracket

The bracket has just been announced, and I am sure my opinions will change the more I look at it, but here is what jumps out at me as my initial reactions: Most generous seeding – Washington State. I thought they would be a six or a seven, not a four. I don’t like their […]

Saturday Conference Tournament Quick-Hits

It’s been an exciting couple of days in the world of college hoops. There have been a million things worth paying attention to. Here are 20 to start: 1. The Georgia Dome is obviously cursed. I blame Bobby Petrino. 2. Either the Georgia or Kentucky players are going to sleep well tonight. I wonder when […]

Friday’s Quick Conference Tournament Notes

Some of the things that caught my eye on Thursday during the conference tournaments: I hate to admit it because I really don’t like them, but Georgetown impressed me. They beat up on Villanova by shooting the lights out and by absolutely smothering Villanova’s offense, and that did it despite not getting a single point […]
