Football Scheduling ACC/Big Ten Challenge Basketball Roster Breakdown and a near fist fight over Big Ten Basketball quality
The Wildcats win it all, Joe Loco wins the NonProfit Services 2nd chance bracket challenge with Mason and David Katz among others coming in 2nd place. Mason was the highest rated player to not have Villanova (he had Michigan).
From my point of view, the Villanova defense had Michigan befuddled for long stretches of the game. Or Michigan missed too many open shots.
The best of Michigan hoops was a bit earlier this season where they destroyed Maryland and rolled … Read More »
Mason leads the pack in first place heading into the Final 4 – he has Michigan as the champ.
In 2nd place is BallParchitect (Eric) selecting Michigan as the champs, Jacks Dog’s (Kansas) and David Katz (Villanova). All tied up. Bruce is down the list and Wayne is way down the list.
What a topsy-turvey tournament it has been. Georgetown Fan leads the 2nd chance bracket challenge as the only fan who picked all 4 games correctly. We know some folks who went 0-4 last night.
Loyola of Chicago, K-State, FSU and Michigan? Wow, what a list of winners. The only one that was overly popular was Michigan.
With both Kentucky and Gonzaga going out, it has left ever more bracket debris in the wake of this fast moving, upset laden tournament.
For those of you that have had your brackets wrecked by the action over the weekend, here is your 2nd chance.

As the game clock ticked toward zero and Kansas State leading 50-41 Sunday night in Charlotte, it was evident that UMBC’s slipper was not only made of glass but was about to shatter. Coach Ryan Odom had emptied his bench allowing the crowd to acknowledge his team’s accomplishment and his seldom used players the chance to take the court in an NCAA game.
In their brief playing time, those five players displayed the same never give … Read More »

The world turned upside down as the clock neared midnight on March 16, 2018 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The voice of Dr. Peter Venkman shouting, “… dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria!” echoed through my mind. My cell phone, normally quiet after nine p.m. erupted in such a burst of activity that I needed to silence the notification feature. And I had no words. The cataclysmic event that prompted this was UMBC’s 75-54 win over … Read More »
