The NCAA Tournament has already kicked off and it has been full of news:
— BYU opened the NCAA up with a “White out”, which if you arent familiar, means five white players on the floor at the same time. It is a rare sight in big-time college basketball and I will admit that it totally threw me off and made me reconsider my pick of BYU in the bracket. But so far the fighting bowl cuts are all doing fairly well. They are of course helped by the fact that
— Florida still has Dan Werner. Some of you are asking why it is we give Dan Werner such a hard time, and its simple. He is awful. I know that you have asked, “well he isnt that much worse than anyone else”, but I disagree. He plays a number of minutes, shoots all the time and makes more key turnovers than any player I have seen. All that while turning down Kentucky because he wanted to wear flip-flops to class in February. He deserves our scorn.
— There is no one at any of these games. Seriously, look in the crowd. There were more fans at Bryan the Intern Appreciation Day. I assume it will be better later tonight, but if there are 50 people at the Notre Dame-Old Dominion game, I would be shocked.
— Villanova is playing Robert Morris and if you watch any of this game, you are officially sick. Even I, sitting at the Big Blue Country bar in Louisville, havent even glanced in that direction.
— I have to cover the New Orleans bracket for CBS, which means focusing on Luke Harangody. If your daughter brought Harangody home, would you be happy or sad? He gets you 15 and 6 a game, but you know your grandkids will look like Harangody. Its a tough call.
No news yet from New Orleans on the Cats…if it comes we will tell you. Click on the link below and watch the games:
