Lots going on, but still no one in the stands:
— Just like last year, when Villanova was down ten at halftime to American, Nova is trying to lose to Robert Morris, a team so deftly previewed by CM Tomlin for CBS. I have mixed feelings about this game because I need teams that can beat Duke to survive. However a #2 seed has only lost to a #15 seed three times and thus it is historic and I root for those kind of upsets. So for today, go Robert Morris.
— BYU has a Mormon with a mohawk, which has to be one of the strangest sights in the history of organized basketball.
— It is coming down to the wire and as of now, Dan Werner has not lost the game for the Gators. However there are still ten minutes to go and Florida is down by 8…so I expect him to continue to reak his terribleness over the final segments.
— I was talked into betting the over on Old Dominion and Notre Dame, which was a poor decision. It was set at 120 and seemed like a no-brainer. I blame Hubby for suckering me into it. 41-40 with eight minutes to go.
— I love the ODU coach’s moustache so much that I simply cant explain it. As the game goes on, it seems to grow and CM Tomlin’s line about him having to leave the game to “go and make the donuts”, about made me lose it.
Big games coming later….
