NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Regional Quarter Finals, Day 2

We could call Friday “Giant Slayer Day”, at least on the Men’s side of the Tournament. In addition to the big one, the crushing defeat of Virginia (picked by many as the top seed to win the whole thing) by University of Maryland, Baltimore College, a historically Black College known more for turning out Physicians, …

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 1, Regional Quarter Finals

Sorry. Distracted. 140 – 52. Tournament Record (121, Men’s or Women’s) shattered. Not 3:1. Not 149+ (most points ever, Men or Women). Room for improvement. A-. I don’t think there’s a team on the Men’s side who can hang with them if they swapped today. Even less so if they had a few months to …

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 2, Round of 64, Evening

Let me say I’m pleased as punch that the Orangemen played their way into the big dance. I haven’t made many predictions today (they’re mostly wishes anyway) but I’m highly gratified when they make me seem not quite such an idiot as I actually am. Wednesday’s Results Seed Team Record Score Seed Team Record Score …

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 1, Round of 64, Evening

The winners of the 2 Play In games that took place Tuesday are appearing tonight. It’s hard to call any of the Play In games upsets because they’re between 2 identical seeds but normally teams that win in an upset are marked with an Asterisk (*). Teams are presented higher seed to the left, the …

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 1, Round of 64, Afternoon

Gaaaaaaaaaaaah! Ok, this installment is complete. It takes you through 6:45 pm. None of the winning teams that played Tuesday night are appearing until the evening so the results are not relevant. Do I have some favorites? Sure. Rhode Island because they’re Rhode Island and I live in Connecticut, plus Oklahoma. Wright State because they’re …

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 2 Play Ins

As it turns out I have a rooting interest today, though I don’t expect much will come of it. I’m a pretty fair fan of Syracuse because I spent several years working there as a Life Guard and Water Safety Instructor. Never went to see a game live either at Manley or the Dome (or …

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 1 Play Ins

March Madness as in I must be insane to attempt this. It’s an unbelievable amount of work. Clicking through on the team’s name brings you to their school basketball home page. Clicking through on their record brings you to their game results in case you’re foolish enough to try and handicap and are involved in …

6:09 TBS Gonzaga-Xavier West Region Xavier is the only true underdog left, but Gonzaga has been waiting for years. I’ll give this one to TMC. 8:49 TBS Kansas-Oregon Midwest Region The only team I hate more than Kansas is Kentucky (actually Florida and South Carolina are pretty reprehensible too). Anyway, Go Ducks!

I have this someplace but I can’t find it at the moment. Here are the essentials- 7:09 CBS Oregon-Michigan You should root for Michigan because I was born there and they are underdogs, but Oregon is ok too. 7:39 TBS Gonzaga-West Virginia You should root for Gonzaga because TMC likes their name. 9:39 PM CBS …
