Is Your Bracket…Busted??

Is Your Bracket …Busted??

What a great last few weeks as we have gone from 68 wannabees down to ……the Final 4! So many great stories, so much drama, so many personalities! On day 1, so many brackets were busted when one of the Final 4 favorites, Missouri, gets tripped up by Norfolk State in a classic #15 seed upset over a #2 seed. Right after that we have another #15 seed upset ( Lehigh ) beating #2 seed Duke. ACC Champion Florida State – that’s right – ACC Champion FSU, escapes game 1 and then falls to Cincy. NC State, who was the last team to get in the tourney, goes on a roll and makes it to the Sweet 16. Indiana, whom I thought was 1 year away from national contention, gets hot and is a HORRIBLE call away from giving Kentucky all they wanted ( the second foul on Zeller was a joke ). Roy Williams and his 3 first round NBA picks, once again plays down to it’s opponents. Rick Pitino proves why he is a legend and coaches his butt off to get the Cardinal into the Final 4. Vandy plays like, well Vandy, and gets bounced too early. Wisconsin boors you to death and has a classic tournament game against ‘Cuse. Wow, it has been so much fun and the fireworks are just getting ready to start!

How cool would it be to live in Kentucky this week? Pitino, public enemy #1, lead Kentucky to a National Championship before bolting to the NBA and the Boston Celtics. Now he leads the hated Cardinal against his former Wildcat team. Let’s see….if it boils down to X’s and O’s, who would you want coaching your team?? Fast forward to 2014… Hello Kentucky, this is the NCAA and we are investigating your basketball program. As great a game as this one will be, the matchup on the other side of the bracket, Ohio State vs. Kansas is just as intriguing. Bill Self has done a super job bringing the Jayhawks back this year after being decimated last year due to graduation and early NBA departures. Kansas bigs versus OSU bigs – WOW! Thad Motta is one of the best coaches to never have won an NCAA Championship. Self and Pitino have cut down the nets, Motta and Calipari haven’t. Something has to give this weekend! I like Louisville and Kansas to advance with Kansas, reminicent of Danny and the Miracles, cutting down the nets in one of the great Finals in years!!

In case you didn’t notice, Tiger Woods has finally won a PGA tour event. From tee to green, Tiger looked like the Tiger of old. Although he was never challenged on Sunday, his tee shots landed in the fairway, he stuck his irons, and putted very well. If his body holds up, we could be in for one of the most anticipated Masters in years. The Back 9 on Sunday at Augusta National is one of the best events in all of sport and this year could be a classic! I still get chills when I see the ’86 Masters with Jack making his charge on the back 9 to win! Tiger, Rory, Phil, Justin, Bubba, Lee, – wow, this could be special.

Why are we getting so excited about Brittany Griner dunking? I know it’s not common for a girl to dunk, but, she is 6’8″!! How high does she really have to jump??? And by the way, she only has 10 dunks playing against girls that are usually about 6’4″ or SMALLER. No doubt, she is a great player, but, Mugsy Bogues was 5 foot nothing and won the NBA Slam Dunk contest.

Did you see Kobe sulking on the bench for being taken out of the game? Just another reason, in the long list of reasons, why the NBA is a joke.

I just heard a rumor that Opening Day in the Major Leagues is just 2 weeks away. Is anybody paying attention??

Here is a potential GREAT college basketball coaching move. The South Carolina Gamecocks are about to sign Frank Martin of Kansas State as their new head coach. With Spurrier and Martin at USC, ESPN will have to expand SportsCenter to 1 1/2 hours for all those quotes and stories! Talk about 2 great personalities! It’s an exciting time to be a Gamecock fan.
