The clock the definitely struck 12, and struck 12 hard for the Cinderellas left in the tournament. The double digit seeds met their match last night. The Washington Huskies hung around for most of the first half with West Virginia, but even without their starting point guard, the 'neers were to much for them to handle and began to pull away in the second half. As for the other Cinderella, the people's (as chosen by ESPN) favorite, Cornell met their match last night. UK was too long, too fast, and too talented for The Big Red to even get a 3 point shot, much less make one. For the most part it looked like a good high school team trying to compete with a Division 1 college team.
As for the other side of the bracket, the games were much more evenly matched. As shown in the Kansas St. versus Xavier game that ended up in double overtime. Neither of these 2 teams wanted to lose and they both fought until the last horn sounded. It was, from an all around perspective, the best game thus far in the tournament. But the back court of the Wildcats proved to much to handle in the end. After seeing most of the teams play, I think of the teams left, K-State may be the only team that could compete with Kentucky. And I'm not for sure they even could.
As for the last game last night. I believe it was the most disappointing of all of the games. Especially for me, considering I had the Orange winning it all. Syracuse came out and just couldn't seem to hold on to the basketball. It looked like a greased pig. They were dropping rebounds, dribbling off their foot, and throwing the ball away. It was as ugly as they played all year. And Butler took advantage. They didn't even have to use their 3-point shooting as a weapon because of the turnovers. And I don't remember a team ever getting so many friendly rolls for a team in the last 2 minutes of a game than what Butler got at the end of that game.
But the Elite 8 is beginning to take form here, and after tonight we will learn the other 4 teams in. But judging from last night it may not matter who makes it because it sure seems like Kentucky is by far the team to beat right now, and everything (upsets) seems to be going their way. Is it lucky number 8 for the bluegrass?

Wow. What a weekend of college basketball. No doubt the discussions around the workplace today will begin with, "How's your bracket?" I must admit, I'm a UK fan and I have them winning it all, however, I never thought we would see Kansas exit BEFORE the sweet sixteen. And honestly, how many people have Cornell, Washington, AND Saint Mary's ALL making through the first weekend? I gotta say, even though I've got UK winning it all, my bracket is totally screwed. But, I can't worry about that now. The Cats are hot and there is plenty of good basketball yet to be played. Here's a rundown of the sweet sixteen matchups and my early predictions(for what it's worth):
9 Northern Iowa v. 5 Michigan St. - Hard to go against Izzo and the Spartans here but with Kalen Lucas banged up, I like the Panthers to keep the magic alive
6 Tennessee v. 2 Ohio St. - I hate Tennessee and Bruce Pearl. 'Nuff said.
1 Syracuse v. 5 Butler - Wesley Johnson is a machine and Butler doesn't have a player named John Connor to stop him
6 Xavier v. 2 Kansas St. - Hard not to root for the Muskateers, one for all and all for one!
1 Kentucky v. 12 Cornell - It's a good thing this game will be played on a basketball court and not in the classroom. Kentucky rolls.
11 Washington v. 2 West Virginia - It's all relative in West Virginia, and relatively speaking WVU is the better team
1 Duke v. 4 Purdue - Chris Kramer punches Kyle Singler in the face, unfortunately he's tossed and Duke moves on
3 Baylor v. 10 Saint Mary's - Baylor's too much, even for three Australians

1) The Midwest will produce your National Champion. Kansas is definitely the team to beat in this bracket that is stacked with 4 teams that could easily make a run. Michigan St., OSU, and Georgetown could all make a run to the championship game. But none of these teams have the mixture of experience, shooting, rebounding, and talent that Kansas has and they should be the favorite to be the last team standing in this bracket. Quick question, how does the #1 overall seed draw this bracket?
2) Louisville has a better chance at beating Duke than they do at beating Cal. I've never seen a team that plays more to their competition than this team. So, if this team does end up beating Cal I would almost consider them a lock to take down Duke.
3) Syracuse fans should already be booking their flights and hotels to Indy. Other than the fact this is the west bracket and they will have to travel an awful long way in the Sweet 16/Elite 8 rounds there doesn't seem to be any one in the bracket that could legitimately contest the Orange.
4) Teams to Watch (Upsets):
SDSU over UT, Georgia Tech over Ok. State, Minnesota over Xavier, Cornell over Temple, Mizzu over Clemson, Utah St over Texas A&M, St. Mary's over Richmond
5) Potential Glass Slippers:
Minnesota - Tubby seems to have his team playing his brand of basketball at the right time.
St. Mary's - Experienced gaurd play always helps out in the tourney.
Murray St. - 1 of only 3 teams to have won 30 games this year. The other 2 are #1 seeds.
6) Names you'll be hearing:
Wes Johnson - The best all around player out of the best conference.
Scottie Reynolds - Villanova will only go as far as he will take them. Which I think is a long way.
Evan Turner - He will prove why he was the player of the year.
7) This will be the year that Huggy Bear will break through. Bob Huggins has always been considered a really good coach. But when it comes to the big dance he always seemed to leave before the clock struck 12. This is the year that he will make a deep run and finally have a chance to be considered with some of the best.
8) Teams you better have as the last one standing:
Kansas, Syracuse, or UK

As Sunday evening approached and the anticipation grew, you could feel the madness in the air. Who will be dubbed the #1 seeds? who's in and who's out? where will my team be placed? It's one of the few times during the year that feels like Christmas Eve, between the hours of the last conference championship game and the selection show, and Christmas morning when it's time to unveil the teams.
Now that the brackets are out, everyone should just move forward. We need not talk and debate weather the Mississippi States, Illinois and Virginia Tech should be in. Do I think VT should have made it in over Clemson? Absolutely. But that has no relevance now, and none of these team will have a chance to play for the title so it really doesn't matter. I apologize, I've already spent too much time talking about that topic....moving on.
There are some very interesting match ups that are already set in place, and that we're hoping to see down the line if things play out in the way they are supposed to. The first one that jumps out at me is Cornell & Temple. Cornell is under-seeded if you ask me and I think that is going to be a great game. Also watching Siena take on a Robby Hummel-less Purdue team should be interesting also. Purdie has been struggling since he has been out. Can JaJuan Johnson carry the load or will they fall because 1/2 of their dynamic duo is out? Also looking toward the future, if things play out Kentucky & West Virginia should be a great game with explosive offensive scorers like John Wall, Demarcus Cousins and Da'Sean Butler and Devin Ebanks. Also when looking ahead I would love to see Evan Turner and the Buckeyes take on Austin Freeman and Georgetown in the sweet 16.
Cinderella teams as we all know make up great tournament play. Here are my top few Cinderella teams to watch out for (10-16 seeds) The Murray State Racers (13) who take on Vandy in the first round and who could possibly upset either Butler and or UTEP in a trip to the sweet 16. Cornell (12) starts out with a tough game against Temple but with a bunch of white guys who can shoot the lights out they could easily get out of the first round and then beat, Wisconsin and even give Kentucky a run for their money as Miami OH did early in the Wildcats season.
Some teams that could make some noise that are considered middle of the road teams (5-9) would be Texas A&M who finished their season strong in the top 25, winning 9 of their last 12 games, and out of the games they lost 2 of those losses were to #1 overall seed Kansas and Baylor. Marquette and Notre Dame are two other you should keep an eye on. Two teams from the Big East who has made some noise as on late and has good momentum going into the big dance.
Finally, some top seeds that may fall early....you have to look at Syracuse not having Arinze Onuaku in their starting line up. Also a very young Kentucky team in a tough, tough region also might bite it early. Kansas State who I think could make a Final Four run could have some trouble with BYU in the 2nd round.
I could be wrong about all these teams, but thats the great things about basketball in March. Nobody knows whats going to happen, and we all can't wait for Thursday to come and for tournament basketball to get rolling.

Here we go folks, were heading into one of the most exciting days of the year. Selection Sunday. It's full of conference championship games, then the anticipation leading up to the selection show. Here in the bluegrass state we already know Kentucky and Big Blue Nation will be receiving a #1 seed. However when Louisville lost in their first game in the Big East tournament, fans in the Ville were wondering where they may land in the big dance. Fans were hoping if Louisville made a deep run they may be able to squeeze themselves into a 6 or 7 seed. Now with the loss where will they wind up? The 8-9 game? The 7-10 game as the 10 seed? or even worse?
Let's just imagine for a moment that Louisville does grab a 8 or 9 seed. At one point Joe Lunardi had Louisville and Kentucky in the same region matched up with those seeds. That would mean if Louisville and Kentucky both advanced in their first round games they would meet again in the 2nd round. How great would that be for basketball in Kentucky? Now maybe some Louisville fans wouldn't enjoy playing Kentucky in the tournament after what happened early this year. But would it be safe to say that Kentucky fans wouldn't want to play Louisville either? The Cards would be looking for revenge after a wild game in Lexington this past January. I think you would see different opinions on both sides on the fence in this rivalry. Some wanting to avoid it at all costs, and some relishing the thought of the in state rivals playing each other in the tournament.
If you are a true basketball fan in the state of Kentucky you should want to see this game. The two teams haven't met in the tournament since 1983 in the first "Dream Game" this would truly be another dream game for basketball fans in Lexington and Louisville. Since the last game between these 2 programs was such a heated contest, I think players, fans and even Coach Cal and Coach Pitino wouldn't mind locking up again. Even though the teams would be pretty far apart between seeds. Anyone could imagine the game being much closer then the seeds would indicate. We'll just have to wait and see....
Check out the selection show Sunday Night on CBS @ 7pm....Also for your enjoyment, here is a clip of the build up between Louisville and Kentucky's first "Dream Game"

The University of Louisville's Basketball team made sure that Freedom Hall would close it's doors in the most positive manor possible. The Cards Surprised a lot of people when they beat Syracuse, the #1 team in the country on Saturday. Senior Jerry Smith started the game out with a hot hand scoring the first 8 points for the cardinals. He injured his hand and didn't play a single minute during the 2nd half, which opened up extra minutes for Louisville bench players. One being Mr. Kyle Kuric, who scored 22 points and hit four 3 pointers to help stretch the Cardinals lead. The Cards did what they had to do and won the most important game this season, if not Freedom Hall history.
Not only did this help clinch a NCAA tournament birth for the Cardinals this season. It helped close out a legendary tradition in the city of Louisville. It helped solidify the magic of The Hall, it added another great memory to those that already exist. Weather it was "The Comeback" against Tennessee when Rece Gains and Bryant Northern hit three 3's in the last 30 seconds to win the game after being down six or weather it was "The Dagger" when Edgar Sosa hit the last second game winner to beat Kentucky in 2009. This game can be put right up next to all of those. Where they all rank I have no idea, but they're all just a treasure box in my mind that I can sort through from time to time and thanks to You Tube....it's a bit easier....enjoy Cards Fans

This isn't the first game winning shot Sosa will be remembered for. He hit the game winner last season against arch rival Kentucky....like I have to remind Cards fans of that stat. Though Edgar has been taking a lot of heat from Cards fans this season. He hasn't seen the success or received the praise of past Louisville seniors like Terrence Williams and David Padgett who helped lead their teams to trips to the Elite 8. Sosa was praised in his earlier years for playing beyond what most freshman and sophomores typically played. He was nicknamed the Tiger. The last 2 years he seemed not to have grown any, he seemed to still be that player who could make things happen but still made bad decisions and just all around didn't grow as a player from his early days. This Afternoon he did make a play that everyone will remember....and least for the rest of this season.
Louisville played quiet good even though they were dominated on the glass 22-50 and Kemba Walker put together a nice game scoring 28 points 4 rebounds 3 assists and 2 blocks. U Conn in the end just committed too many turn overs, or should I say Louisville forced too many. 15 of the 22 TO's U Conn committed were steals by the Cards. Peyton Siva and Preston Knowles played extremely well on defense each getting 3 steals and offense. Knowles hitting big shots and Siva taking on the roll of field general and utilizing his leadership skills.
Louisville goes on the road again this week to take on Marquette, before heading back home for the last brawl in Freedom Hall against Syracuse. At least one more win should secure a spot in the NCAA tourney for the Cards. Though another win on the road or a win against one of the top 3 teams in the country could be tough. Stay tuned folks....

How would this work? Could this work for football? How would it affect the sport as a whole? Would it help or hurt college football? My first impression was that this was a stupid idea and that it would never work. But after thinking about it a little bit, it just might. It would just about eliminate the possibility of more than a couple undefeated teams each year. Which would in turn eliminate debate at the end of the season and the demand for a playoff system.
As far as scheduling, if each division had 8 teams, that would give each team 7 divisional opponents each season. Maybe add in 2 conference opponents from the other division and that still gives you a couple out of conference games each season to do with whatever a team wants to do. If you are Florida, it would probably be a couple cupcake teams out of the state of Florida.
Are the Super Conferences the future for college football? Whats your opinion of them?

Ladies and Gentleman....Mr. Austin Freeman. Incase Cardinal fans didn't know about the kid before this game, they certainly do now. He dropped 29 points on the Cardinals scoring from all over the floor. In the lane, from behind the arc and the free throw line. He didn't rack up the stats much elsewhere, but how could he? He was too busy scoring. Greg Monroe did happen to clean up with 14 boards and 5 assists and while helping Freeman out in the scoring department with 16 points.
Georgetown needed this win coming off two consecutive losses.

- No Surprise at #1 Roy Williams has won 2 National Titles
- Tom Izzo and Ben Howland have been nothing but consistent in the NCAA tournament
- Billy Donovan has had a rough past few years but won back to back National Titles
- Rick Pitino in at #7 proves he truly isn't washed up and is still a very good coach
- Bruce Pearl just barley makes the list by making 3 sweet 16's n the last 5 years, one with Milwaukee
- Coach John Calipari misses being on the list because of a stripped appearance in the National Title
- Coach K I think would normally be listed as a top 10 coach, just not based on his last 5 years in the ncaa tournament
He compared Rick to Steve Spurrier, which on some levels are similar, being that they both built powerhouse programs in the 90's and then jumped ship to try and prove they could do the same on a professional level. They both struggled in the pros and only lasted a few years before going back to coach the youngsters again. Where Mr. Jones went wrong was in his comparisons of the two after they landed back in college. Spurrier has hardly even sniffed a conference championship in the SEC, barely finds his Gamecocks in the Top 25 and has seen the likes of such bowls as the Independence Bowl, Liberty Bowl, Outback Bowl and PapaJohns.com Bowl which they have gone 1-3. Where Coach Pitino has lead his Louisville Cardinals to a Final 4, two Elite Eights and an overall #1 seed in 2009. I don't think the world Elite describes any teams that play in the Papa Johns.com Bowl.
Has Rick produced the same results he had with Kentucky in the 90's? No, but he was building a dynasty with a group of players who would have been either one & done's or players that would have jumped straight to the NBA in this day. Has he lived up to the full initial expectations of the cardinal fans....not fully, because we expected a championship by now. Though has he kept the fans happy by producing a top notch program for most years? Absolutely....where does Rick truly rank? Widespread Sports came up with that answer. Check Out our Top 10 NCAA College Basketball Coaches List.

I wish everyone would stop talking about Tiger Woods. How many different people can take different angles to say different things about the different ways Tiger Woods made his speech on Friday. Heres some journalism, he said he sorry. He thought he was invincible and could get away with anything. Is anyone surprised at this? It was what we thought it was. He cheated. He didnt deny any of the stories that had come out from any of the women. And he asked that one day we will all move on from his mistake. Well I have. All I care about now is his getting back on the golf course. And can I say to all the golfers who have publically came out and bashed Tiger, I would start praying now that your never paired up with him on a Sunday at any tournament because I'm sure you'll be embarrassed.
And your random sports news. America is completely dominating in the Olympics. They are leading the overall medal count, as well as the Gold medal count. A couple of the big surprises from the weekend were, the gold medal in Men's Figure Skating. I didnt see any of this but I do know that it wasnt expected. Bode Miller won Gold in the combined event. The biggest surprise came from the Men's Hockey team. That no one really expected to much from. But they are undefeated thus far, now have a bye to the quarter finals, and beat Home Team Canada last night 5-3. And trust me, coming the day before the 30 year anniversary of the Miracle on Ice. I think we all have heard "Do you Believe in Miracles" 1 to many times today. But all in all, it is pretty cool to see the Americans kick ass in Vancouver.

Kentucky entering their toughest stretch of the season, they'll need to really focus if they want to prove to the nation that they are made up of more then just a few one and done's paired with 1 good veteran, who can plow through a weak SEC conference. When (17)Vandy, (20)Tennessee and South Carolina are considered the tough part of your schedule it's hard to prove that point. Though it did help them by beating Mississippi State after being down late and rallying to show some resilience.
Samardo Samuels leads his cardinals up to Chicago to do battle with Big East bottom feeder DePaul. Yes, you heard that correct. This team has been looking for a leader since Terrence Williams got drafted to the Nets last June, and Samuels is the man for the job. Everyone has been waiting for him to step and take on that roll, but it seems sometimes he is reluctant. Weather he does it vocally or just on the court he needs to embrace and roll with it.
This is the definition of a "trap game" and the Cards. On the road at DePaul, one of the worst teams in the Big East. We've seen this before, and hopefully for Louisville fans the outcome won't be the same as the Madison Square Garden debacle. Catch the game on ESPN U @ 2pm.

Though Tiger read this statement rather than just going off his cuff. He did seem pretty contrite. Though he never really broke down and he continued to speak, look and act like a robot. He did break himself down in many ways taking full responsibility if his actions even saying he was selfish, he only thought about himself and he thought certain rules didn't apply to him.
Thursday, February 18, 2010
Later on that day, the news broke that Tiger Woods would FINALLY confront the public about the situation that took place nearly 3 MONTHS AGO. Its thought that he will apologize for his past and talk about his future in regards to his return to golf. Doesn't take much brain processes to break that story. My opinion is, even though its been criticized, that drawing this thing out for so long the storm has some what passed. And he will probably be welcomed back into the public eye with open arms. Honestly, I've moved on from the whole thing. I think most people just want to hear the details about all of the mess, not an apology. Which is sad. I'm not condoning what Tiger Woods did but I do think the media tried to exploit him for his mistakes. Which in my opinion is sad.
The best part of the night was one of the best basketball games I have seen this whole season. UofL and Notre Dame battled in an epic double overtime Big East matchup. Niether team wanted or could afford to lose this game. And that fact was evident from the tip off in the first half to the last play of the second overtime. The Fighting Irish showed me a ton of heart last night playing without their leader, Luke Harangody. But every player coming off the bench all night seemed to make a few plays to keep them in the game. As much as Notre Dame showed me last night, I was more impressed by the Cardinal team that persevered and came through with a win at the end of the game. A team that has had such a roller coaster ride throughout the season, took all the punchs and answered every time. This could easily be a team to be afraid of come March. They are not afraid anyone and always seem to play the really good teams close and if they learn to finish some of those games they could make a run.
My day ended with the Olympics. America's Sweetheart, Lindsey Vonn, stepped up with her bruised shin and won gold in the downhill competition yesterday. And pacing herself for a likely few more golds in her upcoming competitions. Next, I watched the man, myth that is Shaun White. I'm your average American that doesn't know squat about snowboarding competitions. But I understood the amazement you have to have when watching this guy compete. He is in a completely different atmosphere then the rest of the competition. He was "higher" and doing more flips and spins and rotations around the axis of a corkscrew than any of the other guys could begin to imagine. Needless to say he won gold, with both of his runs. Thoughts, if you haven't seen this guy in a "Half Pipe" before you need to. Its unreal.
Not bad for a Wednesday.
Wednesday Night was a true test for the Cards. Notre Damn always plays the cards hard, and even though Louisville is tied for 5th in the Big East, and Notre Dame10th, this would be the type of game the Cards would drop after a big win at Syracuse. The game was up and down, back and forth and left to right all night long. Nash and Cooley fouled out early for the Irish and by the end of regulation this game had already turned into a free throw fest before going to overtime.
Notre Dame just couldn't defend Samardo Samuels in the post. He would either score or get fouled and go to the line. Another Big time player in this game was Jarred Swopshire who is really starting to come around for the Cards. He played 38 minutes and was perfect from the free throw line (5-5) scored 12 points, grabbed 9 boards, and had 3 blocks.
At the end of the first overtime Samuels blocked a shot with 7 seconds left on the clock and Sosa threw up a half court shot that almost dropped in the bucket after hitting the rim. The game was extended to a second overtime and by the end both teams were running on fumes. The final seconds had the game tied and Notre Dame had the ball, but couldn't find the man in the post who was wide...or should I say WIDE open. The clock ran down to zero without the Irish even getting a shot off.
"We were not going to deviate from our offense tonight, If we were going to loose it, it wouldn't have been because we deviated from going insdie" said coach Pitino. Which is clearly obvious since Samardo wound up scoring 36 points. With 21 lead changes the game could have gone either way. "They could have folded about 5 times down 7, and they didn't do it." -Pitino
Wednesday, February 17, 2010
When the game clock struck 3:35 and Mississippi State was up by 5, you knew this was going to be tight all the way to the final buzzer. Mississippi State, just as I had predicted yesterday, was giving Kentucky fits. Even after the nations leading shot blocker Jarvis Varnado fouled out of the game, the dogs were still able to hang around thanks to point guard Dee Bost. The Cat's were not about to go quietly however. They closed the gap by 2 and when Kentucky had their final chance to tie up the game, the bulldogs were all over Cousins, making sure he wouldn't be able to work his post magic, though they didn't account for Patrick Patterson who drained a 15 foot jump shot to send the game to overtime.
This was Kentucky's chance to get an early jump on the dogs and put them away early....well that just wasn't the case. The Bulldogs battled and hung around until John Wall made his way up the lane like a blur and nailed a short jumper and got fouled, which wound up putting Kentucky up by three. On the next possession John Wall clearly got away with a goal tend which wasn't seen by any of the refs, and even though Mississippi State drained a later three point shot and took it all the way to the wire, they couldn't close the door on an upset over the #2 Kentucky Wildcats.
The end of the game resulted in water bottles and other debris being tossed on the floor while there was still time on the clock. A Dasani bottle came within just a few feet of hitting John Wall. (How about some advertising dollars Coca Cola for that plug) Fans of the Bulldogs should have been proud of their team for not only hanging in there with the Cats, but also giving them a run for their money taking them to overtime and almost coming up with a win. Even the Mississippi State players were disgusted with the fans throwing things. You make yourself look like pathetic, trashy, no class rednecks when you throw things onto the court....not to mention childish. When you come away a loser, just make sure you don't look like sore ones.

A few surprises arose this past weekend in the Big East. Staring out Sunday when unranked Louisville astounded the college basketball world and upset #3 Syracuse. Louisville had just blown a huge opportunity to beat a 2-8 in conference St. Johns team on the road, and they let the weaker opponent overtake and ultimately embarrass them. But Sunday they came out with a confidence that wouldn't allow Syracuse to prevail. The Orange has Georgetown next this Thursday.
Speaking of Georgetown 2nd to last place Rutgers wound up over taking The Hoyas in New Jersey. Jonathan Mitchell dropped 24 points while hitting 4 out of 6 three pointers. Despite shooting only 44% from the field Rutgers got enough opportunities by causing Georgetown to commit 14 turnovers, 5 of those coming from Greg Monroe. This Thursday The Hoyas have Syracuse coming into the Verizon center, both coming off losses....who's going to be the hungriest for a win?
With Syracuse taking a loss to Louisville, The Villanova Wildcats had their chance to claim sole ownership of first place in the conference. All they had to do was defeat U Conn at home....and they couldn't do it. It seemed Nova tried to Live by the 3 point shot, instead they died by it, by taking 24 three's during the game and only hitting 7. It also didn't help that U Conn out rebounded The Wildcats 40-29 with only 13 of those rebounds being offensive and eliminating 2nd chance point for Nova. The Wildcats have almost an entire week to prepare for their next opponent Pittsburgh.
It's coming down to it in the Big East and even though 3 of their top team took losses this past weekend, it just goes to show you show good the conference is overall. Can the teams like U Conn and Louisville win enough games to prove that they too belong in the discussion when march rolls around. They may have to show it in the conference tournament.

The bubblicious Cardinals head into the Carrier Dome today for what looks like it may be a pretty lopsided battle. After the Cards took an embarrassing beating at the hands of St. Johns this past week, who was 2-8 in conference, they now have to match up with one of the top teams in the country. Louisville looks like they are heading to the NIT, and most likely will. Though if a leader emerges and rally's the team together, they could pull of an amazing feat. They still have 2 remaining games vs Syracuse and a game against Georgetown. This is a BIG opportunity and allows some room to impress some people though they don't have any impressive wins thus far. These are some of the top teams in the country. If they can surprise....well EVERYONE in the nation and pull off 2 wins against these top teams they have remaining they could possibly wind up with a date to the dance. But it's a loooong shot at best.
