What does Clark Kellog do with the other 11 months of his year?
Props to Bobby Knight for suggesting that the NCAA switch from a 64 team field to a 128 team field. And you quit on Texas Tech to give us that? The next time I hear about Bobby Knight it better be because he’s throwing flower pots at one of ESPN’s 80 year-old secretaries.
Doesn’t Davidson’s unpredictable run make you realize how worthless the experts really are? Who would have thought Dell Curry’s son would have ever been the face of the tournament?
Is anyone else creeped out by that Chevy commercial where Howie Long drives around in his truck picking up strange dudes?
Is Lavance Fields from Pitt the 2008 Khalid El-Amin?
Is it just me or is Roy Williams orange? Either dude is drinking mad carrot juice or spending too much time in the tanning salon.
Duke is soft. Mad soft.
I probably shouldn’t say too much since Sean Singletary is graduating from UVa and we really don’t have anyone who could even come remotely close to filling one of his shoes. Except Lars, of course.
Is Psycho T the worst nickname ever given to an athlete? Pacman and He Hate Me both think that’s a terrible nickname.
After seeing Adam Morrison in the crowd at the Gonzaga game, would anyone be surprised if he was featured on To Catch a Predator someday?
The Subtlety Award of the 2008 NCAA Tournament goes to Viagra, as they featured a band playing with banjoes only to be upgraded to electric guitars after ingesting the magic pill. You’d have to be an English major to catch that symbolism. And a quick aside – why would dudes be popping Viagra if they’re just having a jam session in their garage? Actually, I don’t want the answer to that.
Does anyone know Drake guard Klayton Korver’s middle name (or at least middle initial)? He’s the lil’ bro of the Utah Jazz’s Kyle Korver. There’s two other Korver boys, Kaleb and Kirk, and the father is named Kevin. Does anyone see a pattern with the initials? And you thought Kyle Korver was just getting an early start on his ghost costume for Halloween.
After four No. 1 seeds made the Final Four, aren’t you wishing you didn’t try to predict all those upsets? On the bright side, although this year may be a little more boring than recent years, at least on paper we should get two really good games next weekend.
Is anyone else tired of the term “Cinderella” when referring to the underdogs that pull off a couple upsets? It’s time to put a moratorium on that word. Not only is it completely played out, but who wants to be compared to a Disney princess? Davidson should not be looked at as a “Cinderella” team because they’ve obviously been doing something right to get a 10 seed in the tournament. Now if a high school team starts knocking off UCLA and Kansas, then we can bring the term back.
And finally, here’s to no one asking each other in public “So, how’s your bracket?”
