WHAT about those BRACKETS, SANDY? WELL, KANSAS got HOSED…

Yes, whatever I can call it – the NCAA BB tourney (men’s and women’s [Go Green Bay Phoenix and Notre Dame!]) is in full swing.  I tried to get Liberty the win but they fell short last evening. I found a great show that features two of my favorite sportswriters:  Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon […]

A PROPOSAL in re OLYMPICS: HAVE A PROFESSIONAL and AMATEUR DIVISION for sports such as BASKETBALL!

I am still concerned about the Olympic Games.  I have not backed off a bit:  It’s still sports imperialism to have pro athletes at the Games because not every nation can field a professional team or train pro athletes in sports like tennis.  But I realize that the IOC, the USOC and the moneyed interests […]

MORE BRACKET Musings after SELECTION SUNDAY. I WOULD HAVE SELECTED…

…teams like Oral Roberts (I am suspicious of how schools like Oral Roberts and Liberty are treated after the infamous selection of the undefeated Liberty women to be a 16th seed several years ago.), Drexel and perhaps Nevada over Texas, South Florida and maybe NC State.  As the announcer said on the selection show yesterday, […]

I’LL SAY it AGAIN! BOTH the REGULAR SEASON and TOURNEY winner in EACH conference should get a BID to the NCAA TOURNAMENT!

It must be that time of year again:  Sandy rants about how the NCAA field is not fairly selected.  Well, it still isn’t! I have suggested that Division I coaches and ADs should NOT select the NCAA field but rather Division II and III coaches and ADs.  Yes, I know they have to leave the […]

COACH CALIPARI’S SUPER CONFERENCES PROPOSAL WILL DESTROY THE NCAA! GOOD!

If you had said I would agree with Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari in the next year or maybe ever, I’d say sure – when a six mile asteroid (sufficient to kill the dinosaurs) hits the Earth! You better look up.  The sky is falling. Coach Calipari wants to have the leading 64 or 72 […]

WOULD THIS BE BUTLER’S FIRST NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP OR NOT?

1924 was a great year.  My legal hero, John W. Davis was nominated for President (only time I’d voted Democrat) but was crushed in November by another great President, Calvin Coolidge.  Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams ran to Olympic glory and gold (and Liddell glorified Christ by not running on the Sabbath).  The Macy’s Thanksgiving […]

DIVISION I COACHES AND ADs OUGHT NOT SELECT THE NCAA TOURNEY FIELD!

I’m going to do my yearly NCAA tournament rant; it was good for Rick Santilli, maybe the result will be a real change this time. This is a fascinating article in regard to the extreme effort that the ten selection committee members have in making sure their choices are legitimate, quality, justifiable bracket picks.  Should […]

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
