NCAAM Update: Bulldogs lift their legs high enough to clear the Hahvaahd hurdle

NCAAM Update:

  • Dogged and determined Bulldogs lift their legs high enough to clear the Hahvaahd hurdle, and matriculate as Ivy rep to the big show. This team has the potential to turn your bracket upside down and inside out. #Bulldogs #Crimson
  • Sheep in Wolverines’ clothing wilt in the face of second half Spartan onslaught. #Wolverines #Spartans
  • Here’s a Pearl of wisdom: Bruce’s Tigers have just begun to feed. #Tigers #Volunteers

Lamonte certainly dropped the big one today on UK…

NCAAM Update:

  • My how the worm has turned in the SEC, as Tennessee’s Lamonte drops the big one on the Wildcats from beyond the arc in the closing seconds. Rick Barnes has these Vols believing in themselves, and that’s big news for a program that has habitually disappointed come crunch time. #Volunteers #Wildcats
  • Well not exactly, but college basketball’s version of the New England Patriots just keeps annoying everyone outside of Durham by doing what Duke always seems to do … that is winning. This year’s grunt work is being done by a very talented squad, led by a man-child, with Wes Unseld’s girth in the shoulders and derriere, Kobe’s competitiveness and a combination of power and speed that brings to mind a young LeBron. Good luck taking these guys down at the Big Dance. #BlueDevils #Seminoles
  • Spartans back up there No. 1 seeding by beating up the Badgers, and get set for another Michigan grudge match. #Badgers #Spartans
  • We haven’t seen a cyclone this destructive blow through Kansas since the days of Dorothy. This KU team just doesn look that lethal … even for 1 or 2 rounds. #Cyclones #Jayhawks
  • Wolverines send the Gophers out to fetch the cleaning, make some copies, and then give them the rest of the day off. As we all suspected, those overachieving rodents had no business doing battle with powerful Michigan. #GoldenGophers #Wolverines
  • Kelvin Sampson has his Cougs in the groove as they walk off with the AAC Conf title and get ready to improve on last year’s near miss effort. This team is talented and ready to do more damage to the egos of the power conference big boys. #Tigers #Cougars
  • Not too many teams are equipped to run with these Bulls. Maybe the college team can do what no pro sports team has ever done for the long suffering city of Buffalo. #Bulls #GreenFalcons

NCAAM Update, Recap and Perspectives: Friday, 3-15-19 (Bob Marley style)

NCAAM Update:

  • Not time to say “Au Revoir” to these gophers. Minnesota stirs things up in the Big 10 by reverse engineering the Boilermakers. #Boilermakers #GoldenGophers
  • Officially dethroned, KU hopes to be signing a redemption song in the Big 12 final against Iowa State. #Jayhawks #Mountaineers
  • Roy and UNC take a serious fall after all that beautiful jammin by Duke’s Mt. Zion. #BlueDevils #TarHeels
  • Buffalo Soldiers outlast the Chippewas. #Chippewas #Bulls
  • Up by half a dozen at the half, the studly Spartans make it stand up. #Buckeyes #Spartans
  • Could you be loved less if you were 30-2 Hou? Probably not, but they display some serious hubris in dismembering the Huskies. #Huskies #Cougars
  • Virginia continues to wait in vain for regular season accomplishments to have any real post-season relevance. #Cavaliers #Seminoles

Timid turtles stay buried in the trenches against Herbie’s henchmen.

NCAAM Update:

— Syracuse was in for a very bumpy ride, as the ACC Tournament enters the Land of Zion, and Williamson’s Dukies will their way forward with a methodical beat down of The Orange. #BlueDevils #Orange

— Given their very reliable history of flaming out in the Tournament, this year’s streaking Wahoo’s would be well advised to take the latest run with a grain of salt; in time meantime, they’re very happy their Salty center is hitting his stride offensively. #Cavaliers #Wolfpack

— Make a mental note of this next week, when MD swaggers in with a top 6 seed; good luck flipping the switch/looks like some of the Terps’ connection are short circuiting under pressure. #Cornhuskers #Terrapins

Maybe its a good thing to run with a Wuffpack …

NCAAM Update:

  • Clemson chokes away a huge lead to the Wuffpack, and is left to ponder its post-season fate sitting on that proverbial, protruding bubble. #Tigers #Wolfpack
  • Nobody could possibly have a bone to pick with that marvel of modern defensive schemes, the Syracuse Zone, as well as Boehim’s big decision to adopt the Buddy system. #Orange #Panthers
  • It would be a cardinal sin to underestimate the Cardinals come tournament time. #Cardinals #FightingIrish

Bushwood — Where Golden Gophers go to lick their wounds…

NCAAM Update:

  • Terps finally stick their heads out of the shell, and send the Gophers scurrying back to Bushwood with an expected, but still important, win. #GoldenGophers #Terrapins
  • Buff mow down Bowling Green and looks plenty mean for a Mid-American champion. #Bulls #Falcons
  • Va Tech’s now shoe-in for the tournament, while Miami may not even be on the NIT bubble. #Hurricanes #Hokies

Another “Shoe”-related mess in college basketball engulfs the big boys …

NCAAM Update:

  • Yikes! Shock and awful grimacing in Durham, as the Zionic man blows out his Nikes. #TarHeels #BlueDevils
  • Sweet revenge is a long time coming for Pat Ewing, against the team that broke his heart. #Wildcats #Hoyas
  • This looks like a classic sleeper of a squad biding their time in Syracuse; watch out for this team to do what Boeheim is known for … getting into that mesmerizing zone, and grinding out ugly, but effective, victories over soft favorites. #Cardinals #Orange

Beilein makes a bee line for the locker room

NCAA Update:

  • Puke: another impressive as hell ACC road win for Duke…#BlueDevils #Cardinals
  • Michigan lacks staying power against pesky Penn St. when Beilein is stung with an ejection. #Wolverines #Nittany Lions
  • Kentucky caves in to Kavell at the buzzer. #Tigers #Wildcats
  • A very lean (and mean) Cassius guides the Spartans as they stick it to the Badgers in Madison. #Spartans #Badgers
  • 25 years or so after UM’s Jalen Rose, another Jalen rose to the challenge at another UM as Boilermaker bubbles evaporate late against the Terps. #Terrapins #Boilermakers

Jayhawks turn into chicken hawks in Austin

NCAA Update:

  • Jayhawkers play like chicken hawks, getting taken down by Roach and the Horns. #Jayhawks #Longhorns
  • Commodores are real bores in wipe out loss to the Cats. #Wildcats #Commodores
  • Bo knows how to go on the road in the Big 10 and get a big win. #Badgers #Cornhuskers
  • Who knows … maybe the new Admiral will make us forget about the old Admiral, and he’s got his friends in Tennessee seeing an SEC title. #Volunteers #Gamecocks
  • In a game that ABBA certainly would’ve been singing about, Maryland’s Fernando got the Twerp mobile out of park in College Park. Way to go, Bruno! #Terrapins #Wildcats

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Championship Game: Monday, 4-2 (click post for audio)

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Championship Game:

  • Like clockwork, the Wolverines are left betwixt and between an unforgiving rock and a hard place, having to face judgement day against Jay, and end up Villanova’s latest victim. The Wildcats were certainly never tamed in this year’s tournament, and chomped through their competition in one of the most lopsided romps of all times. At least Michigan had someone on their side name Muhammed Ali…. #Wolverines #Villanova

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Final Four: Saturday, 3-31 (click post for audio)

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Final Four:

  • It took a while, but Michigan finally figured out you can’t cover Moe Buckets with a muppet. When the dust had cleared, Sister Jean cleaned out her locker early, and her wheelchair was seen leaving the Alamodome for home … with some serious skid marks. #Ramblers #Wolverines
  • On the second day of Passover, Paschall and friends made sure that Kansas went out meekly like the Seder plate’s paschal lamb…. as in dead on arrival. In every sense of the word, the Wildcats grabbed this National Semi-final game by the throat and never let up on the pressure. It was a complete and utter demolition, and proof positive that Jay’s guys indeed have the Wright stuff. #Jayhawks #Wildcats

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Elite Eight: Sunday, 3-25 (click post for audio)

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Elite Eight:

  • Duke had KU right where they wanted them, when the Kansas big man
    ‎Udoka Azubuike sat down with 4 fouls mid-way through the 4th quarter; that was when Duke needed to make its move/stretch its lead, … but that is not what happened. And now, San Antonio is saying hello to Newman and the Jayhawks.Exactly what went wrong for the Blue Devils? Yes, they put their trust at the end in Grayson Allen, who tried an off-balance bank shot that clanked out. A better choice would’ve been to go in to Bagley, who was consistently getting the shots he wanted or perhaps setting up a play for Duval or Trent. However, the bigger mistake was that 2-3 zone, which never stopped Kansas from getting the open shots it wanted, including the 3 that sent the game into OT. For whatever reason, Coach K did not trust that his guys could carry off a man-to-man approach.

    Villanova doesn’t play that way and won’t make that kind of mistake, so we should be in for one heck of game in the final four . #BlueDevils #Jayhawks

  • Rabble of Red Raiders didn’t look quite ready to rumble with the Cats from “Nova. This game shows that the No. 1 overall seed can win ugly, and has a tough-as-nails defense to go with their often ostentatious offense. They’ll certainly need this intensity if they hope to topple Kansas in the next round. #RedRaiders #Wildcats

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Elite Eight:

  • It certainly wasn’t pretty, or even girl-next-door easy on the eyes, but the Wolverines cleaned up from the foul line and forced their way into the Final Four by sneaking past the colder than cold shooting Seminoles. Hey Moe! You were no stooge, coming up with a dozen huge points and defending the honor of the Maize and Blue on the board against the legions of Leonard. But let’s be clear … Beelein’s blue had better be sharper if they hope to stop the big Mo of Loyola of Chicago. #Wolverine #Seminoles
  • Cinderella’s wearing the ruby slippers at this year’s big dance, and she ‘aint from Kansas… no she’s from C-town, and she’s on a mission from God to bring the title back after a 55 year hiatus. Ramblers grill Weber’s Wildcats to a fine crisp and move on to the Final Four. #Ramblers #Wildcats

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Sweet Sixteen: Friday, 3-23 (click post for audio)

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Update — Sweet Sixteen:

  • Duke looked a bit sleepy at times, but got to work by going right over the top of the Syracuse zone, with lots of lobs snagged by Bags, and points when it counted from the other starters. Give the Orange serious credit for fighting hard, but they needed to be more perfect from the line and couldn’t afford to lose the battle of the boards. #Orange #BlueDevils
  • West Virginia pushed all its usual buttons, but Villanova wasn’t about to be controlled in an intense, pitched battle. The difference — Wildcat execution on the offensive end, which is where the Mountaineers usually shoot themselves in the foot. #Mountaineers #Wildcats
  • Jayhawks followed their recent blueprint to perfection — racing to a lead and then holding on for dear life. That worked today, in a virtual home game against the very spunky Clemson Tigers, but KU will need to show more poise against the boys from Durham. #Jayhawks #Tigers
  • Yet another year when Texas Tech, or someone else, wrecks the party for poor Purdue. #Boilermakers #RedRaiders
