NCAAM Top 25 Update, Recap and Perspectives, Wednesday, 12-4-19:

NCAAM Top 25 Update:

  • Buckeyes use a bodacious second half to stomp on the terrorized Tar Heels at Chapel Hill. Has UNC ever looked more overrated?
  • Virginia dreams of a repeat championship season look pretty far fetched, after they’re left for dead (with good reason) in West Lafayette. #Cavaliers #Boilermakers
  • Notre Dame looked pretty lame tonight in another game that went poorly for the ACC. Jalen Smith has led MD to one of its best starts ever. #FightingIrish #Terrapins

NCAAM Top 25 Update, Recap and Perspectives, Tuesday, 11-26-19:

NCAAM Top 25 Update:

  • What the “F” … as in Stephen F. Austin, which shocks the almighty Blue Devils to the delight of most of the known basketball world … outside of Cameron Indoor. #BlueDevils #Lumberjacks
  • Rough and tough Buffs trail at half, but catch Tigers by the tail and pull ahead at the finish. #Tigers #Buffaloes
  • Butler is enshrined as best in this year’s Hall of Fame tourney with a razor thin margin of win against stammering Stanford. #Cardinal #Bulldogs

NCAAM Top 25 Update, Recap and Perspectives, Tuesday, 11-12-19:

NCAAM Top 25 Update:
  • Guffaws all around the world of college b-ball as Evansville has the winning hand in Lexington. Poor Coach Cal is nothing more than apoplectic after this hideous smack in the face from the Purple Aces. Rupp is most certainly throwing up in his grave, and Joe B. Hall is nothing less than appalled. Wow~ #Wildcats #PurpleAces
  • It’s comedy central time as Central Arkansas’ Bears are beaten senseless and left stammering at Cameron. #Bears #BlueDevils
  • Missouri sputters through a miserable OT and leaves Xavier quite exasperated. #Musketeers #Tigers
  • Way up there in the land of the Puritans, UMass enjoys an early feast at the expense of their Huskie brethren from the North East. #Huskies #Minutemen
  • Pitt performs a perfect hit and run on Robert Morris in Moon Township, and gets away with it. #Panthers #Colonials

NCAAM Update:

  • Who’s on top in College Basketball? The Hoos, that’s who ….UVa plays bigger than most people ever dreamed, and beats a very physical and imposing group of Red Raiders by challenging them on the inside, something Mich St. and Kansas never dreamed of doing. And the future certainly looks beautiful for De’Andre and his majestic wingspan. #RedRaiders #Cavaliers

NCAAM Update (Final Four):

  • A shocked and appalled Izzo watches as team gets “Mooned” by Matt and traumatized by Tariq. It was quite interesting to see the rough and tumble Spartans turned into puppy children by the stout interior defense of Texas Tech, which invaded the personal space of Cassius with alarming regularity. Tom forgot the age old rule about how to deal with a bully … you have to go at them head on and force the issue if you hope to get anywhere … particularly if you don’t have much outside shooting. But by the time Mich St. started to generate some repeat points in the paint, the clock had painted them into a hopeless corner. They’re loving it in Lubbock, as the Red Raiders are on a rampage to glory.   #RedRaiders #Spartans
  • Auburn thought it had regained the eye of the Tiger just in time, but a blown call, a brain fart turned three foul shots and a Guy with ice water in this veins propels Virgnia to its NCAA final. Yes, these worthy Wahoos have show uncommon valor for guys from the Commonwealth, and they’ll need every ounce of that to get back the very imposing Red Raiders. #Tigers #Cavaliers

NCAAM Update (Elite Eight, Day 2):

  • Cassius and the Spartan legions behead the bracket darlings from Duke and their baby brute Zion. #Spartans #BlueDevils
  • Kentucky failed to put the Tigers away early, and this oversight costs them mightily, as Auburn digs in with its teeth to the Wildcat tail and never lets go. They were just too fast, too careful with the ball, and too determined, to lose. #Tigers #Wildcats

NCAAM Update (Elite Eight — Day 1):

  • The Carsen show tonight was quite entertaining, but the more important development turned out to be that the Cavs move on by relying on their offense, with potentially huge break out games from stars Mamadu, De’Andre and Guy. For many skeptics, this game was a warning that UVa does indeed have a path to the title. #Boilermakers #Cavaliers
  • Another futile attempt by Few in the NCAA ends in crushing defeat as the Red Raiders carry the mantle of the Big 12 with pride on their side. The going got a bit too physical and rough for the Bulldogs, who looked intimidated and flustered when they took the ball into the land of the TT trees. #RedRaider #Bulldogs

NCAAM Update (Sweet Sixteen, Day 2):

  • It took a real Herro to lead UK past little Corey Davis and his tribute-to-John Stockton short shorts. Houston battled impressively, but in the end just couldn’t execute … and got executed. #Cougars #Wildcats
  • It’s another wild and woolly finish for the Devils, as Va Tech comes up empty from point black range; you just can’t cover Zion with one (or two) guys, so maybe the only answer is a capitulation zone. Don’t look for any such strategery from Tom Izzo, which suggest it’s going to be another trip for Duke to the Final Four. #BlueDevils #Hokies
  • North Carolina gets beat to a crisp at its own game, as beyond hot Auburn heats up in the 2nd half, and there’s simply no way to hold them Tigers. Don’t try to grab the tail, Roy, … you’ll get dizzy. #Tigers #TarHeels
  • Hard working Michigan State bullies its way past a surprisingly passive LSU, setting up another daunting task for the Spartans, as they ready to face their perennial nemesis Duke. #Tigers #Spartans

NCAAM Update (with a Danish translation):

  • Turner turns into Edwards at the wrong time, and victory turns to tie and then to defeat for the vanquished Vols. Give the Boilers lots of credit for keeping their focus in OT, running better offensive schemes and doing a better job going for the jugular. Sorry Tennessee, but as you can see, in the Sweet Sixteen it’s either execute, or get executed. #Boilermakers #Volunteers
  • Turner bliver til edwards på det forkerte tidspunkt, og sejren bliver til slips og derefter til at besejre for den besejrede bind. Giv den masser af kredit for at holde deres fokus i ot, løbe bedre offensive ordninger og gøre et bedre job, der går for struben. Undskyld tennessee, men som du kan se, i de søde seksten er det enten at henrette, eller blive henrettet. #fuld #frivillige

Sorry Tennessee, but as you can see, in the Sweet Sixteen it’s either execute, or get executed. #Boilermakers #Volunteers
  • Ugly Duck offense goes into catatonic spasm for the last 5 minutes against a UVa team that falls back on their old reliable friend … a slap-happy, sturdy defense. Memo to Tony: come up with some better plays (you’ll definitely need it against powerful Purdue). #Cavaliers #Ducks
  • UM gets flattened by the wrecking crew that is Texas Tech, finding their reservoir of transition lay-ins and drives at the bucket completely dried up in the face of an extremely lanky lad from Lubbock. #Wolverines #RedRaiders
  • The saga of this year’s Gonzaga continues unabated, as even a larger than life Christ figure cannot save his Seminole brothers from an unholy exit. FSU’s offense sputtered consistently, getting some tasty shake and bake from T. Forrest and not much else. The Zags appear to be on a crash course with the Big 12 Champs, and that should be a battle royale. #Seminoles #Bulldogs
  • Unfortunately for UT, they found themselves in Haarms’ way today, and that’s one dangerous jib to navigate.

NCAAM Update (2nd Round):

  • Oregon now has its Ducks in a row for plans to go much farther in the tournament.  They match up very well with No. 1 seed Virginia in the next round. #Ducks #Anteaters
  • It’s Blackburg over Lynchburg in San Jose. #Flames #Hokies
  • Other than Kaleb Wesson, who was more equipped to throw the discus, the Bucks were completely unprepared for today’s track meet with the Cougars. You had better be ready with your game faces on, Kentucky. #Cougars #Buckeyes
  • UVA shrugs off a horrific game from supposed big gun K. Guy, and slides by the inept Sooners. Yes, the Cavaliers got enough done on the inside, thanks to an inspired game from their Rodmanesque spark plug Diakite, and they appear to have a rather cushy draw in the next round; however, one has to wonder how this smallish squad, which sports 4 guards in its starting lineup, will be able to measure up to an imposing Purdue or even Tennessee when and if they hit the Sweet 16. #Sooners #Cavaliers
  • Hawkeyes go into their habitual coma to start the game, engineer a miraculous about face to tie things up at the end of regulation, and then do an extended blink, which sinks them in OT. #Volunteers #Hawkeyes
  • Bulls get neutered by the length and utterly stifling defense of Lubbock’s overgrown Red Raiders. Hard way for the season to end for a Buffalo team that mastered the Mid-American, but was clearly out of its league against the best of the Big 12. #Bulls #RedRaiders
  • Tar Heels had the magic feel today and kick sluggish Huskies to the curb with a relatively routine thrashing, overwhelming their opponent with speed, size and a beautifully balanced attack. #Huskies #TarHeels
  • No Tacko, no box out on the free throw, no victory for the Knights. Brackets remain in tact; however, Duke shows it is vulnerable. #Knights #BlueDevils

NCAAM Update (2nd Round):

  • How bout those Auburn Tigers? They’re Grrrrrrrreat, and had less trouble than many expected sprinting by lumbering Kansas. #Tigers #Jayhawks
  • Kill Vill was playing tonight in Hartford, with Carsen Edwards doing a perfect job as supporting actor. And unfortunately for the defending champion Wildcats, Phil did not emerge from his booth wearing his Superman cape. #Wildcats #Boilermakers
  • Minnesota dutifully defers to its Big 10 tormentor Michigan St., playing without focus, attention to detail and any discernible game plan on offense. #GoldenGophers #Spartans
  • No sag in the step of the Zags as they overwhelm the befuddled Bears. #Bears #Bulldogs
  • In a very stately pitched battle, the pride of Tallahassee murders Murray with an embarrassment of athleticism. #Racers #Seminoles
  • Michigan manufactures a rather unsightly win over the Gators, who threw up enough bricks to protect small sections of our Southern border. #Michigan #Gators
  • UK dogs Terrier Fletcher into a nothing for a dozen nightmare from 3-pt land, making Wofford fans wretch in the process. #Terriers #Wildcats
  • Turtles left stranded on the roadside and without a ride in J-ville as Waters seeps to the basket and sinks the clincher. Basketball Bengals look hungry and dangerous as they wait for Michigan State. #Terrapins #Tigers

                                            Iowa St.’s far-fetched dreams go up in smoke

NCAAM Update (First Round):

  • Buckeyes bully their way to a very hard earned win over a self destructing Cyclones squad that sees another quality year go up in smoke. Bad loss for a team that seemed poised to do a lot more, and much of the blame lays on a coaching staff that never bothered to make simple defensive adjustments to secure the boards and limit OSU possessions. #Buckeyes #Cyclones
  • Suffocating defense paints Saint Louis into a corner, and let’s get real, there was no way the fundamentally sound Hokies were choking a 22 point 2nd half lead. #Bilikens #Hokies
  • Bulldogs make it a daily double of Mississippi teams to leave the tournament with some serious egg on their faces after getting burned by the Liberty Flames. #Flames #Bulldogs
  • Rams fall to a very scary 7 ft. 6 Tacko. #Knights #Rams
  • The scrappers from Iona somehow had more than an iota of a chance coming out of halftime (with a 5-point lead), but Roy’s boys had too much talent and exploded for a devastating trip down route 55. #Gaels #TarHeels
  • When the hell raisers from Houston met up with the Panthers, their high octane attack left Georgia State in a state of disarray. #Panthers #Cougars
  • Dukies unveil a highlight-reel of snazzy moves to bypass the undersized Bison. #Bison #BlueDevils
  • Somewhat overlooked Huskies earn braggin rights against Aggies. #Huskies #Aggies
  • After running into red hot Oregon, the big red Ws are officially gone. #Ducks #Badgers
  • No bull here — Buffalo is a legit threat to win it all. As for ASU, save that weak stuff for the PAC-16. #Bulls #Devils
  • Suspect Cavaliers use some 2nd half soul searching to find their cojones and escape the clutches of mighty mouse, Gardner-Webb. #Bulldogs #Cavaliers
  • Somewhat tenuous halftime lead holds up for Tenn; they’ll need to be a lot sharper next round. #Raiders #Volunteers
