Nostradamus Didn’t See VCU Coming

March Madness indeed. VCU vs Butler in the Final Four?! How did that happen? And how did two people in ESPN’s bracket contest actually forecast it? Anyway, I love it. I know some love the name brands, and I can go that way too, but an 8 seed vs an 11 for a spot in the championship game is one thing that makes the NCAA tourney so great, and what the BCS misses. David can bring down Goliath…

Kentucky vs  UConn brings those name brands to the other semifinal. I suppose it’s logical to think the winner’s coming out of this game, but what’s been logical so far? For the first time, no 1s or 2s in the Final Four…

I’m surprised at the minor Harrison Barnes hate still flowing out of our fine state. Yes, Team Barnes fumbled the announcement of where he was going to school—Cyclones felt misled and hurt, though I know that wasn’t the intent—and yes, Barnes left us for greener pastures, but who can blame him. He’s an actual student-athlete who just had a great NCAA tournament and represents Iowa with class…

I think Barnes needs to think long and hard before turning pro, and I’m sure he will. The NBA seems destined for the same lockout nonsense the NFL has going right now…

    This time of year I just like to point out the inconsistencies from people who think a single elimination tourney is some supremely fair and balanced and perfect way of picking a “champion.” Especially when you consider teams are picked and more importantly seeded by a largely anonymous group who answer to no one and provide absolutely no reasoning to justify their actions. In this respect the BCS seems like an open book in comparison.
