Thieves In The Temple?

    According to a joint statement from DraftKings and FanDuel: “Nothing is more important” than the “integrity of the games we offer.”
    Right, right.

Haven’t Totally Crashed & Burned, But…

TaShawn Thomas

Did we mention our UCLA friends said Doug Gottlieb could fuck himself? Didn’t think so.
Lost a finalist (Virginia, what were we thinking?) and another Final 4 pick (Iowa State). We drank the Kool-Aid on these 2. Shame on us, Mayor Fred Hoiberg, and what’s this about Tony Bennett being the Coach of the Year again?
Wichita State, though, has really done our brackets proud. And don’t get us started on our Sooners. Had them in the Sweet 16 but its all gravy now. Jeff Goodman picked them for his Final 4, and we knew he was smoking better shit than us.

Crown ‘Em

Louisville 82, Michigan 76
Worst officiated game of the tournament, but even that couldn’t distract from a superb contest. And the point was proven again that guards run the world.
Now what happened with that Fab 5 reunion?

‘The White Elephant In The Room…’

    Come on Chris.
    Jalen Rose makes some choice observations about why the Fab 5 has been mostly the Fab 4 since Chris Webber left the group, so to speak. We’re hoping though that Webber puts aside his differences with the Univ. of Michigan and join his brothers Monday night in Atlanta, where Michigan, with its talented freshmen and Trey Burke, will try to upset 4-point favorite Louisville for the national championship.
    Hit the link, scroll down and listen to the video. It’s a little more than 5 minutes but well worth your time.

Youth Is Served

      We became a big Mitch McGary fan today.
      Louisville already is a 3 1/2 to 4 1/2-point favorite. Should be a good 1 to watch.

Trojan Man: Now That’s A Lube Job

    Wonder if USC AD Pat Haden ever heard of Andy Enfield before the NCAA Tournament began? Regardless, despite the diss of a ton of L.A. coaches equally qualified for the gig, the Trojans made a bigger splash with this hire than UCLA’s lame move to to bring in Steve Alford.
