When it's not March but you still want the Madness

The NCAA On Demand You Tube Channel features the NCAA Vault, which houses the complete game broadcasts of dozens of NCAA tournament games from as far back as 1976 up through 2011. Jimmy V's NC State team defeats Phi Slamma Jamma, some freshman named Michael Jordan sinks the game winner, Bird vs. Magic, Christian Laettner steps all over Kentucky, etc., etc. Lots of shining moments in there.

Thanks for these links. Can't wait to start going through some of these games of my youth. Saw Mike Jordan play 6 times in college and was at the ACC championship game the year Jimmy Valavano's Wolfpack team led by Wittenburg and Lowe beat my Wahoos.

It is also good to see they are giving away free access to these games. Typically, the NCAA tries to make money on everything they do.

Free to you doesn't mean the NCAA isn't making money on it. The real surprise for me would be whether Jordan, Laettner, et al are making any money on it. That's what really offends the NCAA.

Having gone in and watched (again) the last 15 seconds of the 2007 Sweet Sixteen Vandy vs Georgetown game, I'm now going to step outside and destroy something. How do you not call that walk on Jeff Green? Grrrrrr
