George Mason. Cinderella. Ten Years After.
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.
"Our brackets have culled out all of the superfluous information and reduced the [NCAA] tournament to what matters most: colors and logos."
March Madness is less than a month away, and sports fans are snapping up tickets to watch men’s and women’s NCAA basketball teams battle their way to the Final Four. Projected brackets are going online, with speculation about likely picks and the prospects of finding a Cinderella team in the field this year. Cheerleaders get their moment on screen before commercial breaks, but should these student athletes be considered members of a sports team, too? On court fashion generates debate, and mascots range from the obvious to the really odd. PETA continues its crusade against the use of live animals, but one overriding question remains: “What the hell is a Saluki?”
March Madness: 11th seeded George Mason upset UConn in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament this afternoon, continuing their unexpected streak of upsets. Their wins validate not only their inclusion in the tournament, but the rising status of mid-major conferences. The most prominent critic of the inclusion of these smaller schools has been CBS analyst Billy Packer, who verbally assaulted the head of the selection committee on live TV just two weeks ago, and has yet to apologize for his obvious error.
Who's this years favorite? Anyone want to guess who will win it all? Got that someone in the office that does better than the sports "know it all"? Let the bracket analysis, predictions, and of course trash talk commence for MADNESS!
Ready for a little MARCH MADNESS!? My school, Marquette, has finally made the NCAA! tourney. I say, let the Madness begin. See where else the top 64/5 are going to play and make your predictions now.
