I have to confess this is my favorite week of the sports calendar.
By Sunday night, we will no longer have to guess which college basketball teams will be invited to the Big Dance, otherwise known as the NCAA Basketball Tournament.
It’s getting crazy at the top of the college basketball world. Ask Syracuse.
Despite the Vols choke job in Missouri Saturday, they will live to play again. They may have one foot in the grave after losing a game that was there for the taking, but they can even the score March 8 in the regular season finale for both teams.
You can tell college basketball’s season is coming to an end. Tempers are short, with coaches, players and now in Lubbock, Texas, with fans.
Things I liked:
I liked the way Seattle dominated Denver in every phase of the game. Going in with the best defense in the NFL this season, the Seahawks came in confident, playing the role of the underdog. While everyone in the media was fawning over the season Peyton Manning had, I imagine Seattle Coach Pete Carroll didn’t hesitate to frequently remind his players that Manning was the Super Bowl and they were just lambs being led to slaughter.
The buzzards are circling Thompson-Boling Arena. Saturday’s 67-41 loss at No. 6 Florida was the low point in Vols basketball coach Cuonzo Martin’s three seasons on the Hill.
The Titans have a new coach in Ken Whisenhunt, making it official last week.
Vanderbilt followed suit Saturday by introducing Derek Mason to replace James Franklin.
Time will tell but from what I can tell, both programs feel great about their hires. I would agree with them.
James Franklin loves him some James Franklin.
Now Penn State loves them some James Franklin.
Those Vanderbilt fans that hold a grudge against Franklin because he agreed to become Penn State’s football coach should get over it.
