Final-Four-Banner

 

Going into the Elite 8, three of my Final Four predictions and Kentucky (who I said would make it if they beat Wichita State) were still alive.  As it turns out, I went 1 for 4 (c’mon, give me 2 with that Kentucky call) as Florida, UConn, Wisconsin, and Kentucky cut down the nets in their respective regions.  I’m heading down to North Texas on Friday, so before I go I’d like to give you my predictions for the 3 remaining games.

After knocking off the UNC Tarheels to advance to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, Iowa State Coach Fred Hoiberg broke it down in the locker room… sorta. Read the rest of this entry »

Morgan Miller 4
If you were watching today’s NCAA tournament game between the University of Dayton  and Syracuse, you may have noticed a beautiful woman behind the Dayton bench that was getting a lot of face time.  That was Morgan Miller, wife of Dayton coach Archie Miller.  She was sporting a solid “Miller High Life” shirt that was altered to say “Dayton” High Life. Pretty clever.

There aren’t may picture of her floating around on the web other than a few from her twitter account and some other random screen caps. Either way, check em out and hopefully Dayton’s Cinderella run can continue.

2 weeks ago, SMU was ranked 18th in the nation and seemed destined for their first trip to the NCAA tournament in over 20 years.  After ending the season on a 3 game losing streak, though, Larry Brown’s squad will have to settle for the NIT.  They’re the only real snub I see not in the tournament this year.  Some will say Green Bay at 24-6 deserved an at-large bid, but they didn’t really beat anyone worth talking about all year.

Looking at the brackets, it’s possible we’ll see a 9 seed in the Final Four.  Here is my list of the probable Cinderella’s in this years NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament: Read the rest of this entry »

Marcus Smart

After losing 7 games in a row, 3 of which occurred during Marcus Smart’s suspension, the Oklahoma State Cowboys seemed destined for the NIT.  With pretty much no statement wins (split with Memphis) and a 16-10 record, they seemed to be toast.  Then they blew out Texas Tech in Marcus Smart’s return.  Then TCU.  And last night, the Cowboys got their marquee win as they stunned #5 Kansas.  Take them off the bubble, the Cowboys are going dancing.

Tyler Ennis

Behold exhibit 8,591,459 of the NCAA profiting off of college athletes while the students themselves get nothing in return.  Darren Rovell retweeted an image of t-shirts being sold at the Carrier Dome and University bookstores in Syracuse that blatantly reference star freshman point guard, Tyler Ennis from Canada.  Read the rest of this entry »

Earlier today, I had a chance to speak with former George quarterback and future NFL player Aaron Murray about his years in Athens, his girlfriend, and the upcoming NFL Draft.

Aaron has teamed up with Gillette in the “Pressure Points” campaign. “Pressure Points” is an eight-installment web series that gives sports fans a behind-the-scenes look as Aaron Murray prepares for the NFL Combine and Draft  and the physical and mental stress they endure.

From speaking with Aaron, he seemed like a really cool guy, and we here at TSB wish him the best as he moves forward with his professional football career. Check out the full interview after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

NFL defensive line prospect Michael Sam has come out and said that he is gay in an interview with ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” on Sunday. Sam is eligible for the NFL Draft this May and is projected to go as high as the third round. If drafted, he could be the first ever openly gay NFL player. Sam is fully aware of how big of a deal it is for him to come out publicly. No one has ever done this before, so for him to be the first, that takes guts. He is basically saying I’m an All-American defensive lineman, the Associated Press’ SEC Defensive Player of the Year and I’m gay. Take it or leave it. The NFL and the players need to accept Michael Sam for who he is because he is just like everyone else in the NFL.
