Brackets are officially shot !!!
Just watched Florida St. shoot down my pick to win it all , so my brackets( picked Notre Dame in all ) are officially shot. I won't win the KATV bracket pool again, but I can't think of a tournament that didn't include the Hogs that I've enjoyed more. I have taken full advantage of the new 4 network approach. I've been going from game to game all weekend, and most have been highly entertaining. I do want to suggest a couple of rules changes. Number one : You have 10 seconds to cross center court , and can't be bailed out by calling a timeout. As it stands now, if you call a timeout , they reset the count to zero. Number two: If you call a timeout in the last two minutes of regulation or overtime, you get the option of inbounding the ball in front court. It would make for more great finishes.
The Anderson Watch
I guess we all missed a press conference Today in Fayetteville. This is Chris Lincoln's tweet from last night. Chris is the sports director at KTUL in Tulsa. He calls me all the time to get Travs and Hogs stuff, but never called me about this.
"Reports out of Arkansas say Mizzou coach Mike Anderson to be introduced tomorrow in Fayetteville as Razorbacks new head basketball coach."
The madness continued today. Mike Irwin of KFSM said sources are telling them that Anderson is looking over a 5 year, 10 million dollar deal, but Hawgs Illustrated sources say that report is bogus. I like Mike, but I've become a big Buzz Williams fan over the last couple of weeks. Anderson, Buzz Williams, Brad Stevens of Butler , Josh Pastner of Memphis... I like them all.
Congrats to Foley's Trojans !!
What a 2 year run !! Back to back NCAA tourney runs. They almost made it back to back first round upsets Today. Proud of the way Chastity Reed performed when UALR needed her. What a post season for UALR hoops !!!
