Times are changing in college football, and three different conferences are going to feature severe ramifications. The entire state of the Big 12 rests on the University of Nebraska’s shoulders, and what they decide will change the Big 10, Big 12, and Pac 10 like nothing college football has seen before.

Individually, I did a little better yesterday than I did on Thursday. I went 12-4 on Friday and have seemed to pick the opposite winner in every ‘5 vs. 12’ match-up with the exception of Michigan State.

So our first day did not go so well. I finished with an embarrassing 8-8 record. Before today’s action begins, let’s just reflect on the fact the nation’s best conference(The Big East) should have went 0-4 yesterday. Villanova got bailed out by the referees in OT, Georgetown forgot to show up, Marquette stopped playing defense, and Notre Dame choked like usual. We’ll see what today holds for the other Big East teams in the field(Syracuse, West Virginia, Louisville). Let the Madness begin…Updates all day……

Today’s Record: 12-4

Update (12:40AM): Maryland takes care of Houston to give us a solid 12-4 record on Day 2. Thanks for following, check back in tomorrow afternoon for coverage of Round 2! continue reading…

Day 1 of the NCAA tournament couldn’t have gone worse for what many believe is/was the best conference in College Basketball. Big East teams went a combined 1-3 yesterday, with their sole win being a 2 over a 15. This has to have Syracuse and other Big East teams playing today at least a little bit concerned. continue reading…

Notre Dame lost a close one yesterday, 51-50 to Old Dominion. Tough way for the ND Seniors to close out their collegiate careers.

Today, we look to another NCAA Tournament game to get a win.

The Matchup: 12:25 PM #11 Minnesota Golden Gophers vs. #6 Xavier Musketeers continue reading…
