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.
Today’s Rundown(Teams in bold are my personal bracket pick; teams in italics were supposed to lose in Round 1, but didn’t so I’ll pick them today)
Today’s Record: 4-4
Update(10:45PM): Kansas State rolls by BYU.
Update(10:40PM): Kentucky blows out Wake Forest, 90-60.
Update(8:00PM): #11 Washington is in commanding control of #3 New Mexico.
Update(7:58PM): Baylor handles Old Dominion.
Update(7:55PM): My bracket is now in the garbage.
Update(7:52PM): I can’t believe I’m about to report this, but my girlfriend(who has never watched basketball before) picked Northern Iowa over Kansas. At least one of us knows basketball.
The Yankees have made it clear that they will trade either Sergio Mitre or Chad Gaudin before Opening Day. The 5th Starter picture is somewhat vague, so these two are battling it out for a spot in the bullpen. So who should stay? Who should go? We’ll let’s look at last night’s results(6-2 Loss vs. Tampa Bay): continue reading…
We were able to bounce back yesterday as Xavier posted a first-round victory over Minnesota, 65-54. Today, we will pick another NCAA Tournament game to extend our streak to two.
The Matchup: 1:05 PM #10 Saint Mary’s Gaels vs. #2 Villanova Wildcats..
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…
As the Draft continues to draw closer, let’s take a look at another need on defense for Big Blue: depth at defensive tackle.
GM Jerry Reese has always been a big advocate of drafting positional value, and he loves strengthening the trenches. Defensive tackle is a big need – Fred Robbins is gone; Rocky Bernard was a bust in his first season with the Giants; Chris Canty barely played in 2009. With Robbins gone and questions surrounding Canty and Bernard, there is a big weakness in the front four. continue reading…
The New York Yankees defeated the Detroit Tigers today, 5-2.
CC Sabathia got the start for the Bombers as he struck out eight hitters over 5 1/3 innings. He only gave up two runs and scattered four hits.
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…
The New York Yankees defeated the Tampa Bay Rays, 6-4 yesterday. Here are some quick highlights of the game.
1. Pitcher Javier Vazquez started the game for the Yankees. Vazquez threw three solid innings, striking out three and only yielding one run(HR to Carlos Pena).
2. Pitchers Chan Ho Park and David Robertson each threw scoreless frames.
3. Derek Jeter went 2 for 3 with two RBIs.
4. Minor league outfield prospect, Colin Curtis hit a 3-run home run in the 6th inning to stake the Yankees to the lead. Fans will recall Curtis’ walk-off home run in the team’s first Spring Training game. He is an interesting prospect to monitor that could be called up in the future. 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…
