Mercer beats Duke and Roddy White won’t honor bet he loses

Roddy White is great on Twitter but every now and then, he tweets something that he may regret. He promised a fan that he would get him season tickets if Mercer beats Duke.

And that’s exactly what happened.

Sadly, White has decided to not honor his promise.

Yesterday was the best first day of March Madness

Upsets. 12th seeds beating 5th seeds. Four overtime games. Close finishes. My bracket went 14-2 while everyone else did worse.

What a great day! I don’t know if I have ever gone through a first day of so much drama ever watching.

Seriously, this is the best playoff system in American sports. So good. So so good!

This is how I pick a perfect bracket

If you haven’t joined, you still have some time.

I will reveal to you my formula for a winning bracket. Success rate for this formula is not very high. But because of my own personal bias, I believe what I am doing is right.

Here are my beliefs, philosophies and strategies to a perfect bracket. Not fool-proof, but I’m sticking with it.

Adidas got what they deserve for their “Sic ‘Em Bears” stunt

As covered by Uni-Watch, Adidas knew it was possibly going to happen. Baylor knew it could happen. Yet they made it anyway.

Good for NCAA for standing their ground. Shame on Adidas for creating an ugly set, a stupid idea and everything else they are.

Thank you BCS for giving us great football

Farewell, BCS. You weren’t a great system and at times, we questioned why you exist. But you gave us great games. The BCS Championship game we just witnessed was an amazing game. Texas-USC was amazing. The Rose Bowl this year was fun. Boise State’s upset was phenomenal.

But it’s time for you to go. I bid farewell, but I also thank you for the good and bad times. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun watching these games.

To the new playoff system, we expect great things. This is why we love college football.

Farewell and thank you.

What a game!

Looking back at my first ever trip to the Rose Bowl

I had been to the Rose Bowl before, but that was for a UCLA regular season game. But to go to the Rose Bowl game itself was something that I always wanted to do.

I didn’t do it last year mainly because I didn’t really think about it. Plus I was already so excited about the parade that I just let it be. However this year, I knew that I had to go to it. Especially since I grew up a Cal fan and have a soft spot for Michigan State sports, it was a game I had to attend.

Following the parade, I decided to drive to the Rose Bowl. I didn’t have a ticket and I didn’t even know if I could go in. I was told that I could just show up to the parking lot and mingle with people and maybe someone would sell me a ticket. I should have done that.

The ending to the Iron Bowl was kind of embarrassing

Props should be given to Auburn for being heads up on the final play to win the game. But the same cannot be said for Alabama. In fact, it’s very embarrassing that they let it happened.

It just seemed like the entire special teams, save for maybe one or two players, were ready for a potential return on a missed kick. In fact, most times when it comes to a ball fielded that deep into the end zone, the returner doesn’t get past the 30-yard line.

But it was great blocking on Auburn’s part and the delayed reaction by Alabama really took away from this ending for me. It was a thrilling ending, but it came in part because one team just wasn’t ready. That’s a shame.
