10 tips on how to have the best NCAA Tournament bracket

I usually have a pick ’em this time around but year I am going to forego that so I can focus on the two that I already am in.

I have followed some strategies throughout my years and I have done pretty well. I have never won but hey, I still got a good amount of upsets right.

Today I will share my tips on having a great bracket. A winning one? I don’t know. But these are what I hold on to when I fill my bracket out.

Was that a goaltend at the end of the UCLA-SMU game?

That was the game-winning shot! Except the ball never went in. It was ruled a goaltend and UCLA took the lead and won, advancing to the next round.

Take a look at these two angles. Is that a goaltend? The shot looks off and there appears to be a chance that it would have missed the rim entirely. Maybe the refs think it could have grazed the rim. We’ll never know. But from these angles, it looks like it would have missed.

However, the risk is too high to be even trying to grab the ball that close to the rim. And it’s odd that the officials can’t go to replay on something like that. Still, it may not have had any chance of going in, but chancing it by reaching for the ball that close to the rim warrants a call. Not a fair call, but it was the call that had to be made.

Spartans made me sad

Sloppy play.

Lost of composure.

MSU just didn’t play their best.

My brackets are in shambles and as a Spartans fan, I am sad.

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!

Can you beat me?

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.

SJSU basketball’s new floor design has taken Sparta to a whole new level

What do you get when you mix two wood finishes, a large center court logo that isn’t centered and an image from the movie 300? You get this!

I’m not really big on these overly designed courts. They’re only nice if it isn’t too much of a gimmick. I know that the courts of the past in the NBA in the 1990s were like this, but they added character to the team. This one does, but it’s still a little too much for me.

First of all, I never liked having two finishes to the wood. Inside the arc is real dark and the rest is a lighter finish. I would much prefer it being the light one.
