For those who haven't seen it yet, it's a nice little video on ESPN lauding Gardner and sportsmanship in general.
And here's a Freep appreciation article on Gardner as well:
This is a well-written summary of what most on this board believe, but in a forum intended for a broader audience.
Prepare yourselves. Turn off ESPN (except for live sports programming), mute Twitter, and in general expect to be innundated with obscure, ridiculous, over the top media coverage.
LeBron has opted out of his heat contract. This may just be a way to restructure it to get the Heat more cap space, but he's now a free agent. With Carmelo Anthony opting out too this may just break the HOT TAKES engine.
Interesting ESPN article touching on the state of Michigan football and how Nussmeier hire was the right move. Definitely highlights our O-line, leadership, and inconsistency concerns for next year. All I'm saying is bring me that Michigan Football season, we'll be great.
T-Minus 1 hour and 35ish minutes until the start of the tournament and brackets lock. Here is the LINK - http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/2014-espn-tournament-challenge-back - fo that.
I'll be watch the games on my computer and/or phone at work using this --> www.ncaa.com/march-madness . Unfortunately taking time off has been blocked by the superiors. Also an app available on the Apple Store and GooglePLAY.
Apparently it's popular for guys to schedule a vasectomy this time of year --> www.cnn.com/2014/03/16/us/march-madness-vasectomies/
Some matchups that I'm looking forward to watching (besides the obvious):
Dayton vs Ohio State - Dayton is a trendy upset pick here. We'll see.
Pittsburgh vs Colorado - this could end up being the game of the day
NC State vs St. Louis - this is my upset pick, if it can be considered an upset based on seeding
Arizona State vs Texas - scouting our potential next opponent
What are other games you're keeping an eye on?
Now that we've had a couple hours to calm down and digest what has happened, it is FINALLY that time to get all your brackets filled out! Good luck to everyone!
I just got done listening to every single ESPN analyst pick Sparty to win the tournament. Apparently, beating Michigan for the B1G tourny title puts them back on that horse. <sigh> I'm sure no one here is going to make that mistake.
