Day Two is where General Managers really earn their money. Sorry about that, I left Williamsburg for two weeks of vacation before the start of school. Mary’s College in the Sweet 16 this weekend, but the Gaels have set the early bar for upsets.
Connecticut is the better team and has more weapons. They cruised rather easily through the West region to reach the Final Four. As for Michigan State, they managed to slip past USC and rallied back against Kansas before stunning Louisville in a game that wasn’t even close.
The Bruins ripped this one away from the Bulldogs. UCLA scored 11 points to barely pull out a win. This was heartbreaking – remember when Adam Morrison cried after the game?!? What a wild finish. Definitely a top game of the past 10 years.
Last night the Rams selected Robert Quinn, a defensive end from North Carolina. He is a pass rushing specialist that should help the defense and certainly increases the depth. After not expecting Quinn to fall to them and maybe taking a position of less need than others it would lead you to believe that the Rams will be really focusing on need tonight. So what should the Rams to be looking to do and who should the Rams be focusing on at this point? Here is a look at some of the options and strategies.
One hard to find game on the March Madness schedule 2010 is at around 5 p.m. EST. Butler will take on UTEP, in a game featuring two potential sleepers in the West region. The game won’t be on CBS, and is only available on CBS’s cable channel.
So, I guess I would pick some random game started by Sandy Koufax from 1955-1957 at Ebbets Field. I would love to see first hand how hard he threw and how big the curve really was, even if he didn’t find the strike zone with it. And I’d love to see a Major League game in Brooklyn and get into arguments with the fans if Willie, Mickey or the Duke was the best CF in NYC.
For Villanova, the loss completes a disastrous end to what looked like a championship season. A 20-1 start and No. 2 ranking gave way to a 3-6 finish, as the Robert Morris escape only delayed the inevitable. Scottie Reynolds ended his career with a 4-for-25 NCAA tournament, and couldn’t get to the free throw line to make up for it this time.
On what Archer does differently from Archer: “I would say he’s a little more athletic. Jake was a more in between the tackles guy, more of a run you over than run by you guy. He has a good as arm as Jake, I think his deep ball is a little bit better in terms of consistency so I think maybe being able to move and to throw the ball down the field with a little more consistency is maybe the difference.
There’s nothing glamorous about the degradation and destruction of animals and people and that’s what thug culture is all about. I understand about being proud of where you come from and not wanting to forget your roots. But it would be wonderful if Vick evolved into the person who honored his roots by being a positive force in his community and one who no longer engaged in deviant behavior.
