2017 March Madness Perspective

2017 Men’s March Madness Perspective

March 12, 2017

One of the greatest sporting events in history starts in a few weeks, and if you’re a fan of college basketball, you’re probably getting excited. Yup it’s March Madness time baby!

march-madnessEver wonder How Much Does the NCAA Make off March Madness?

March Madness is a crazy-fun basketball tournament that involves 68 teams and 67 fast-paced, heart-racing, edge-of-your seat basketball games. The timing of March Madness on the sports schedule cannot get any better. The NFL season is over, NBA and NHL playoffs have yet to begin, and MLB is still a week away from Opening Day.

There’s not much going on in March and fans are craving for this kind of postseason action.

What is loved most about March Madness is that it’s not about big-name, high-profile, professional players. There’s no LeBron James or Steph Curry. It’s just a team of five guys from a college trying to do anything they can to win the next game. Many of the games are nail-biters that come down to the last three-point shot as the final buzzer sounds just like the 2016 Championship.

If you’re not familiar with the tournament but are interested in jumping on the March Madness bandwagon, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s everything you need to know about the NCAA (that’s National Collegiate Athletic Association) tourney.

VAC365-TPOSBuilding Men & Women via Athletics

As I write this, the major college conferences—you’ve heard their names: Pac-12, Big 12, ACC, SEC, etc.—are hosting their end-of-season tournaments, which must be completed by Sunday. The winners of these conference championships will earn an automatic bid to the Big Dance (another term for March Madness). The best teams aren’t necessarily guaranteed a spot in March Madness. Why? Because they could lose during their conference tournament.

A total of 32 teams will be automatically qualified into the tournament field. Gonzaga, Yale, and Northern Iowa are a few who have recently secured automatic spots. That will leave 36 at-large selections to be placed into the tournament by the selection committee. On Sunday evening, the committee, which is composed of 10 athletic directors from various colleges around the country, will pick the remaining teams that get to participate in March Madness.

Sixty-eight teams will initially be a part of the madness. Four of these teams are on the bubble, which means that they have to play an extra game to secure a spot in the tournament. The bubble game takes place next Tuesday, March 15. The real tournament, with 64 teams, starts on Thursday, March 17. Games take place in 32 pre-selected cities across the United States – Buffalo, Greensboro, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Orlando, Tulsa, Sacramento, Salt Lake City and Indianapolis get first-weekend duties. For the regionals, Kansas City, San Jose, Memphis and New York City (Madison Square Garden) and the Final Four and Championship will be held in Phoenix!

Then there’s filling in your own perfect bracket. Even if your bracket is clean or messed up, you’re still going to be hooked by the tournament. Who knows? You may be cheering for the remaining teams in your bracket or cheering against the team that busted your bracket. You become glued not only to the teams you’re a fan of, you start caring about every single score.

Whether you pick against yourself for personal satisfaction or against others for money, it is an exciting way to add intrigue and bragging rights to a nation-wide sporting event.

Join our Bracket Challenge!!!
yahootournamentpickem

basketball NOTE: Our current President has declined filling out a bracket 😦

March Madness is the time when college basketball stars become legends and virtual unknowns put themselves onto the map. Who can forget Brad Stevens coaching Butler to back-to-back title game appearances, or Stephen Curry’s scoring surge in Davidson’s improbable run, or Carmelo Anthony carrying Syracuse to a national championship as a true freshman? And again, don’t forget about last years’ shot by Villanova’s Kris Jenkins ~click here!

Every year, several coaches and players emerge from March Madness as household names, even when a few entered as virtual unknowns. Some of them managed to earn a permanent place in our list of greatest sports memories and became NBA stars.

Should be a fun, fast two weeks of action…. who do you have winning it all? See ya in Phoenix

Time to clinch or is it?

What a week of football last week as Iowa upset Michigan and Ohio State had their ‘i’ dotted by Michigan State, what could happen this weekend?

As a conference, the Big Ten faces more questions than perhaps any other in the country.

49Wisc-helmet  purdue-helmet 20

The Badgers were clicking on ALL cylinders this afternoon in West Lafayette as they cruised to a 49-20 victory over Purdue. Wisconsin scored 35 points in the final 8 1/2 minutes of the first half to the Boilermakers 10.

In front of a slim, home crowd which was there to celebrate senior day, the home team got on the board with the only score in th first quarter on a 28 yard field goal by J.D. Dellinger. After that, the Badgers scored on their next five possessions.

Sophomore Alec Ingold got in the end zone on a 1-yard run taking the lead at 7-3 and from that, they never looked back. Ingold would score again later in the quarter, this time on a 19 yard pass from Bart Huston. Huston finished the shared duties as quarterback 5-6 102. One special highlight came on when junior T.J. Watt, younger brother of J.J., had a pick 6 on a batted interception by David Blough.

“What a play by T.J.,” Badgers coach Paul Chryst said. “To knock it down is a really good play. To get a pick is a really good play. To do both that changed (the game).”

Bradrick Shaw scored twice himself… both on the ground. One from 7 yards out, the other from 33. Now remember all of this is in the first half.

“We knew we had to win the turnover battle,” Purdue interim head coach Gerad Parker said. “Early on, our defense bottled up the football. We lost some things in that turnover stretch in the second quarter.”

Second half, the Badgers (9-2, 6-2) eased off the gas and score two more times on a 25-yard pass from Alex Hornibrook to Jazz Peavy in the third and their final score came from Corey Clement (27 carries, 112 yards) who scored on a 6-yard run. Hornibrook went 7-9 for 89 yards.

The Boilermakers (3-8, 1-7) did get in the end zone twice in the second half as DeAngelo Yancey caught a 75-yard pass and a 10-yarder from David Blough. Blough finished the game 14-30 for 206 yard with those two touchdowns and three interceptions. Yancey finished with 155 yards on 6 receptions.

The Badgers didn’t get the help they needed to wrap up the West, but the win certainly keeps their playoff hopes alive. But with this victory, Wisconsin can clinch the West Division title and earn a spot in the Dec. 3 conference championship game with a victory next weekend against Minnesota as they try to retain the Paul Bunyan Axe for the 13th consecutive year.

And for Purdue, they hope to snap a three-game losing streak against rival Indiana. The Boilermakers haven’t lost the Old Oaken Bucket in four straight years since the 1940s.

What a game……

The Buckeyes survived a scare as the Spartans had a chance to win, but came up 1-point short, 17-16 at home. Michigan State running back L.J. Scott scored on a 1-yard touchdown run to bring the Spartans within 17-16 with just 4:53 to play. Mark Dantonio elected to go for the two-point conversion, but Tyler O’Connor’s pass was intercepted by Malik Hooker.

Michigan State got the ball on its own 20-yard line with just over 2 minutes to play needing just a field goal to win, but O’Connor’s pass was intercepted a-g-a-i-n by Gareon Conley on the second play.

The Spartans came out fired up and took a 7-0 lead on Ohio State after just two offensive plays. Tyler O’Connor hit running back L.J. Scott on a 64-yard screen pass that found pay dirt just 46 seconds into the game. The Buckeyes responded, however, shortly thereafter with a five-play, 50-yard scoring drive. Quarterback J.T. Barrett hooked up with Curtis Samuel for a 24-yard touchdown strike with 7:56 to play in the first quarter to tie things at 7-all.

The teams traded field goals to enter halftime at 10-10, and only to score as described above to conclude this tough contest.

Michigan State out-gained Ohio State 334 to 310, but the Buckeyes narrowly control possession 30:53 to 29:07 and rushing, 224 – 207.

Now Ohio State can officially focus on The Game as they host ‘The” Ohio State next weekend at HIGH NOON. This is biggest Ohio State–Michigan game since 2006. The Wolverines traveled to Columbus that year and fell 42-39. Michigan, like Ohio State, is now 10-1. This will be “the” de facto playoff quarterfinal and technical the BIG TEN championship wink wink.

Maryland 7, Nebraska 28

Iowa 28, Illinois 0

Indiana 10, Michigan 20

Northwestern 12, Minnesota 29

Penn State, Rutgers – gametime 7p CST

https://i1.wp.com/www.amateursports365.com/images/RobinsonRibs-MAIN.jpg

Who will come out on top when Michigan and Ohio State square off at the end of the season? Can the Buckeyes make it into the College Football Playoff without a conference championship? Can the Big Ten qualify two teams in the CFP?

Most of those questions won’t be answered this week, yet Week 12 is filled with potential trap games for all the contenders at the center of those questions. Before Ohio State and Michigan can look forward to their match-up in Week 13, the Buckeyes and Wolverines must navigate games against Michigan State and Indiana, respectively.

Signing Day: The nation’s top 10 recruiting classes

1. Arizona: In addition to 7-footer DeAndre Ayton, the No. 1 player in the country, Sean Miller added three other top 100 talents in 6-7 Ira Lee, point guard Alex Barcello and shooting guard Brandon Randolph. Could the Wildcats finish the class off with wing Lonnie Walker, a top 20 player who is uncommitted?

2. UCLA: A year after landing current freshman phenom Lonzo Ball, coach Steve Alford has another stacked class. Point guard Jaylen Hands out of San Diego is the headliner of this four-man class. But it will get a big boost if, as expected, Indy prep star Kris Wilkes, a top 25 player in the country, commits soon.

3. Washington: Michael Porter, an ultra-smooth 6-7 scorer on the wing, is one of the nation’s truly elite prospects. The four-man class also includes a pair of locals from Seattle –– top 50 guard Daejon Davis and top 75 player Jaylen Howell from Seattle.

4. Auburn: Coach Bruce Pearl now has put together three straight talented classes at this “football school.” His top prize, 6-10 Austin Wiley, is an Auburn legacy and one of the top 20 players in the country. Top 50 talent Davion Mitchell and four-star forward Chuma Okeke are also on board.

5. Xavier: This talented five-man class should help keep Chris Mack’s program among the top 25 in the country. The best class in the Big East includes top 100 players Paul Scruggs and Naji Marshall, a pair of perimeter stars.

6. Louisville: There are multiple top 100 talents and four-star recruits in this four-man class, but the gem of the class is 6-10 Malik Williams. The Fort Wayne, Ind., native is a long, agile, defensive presence and has an enormous upside.

7. Texas: A trio of top 100 national recruits are headed to Austin, including 6-8 Jericho Sims, 6-8 Royce Hamm and shooting guard Jase Febres.

8. Oregon: Troy Brown, a dynamic 6-7 guard and top 20 player in the country, is the star of this class. Both 6-4 V.J. Bailey and 6-6 Abu Kigab are top 100 talents.

9. Western Kentucky: Yes, the Hilltoppers, out of Conference USA, have a top 10 class after hitting the jackpot with two top 50 talents: 7-footer Mitchell Robinson, one of the top 10 players in the country, and 6-4 shooting guard Josh Anderson.

10. Michigan State: Sparty goes big! Jaren Jackson, a 6-10, 220-pound power forward, is a top 20 player in the senior class, while 6-8, 260-pound Xavier Tillman is among the top 100.

BIG Ten from Week 5 Recap…

October 1, 2016

This was a big week in college football and the Big Ten had one marquee matchup that turned into a bit of a dud. Here ya go!

Michigan 14, Wisconsin 7

I was really looking forward to watching this game, and then it started, and well, I started doing laundry… The most exciting moment for me was one of the better interceptions you’ll see all year and the goofy centipede formation by coach Jim Harbaugh.

The Wolverines went into halftime with a 7-0 lead thanks to a touchdown from fullback Khalid Hill. Wisconsin answered in the third when freshman quarterback Alex Hornibrook connected with Dare Ogunbowale for a 17-yard touchdown strike. Michigan would recapture the lead midway through the fourth when Wilton Speight hit Amara Darboh for what would turn out to be the game-winning 46-yard score.

That’s it….

Indiana 24, Michigan State 21 (OT)

I thought it was pretty silly earlier in the week when I saw that Michigan State was only favored by six points over the Hoosiers. Late last night I felt pretty silly myself for thinking that I knew more than the sharks in Vegas.

The Hoosiers’ victory allowed them to reclaim the Old Brass Spittoon for the first time in a decade. What exactly is an old brass spittoon? I have no idea, but it sounds pretty mysterious and I would love to have one of my own someday.

Richard Lagow led the Hoosiers as he completed 16 of 26 passes for 276 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Lagow was also on the receiving end of a five-yard score in the third quarter. Devine Redding led all rushers with 100 yards on 19 carries. Senior wideout Ricky Jones added 124 yards receiving and a touchdown.

The Spartans’ three-headed backfield of Gerald Holmes, Madre London, and L.J. Scott combined for 128 yards rushing while Tyler O’Connor added 36 of his own. O’Connor connected on 21 of 35 passes for 263 yards and three scores. R.J. Shelton had himself a day as the senior hauled in seven passes for 141 yards and a touchdown.

Michigan State kicker Michael Geiger missed a 49-yard field goal attempt in overtime. The Hoosiers returned the favor with a miss of their own, but the Spartans were flagged for leaping which gave Indiana new life. Griffin Oakes would then knock in the chip-shot 20-yarder to bring the Hoosiers to 3-1.

Nebraska 31, Illinois 16

Illini jumped out early and controlled the game until the fourth quarter when tailback Terrell Newby led the way in a fourth quarter that saw Nebraska score three touchdowns. The senior ran for 113 of his 140 yards in the game’s final quarter and scored twice on his own.

Tommy Armstrong completed 16 of 23 passes for 220 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He also found the endzone once with his legs. Jordan Westerkamp led all receivers with four receptions for 65 yards.

The Illinois offense had a pretty lackluster day, totaling just 270 yards. Wes Lunt was 13 of 22 for 133 yards. Reggie Corbin led the Illini ground game with nine carries for 72 yards. Lovie Smith’s squad struggled to convert in enemy territory and had to settle for three Chase McLaughlin field goals.

 

Ohio State 58, Rutgers 0

Speechless even for me when talking about Ohio State…

With the win, Ohio State moved to 4-0 (1-0 B1G) on the season. The loss dropped Rutgers to 2-3 (0-2).

The Buckeyes will next be in action Saturday when they host Indiana at 3:30 p.m.

 

Penn State 29, Minnesota 26

Penn State steals a victory over Minnesota behind the play of the entire team.

Northwestern 38, Iowa 31

The Hawkeye fanbase has to be elated that the administration and athletic supporters elected to keep Kirk Ferentz around for another decade or so. Since the extension was announced less than a month ago, Iowa has fallen at home twice. Two weeks ago it was to North Dakota State of the FCS and yesterday’s loss came at the hands of a Northwestern squad that was 1-3 heading into the matchup.

Quarterback Clayton Thorson and tailback Justin Jackson accounted for all five of the Wildcats’ touchdowns. Thorson threw for 164 yards and a trio of scores while adding another with his legs. Jackson rushed for 171 yards and, with the game tied at 24, scored on a 58-yard scamper late in the third quarter. Senior wideout Austin Carr hauled in all three of Thorson’s touchdown passes.

The Hawkeye offense could only manage 283 yards on the day. C.J. Beathard threw for 204 yards with one touchdown and one interception. LeShun Daniels Jr. ran for 72 yards and a score. Akrum Wadley struggled to get anything going as the junior rushed for just 35 yards on 14 carries, though he did find the endzone twice.

Looking at the bright side for Iowa, they may be able to avoid about $2 million that Ferentz is set to bring home (over the length of his contract) if the Hawkeyes reach seven wins on the season. That could help to make a ridiculous buyout a little bit less absurd.

Note: Internet searches for “Kirk Ferentz buyout” peaked around 2:30PM yesterday.

Maryland 50, Purdue 7

The Terrapins are not as bad as many thought they’d be. In his first year at the helm, D.J. Durkin actually has Maryland looking like a solid football team, and his Big Ten debut was a memorable one. Yes, Purdue is awful, but the Terps were damn impressive on Saturday as they moved to 4-0 on the season.

Not a bad little weekend in the conference. The Hoosiers handing Dantonio his second conference loss was a bit unexpected. The Buckeyes obviously rolled over Rutgers and neither Michigan nor Wisconsin did anything that should invoke fear across the state of Ohio.

Next week’s conference slate can best be described as “meh.” Michigan is traveling to Rutgers where they will surely trounce the Scarlet Knights. The Spartans host BYU as they will look to avoid a third straight loss. The Hoosiers – who have been a tad bit pesky lately – will make their way to Columbus.

Are the Durkin-led Terps going to screw around and end up in the Top 25? A win at Happy Valley next week could certainly help their case.

2016 BIG Ten Week 4

BIG Ten from Week 4 Recap…

Week 4…. Conference play kicked off this weekend…. Here ya go!

Wisconsin 30, Michigan State 6

Redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook’s first start was a memorable one for the Badgers as they knocked off the Spartans. The Badgers – led by a defense that forced four turnovers – would go on to hold the Spartans without a touchdown.

Hornibrook tossed a touchdown pass and Corey Clement found the endzone in the second quarter to give Wisconsin the edge and they never looked back. The freshman ended the day 16 of 26 for 195 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Corey Clement found the endzone twice but could only manage 54 yards on 23 carries. Jazz Peavy led all pass-catchers with four receptions for 96 yards.

Word has it that the Spartans may be on the verge of a bit of a quarterback controversy, though their head coach is saying otherwise. Lima, Ohio native Tyler O’Connor was atrocious on the day. The senior was 18 of 38 for 224 yards and three interceptions and his performance has some fans clamoring for redshirt freshman Brian Lewerke. Lewerke came in on the Spartans’ final drive and was 2 of 4 for 26 yards.

Michigan 49, Penn State 10

In a yawner at home, the Wolverines dominated from the kickoff. Let me put it this way, it was pointed out to me that Michigan had more points (28) than Penn State had total yards (24). WOW! Nothing else to report. LINK TO BOXSCORE

Nebraska 24, Northwestern 13

Senior quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. put on a show Saturday afternoon which led to the victory against the ‘Cats. He threw for 246 yards and a score while adding a new career high of 132 yards rushing. Terrell Newby ran for 69 yards and scored a touchdown of his own.

Clayton Thorson led the Northwestern attack with 292 yards of total offense to go along with a pair of touchdowns. The sophomore was also picked off twice. Justin Jackson led the ground game with 79 yards while Austin Carr was the game’s leading receiver with 109 yards and a score.

With three losses already on the young season, the Wildcats have matched their total from last year’s 10-3 campaign.

Iowa 14, Rutgers 7

Minnesota 31, Colorado State 24

Wake Forest 33, Indiana 28

Purdue 24, Nevada 14

Next weekend’s headliner will certainly be the Badgers traveling back to the Mitten State to take on the Wolverines. The Buckeyes will host Rutgers and Michigan State will be looking to bounce back in Bloomington.
