Which Teams Will Earn The Top Seeds In The NCAA Basketball Championships? 0

BKC: Kansas v Kansas State January 30, 2010

Sherron Collins and the Kansas Jayhawks seem poised for the top seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Selection Sunday is getting closer and closer and the way things are shaping up I’m ready to make some NCAA Basketball predictions for the four teams that will be the number one seed in each region.

I’m really enjoying the way Kansas is playing right now, even though they had a few problems against Texas A&M they found a way to win and that gives me a feeling they are a championship caliber team.

Looking at their schedule I don’t see any team that can stop them until the tourney starts.  They do go up against Kansas State, but that game is at home and I don’t think they will lose.  That’s why I have Kansas as the top team in the Big 12 and in the country in general.

Kansas will lead the Midwest bracket.

I am a nut when it comes to sports and I look at every angle, and having said that I don’t trust Kentucky as much as other people. Read the rest of this entry →

Some Former College Basketball Champions Won’t Be Dancing in 2010 1

Georgia Tech v North Carolina

Roy Williams and the defending NCAA Champion North Carolina Tar Heels have struggled in 2010.

To start this off I am going to tell you UCLA and Kentucky are the teams with more action and most championships titles after they survived March Madness, here are some things that I have considered before my making my final March Madness picks:

Kansas, with 3 titles, is one of my favorites for March Madness. The Jayhawks are gunning for a perfect regular season and are trying to make this season their best conference performance ever; they are leading the nation in scoring and victory margin, winning eleven straight games. Kansas is ranked at number one, meaning they are always favorites in any NCAA basketball odds

UCLA, the team with eleven Big Dance victories in college basketball, is having an embarrassing campaign this season. With 12 wins and 13 losses, the Bruins haven’t improved their work, and I can’t even imagine them in the final 64. The Bruins seem to be far away from the glory days and the good times in the past, their last title was in 1995.

    • Earl Morrall: The Perfect Backup

      Earl Morrall

      In a career that started in 1956 and ended in 1976, the Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month was never really a leading man, but he seemed to be part of the supporting cast for many huge moments in NFL history.

      The second overall pick in the 1956 NFL Draft out of Michigan State, Earl Morrall joined a San Francisco 49ers team that already included the famous “Million Dollar Backfield” of Y.A. Tittle, Hugh McElhenny, Joe Perry and John Henry Johnson.

      Morrall started four games during his rookie season, but just before the start of the 1957 season was traded along with guard Mike Sandusky to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for linebacker Marv Matuszak and two first-round draft picks.
