  1. College basketball's Final Four has had unique logos that go hand-in-hand with the city location. What do you consider the best and worst ones you recall? Personally, here are my 3 favorite logos: 2004 2003 2000 As for my least favorite: Ironically, New Orleans/San Antonio Final Fours are on my best/worst list.
  2. To think when Chris Boucher was declared out for the tourney, I thought Oregon was gonna be Cincy/Kenyon Martin 2.0 I had them getting upset by Iona.
  3. Little dissapointated in UCLA/Kentucky. Once AGAIN, it's Calipari and his joyless one-and-done factory winning. I mean, UCLA had a lot of guys who had been around for multiple years- yet it's the other guys who move on. So much for Kentucky lacking a big guy this year.
  4. Saturday is the biggest game in Gonzaga history.... unless they play beyond tomorrow.
  5. The guy I think about in spots like this Mick Cronin. In his own city, he seems to always get outdone by Mack. Xavier practically lives in the 2nd weekend while Cincinnati has made it past the first weekend FOUR times since the 1992 Final Four. McCarthy is a Bearcats fan and this has to really sting. The Bearcats have made two Sweet 16's this century while Xavier damn near lives there this decade.
  6. Outside of a First Four loss to NC State in 2013, it seems like Xavier practically lives in the second weekend when they aren't a top 5 seed. And amazing to think how much good fortune they have had- benefitting from the LeHigh/Georgia State upsets, getting the shakiest 3-6 seed combo this year. Tonight.... my god, it seemed like everytime Xavier had a 'If we miss this, the game could get out of control the other way' they never missed. They shot like 100 percent on WE CANNOT MISS THIS shots.
  7. Sean Miller is cursed. Freaking Xavier- didn't do anything until March. Loved them last year, thought they were useless for most of this year.
  8. The Manimal's rookie season in Denver was also the final year they wore the navy alternate NUGGETS uniforms
  9. Say what you want about the sponsor, but the actual paint schemes were VERY impressive:
  10. In the spring of 2004, I went to Chicago on a field trip and bought a Blackhawks pennant for..... ONE DOLLAR! This was back in the days when the only way you could see Blackhawks home games was a rare ESPN telecast or you had NHL Center Ice and had to get the opposing TV feed. I remember a time when the Blackhawks having a winning streak was a big deal. It felt like a miracle when they somehow had a 40 win 90 point 2002 playoff season. That was like a comet!
  11. On one hand- DUKE LOST On the other hand- is there any reason for me to care about the East region? I mean, good god, freaking Wisconsin might be the favorite in that region after basically sucking for 1.5 months. Seriously, whoever gets out of MSG will probably be a big underdog against the West Region. Upsets are a mixed bag- you love them initially, but the ensuing matchups can sometimes be less than desired.
  12. Kurt Busch had some gloriously epic cars in his 97 days:
  13. He had a lot of good ones:
  14. I'm biased towards this one because I was at the Michigan race last June and got to see that red/white/blue car in person
