Saving the Big12

Everyone has their ideas about how to save the Big 12 conference. My answer is even simpler – Kick Texas out – Or just have a meeting between all the other schools to decide on everything and tell Texas take it or leave it.

  • How about those Missouri Tigers.  If you missed Denmon’s shot with 2 seconds left in the 1st half, you have to watch this…

NCAA Picks

As you may remember, each year I see if I can do a better job of picking the winners in NCAA basketball tournement than my quarter.  With the down economy, this year I had to use two dimes and a nickle (2dn system) instead of a quarter for my base-line bracket.  I don’t think much of the 2dn system at this point — I seriously doubt that the final four will be Robert Morris, Cal, Villanova, and Butler, with Butler winning it all.

For my bracket I picked Louisville, UConn, Duke, and Oklahoma, with Louisville winning it all.

  • Quite the list of downer songs/ song names this week.  Goes nicely with the dreary gray weather.
  • I came up with a new drill at basketball practice last night.  The girls have a tendency to hold the ball too long or to try to do too much on their own.  To stop this, before we scrimaged I told them that if they held the ball for more than 3 seconds or dribbled for more than 5 seconds I was going to call a turnover.  After they got burned a few times they did a much better job of keeping the ball moving.  I’ll have to remember that one.
