Since my brackets are pretty much shot, I've turned to rooting for OSU, Indiana, Michigan and Michigan State to turn the Final Four into the Big Ten Invitational.

In the Matthew bracket contest, DSL has G-town v. Gonzaga in the championship game. Good news is I don't have to keep checking.

I am no OSU homer. But the amount of hand-wringing and "what-if" BS CBS is doing over the Craft charge/block call is extreme. Greg Anthony finally makes the correct point, which is that a host of calls, plays and decisions make up a game's ultimate result. And Gumbel still won't let it go.

This is what happens when you put NBA people on NCAA games. They can't talk about the game.

After the first two rounds:



So far so good, but this is where it all usually falls apart...

Go Bucks. Thank god LaQuinton Ross started playing enough D to get on the floor. Without him the Bucks would have been one and done.

Matta has put OSU Basketball on the map. Give me Matta over any Buckeye basketball coach, including Fred Taylor!

Very disappointing loss though. It looked to me like the boys may have made it a sun and fun getaway rather than a business trip.

I buy both of these to some extent. I think Matta is a pretty good recruiter,but his last couple of classes haven't been too hot. I like Q but Matta has kept a guy who scored 17 pts in each of the last three games on the bench for most of the season.??? (I know, I know, he can't play D)

Also except for that one game where he went small and turned the tide, I don't think he is very good at making game adjustments to solve problems. And i think he often waits too long to "Get a TO Baby" to try and stop the other team's momentum.

Hard to argue with his overall success but I don't buy into him as a great coach. Pretty good most of the time.

He took a middling program to one that has a chance most years to compete for a championship. Agree that his x/o's might be a little suspect. He hasn't been able to land the big bluechips lately.

He is no Dean Smith or John Wooden, but he has made it fun to watch since he has been here.

The players put themselves in a hole too deep to get out of in the first half. This was the weakest squad at OSU that Matta has gotten this far in the tournament.

I'm not saying "In Matta I Trust", but maybe I'm saying I trust him more than any other options because.... what are the other options?

Hadn't heard about this until someone posted a picture of his leg on my FB feed. Worst injury I've ever seen; I think it trumps Joe Theismann's injury. Had to crack a beer to get over it

Hope he has a full and speedy recovery!

Nothing on Colt getting traded?

I expected the Browns fans here to be irate over this.

As soon as Lombardi was named GM, I more or less quit caring. I fully expect at least one more QB to be signed as a free agent, then a huge reach for a QB in the first round. We'll probably see Trent Richardson moved for a 7th-rounder.

He's the NFL version of Doug MacLean.
