Give Wichita State a lot of credit. They're having a fantastic tourney.

OMG! Louisville player broke his leg. Very gruesome. Never seen anything like this.

A lot of tears on Louisville players and coaches.

He lifted his legs up while laying down. His tibia was sticking out and his rest of leg was dangling.

There could be all kinds of muscular, nerve, artery, etc damage associated with a break like that.

I wouldn't want to see it ever again.

I'll trust your full description, sniugneP. I could only stomach to take a quick glance at it as the leg snapped.

My heart broke when OSU lost yesterday but then again I really haven't even cared about the tourney this year. Even with their last minute heroics, I just haven't bought into this season's big madness. I must be getting older or my love for hockey is at a level where other spots are now meaningless. I used to really enjoy NFL, NCAA, and MLB, but now I can go without even watching it as long as my Pens are doing well.

OSU losing is the only outcome I know of in the tournament. And it makes me smile

Why would parents name their son Christine? Am I missing something with that?

Christine Michael may be the least football name of all time. That sounds like a $20 bottle of shampoo.

I definitely wouldn't be opposed to that. Woods, even though not the tall type we crave, is a natural pass catcher.

I have a hard time believing Johnathan Cyprien will drop to 61 with all the hype he's receiving.

@ Rutgers controversy on espn. You really can't get away with anything these days. Too many people recording every move. Why people still do things that could get them in trouble is beyond me. Mob bosses are rolling in their graves...snitches everywhere nowadays

I checked out the video of him throwing the basketballs at his players.

I really want to watch Dodgeball right now.

Houston Texans center/guard Antoine Caldwell visiting Steelers. He was a 3rd rounder out of Alabama in 2009. He's started 19 games and played mostly at RG but can play LG and Center too. Just a depth move if he's signed.

and

Pre Draft Visits

OLB John Simon - Ohio State - April 1

RB Christine Michael - Texas A&M - April 1

ILB Vince Williams - Florida State - April 1

OLB Jarvis Jones - Georgia - April 2

OLB Jamie Collins - Southern Mississippi - April 2

LB Khaseem Greene - Rutgers- April 2

S Jonathan Meeks - Clemson- April 2

S Phillip Thomas - Fresno State- April 2

LB Michael Mauti - Penn State

I'm surprised no WR's scheduled. Also all the pre draft stuff on the Steelers loving Swearinger I figured he'd might get a visit too. I'm sure we already interviewed a lot of the guys we really want and probably giving these guys a second look.

I think we'll see a few WR's brought in for visits. It's still early. You can tell the needs and what they're targeting based on the visits though. Nothing but LB's, safeties and a RB so far.

Steelers re-signed Stevenson Sylvester. They didn't tender him an offer as an RFA so there was some question whether they would bring him back. By not tendering him, letting him test the market and re-signing him now, they saved around 700k.

Former Pitt and Arizona Cardinals RB LaRod Stevens-Howling is visiting the team. I guess they're looking for a Rainey replacement.

Add TCU WR Josh Boyce and Clemson DE/LB Malliciah Goodman to the Pre Draft visitors

LSH is a good change-of-pace type back. He can be our third down back if signs with us.

Was Christine Michael the one everyone thought ran the 4.19?

Pretty sure that was Terrell Sinkfield.

Also, Nevada S Duke Williams and UCLA RB Johnathan Franklin are the latest pre draft visitors.
