Spooky Express Four of the Best Days of the Year March Madness Thoughts -- Check for our plays all weekend long. Come back here to the Spooky Express often to see what we have going. -- 40 years ago this month, Maryland Terrapins were #3 in the country; they lost the ACC championship game in OT to NC State and didn’t even make the NCAA tournament, because back then, only the conference champ made the NCAAs. Terps jogged thru the NIT, winning the title game there by 30+ points and NC State won the national title, but lot has changed since then, for sure. -- Whatever happened to Billy Packer? Guy was all over TV for 35 years, then CBS dumps him and he never resurfaces? I’m thinking this is our loss- there are enough sorry TV guys on the airwaves, Packer deserves a voice on one of these networks, no? -- I’m still waiting for one valid, semi-sensible reason why Louisville is a #4 seed. Anybody got anything? The only thing that stops this team is their depth and bench. -- First Four has turned out to be better than I thought it would; it has kind of a JV/Varsity feel to it, with the 16-seeds playing first, then the better teams playing the nightcap. Think it would be even better if only the top eight at-large teams played, but that’s nitpicking. Actually, the tournament would be better off at 64 teams, with none of the extra stuff, but since they have it, at least they have a format which works pretty well. -- CBS has done a good job putting all the games on regular TV; afternoon card is so spread out you really don’t have to go out to catch just about all the good action. For the night cards, a sports bar is necessary. Plus, CBS Sports Network runs the games back all night, the way ESPN used to in the old days, and that’s a great thing. -- Baseball season starts at 4am Eastern time Friday night/Saturday morning from Australia, when Dodgers-Arizona play. Second game of the series is 10pm Saturday night, or Sunday afternoon in Australia. Lot of stuff going on; things move fast, you have to keep up. -- How are these tournament games going to be officiated? New rules? Old rules? Australian Rules? Holy Cross-Brown CIT game Monday night had total of 10 foul shots, but that was with refs who weren’t trying to impress and move on in the NCAA tournament. Former Wake Forest coach Dino Gaudio said on ESPNU Sunday night he thought the new rules this season hurt Duke. Interesting point. If the powers-that-be are hung up on enforcing new rules, there could be games with lot of foul shots being taken. -- When, if ever, will a 1-seed lose to a 16-seed? Not this year; too many upsets in the smaller conference tourneys weakened the bottom of this field. -- VCU’s run to the Final Four legitimized the First Four concept; which of the upper-level First Four teams can make a run this year? -- Providence beat Creighton Saturday night by pushing the Bluejays around inside; Friars have so little depth, can they do the same thing with North Carolina, which has bigger, tougher (if less skilled) guys than Crieghton? -- Friars and St Joe’s are two teams with almost zero depth, but with TV timeouts longer during the NCAA tournament, conditioning should be less of a problem than if refs blow a tight whistle, like they did in the Providence-Seton Hall game Friday. Hawks also play six guys but they’re six pretty good guys. -- Nebraska coach Tim Miles was talking on TV the other night about how he had Texas A&M WR Mike Evans in Lincoln on a basketball recruiting visit and that he was a very good hooper. Am thinking Evans made the right decision choosing football.
