@dennisdoddcbs and @dcaraviello call out SI Kid’s Reporter at NCAAs, then have to apologize.

Martin

You that filter in your head that stops you from saying what you are thinking? For a couple of members of the sports media, that little filter apparently stopped working. @dcaraviello of the @PostandCourier and @dennisdoddcbs of CBSSports.com had these comments about about a SI Kid Reporter asking questions at the NCAA Tournament. SI for KIds reporter is cute and all, but not …

NC State hires Kevin Keatts and we approve.

keattsncsu

I will admit it, I LOVE the Kevin Keatts hire at NC State. As I went through Twitter, the sense I got was disappointment. Now, I am not sure if the disappointment that I felt was due to the news that had broken earlier in the day that Sean Miller, Archie Miller’s brother, was advising …

What does the early lack of upsets and draw mean about the NCAA Field?

john_calipari_uk_feature1

By NCAA tournament standards, let’s be honest this has been a kind of dull tournament. Has their been a signature moment yet? An epic upset? No and no… What is this telling us about the field? Coming in we knew the bubble was really weak. Those 7-11 seeds at large bids, were a lot of …
