NCAA Tournament reaction

Here are my quick reactions to the men's NCAA Tournament bracket that was released a short time ago. 

I have to start with the Midwest Region, the without-a-doubt best region in the tourney. 

Locally speaking, both Louisville and Kentucky got the shaft by the tournament selection committee. Both should be probably two seed numbers higher than they are (i.e. the Cardinals should probably be a 2 and the Wildats should be no worse than a 6).  

Five for Friday night

Here are five items for Friday night:

Five for Sunday

Here are five of my thoughts on Sunday afternoon:

8th Region boys' preview

Here is a quick look at the first-round matchups, and my takes on them, of the boys’ 8th Region basketball tournament, which will take place starting Monday night at Henry County.

Oldham County (23-7) vs. Grant County (24-5), 6:30 p.m. Monday

Collins-Shelby Co. girls' game was an instant classic

To me there are two words that best describe Wednesday night’s 30th District Tournament girls’ basketball semifinal between Collins and Shelby County - instant classic.

There’s no other way to describe the Titans’ 52-48 double-overtime victory over the Rockets at Collins. If Shelby County had its own version of ESPN Classic the game would’ve already been aired five or six times.

Saturday's sports

Here is a quick look at today's high school sports action in the county:

*The Collins & Shelby County swim teams continue competing in the Region 3 meet at Russell County.

*The Collins girls' basketball team (12-12), coming off Thursday night's loss to Gallatin County, will try to get back on track at 1 p.m. today when it hosts Bethlehem. The Banshees (6-12) have won two in a row since they lost seven straight.

Preview of tonight's girls' basketball games

Here are a couple of quick previews on tonight's high school girls' basketball games involving county teams.


This game was originally scheduled for this past Friday before being postponed due to the winter weather. 

Super Bowl

Well this is a first, tonight I'll be watching the Super Bowl from a hospital room.

My wife gave birth to our second daughter, Madeline Sue, on Friday afternoon, so tonight the three of us will be watching the biggest football game in the world from the Clark Memorial Hospital in Jeffersonville, Ind.

I might do some live blogging of the game, depending on how many diapers I have to change, but first things first, what's your prediction?

I'm going to go with the 49ers, 27-24.
