Two Weeks To March Madness.

Syracuse is 29-1. (Impressed Whistle)

I need a massive cram session on college basketball.  Just when you think couldn’t pay any less attention to a sport a new year dawns and you’re further into the darkness.  I blame Villanova.  My on again, off again bandwagon affair with the Wildcats is not flourishing this season.  Nova is 11-17.  They’re 4-12 in the conference.  They’re not even going to make the NIT.  They’re so bad right now if they wanted to get into a tournament, they’d have to host their own.  I think Jay Wright has been spending a little too much time on his wardrobe?  At the very least, he’s whiffed on entire recruiting classes.  With Nova so down, and the Big East a little down my number of games watched has dropped from the usual one per week to a big fat doughnut.  Zero.  Of course, that won’t stop me from shamelessly jumping on Temple once the tournament actually starts.  Cherry and White, baby.

Since I know absolutely nothing about college basketball, I thought I’d take a gander at the top-5 teams in the country and fill out little questionnaires on them.  I’m hoping that someone out there can fill in some valuable information for me.  I’d like to know which one of these teams is going to win the National Title.  Considering how little I know, I should start winning NCAA pools anytime now.

  1. what’s Saul Smith up to these days? I hated him so much that near the end of his “career” i started to feel bad for him

  2. He really was a whipping boy. And just awful, awful hair.

    Maybe you can break down Nova’s woes for us. I mean, is Jay Wright regretting that he didn’t bolt at this point?

    He doesn’t look like he could coach gym at this point.

  3. well i won’t bore you with an analysis of their season other than say bad players + bad coach = awful season

    perhaps you are wondering who Novas best win came against this year? well the correct answer is they don’t have one… but if you are forced to pick one, i think maybe you’d argue Providence or you could also look to Seton Hall and St. Johns….and Penn
