March Madness Joy

First of all, what a tournament so far. Many close games, with several upsets. I don't know if I like the 68 team format, but would we have been able to see VCU make this run without it? I don't know if the committee thought they were the better 12 seed over USC or vice versa. Some blowouts for sure, but a lot of exciting finishes.

My favorite team is in the sweet 16 for the first time in 30 years with a legit shot at the final four for the first time in 26 tournament appearances (longest streak and going). This after the nation presumed they were dead with the loss of their leading rebounder. Congrats to them, and good luck against UF on Thursday evening.

I still think Duke will lose before they get to the final four leaving us with their coach hanging on to 2nd place in all-time victories behind Bob Knight. Of course it will happen for him, but I think next season. KU is alive and may never have to face a single digit seed until the final four comes around. Butler is showing its run last year was legit (despite what you think of the end of game officiating, they were in the right place at the right time). Arizona may be on its way back to supremacy (although they aren't yet in my opinion, they are making their way back with a great coach.).

I look forward to the sweet 16 and elite 8 this weekend for some more exciting and close games (I hope anyways). Go cougars!

Can BYU continue their hot streak?

Big game at SDSU this weekend. This will show a lot about the team and their future chances. SDSU isn't the best team in the MWC, but BYU has really struggled in San Diego the past few years. It won't ruin the season if they lose, but would be a large step forward in my opinion. Then the pit is coming up. That will be one heck of a game and should determine the Mountain West Champion. It is BYU's to lose right now, but if they lose at NM, it might not be there's anymore. Go Cougars, but watch out for the next week. Your biggest tests are coming.

Trent Plaisted and Lee Cummard

Lee Cummard made the right decision by returning to BYU for his final season. Trent Plaisted did not make a good decision by going pro. But, I believe BYU hoops is back and has a very solid foundation with or without him. He was very inconsistent in conference play again this year. It seems as the season goes on he gets weaker and less aggressive. Lee is the consistent leader that the team needs. With Trent gone, that should open more doors for Cummard as far as leadership and opportunities are concerned. Good luck Trent, I really do hope you do well and can have a successful NBA career. I just don't see you playing ball in the U.S. for very long.
