I would buy the outrage towards the Fiesta Bowl and the misuse of its funds, if the NCAA would open its books and show us all it does.
In fact opening the books seems to be a big deal these days so maybe the NCAA should show us how it plans to distribute all its dough following next Monday’s championship game.
The Miami Heat took another step towards that June championship last night.
Its 1983: Butler-VCU, is actually North Carolina State-Georgia…UConn-Kentucky, is actually Louisville-Houston.
Everyone then thought the NCAA title game was the epic dunk-fest between the Cardinals and the Cougars. But it was NC-State that ended up winning the whole thing.
I’m going to get out in front of my brackets (because I usually wait for a winner before writing them in) and take the victor of the Butler-VCU game next Monday.
And the winner of the Butler-VCU game?
Big Tony has been summoned for the Bond’s trial to answer questions about excessive use of the human growth drug…Details still pending.
We’re a little worried around the office he might let everyone know we are all hooked on the Slam-Burger at Denny’s.
I don’t cover much softball, definitely not enough to apply nicknames but this one was sent to me. After Temple City Lady Rams Jessica Loicano and Sami Jakeway led their team to a 5-4 victory over Monrovia on Tuesday it has been suggested they be called: “Sisters of Slam” (?)
Great nickname, those girls can thump the ball, but you tell me if the moniker is works?
Sorry when I see Ryan Mallett, I see Dan McGwire (who went to Claremont).
Who is Brandon Jauregui? And why is Arroyo excited about this guy?
Line of the Day: “Remember everyone is one hit away from needing a quarterback.”— Herman Edwards.
After red-shirting in 2009 and battling hamstring issues in 2010, former Rosemead kicker Bobby Maldonado is ready to assume a starting role at Mt. SAC this fall.
Locally Maldonado came to prominence as a sophomore when he kicked a 41-yard field goal in the final seconds of the Panthers 23-21 victory over South El Monte in 2006. The win gave Mead a three-way share of the Mission Valley League title with South and Arroyo.
It’s odd how the world has changed with football programs taking dead period as early as June these days.
Nice work by Andy in remembering Bobby V. (check out the story; “Matador Till the End”)
George Katrib, Diamond Bar, may be the best wide receiver people don’t know enough about. Very, very good.
Last Add 1983 NCAA Finals: I missed the championship that year. Oh, I’ve missed the NCAA finals before; mission trips to Mexico emergency rooms at the hospital, but 1983 was different.
In 1983 I was playing in a ridiculous city softball league at Whittier Narrows. How stupid was that? Never again, I vowed to never play city league softball. Twenty-eight years later, so far, so good.
Stay thirsty my friends…
