Welcome to our old friend, the 'Ladies of March Madness' series that always makes its appearance during this time of year when basketball is king for four weeks. The goal of the series remains simple: find hot cheerleaders from schools in the NCAA Tournament. While the office dork next to you is worried about who he should take in the Alabama vs. Creighton game, you're familiarizing yourself with ladies Verne Lundquist will be lusting after. Today we meet Caitlin - JUMP!
Of course you guys are going to drill us for another 'guess who ______ is dating' story, but this one really has value to your March Madness brackets. Syracuse senior guard Scoop Jardine enters the NCAA Tournament as the boyfriend of Michael Jordan's daughter, Jasmine. Why is that a big deal? Um, you think MJ wants Scoop coming around his house - with his daughter - is the 'Cuse get knocked out by Vandy? Nope. JUMP!
BC reader Michael Y sent this to us last night: Not quite a ESPN error, but a CBS one on the widely viewed selection sunday show. Apparently the 8th Seeded Wildcats in the East Region are 32-2. Good work, Michael. For those of you always bitching that we pick on ESPN, suck it. We'll gladly pick on CBS interns, too. Just so we're all clear, K-State finished the year 21-10 and do have a quality win over Missouri. Plan your bracket accordingly.
You can now go about life for about 10.5 months without hearing Joe Lunardi tell you his 'Last Four In' during your dreams. However, you'll be stuck with Seth Davis rambling nonsense until about 12:35 a.m. EST for the next three weekends. If there's nothing more American than apple pie, there's nothing more American in March than somebody being p*ssed off at a basketball analyst during March Madness. Last night the venom spewed. JUMP!
YAAAWWWWWWWWWWNNNNNNNNNNN. Oh, sorry, just reacting to Jay Bilas & his #1 Final Four. This scenario has only happened once (2008) in the modern tournament era (since tourney was expanded to 64 teams in 1985). Plan your bracket accordingly. So the trendy picks are Vanderbilt & Florida State...because they beat #1 seeds on Sunday? Makes total sense to us. (Alert: pick opposite of trends.) Kentucky is our pick. On a limb. Let's get rolling!
The NCAA Tournament selection show was tonight and they announced the number 1 seeds. Kentucky, Syracuse, Michigan State and North Carolina all were selected as those number 1 seeds. Are you looking for all the of the seeding and bracketology? Well Busted Coverage has you covered. We have the south, east, west, and midwest region seeding all for you. Watch the SEC get completely hosed. JUMP!
Well this Ohio State fan is definitely having some fun at the Big 10 Tournament dressed up in full XXXXL jersey, facepaint, and hoop net hat. This is the last game before the selection Sunday show and all of the brackets are set. The Ohio State Buckeyes and the Michigan State Spartans faced off in the final of the Big 10 Tournament tonight for the crown. Tom Izzo got T-ed up for cursing out a referee in this game. JUMP!
Yes, that is the mother of Anthony Davis and yes she is wearing a little white batman style mask. His dad also looks like he is missing some teeth. What can you expect from a Kentucky team? In the last game of the SEC Tournament, the Vanderbilt Commodores took on the Kentucky Wildcats for the crown. It's selection Sunday, so be prepared to see if your team made it into the NCAA Tournament or not. JUMP!
Duke's Quinn Cook drove to the basket against multiple FSU defenders and made an absolutely outstanding basket even though he was fouled. This all went down in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament where the FSU Seminoles took on the Duke Blue Devils. North Carolina fans watched in the crowd to see which team they would play in the ACC championship game. Photos and video after the JUMP!
The University of Kentucky actually paid for this billboard to be put up in New Orleans of Anthony Davis. They said it was done to promote the Big Blue Nation for the SEC Tournament and the NCAA Tournament. The Florida Gators took on the Kentucky Wildcats in the semifinal of the SEC Tournament today and Casey Prather of the Gators just slammed a dunk right in a Kentucky's player's grill. JUMP!
BC reader Jason, at LSU-Shreveport, checked in last night. "Saw this during a timeout of the Cincinnati upset over Syracuse... And he is #25." See what happens during March Madness? People start watching college basketball. Rakeem Christmas has started ALL but one game this season. Sidenote: he was born December 1, 1991. In NFL news this morning, the Colts are now an expansion team. Here are the roster casualties. Let's get rolling!
Someone please make it end. This tournament week just can't end fast enough for the ESPN Intern Department. We were asked on Twitter why we keep saying ESPN is firing interns over these f-ups. Well, because these errors couldn't possibly be made by competent employees. There are still plenty of games to go. Have your eyes open and when you send us ESPN fails, make sure to use the 'large' function on your iPhone: email@example.com
Would Jeremy Lin, compared by many as the Tim Tebow of the NBA for his Christian beliefs and ability to bring Skip Bayless to his knees, be in a nightclub with his Knicks teammates? Here's what we know about this photo that is starting to make its rounds on the Internet: that's Landry Fields (upper right) and Jared Jeffries in the Marines shirt. As for the two guys hanging with the white chicks? JUMP!
King's College, situated in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., has a women's Division III Sweet 16 game at 5 p.m. in Amherst, Mass. Meanwhile, in Cancun, one of the school's all-time leading scorers will be enjoying sun & whatever else kids do on spring break. Paige Carlin might have drained 1,000 career points at King's, but she chose to leave the team after Saturday's game and hit the Gulf of Mexico beaches. Sweet 16 with teammates vs. spring break? Who you got? JUMP!
The one area where Michael Jordan has been solid in his GM duties for the Charlotte Bobcats has been in the dancer department. What, he's not in charge of hiring dancers? Um, he should be claiming responsibility because the basketball team he puts on the court is horrid - 5-32. The only good news at a Bobcats game? You get to see Lindsay shake it during timeouts. Otherwise, this basketball outpost is a giant waste of time. JUMP!
At this point next week ESPN will need like 40-50 interns to replace all those fired this week over lazy errors during conference tourney action. Sure, the WWL has hundreds of thousands of minutes of coverage in a year, which will result in logo errors. You see, SDSU has a jackrabbit logo. Like these. Anyway, in MLB news, you have to see the fortune Indians manager Manny Acta got at P.F. Chang's. Let's get rolling!
BC can preach to ESPN staffers until we're red in the face about getting some rest before conference tourney Thursday. 49 f-ing games today. Of course ESPN was going to f-up along the way, but this garbage is just so blatant there should be an intern packing his backpack over this one. Lucky for us, BC reader Travis was watching and reported: ESPN needs to fire their intern. SMH. Shaking our heads indeed, Travis. NOT EVEN THE RIGHT CONFERENCE! SHAPE UP!
USA! USA! USA! If you really want to stick it to someone who's Hispanic or, we presume, some other nationality, you should just break out the USA chant. Why? Well, all the kids are doing it. It's hip. It's cool. It's the thing to do! Actually, we're just kidding. It's probably not the thing to do. In fact, it's probably totally idiotic. Some kids in San Antonio did it anyway after their predominantly-white high school beat a predominantly-Hispanic high school in hoops. Now they're in real trouble.
Nope, Mo Williams doesn't play for the Cleveland Cavaliers these days. He's actually a Clippers scrub. However, that isn't stopping Cavs.com from congratulating him - today - on his NBA All-Star game appearance - in 2009! Guess there is a glitch in the system because this splash page was live at 9:47 when the guys at Waiting For Next Year brought it our attention. By 10:17 the crack web crew had fixed things. Good work, boys.
