Louisville's coach Rick Pitino definitely looks like he just lost a lot of blood and is looking for more. He was furiously running around the court in the first half as the Florida Gators drained 3 after 3 in Louisville's face. Both the Louisville and Florida cheerleaders looked hot as usual as the Gators and the Cardinals battled in the Elite Eight. Karl Hess officiated the game so there were a lot of "questionable" calls. JUMP!
Of course Asher went out and found a Syracuse cheerleader to ogle during tonight's 7 p.m. game against Ohio State. Her name is Siena and she has the usual photo gallery that you guys like. Dirty schoolgirl Halloween costume, standing over a passed out bro, etc. In other words, she'll keep you company during the CBS timeouts. For those of you planning to gamble on the game, you should note that the Buckeyes are -3. More of Siena - JUMP!
The Kansas Jayhawks had just wrapped up a 60-57 victory over N.C. State last night so of course the TBS cameras wanted into Bill Self's lockerroom to get the post-game speech. Congratulations, boys. Blah, blah, blah. Oh, and then Bill reminds certain players that they'll be "taking a leak" after media. Can't say we knew college basketball players were subjected to random drug tests. JUMP!
The story of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old black Florida boy killed by a 28-year-old Hispanic, has brought race in America into focus once again. Martin's killer hasn't been prosecuted because he claims he shot the boy in self defense. The story has made people take notice, among those, the Miami Heat, who today showed support for Martin, and Geraldo, who pretty much just said something stupid.
Here's the thing when BC tries to find hot Xavier cheerleaders to get you guys excited for tonight's Sweet 16 game against Baylor - it's nearly impossible. Again, this is Xavier, a private school where chicks don't usually end up for cheerleading. Asher did his best and came up with Ashlee. She seems to be cool enough. Rockin' body, party attitude and hoping for some face time on CBS this evening. JUMP!
Lesley Visser's face was all the rage last night because people sure as hell didn't see in during the first weekend of March Madness, right? Folks, her face has been like this since football season. Where have you been? So leave it to Spokane CBS affiliate sports director Tim Lewis to lead the dickish charge last night towards a CBS sideline reporter. If this came from an ABC or NBC sports director it would make sense. But, CBS? Shame on you, Lewis. JUMP!
Yes, ESPN fired a mobile app editor last night. No biggie. Just another day, another job opening. (via @Sniff009) As for the other games, we'd like to give a special shout out to Bo Ryan and his Wisconsin Badgers for running out the clock on their season and then going for a high-percentage shot from beyond NBA range. No reason to drive and dish. No reason trying to draw a foul on a drive. In NHL news, have you found Paul Bissonette's underwear? Let's get rolling!
Did you guys remember the Sweet 16 gets started in a couple hours? Yeah, nearly forgot, too. The night gets rolling with Wisconsin-Syracuse and Louisville-Michigan State, followed by Cincinnati-Ohio State and Florida-Marquette late. Ohio State seems to have the edge on the inside against the Bearcats, but we'll guarantee you won't see a cheerleader like Ashley on the Bucks sideline. This war goes to UC. JUMP!
And the @AdarnSchefter account strikes again. It's all so damn confusing! Fake accounts! Tebow to Jags! Tebow to Jets! How a fake account with only 85 followers can troll so damn hard is amazing. Remember, all it takes are a few RT's and the run is on. You've been warned. Adarn is on the loose. How about this synergy between SportsCenter and its stud NFL reporter. Solid. In NBA news, how about the return of Linsanity. Knicks win again! Let's get rolling!
You see that giant bald-headed goon under the basket. Pay attention to that goon. His name is Mick Pennisi and he plays in the Filipino Basketball League. Seriously, he looks like some goon you'd find pounding drafts at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas. Or the Excalibur. The purpose of giving Mick run on BC today is this flop video featuring Mick. Think soccer players are horrible? You haven't seen sh*t yet, son. JUMP!
Of course the IU students are fired up over their Sweet 16 showdown with the hated Kentucky basketball program (via @skeetntweet630). Is a 'Kony Supports UK' banner a little over the top? Not a bit. Round one of the UK-IU fan banner war easily goes to Bloomington. Where you at, Lexington? Send pics: firstname.lastname@example.org - In NBA news, how about this Jeremy Lin kid. Out of nowhere he goes for 18 & 10 on the Raptors. Gotta get his jersey. Let's get rolling!
Allen Iverson's soon-to-be ex-wife is not playing nice and boy, are we surprised. Tawanna Iverson has requested a list of every woman Allen has slept with since they've been married. Oh, and she wants their phone numbers too, presumably so she can track them down and get in some cat fights. We're here to explore the situation as well as give you the dirt on the Iverson's divorce proceedings. JUMP!
Former Boston Celtics & Miami Heat multi-millionaire Antoine Walker has fallen pretty far since his (kind of) glorious NBA days. Walker is having a little financial difficulty. He filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and was just forced to sell his 2006 NBA Championship ring. It fetched a nice price, but isn't going to come anywhere near paying off Walker's debt. Oh, and did we mention Antoine is playing in the D-League? Gotta make a paycheck somehow, we guess. JUMP!
We're headed to the Pacific Northwest to check in on the Portland Trail Blazers' Dancers. Specifically Amanda, a gorgeous blonde with a big smile! An outdoorsy kinda girl that loves to fish, bike and hike, Amanda also knows a thing or two about wearing tight ass dresses that show off all of her best parts. She's also persistent. It took this firecracker five attempts before she made the Trailblazers dance team. JUMP!
Via: A Sand Springs basketball coach was arrested Saturday morning on a felony rape complaint after meeting a 17-year-old student at a hotel for sex, according to her arrest report. Erin Kathleen Queen, 27, was arrested at 5:30 a.m. Saturday on a complaint of first-degree rape after telling police she had sexual intercourse with her 17-year-old student at the Candlewood Suites at 10008 E. 73rd St., according to the report. Here's her cached Twitter account. Note: she's married!
How about Kyle & those Kansas Jayhawks? Massive amounts of wild hotel sex last night in Omaha. Kyle just getting drunk at the hotel bar & picking up slutty Kansas chicks. What? That's his son to his left? Doesn't look a bit like his father. In other March Madness news, how about Ohio? 25% of the Sweet 16. One team headed to Elite 8. Ohio U. to face a point guard-less UNC. Only 2 Sweet 16 teams from west of the Mississippi. Wet dream for CBS. Let's get rolling!
How funny is the Missouri loss to Norfolk State inside Kansas? It's so funny that even the nightly news dorks are just laughing in your face, Mizzou. Here is WIBW-13 in Topeka coming back from commercial break and this anchor chick just blatantly laughing at Tiger Nation. You might remember how these two states hate each other and that Mizzou has never been to a Final Four. LOL! LOL! JUMP!
All is not lost for the Duke basketball program. Most of these guys have a NCAA tournament ring, so why not bail early, get home and hit some faux Irish bar in Durham that opened at 5:30 this morning? Makes sense to us. Guess how many tournament wins Lehigh now has in its history. One. Guess Duke's FG% from 3-point range last night: 23%. Boys, when you fire 6-of-26 from three, you're going to lose to a #15. Kudos. Let's get rolling!
Things have been going badly for Dallas Mavericks forward Lamar Odom this season and it looks like he's isolated the reason -- his wife, Khloe Kardashian. We told you so. Lamar reportedly blames the couple's stupid reality show for taking his focus off the game and has decided to take a step back from his marriage. He's apparently even gone so far as to stop having sex with that disgusting-looking woman. It's about time. Come back to us, Lamar!
Yeah, the quality on this pictures is absolutely terrible. Blame it on TNT's shitty HD cameras. This Norfolk State cheerleader wanted to show off her tongue ring to the world. I'm sure your parents are real proud of your accomplishment cheerleader. Norfolk State is actually giving Missouri all they can handle right now as the 2 seed takes on the 15 seed in Omaha, Nebraska. JUMP!
Logically, Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol celebrated the fact he didn't get dealt before the NBA trade deadline by singing. Okay, maybe it's not totally logical. Gasol did, however, attend a fundraiser last night where he was more than happy to jump on stage and show off his vocal stylings. He needs to stick to playing basketball because he sounded terrible. That's not to mention his song selection left a little to be desired. Here's the video.
Normally we wouldn't kill a CBS intern over missing the 'i' in a case like this. However, this graphic was cued up and waiting to drop at the end of last night's games. Someone better get their intern resume together. BC tried to warn CBS not to get all LOL at ESPN fails. Kudos to Kige Ramsey (YouTube Sports) for the grab. So your upsets are Wichita St. & UNLV going down (full scoreboard). And how about the Big East. West Virginia plays like garbage & UConn loses. Let's get rolling!
Have the games been kinda boring this afternoon? Not if you're a racists at the Kansas State vs. Southern Miss game, according to our friends at Buzzfeed. According to the audiologists, that is the Southern Miss band chanting 'Where's your green card?' to freshman guard Angel Rodriguez during the Wildcats 70-64 victory. Would you expect anything less Mississippi rednecks? JUMP!
Make sure you get a good look at this ESPN YouTube video cutline that was online last night for at least 40 minutes, according to @SportsTalkPhila. As ESPN editors write about La Salle's Ramon Galloway's father: "His father in the crowd, doesn't seem to be paying attention." Well, pops has a good reason. HE'S BLIND! Was shot in his early 20s. Of course the ESPN error has been changed, but not before screencaps went out. So, so good! Let's get rolling!
Anyone know who FUK LBJ shirt bro is? So we want to congratulate him on that red watch that's about as gay as Lebron's purse. We're calling it a night. Gotta get rest for 12 hours of March Madness. Send intel to the email account: email@example.com
Of course Thursday is a holiday for 85% of American men who could care less about college basketball for 10.5 months out of a year. Of course you wouldn't sit at a bar and watch Syracuse vs. UNC-Asheville in December. Of course Ohio State vs. Loyola-Md. looks like a blowout on paper. But we're all watching. Intently. Is there anything better than gambling, college basketball and cheerleaders on a Thursday afternoon? No, there isn't. JUMP!
Not a good night for Mississippi Valley State and Iona. So I went to bed with the Gaels up 15 at half after running BYU's asses into the ground over 20 minutes. Figured this one was over. No need to stay up. Guess who scored 17 2nd half points and lost by 6? I-f*cking-ONA. In NFL news, everyone is gagging over the news that Brandon Marshall is headed to Chicago to reunite with Cuntler. Remember, championships aren't won in March. Let's get rolling!
This Chicago Bulls fan loves New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin. So what does he do? He spits in his hand (and tells us about it repeatedly) and then high fives Lin and his teammates as they run onto the court. It started what was an all-around crappy night for Lin, whose team lost to the Bulls in Chicago. We kind of wish someone would have punched this kid in the face, but unfortunately, that didn't happen. Here's the video.JUMP!
Via USA Today: Syracuse sophomore Fab Melo will not play in the NCAA tournament due to an eligibility issue, the school announced Tuesday afternoon. Melo did not travel with the team to Pittsburgh. In other words, homeboy isn't using the tutors provided to him very well. What we do know is that Melo still found the time to tweet throughout the day. We were shocked to read that he's not exactly a Twitter moron hoodrat. (@Melo_elo51)
So Maria Menounos was at Sunday's Celtics-Lakers game and we really don't have any sort of story to tell you here. Yes, Maria is still all together at 33-years-old. The arms aren't getting droopy. The face isn't starting to fall apart. But, this is how bad things are for the Celtics organization. Not only is the basketball team ancient, so is the superfan. Not that we'd kick Maria out of bed. However, when your superfan is 33, the program is in trouble. JUMP!
Via: After two sixth grade teams played at the Holy Name School in Springfield, Mass., for the boy's championship basketball game, police received a report of a disturbance. Police said the assistant coach of the losing team, Timothy Lee Forbes, 34, of Springfield assaulted the coach of the winning team after the game and bit off part of his ear. The victim was rushed to the Baystate Medical Center emergency room in an ambulance to reattach the ear. #SMH
Oklahoma City's own Kevin Durant is giving Seattle the old heave ho. At least, he's giving his old Seattle pad he heave-ho. So, his franchise got up and moved from one of the coolest cities in the west to one of the, uh.... Waffle House-havingest cities in the west. Durant held onto his Seattle pad even after his franchise bolted, but hell, it's time to unload. KD's old pad, which we're pretty sure Bigfoot p*ssed on, is on the market for $2.8 million. Here's a look.
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!
