NCAA Tournament Insider: A Record of Madness, Wet Your Whistle, & Promises, Promises

Mar 20, 2015 by Robb Todd

Everyone knew there would be upsets, but not as many knew which teams would be upset. Who picked UAB over Iowa St., raise your hands?

Well, maybe you picked Georgia St. too. Maybe you’re a genius! Maybe you thought about picking Wofford over Arkansas because of The No. 5 Jinx but changed your mind at the last second.


You also never doubted that the NCAA made the right choice with UCLA and you are all in favor of NOT reviewing goal tending calls. Sorry, SMU.

There were a record five 1-point games yesterday—madness!—but that’s all history. We have to live in the now and now you need to know this:

A breakdown of every game today.

Even better: a breakdown of every game based on “watchability”

A story that will teach you more about the referee’s whistle than you ever thought you wanted to know

Unless you can back it up, don’t ever guarantee victory against Georgetown’s John Thompson III. Ever: “I kind of looked down there at him. Thought he didn’t fit the bill, guys that usually guarantee victory. Our guys were fired up about that.”
