Daddy’s Hangout 2019 NCAA Tournament Prediction

It’s that time of year again and that’s March Madness of course. Honestly, this is my favorite time of the year because anything can happen, and it usually does. Coming into the tournament, Duke is the overwhelming favorite and deservedly so. Zion Williamson is the phenom that everyone talked about and then some. In the ACC tournament, he became the first freshman since Kevin Durant to average 30 points and 10 boards in a conference tournament. There are quite a few other teams that have a gre...

Whicker: Here’s one very bustable NCAA tournament bracket

These NCAA tournament picks should go viral.

March Madness 2019: NCAA Tournament Midwest Region breakdown

North Carolina was the third team from the ACC to receive a No. 1 seed, following Duke and Virginia. Its selection is slightly more controversial. The two best wins on the Tar Heels’ resume came against the Blue Devils when they were without their best player. In both instances, their archrivals did not have their star freshman Zion Williamson on the floor. Williamson suffered a mild knee sprain in the early minutes during their first meeting in late February when his shoe split and later was ou...

March Madness 2019: NCAA Tournament West Region breakdown

Defense wins championships, the old saying goes, but high-powered offenses could ultimately dominate the West Region of this year’s NCAA Tournament. Three of the top 13 scoring teams in the country will battle in the West Region, led by No. 1 seed Gonzaga. The Bulldogs have the highest-scoring offense in the country at 88.8 points per game, but were held to a season-low 47 points in the West Coast Conference tournament final in an upset loss to Saint Mary’s. Sixth-seeded Buffalo ranks fifth in t...

Higher education: cannabis as a college course

For years, college students have unofficially majored in weed. Now universities are beginning to offer cannabis studies programs because, y'know, marijuana is where the money is these days. From the Associated Press: "We're providing a fast track to get into the industry," said Brandon Canfield, a chemistry professor at Northern Michigan University in Marquette. Two years ago, he proposed a new major in medicinal plant chemistry after attending a conference where cannabis industry represent...
