Picking the Men’s NCAA Tournament Field: February 23rd Edition

Photo by Scott W. Grau/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Updating from last week, various people on the NCAA Tournament Committee have further clarified/walked back the idea of using the Pairwise this year to specify that they meant they’ll use it within each conference to determine the rankings of that conference. Which is terrific, but not entirely helpful since, with an exception or two, that’s already pretty easy to do. The real difficulty in this process is going to be de...

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., wears a "Trump Won" face mask as she arrives on the floor of the House to take her oath of office on opening day of the 117th Congress on January 3, 2021.

A year ago, he was sure he was headed to Omaha. In August, he found himself in Wichita. Matt McLain shrugged and grabbed a bat. What’s 300 miles, if you’re looking for baseball? The UCLA shortstop played 30 games for the Santa Barbara Foresters last summer in the California Collegiate League. That led to the National Baseball Congress, a Wichita institution, and McLain homered in the final game. The Foresters outscored their foes 33-4 in the tournament, and they won it for the eighth time in 14 ...

Paying Off Debt is Risky ?

I have been attempting to raise my visibility on social media, lately. I have been commenting on Instagram and Twitter and it seems I have ruffled a few feathers. Evidently pay off debt is risky ?

Taking a Guess at the Men’s NCAA Tournament Field: February 1st Edition

These guys are probably fine. We’re now down to just 50 days until the field is supposed to be selected for the 2021 men’s ice hockey tournament. Obviously it’s a weird year and the Pairwise can’t be used with almost zero interconference data points. But if this tournament is going to be played—and even if this year feels like nothing like a normal year and will probably forever carry an asterisk, I still hope it is played for the players’ sake—somebody is somehow going to ha...
