Do you think your bracket did better than Andrew Mason’s? If you picked Nevada like he did, too bad. Andrew is at least doing well with the staff (minus Max Wolpoff) challenge.
We knew recording this before the Hockey East semifinals would stunt our ability to forecast much about the upcoming game against Northeastern, but Joel Farabee has something to celebrate, at least. Softball opened their home schedule on Wednesday and will largely stay in the Northeast through the rest of their schedule.
Did you fall for any of those close-calls in Day One of the NCAA Men’s basketball tournament? Or did you successfully navigate the minefield of “maybes” and “what if” teams?
Both the NBA and the NHL are getting ready for the playoffs, and both leagues have logjams out West and curious situations in the East. Andrew cannot stay for long, as his UC-Irvine Anteaters played right after we stopped recording.
