2 Shots in 2 NCAA Tourneys scored 2 Takeaways.

I watched. My eyes were fixed on two shots suspended in the air. One came on Monday. One on Tuesday. One, on the men’s side and the other, on the women’s. Both were the final two shots taken for their respective college basketball seasons. Two Shots. Two Tourneys. Two Takeaways. Let me tell you something. I can only stand eating one cheese curd, I sometimes pick off my mozzarella from my pizza, but I am a sucker for …

Changing of the Gard…

On the morning of December 23rd, just hours before his head coaching debut, Wisconsin's Greg Gard hopped in the car to drive an hour and fifteen minutes away. He had one place to get to.

Clement’s Day, Alvarez recruiting 101, and DiNardo Flashback….

He hadn't played since the season opener. And. He was a month removed from sports hernia surgery. Not to mention. He hadn't reached the endzone in 2015. So.
