NCAA Title Game and the Cincinnati Reds

Well, the final four didn't turn out like I thought. At least I picked UNC! I think Mich St. and UNC should be a really good game and actually be close this time (see reg. season matchup UNC 98 - MSU 63). Now that Ty Lawson is healthy though, UNC should be on top at the final buzzer. YAY!! On a another note, Major League baseball starts back up!!! I like the Reds, my fav teams, roster this season. We don't rely on the 3-run longball and should actually produce runs by getting on and driving 'em in w/ hits. Not to mention the depth on the pitching staff. Harang should bounce back and be the very good pitcher he was before last year. Volquez I project will win 20 games. Arroyo concerns me a little bit, we'll talk about him more some other time (after we know what effect his carpal tunnel has). I think Cueto will be better this year and more consistant. Micah Owings can be very good on the mound too and is THE best hitting pitcher in the Majors. I really hope we can contend this year and w/ the talent we have and our new playing style, I think the Reds can. Go Heels and Go Reds!

Johnny Flynn's dunk

Just a quick note, but did you see Syracuse Guard Johnny Flynn's windmill dunk the other day? I did, and I thought I'd share it with you. What do you think? I find it amazing.

NCAA Tourney

What up y'all? Everyone is currently focused on the NCAA Tournament so that's my topic. I'd like to start with the fact I picked 13 out of the Sweet 16 correct. My Final Four is (drumroll) Louisville, Pitt, UNC & Memphis. Then I picked Louisville & UNC to play for it all w/ the Heels pulling out the win for the title. I wouldn't rule out UConn, they look really good too. I have to shout out the Dayton Flyers. Y'all made it to the second round. I really think they'll be back to the tourney next season since they only lose 1 player. Although it's off-topic, I'd want to mention the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now with the best record in NBA, we can get home court throughout the playoffs and bring one home and hopefully LeBron wins MVP. GO CAVS!!!

Green Bay Packers, Ohio State, LeBron and anything else that comes to mind

Hey y'all, this is my first post. First off, The dismantling my Pack received at the hands of the Saints Monday night (Nov. 24th). I thought the GB secondary could contain the NO offense (I discovered I was wrong five min. into the game...) Anyway, since I like the Saints, I'm not as upset at the game's outcome. I thought Aaron Rodgers tried his hardest to keep the Pack in the game. However, unless your name is Brett Favre, you can only do so much when your offense is one dimensional. I think the Pack will still make it to the playoffs cuz they play Chicago again and they play Detroit again (almost sure win). On to The Ohio State University, If we don't make it to a BCS bowl (Orange, Fiesta or Sugar Bowl), we'll still go to the Capital One Bowl and face Georgia most likely. I was hoping my second fav team, LSU, would get a rematch against the Bucks but that's highly unlikely now. Another thing, If OSU plays Georgia, we'll see arguably the two best running backs in the nation go head-to-head, me and myself (just kidding, Knowshon Moreno and Chris "Beanie" Wells). These guys can really dominate a game (duh). LeBron James, please stay in Cleveland. Unless the Cavs get one of the other superstars on the market in 2010, I don't really see Cleveland competing after LeBron. Right now I'm hoping Alabama beats Florida and goes to the National Title Game. All we need is for Florida to play for it all in their own state (reminds me of last year, LSU and OSU in NO). When a team in the title game is gonna play in their state, I think it should be moved to another, neutral site. I also think the BCS system stinks worse than a porta-potty. Look at all the really good teams out there, Texas, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Alabama, Florida, USC, Penn State and any other top of the line team that escapes my mind right now. Other than 2 of these teams, they will be cheated out of a chance for a title. I think a 8 or 16 team playoff would really rid us of these controversial situations almost every season. There ya go, some of my thoughts on sports, for now.
