Dick Vitale’s weirdest, wildest Selection Sunday moments

One of the great traditions of the revealing of the NCAA Tournament bracket is the annual bubble rant from Dick Vitale.  It seems that every year, Vitale becomes incredulous over one team (if not more) that have had their bubble popped.  It’s almost become a bit of a running joke to guess whose cause Vitale will champion each year. The annual tradition: Give your predictions...

Consider the Phoenix

Anxiety is a terrible feeling. You’re so nervous about something in the near future that time is warped. Sometimes things are going so quickly and you’re not ready for whatever’s about to happen. Sometimes you just want to get things over with, but time is moving too slowly. And the worst part? You’re past the point of having any influence over the outcome. You’ve done...

Murray State exposes painful flaw in NCAA tournament selection process

What might go down as the most exciting game of all the 2015 conference tournaments – not to mention the result with the most unfair of consequences, and the reason I’m writing this column – happened this past weekend in Nashville in the Ohio Valley Conference tournament. With 3.2 seconds left, Taylor Barnette of Belmont hoisted up a deep fadeaway three that caught nothing...

Try This Murray State Solution: Settle It On the Court

I love March Madness. There’s nothing like watching teams from small conferences battle it out for the opportunity to earn a spot on the big stage. However, I’m not suggesting that the process is perfect. Every year, it seems there’s a No. 1 seed that gets upset in the conference tournament and misses out on a chance to play in the Big Dance. It could happen again this spring...
