Brent Musberger wants you to bet on Joe Lunardi’s bracketology

Every Brent Musberger broadcast carries the alluring possibility he’ll sneak in a gambling reference, usually by alluding to an over/under or getting a bit too excited about a last-second basket that happens to affect the point spread. Musberger usually veils his references enough to avoid alienating the gambling averse, but during the first half of Monday night’s Texas-Oklahoma...

Oklahoma-Kansas St. Preview

It's not that hard to believe that Buddy Hield and Isaiah Cousins will end their college careers having never won at Kansas or Iowa State.
