Basketball is running my life, so I can kinda ignore how terrible the Wings play sometimes....

  • Sorry no new blogs in a while, a combination of the flu, school, and Resident Evil 5 and of course, sports held me back. Hopefully this won't occur again.
  • MSU has played very well lately. A solid win over USC and defending champ Kansas has the Spartans with a Elite 8 showdown with the Louisville Cardinals. With Morgan playing despite a broken nose Lucas needs to step up and show the talent he did against KU. Mark it down, I am going on the record saying Kalin Lucas will be a serious contender for the Naismith award next year.
  • For MSU to win, they need to have everybody running on all cylinders. Suton doesn't have to stop a super talented big man like Aldridge and worry about foul trouble early. Allen needs to be the X factor he is and be lights out from behind the arc. Lucas needs to be the quarterback and score as well and we need our role players to do well as Pitino's bunch will be ready to play. I expect a great game and the Spartans have enough talent, coaching and drive to win. GO GREEN!
  • The MSU Lady Spartans lost in an absolute heart breaker against 4 seed Iowa State tonight. The Spartans let up 8 straight points to end the game, 5 coming off of terrible turnovers. The lack of a true point guard hurts MSU again. Dehaan and crew played well but weren't enough to go on to the Elite 8 after knocking off top seeded Duke.
  • The Lions accidentally leaked their new logo (or was it the NFL?) and I have to say I love it. Bubbles looks for meaner and rougher. The uniforms look not too much different (from the other leaked linked pictures I have seen) but I guess that's OK considering too much might result in ugly jerseys.
  • The Red Wings for the most part have played awful a lot this year. We out scored a lot of teams and that's about it. Osgood puts out a good game every five games or so and Conklin is still consistently the best, although hasn't played to the elite level we all expect from the Wings year in and year out. We need to clean this up fast our a first round exit is completely likely. Anybody have Hasek's number?
  • Pitt went down tonight in an amazing contest versus Villanova. After almost throwing the ball out of bounds, Pitt recovered and Levance Fields had ice in his veins making two free throws to (seemingly) send the game to Overtime. Nova then drew up an amazing inbounds play and made a shot with .5 seconds left to go to the Final Four. It is a worthy contender for best game of the tourney so far.
  • Findlay won the D-II Basketball championship over Cal-Poly Ponoma in OT with a long range buzzer beating three. What an awesome game from both teams giving it there all.
  • The Pistons are struggling to make the last playoff spot. When does free agency start again?
