Editor's Note--Well, when he's winning, he's really winning. When he isn't? He isn't. If you follow me. Why don't we all follow him again? With this 2nd round beginning. Who is him? Fughadeboutit--R.B.
Yeah a tougher day yesterday at 1-2. Today we start anew. A go go.
Richie, we heard you, when you said that people were guffawing at you, when you picked the BUFFALO BULLS, to go to the final four in your fancy bracket(s). People guffawing now? How's Calipari and his boys from Kentucky treating BUFFALO right now? No guffawing. We can tell you that. Upperclassmen, 4, count em, FOUR, fellows on the BULLS averaging 14 (FOURTEEN!) or more points a game. How do you defend that? You don't. You pray they cant stop YOU. We left the praying business awhile ago. The line is Kentucky -6. Yeah?! Really?! How come? Taaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake.
In keeping with the "upset" theme, LOYOLA-CHICAGO gets a "mere" 3 from "big bad" Tennessee. The RAMBLERS got a "mere" 2 from the U the other day. That was another BigDick winner. This team, LOYOLA-ILL, doesn't really know how to lose anymore. We'll gladly taaaaaaaaaaaaaaake the points again for another victory.
Finally, in the "fishy line of the day" category, we cant go entirely against the SEC...The GATORS of FLORIDA smashed a very good St Bonaventure team. A&M is a nice team, but do most of their good work at home. Yes the game is in Dallas, but that aint the aggies TRUE home, and FLORIDA travels well. Texas A&M lays 2. Like we said before, we don't lay 2 in basketball games. Everyone do the GATOR CHOP! Taaaaaaaaaaaake.
So the happy "1st day of the round of 32" recap: BUFFALO +6 vs Kentucky, LOYOLA-ILLINOIS+3 vs Tennessee, FLORIDA+2 vs Texas A&M.
Check back tomorrow before the 1st game for some "2nd day of the round of 32" action. Good luck. God bless. Enjoy the interestin games. Speaking of gettin interestin.....
