Syracuse has dropped to a #17 ranking in the polls. This could mean a #5 seed in the NCAA Tournament. That would set them up perfectly for that dreaded #12 upset of the #5 seed. A not-so-surprising end to this season.

The WBC has started and I don't care.

I'm sure the NCAA Tourny will be on three or four channels for at least the first weekend.That should make it easier to find a game that Dick Vitale ISN'T doing. If I hear "....BABY!" one more time, I think my head will explode. Why doesn't his?

So Cashman broke his leg. Because of the advanced age of his roster, I think he's making sure of the quality of the Yankee medical staff first hand.

Gonzaga is number One in the country. For those of you who don't know, Gonzaga University is located in Spokane. For those of you who don't know, Spokane is in Washington State. I don't think other teams will have to worry about any home-town advantage for Gonzaga in the tournament.

Dwight Perry must be very proud. (GO BULLDOGS!)

" NY GM Brian Cashman broke his ankle this morning skydiving. Who does he think he is, part of the Yankees’ putative starting lineup?"  -- Janice Hough
"Guido, one of the Milwaukee Brewers' racing sausages that went missing, has been found. This comes as a relief to his fellow mascots, who feared for the wurst.

"  -- RJ Currie
"Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, who ran a disappointing 4.82-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, says he ran it in 4.6 seconds while training for it. Of course, his girlfriend's irate father was chasing him at the time."  -- Dwight Perry
" In a recent stretch, Creighton played the Evansville Purple Aces and the Saint Mary's Gaels. This was to capitalize on that all-important selection committee rule awarding seeds based on the weirdness of the opponents' nickname."  -- Brad Dickson
"The Buffalo Bills plan to interview Manti T’eo at the NFL combine -- hopefully, in person."  -- Bill Littlejohn
"The New York Yankees are the oldest team in baseball. You can tell the clubhouse is full of aging guys. Several tested positive for Lipitor."  -- Alan Ray
"The NFL is investigating reports that several teams have asked players about their sexual orientation before drafting them. They've been asking questions like, "Do you have a girlfriend?" and "Is she real?"  -- Jimmy Fallon
