Final 4 Intact….For Now

Well my final 4 is still alive! Even though I do have Florida winning their spot in the Final Four, like I wrote a few blogs ago my heart is pulling for UNLV.  I think I was one of the few not surprised that Vegas beat Wisconsin. I almost looked like a real expert when I predicted Xavier would beat Ohio State, and they would have if it weren’t for a missed free throw and a miracle 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the game to O.T.  When Xavier missed the free throw and Ohio State was dribbling down court why didn’t they foul? I was screaming FOUL HIM!!! They must have not heard me through my T.V.!

How about Butler?  That’s a great story and it could become greater with a victory over Florida. It will be tough, but they have beaten Notre Dame, Tennessee, and Maryland. And don’t forget about USC.  Not really known as a Basketball School, they are turning heads with a victory over Kevin Durant. (oops I mean Texas!) That’s not really a slap at Texas, but if they didn’t have Durant, oh boy! That guy is awesome!  And give USC Head Coach Tim Floyd some credit here. The guy who took a job nobody could win at, (The Chicago Bulls head spot right after the M.J., Phil Jackson years) deserves his credit. He’s doing a great job at USC.

Just a tribute to one of my favorite casinos in Vegas. The first hotel casino to let you gamble on sports. I know I’ll miss the Dust.

$$$$ Vegas Rollin’ With Home Cookin’

The UNLV Runnin rebels are reliving their glory years of Larry “Grandmama” Johnson and Greg Anthony and may be a force to reckon with in the NCAA tourney.  Today they are layin 3.5 points to BYU, who are having a good year themselves. But I look for UNLV to take care of BYU at home and win the Mountain West Championship.  Other plays I like today are Oaklahoma State +4 vs. Texas, Georgetown -2  to win the Big East tourney tonight, and the Akron Zips -5 to win the MAC tourney. Special bonus play is Arizona -1.5 in the Arena Football League.unlv-color.jpg
