"Crow? Actually, it tastes like chicken. Are they serving it at the VCU banquet?" -- Twitter feed from Jay Bilas, after his pre-tournament criticism that VCU was unworthy of being in the field of 68
So, in 15 years, will the official NCAA record book show that John Calipari coached Kentucky in the 2011 Final Four? Or will this trip eventually be vacated as well?
Market Madness standings are updated, after having undergone a lot of weekend volatility. VCU earned a G$110 bonus for making the Final Four; Butlerís bonus was a scant G$80. The entry currently in 2nd place, Downard Dog, is effectively now long VCU, Butler, and Kentucky, while being short UConn. If Uconn loses to Kentucky, I like his chances Ė although I havenít done a formal scoring forecast for the eight possible combinations of Final Four games. Meanwhile, I made an entry on behalf of my dog, Rufus, based on canine mascots, and if it comes down to a Husky-Bulldog final game, I like his chances, with five longs represented by those two teams combined. Go figure. (In any event, if youíre worried about Rufus, be assured that he is not prize eligible Ė although I havenít told him yet.)
The top best ball score for the weekend in GuruGolf was a -44 by Cyberwahoo7. Interestingly, his four players posted individual scores of +4, even, even, and -2, but his best ball scorecard obviously worked out like a charm. Worst ball honors belonged to aptly named Rancid (+57).
