Few things in life compare to watching Duke get drilled in the NCAA Tournament. Since my bracket collapsed on the tournament's first Thursday, seeing Duke players sitting on the bench with towels draped over their heads is pretty much all I had to look forward to this weekend. So thank you, Villnaova.
One programming note: you may have an extended blog post about Spencer Pennington in your future. Not saying it will happen -- just something to look out for.
On then with your weekend in links, or, other cool sites to visit aside from this one:
— Thankfully, SportsbyBrooks has a quick recap of last night coupled with a preview for the rest of the weekend, saving us the rest of the trouble. Also, Couch Slouch gave us this hilarious assessment of Clark Kellogg. Just remember this: you could always have Billy Packer back.
— Obviously, the biggest basketball-related story in Alabama right now is the courtship of Anthony Grant. As of this blog post, no news to report. Also, Mr. SEC wonders how much money Mike Anderson made for himself last night.
In other Alabama basketball news, the wheelchair did what 'Bama teams do: won a national title. Well played, guys.
— Thus far, three good things have come out of Lane Kiffin's hiring at Tennessee:
• A never-ending stream of comedy/bulletin board material.
• Tennessee has recruited well.
• Johnny Majors has come back to Knoxville. Hell, he may be the interim coach in a few years.
— Tony Barnhart checks in with 5 SEC Spring Questions, including what the heck has happened (and will happen) to Terry Grant.
— RBR has some news & notes from spring in Tuscaloosa.
— Finally, diamond vision: TCBB has a preview of the weekend in SEC baseball, and we go back to RBR for a preview of the Tide's big weekend softball series against Florida.
And that's that. Have a good weekend, and watch out for something on Spencer. I'm not sure I have the strength, but we'll see.
