Great moment just now on the MSU/Kansas game...

Steve Wellmer, the ref, was injured, and Tom Izzo is mic'ed..so they cut to video of Wellmer talking to Izzo:

Wellmer: I made a cut, and something just popped, I don't know what it is...son of a bitch

*quick cut to Verne Lundquist*

Verne: Steve Wellmer explaining the nature of the injury

Commercial break

What is it with ESPN's cameras picking up Florida State's student section so clearly? They picked up a very obvious "bulls#!*" chant by the student section in last year's meeting with Duke and TWWL did nothing to hide it.

McDonough, with his weekly jab: "It's nice to work with a professional. And then there's Monday Night...."

L'ville-'Nova had a phenomenal finish.

And the worst part?

My version of Comcast not carrying the ESPN Full Court free preview. Bastards.

"If they get better from the line, and cut out the turnovers, they will improve." - Dan Bonner on GA Tech's struggles.

"MD's National Championship Trophy from the early 2000's" - Tim Brant(who's an alum). It was 2002, nice pregame research, Tim. (also known as the last year Gary Williams could still coach)

When I called to order Full Court this morning, the person on the
phone said "I dont know why there is two different prices here." ($75 or 4 payments of $18.75) 4 x 18.75 = 75. I'd like to thank this person's parents and teachers for the wonderful math education.

We get Time- Warner and we are not getting the free preview of Full Court either. Cheap asses.

Stay Classy, Comcast Motown and TimeWarner Cable.

And we no longer have CN8 anymore. It's Comcast Network Philadelphia and Comcast Network Mid-Atlantic, along with the el foldo of CN8 in New England. CSN is now running those channels. I smell a full conversion by the end of the year to CSN+ Philadelphia and CSN+ Mid-Atlantic.

no they will stay separate and the comcast network will be a smorgasbord of Comcast programming from all the networks. That's how I'm perceiving it as. I work for csn.
