It’s been fun slacking off and doing shit here on this site, but we must move to greener pastures. See us do the exact same thing over at http://sportsrantz.com/adammorrisoncrying/
Today’s matchups involve 3 vs 6 seeds. Slowly but surely, it’s getting more interesting.
The first matchup is Tyus Edney’s game-winning layup for UCLA to barely slip by Mizzou in the 1995 NCAA Tourney.
The next shot is Maryland’s Drew Nicholas sinking a three to beat UNC Wilmington in the first round of the 2003 NCAA Tourney.
This is also a 2 v 7 seed matchup.
The two seed here is US Reed’s game-winning halfcourt heave to give Arkansas the win against defending champs Louisville in 1981.
The seven seed here is Northwestern State’s shocking upset of 3-seed Iowa in the first round of the 2006 NCAA Tourney.
UPDATE: Reed moves on, by a vote of 2-1.
This next matchup features a two seed and a seven seed.
The two seed here is of The Coach’s Son. Bryce Drew hit the game-winning shot here to beat 3-seed Ole Miss in the first round of the 1998 NCAA Tourney.
The seven seed in this matchup is Danny Ainge going full court against Notre Dame to seal a BYU victory in 1981.
UPDATE: Bryce Drew moves on, by a vote of 2-1.
Bobby Petrino is definitely a great coach, don’t get me wrong. He’s just not that great of a person.
As a coach, he is very brilliant and led Louisville to an Orange Bowl and has breathed new life into the Arkansas program, including an 11-2 season last year and a Cotton Bowl victory, with an overall record of 34-17.
Anyways, by now, you should know about his motorcycle accident on Sunday. He was driving along and slid through a ditch into some trees and other things. Unfortunately, he wasn’t wearing a helmet and suffered some serious injuries including multiple broken ribs and cracked vertebra.
Then on Thursday, a new story broke. A very interesting side of the story that changes EVERYTHING. Apparently, Coach Petrino had a guest on his motorcycle when he wrecked. A lady guest. In fact, they knew very well. You see, Jessica Dorrell was a former Arkansas Volleyball player who had recently been hired as Arkansas’ Student-Athlete Development Coordinator. She is 25 and, Petrino acknowledged he was having an “inappropriate relationship” with her. The problem with this is that Petrino has a wife and four children.
Personally, I never liked Petrino as a person. He always seemed like a bad person in general. I mean, he met with Auburn officials to conspire against then-coach Tommy Tuberville. Then, while still at UofL, he persuaded a player into not attending a funeral for a friend. He then coached the Atlanta Falcons and left there mid-season causing some damage to the team in the coming years.
And now he’s on a paid leave of absence. Personally, I think Petrino should do what’s best for himself and the program and resign. But he won’t do that. Because, well, hey-he’s Bobby Petrino. What will happen? Only time will tell. That’s a cliched but true statement.
