My longtime high school buddy Jesse Williams goes for the gold in tomorrow’s high jump finals at the London 2012 Olympics. Let’s go Jesse!!!!!
This week’s Five For Friday is going to rock out on some NCAA buzzer beaters. I gave you Tyus Edney and Bryce Drew the other day, but here’s five more that are worth peeping.
Ty Rogers of WKU beats Drake
Drew Nicholas of Maryland beats UNCW
James Forrest of Georgia Tech beats USC
Eric Maynor of VCU beats Dook (wish he could have done it again against UCLA last night, he got a good look)
Keith Smart of Indiana beats Syracuse

Well March Madness is here, and the brackets are now out. I’ll be guest blogging via The Good Look Newsletter for those of you who subscribe to that on some of my picks (if you aren’t a subscriber, go peep http://www.thegoodlook.net and check it out). Many a people have been asking me on my first impressions of the bracket. I have NOT filled out my bracket yet, so take these observations with the grain of salt which they are given.
For those of you who follow The Mixtape Monster Blog on Twitter , you probably saw me tweetin’ up a storm during the selection show about some of my impressions. In fact, I dropped so many of them, @BigSoda might have un-deviced a player’s updates. Hopefully not though.
Anyhow, some impressions:
- I am happy with UNC’s draw. Sure, Oklahoma is the 2 and Syracuse the 3, but overall I don’t think we have the hardest road to the Final Four out of all the number 1 seeds (which I felt we did have last year), so that’s a good thing. As is opening in Greensboro.
- The Boston College – USC matchup in the first round is going to be a GREAT game.
- I’m a little nervous for FSU against Wisconsin, though I think FSU is a clearly better team
- People need to be quiet about Penn State. They didn’t deserve to get in. How the Big Ten got 7 teams anyway is already beyond me.
- VERY intrigued by a possible Wake – Arizona matchup in the second round. Same for Texas – Dook.
- Clemson – Oklahoma could be another barn burner in the second round
- Everyone (even some random guy on Twitter) keeps telling me Missouri is for real. Still not sure if I buy it, and I don’t know why.
- VCU over UCLA in round one…..I MIGHT be picking that upset. Maynor is a beast, UCLA has disappointed all year
Remember, these are just quick impressions. Haven’t filled out my bracket yet, might let y’all in on some of those secrets when I do…but probably not.
One thing I can assure you of though….I’m picking the HEELS all the way, baby! No surprise there.
Your quick thoughts?

Listen to Lil Wayne and Skip debate some football on ESPN. Got this from the homey’s over at 2dopeboyz.
Also listen to Skip Bayless try to front like he’s a Lil Wayne fan.
