    Yeah that sucked for Mahomes, and now he has to deal with life following being on the wrong end of two OT results. Though I really don't feel that bad since it looks like Kansas City will be okay for years to come, while Texas Tech could be very good going forward. It's more probable than not that TTU won't get back to this stage as there are so many teams that are good and you have to win 4-6 games before losing in order to be there in End City In the end, while one off night is all it takes to be done, Chris Beard has done well and IMO is the guy that will have the team in the conversation as being a team that can win it all. Of course, the coach will have to succeed before the typical thing of going a more prominent school happens!

    The NBA

    Don't think it matters, IMO, whether Luke Walton was great because of Kerr or got hired because of his Dad or got an opportunity over a 39-4 record. I personally think he's pretty good. Not great at all but pretty good. I think the players in Golden State had more to do with Luke's success thank Steve Kerr. Either way however he got the job as HC or fill-in, it was unsuccessful for Walton and LA, and the man has to go. I think he can do well elsewhere. If he's allowed to return to G.S. when he's fired then with a do-over and the right team & circumstances it would be an improvement. The Lakers have just sucked over the past half-decade

    As much as I feel sorry for the players I don't. Though I could say as much as I don't feel sorry for the players I do. I have to admit I'm in the group that's saying that the players that are now out of work weren't good enough to be in the NFL, and maybe should have something to fall back on. For example, their degree and/or a skill acquired prior to their professional career That being said, it sucks for the players. This league was never going to work. Total poor planning which could've been better. It's sad because people are unemployed; really while it was inevitable, it would have been nice if they completed their season Sorta hope Mr. McMahon changes his mind. Although I think he might figure out what went wrong and produce a more successful product IMO, the football fix is overrated. Several people mentioned this over the past couple days and during the AAF season, for your "football fix" you didn't need more football. The Combine, Draft, Hall of Fame, TV Shows, Drama, and Free Agency Period was more than good enough. Several people have said that the buildup and stories were better than the game! As much as I love football, the love has lasted due to management of viewing football. Post Superbowl it's over, and it's emotional. However, by August I ready to go back to football. No defense for the players having to pay for their flights home. I don't care whether it was obvious that the AAF would fail; that is messed up since it appears that it came as a total surprise, and it's still messed up

    Just my opinion, but I guess it's safe to say or assume that the NBA didn't lose sleep over losing to the AAF in ratings (on February 9 during their big primetime game prior to the All-Stars)

    It's a moot point, but it's not truly perfect until a 173-0 mark has been achieved! For me I'd get spoiled more often than not before hand but that's okay. It's not worth it especially when you consider a game could last until 5:00 AM EST or whatever. I could do without early games too, but it's tradition in terms of Opening Day and I personally can deal with AM sports anytime

    While I agree about how Coach K should consider hanging it up I sorta hope he waits for about 4 years or so! I can't say that following what Coach Cal has done has been a total disaster for Duke. JMO; in a one-and-done tourney, there is a major difference between going out right away and losing right before end city to a great coach and a great program by one possession. However, like many other sports, when winning the title is the main objective, criticism is totally fair With whatever time Coach K has left I'm hoping he could mix seasoned players in with one-and-done players. At the end of the day upperclassmen are a better bet than ready for NBA players

    Meh on Duke. Totally anything but a shocker that they went out. Sure it came close three times, but there was some fear that they would lose right away on March 22. But it was still a close game against a team that is very good. Either way, Duke being out is opposite of something I'd lose sleep over. I would love to see MSU/UVA as well, but I don't know if MSU can survive against Texas Tech. IMO, these games are going to be the most difficult games I've had to guess from in quite a while. Virginia has what it takes to knock off Auburn but they were blessed to defeat Purdue

    Sorta wished I did, as I would have been 8-0 for the day (which means nothing by the weekend unless most of my picks hold at the very least)

    Funny you mention the Pats. Similar to the two, for me the "hate" has died down and it's more of respect while saying "Man, that team does it again!" Zion won't be back next year, but the Blue Devils look to be positioned to win in four different decades and being relevant in five. It's the First Four segment of March Madness. Not really feeling the play-in 16 seed games. Personally, it sucks that a conference winner may end of losing before the real fun starts Thursday at noon. While it sucks for Temple, they were in a "fight-for-it" play in game where prior to 2011 they might have missed the dance by one. As a result, those play-in 11 seed games are more watchable IMO

    What is...In the Media?

    Such painful news. Like others, I have total respect for Mr. Trebek. I really liked Alex's work outside of Jeopardy, as he was a solid member of the Goodson-Todman era before (and a bit after) becoming the Jeopardy host. I hope he's able to keep doing what he does but as mentioned, he deserves the proper send-off and retirement to be able to spend time with his family. Moreover, missing him on Jeopardy pales in comparison to one's life, so I'm wishing for a speedy recovery; take care.

    Man, if the 2000 Baltimore Ravens played against the Rams today, the score would have been 30-3 with several defensive turnovers and scores

    Should be 28-24 Pats but based on how & why they win, 65-0 Pats sounds more reasonable IMO Hope for a great game, but at least if it gets out of hand I can turn in early. Just like Superbowl 51 It's about time! As mentioned, it's amazing how the Pats are the only dynasty (between the Steelers, Niners, and Cowboys) that lack hall of famers, so apart from Ty Law being selected, we may be seeing Pats players start to get in before Brady and Bill get there (Seymour and Vrabel, Moss last year and Revis in 2023)

    Gronk? That might be just me, but a guy that acts the way he does, but still brings it and backs it up is worth it. I don't know if Rob is a first-ballot HOF but IMO he is a HOF'er. I think he'll need to play another 9 seasons at an average level at best (or maybe just 5 more) and be healthy for the most part to make it in his first year of eligibility. I don't know whether he'll get there, but I can't say I saw vintage Gronk returning this month either

    Personally, I don't feel bad for St. Louis based on what you said. They do have a team in another sport that is similar to the Pats in terms of being relevant and consistent. Not to mention the ability to acquire premium talent within a division that includes teams that can't beyond a fan's control or even a team's control. As for the Rams themselves, there are several players on that team worth rooting for (some others not so much). Mainly Aaron Donald. Personally I'm glad to see him get to complete a season (meaning get to the Superbowl). I thought LA would have to wait another year or two especially given how it was all but impossible to win in the Superdome, and then next year have to worry about teams like Seattle, San Francisco if healthy, Philly and Chicago (in addition to New Orleans). Yesterday I "made" my pick on the Pats winning since it was immediate reaction and my pick before Week 1. However, I sorta might relax and wait until next Friday to make that official. New England (who has several players worth rooting for as well) has what it takes to beat everyone with anyone on all 3 stages of the game. The Rams just went into the Superdome and won, something that didn't really get mentioned. Sure Philly almost did it last week, but they were up 14-0 whereas LA was down 13-0. It'll be tough for the Rams to win, but I think it's very possible. They were the last team standing and have a complete team. Not really rooting for any team either, but not rooting against either team. I think Super Bowl LIII has a chance to be a great game and maybe the best in history. Maybe not beating Super Bowl XXV but I'm hoping for a good game and nothing like Superbowl XLVIII
