    ESPN announced their #1 college player of all time tonight. And number one was fine. Lew Alcindor was probably the greatest college player. The thing I don't understand is how Pete Maravich dropped to #5? He averaged 44 pts a game throughout college, he's the all time NCAA scoring leader. And he was a wizard with the basketball in his hands. He should be in the top 3 IMO.

    For all of you who love March Madness, upsets, and rooting for the underdog, you may want to pay some attention to the English FA Cup. I will try to equate what has happened this year with familiar March cliches. Barnsley (a "#12 seed" from a mid-major) is now in the Final Four and they did it by beating Chelsea and Liverpool (two "#1" seeds). Also, the other two "#1" seeds are out (Arsenal and Manchester United). All that remains in the Final Four are Portsmouth (a "#3 seed), Barnsley ("#12"), Cardiff (another "#12), and the winner of the West Brom (a "#12 seed") and Bristol (a "#14"). That is three double digit seeds. This is completely out of control.
    The semi-finals will be played on April 5th. Stay Tuned.

    Finally, about the tournament itself, I think this is as wide open a season as I can remember. There are at least 10 teams that can make the final game, let alone the Final Four. Here's hoping that it is not Louisville.
