that doesn’t mean I’m not sneaking a peek.
First, about yesterday…
Truly, really, how does a Tennessee team that’s already lost to Alabama twice this season OVERLOOK them? That’s just a bad coaching/playing culture. Yes, the Vols will make it to the NCAAs, but this is the kind of bid that ticks me off. A less talented, more consistent team in a non-Power 5 conference won’t get the experience – and they deserve it a heck of a lot more. Boo.
Pretty amazing that Northwestern made it into the Big 10 quarters – but #9 Ohio State had no pity.
#14 Louisville squeaks out a win over #17 North Carolina State, 59-58.

Yep, we’ve noticed! Pat Caputo – OU women’s basketball, Jeff Tungate and turning a mess into success
It’s been a quick recovery for OU’s women’s program in the aftermath of scandal. Previous coach Beckie Francis was fired in 2013. Allegations surfaced Francis abused her players emotionally, and forced her religious beliefs upon them. Her husband, longtime OU president Gary Russi, resigned the same day.
Tungate, who was raised in Clarkston, was an assistant for OU men’s coach Greg Kampe. He was hired to pick up the pieces to the women’s program by former athletic director Tracy Huth and retained by current AD Jeff Konya. Oakland was 15-15 and 7-11 in the Horizon League last season, and 12-18 and 6-12 the season before.
‘’We’ve got a team with great chemistry that is committed to winning,” Tungate said.
