So how’s your bracket looking after the first week of the NCAA tournament?
Hopefully better than mine, but aside from Pittsburgh I still have most of my Final Four teams left.
So the Big East gets 11 teams in the NCAA Tournament and now has only two in the Sweet 16?
The Mountain West has two teams in the Sweet 16. Is or was the Big East overrated?
Looking online this morning one of the State of Wyoming airplanes is headed to Richmond, Va., and St. Joseph’s Mo. today. Speculation is there are UW officials on that plane who will be conducting interviews to men’s basketball coaching candidates. The next two weeks should go a long way in UW making its hire.
Congratulations to former UW player Steve Gosar, who coached the College of Southern Idaho to the NJCAA national championship last weekend in Kansas. Josh Dees, the son of former UW men’s basketball coach Benny Dees, is on Gosar’s staff. Based on the comments on this blog, many UW fans support Gosar being UW’s next coach.
Got a call from a UW fan in Pine Bluffs who supports Wyoming native and current South Florida coach Jeremy Cox to be the next UW coach. Also got an e-mail from a UW fan who lives in New Jersey who suggested UW go after Rick Majerus, the current coach at St. Louis and former Utah coach. Majerus had a losing season at St. Louis this past season.
Spring football practice at Wyoming resumes Monday after a week off for spring break. According to his Twitter account, junior running back Ghaali Muhammad will have surgery later this week. Will try to find out more as the day goes on. The Cowboys’ first scrimmage of the spring is at 9 a.m. Saturday and is open to the public.
