Quick Final Four thoughts: Rooting for UCLA and Ohio State. Think it will be Florida and Georgetown.

Amaker to Harvard? Beilein or Kevin Stallings to Michigan? Iowa? Kentucky? Arkansas?
The coaching carousel is getting more and more interesting!

Simply to offset the pictures of Bruce Pearl, I offer one of Lucy Pinder.

As a follow-up to the previous story, Bruce Pearl is staying at Tennessee and states he has no interest in the Iowa job.

Can it be? Bruce Pearl may be returning to Iowa!!! Illini fans would just love that! Personally, I think he will stay at Tennessee where he seems to be building a nice program where others like Buzz Peterson and Kevin O'Neill failed. BTW, UIC Badger, Pearl was at Wisconin-Milwaukee for 4 seasons, so he went to the Sweet sixteen with his own recruits, not Bo Ryan's!

Back to back 20 wins season was not enough as Stan Health was fired by Arkansas. This article suggests that Billy Gillispie from Texas A & M is considered the front-runner for the Arkansas job. But if Gillispie is also being considered for the Kentucky job, why would he want this on. Then again, Kentucky fans think that Billy Donovan is all but wrapped up for the Kentucky job. But could it be that Donovan is more interested int he Miami heat job? Ahh, the coaching carousel turns and turns!

THE FINAL FOUR IS SET and UNc's collapse means its, Florida, UCLA, Ohio State and G-town.
Need to ask HM if he would allow PM to wear this shirt?

Hoyas: "Travelin' Man"
"I'm a travelin' man I've made a lot of stops all over the world And in every part I own the heart Of at least one lovely girl
I've a pretty Seniorita waiting for me Down in old Mexico If you're ever in Alaska stop and see My cute little Eskimo
Oh my sweet Fraulien down in Berlin town Makes my heart start to yearn And my China doll down in old Hong Kong Waits for my return
Pretty Polynesian baby over the sea I remember the night When we walked in the sands of the Waikiki And I held you oh so tight

Oh my sweet Fraulien down in Berlin town Makes my heart start to yearn And my China doll down in old Hong Kong Waits for my return
Pretty Polynesian baby over the sea I remember the night When we walked in the sands of the Waikiki And I held you oh so tight
Oh, I'm a travelin' man Yes, I'm a travelin' man..."

Maybe I was wrong in picking Vanderbilt (!!), but I was correct in siding with Miss Tennessee who became Miss USA just about the time that Vandy was getting robbed!

UNc v. Southern California: If you don't know who I will rooting for in this game, then you haven't been paying attention. Unfortunately, the Tar Holes will win this game unless Roy Williams returns to his tournament choking days and Tyler Hansbrough has another nose bleed!

UNLV v. Oregon: Oregon is the better team, talent-wise and I picked them to win in my bracket. But, there is something about UNLV in this tournament. Lon Kruger has taken a team to the Final Four (no, it wasn't the Illini) when he took Florida in 1994. This is a tough one to pick (allowing me to post pictures of both Miss Oregon and Miss Nevada), so I guess I will stay with my original pick of the Ducks.

Georgetown v. Vanderbilt: I am not a big fan of Georgetown. I mean, how good can a team be if it lost to Duke this year!? Okay, the Hoyas are playing very well thus far in the tourney. Georgetown has already beated Vandy this season. Vanderbilt-I like their coach, Kevin Stallings since his days at Illinois State, plus I would love to see an academic school advance (take that-Northwestern!). Georgetown definitely has the advantage in the frontcourt. Vandy has SEC player of the year Derrick Byars. Finally, one more reason why I'm picking Vanderbilt- check out that picture of Miss Tennessee!!!

Florida v. Butler: If you had seen my brackets, you would not be relying on my picks. I have to root for Horizon League member, a team that I have actually seen in person this year. Butler has three decent players-A.J. Graves (whom I believe was the Horizon League player of the year), Mike Green and Brandon Crone. Florida has a huge size and talent adavantage. For Butler to have a chance, A.J. Graves, at times a very streaky shooter, will have to have an incredible game. Plus it will have to be a game in the 50s or 60s. If the game is in the 70s or 80s, its over for Butler. Hopefully the Butler faithful will make the trip from Indy to St. Louis. Unfortunately, and I hope I'm wrong but, I just don't see the Bulldogs winning. Florida by 10.

Who is going to coach my beloved Wildcats now? Any suggestions?
Carmen Electra a lesbian?!?!

Here's one person who disagrees with Greg Doyel's take on Minnesota's hiring of Tubby Smith.

You betcha!! Tubby Smith takes the Golphers job! Here's a shocker, CBS Sportsline's Greg Doyel writes a NEGATIVE article.
Doyle blasts Minnesota for hiring Tubby.

Reports are that Josh McRoberts will be leaving DUKE for the NBA draft. No truth to the rumor that when McRoberts met with the DUKE coaching staff, Coach K stated: "See you later, you big cry-baby, er I mean Good Luck in the pros, Josh. We are going to miss your mom around here, she's a MILF!" Coach K later turned to his staff and asked: "What was I thinking when I named him one of the co-captains?!"

Da Bears sign safety Adam Archuleta!! Not only does this shore up the secondary, but more importantly rumor has it that Archuleta's significant other is Jennifer Walcott.

A new season of "Dancing with the Stars" starts tonight. Now I have never watched this show before, but I'm going to try to catch it for two reasons- Paulina Porizkova and Shandi Finnesey! Do yourself and rent the movie "Thursdays" to see former SI swimsuit model Paulina torture a man in the best possible way!
As for Shandi Finnesey, the pictures of her that I have seen on the internet, I can only hope that this BODY gets as much exposure as possible. As an added bonus, my girlfriend wants to watch to she if Heather Mills will lose her leg during any of the routines!!!
SWEET SIXTEEN! Despite the lack of major upsets, the second round of this year's tournament (especially Saturday's games-3 overtime games!!) has to go down as one of the most exciting round of tournament games ever! Here's a conference breakdown of the remainig teams:

SEC- 3
Pac 10- 3
Big East-2
Big 12- 2
Missouri Valley-1
Conference USA- 1
Moutain West-1
Big Ten-1

Hey, Badgers-look on the bright side. At least you didn't lose to Texas A&M-Corpus Christi!!

" Now that's what I call a headache!" In the words of 'Da Coach' : "This too shall pass."

Alright Duke-haters, go ahead and, ENJOY!

If I told my buddy, UIC Badger, once, I have told him a thousand times not to "flex" his muscles in front of the ladies!!

So here's my idea. We switch the Miss USA pagent to the Spike channel and we have the contestants actually test the swimsuits under water conditions! Just an idea!

Comedian Richard Jeni is dead of an apparent suicide.
About ten years ago, I heard Jeni do one of my all-time favorite comedy routines on how guys have to date women because you can't brag about masturbation at work the next day.

Bears trade Thomas Jones for a draft pick! Time to step it, Benson!!

You gotta love this quote from Royce Waltsman, recently fired as Indiana State's basketball coach when asked about his chances for another head coaching position: "Well, I can't get a head coaching job, because if you get fired for cheating you can get hired right back again," Waltman said. "But if you get fired for losing you're like you've got leprosy. Young coaches need to keep that in mind. Cheating and not graduating players will not get you into trouble, but boy losing will." picks Kevin McHale as the top GM in all sports!!! Beleive it or not, Billy King is also in the top five. Gee, my old friend Glen Grunwald was robbed- if he was still GM of the Raptors he would have been a lock for the top five and probably would have pushed McHale for #1!

My buddy, HM, has posted a story that Elle McPherson is having trouble getting a date! Well, this story may be just as good if not better-Supermodel Izabel Goulart likes fat dudes!!! Yes!!!

I'm pretty pissed at Tom Brady right now. If Giselle Bundchen wasn't in Europe with Brady right now then she would have been in the picture too!!

it looks like EVERYONE is happy with the Bears resigning Lovie Smith! Okay, I was just looking for an excuse to post this picture.

New contract for Lovie means tha he will make $4.65 million over the next five year. Wow, the Bears don't seem so cheap right now, do they?
