Happy Tuesday WFNY! Finally….a week without any new Kevin Love drama! Well, I mean, you know…other than that whole leaving the game early with back issues, right? Or maybe he just said his back was hurting as an excuse since he knew David Blatt wouldn’t play him in the fourth quarter anyway! Zing! So now
They enter the dance as dark horses, longshots, sleepers, and underdogs. But since the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament introduced its seeding system in 1979, the biggest overachievers in March have always wound up going by one name: “Cinderella.” Incidentally, that is also the name of a brand new, live-action Disney film which—if I
March Madness comes to Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio on March 26 and 28, and the stakes could not be higher with four teams vying for the Midwest Region bracket’s birth to the Final Four in Indianapolis. Three-seed Notre Dame and seven-seed Wichita State will take the court first on Thursday night at 7:15
Happy Monday, you guys. How are those brackets looking? My one—yes, I only did one this year—is pretty much shot after Virginia and Northern Iowa went down this past weekend. Some day, I’ll learn to not doubt Tom Izzo and Rick Pitino come tournament time. This, unfortunately, was not the year. Need some morning coffee-drinking/While We’re
A March Madness run never seems long when you don’t make it to the second weekend and the Sweet 16. When the bracket was unveiled, it seemed as if Ohio State would be met with certain doom in the second game (I refuse to call it the “Third Round”) against title contender Arizona should they
In an era of 72-inch TVs, couches that will rub your feet, and Roombas that bring you the remote control, it’s easy to watch NCAA Tournament games from afar. Despite all of the modern-day amenities in the world, there is still nothing like watching your team in person. On Thursday, I was lucky enough to see my
I caught up with Andrew to discuss the fact that I missed all of day one of the tourney. We also discussed the Cavs and the Browns and other stuff like the following… Not getting to see the tourney and the torture Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins and Suh Placing Ryan Tannehill in the ranks
If the gradual parody of the college basketball landscape and the pair of 14 seed victories earlier in the day hadn’t already informed you, a 10 over a 7 seed isn’t much of an upset. In fact, the Buckeyes were the only double digit seed to be favored in Vegas. But, the Buckeyes did surprise
Live college basketball starting at noon and running for the entire day for four straight days. This four day period is like Christmas Day for me in late March. When you have your brackets all set and you think to yourself that these picks are correct (and most of the time they end up being
Ahh, what a glorious Thursday it should be. Spring is on the horizon, everyone’s recovery from St. Patrick’s Day festivities should be complete, and the Cavs rebounded from a nauseating game in Miami against the Heat with a thrashing of the Brooklyn Nets. After going down 13 early, the Cavs outscored the Nets 108-70 through
I can’t ever recall a dichotomy quite like this. The base support for this year’s Ohio State men’s basketball team has been lukewarm at best. A team some thought to be a top-20 contender languished for most of the season, stumbled into the NCAA tournament, and landed a No. 10 spot opposite 7-seed Virginia Commonwealth.
Happy Monday, you guys. We’re officially on Day 7 of the NFL Free Agency period and the Cleveland Browns are making the most out of each and every hour. They’ve managed to re-sign their punter, give a contract extension to their reserve defensive end and pay for a few guys to have some lunch while
It was just three years ago, almost to the week back in 2011, when an 18-year-old Kyrie Irving took to the basketball floor for the first time in what was a three-month span. Having sustained multiple torn ligament in his right big toe, Irving, one of the college game’s most heralded prospects, rejoined his team
Jay Pharoah was absolutely hysterical as he took a shot at doing Stephen A. Smith last night on Weekend Update. I even enjoyed when he lost his composure and cracked a small laugh and a smile. The only downside to this clip? It didn’t include last night’s host Louis C.K. who had some really hysterical
Hmmm…. something seems off. This gives all new meaning to the term “March Madness.” @darrenrovell Jersey being sold at a Foot Locker on Ohio State's campus pic.twitter.com/r2k4VNPKra — Brett Spivack (@BrettSpivack) March 24, 2014 Honestly, it took me a second to see it. I wonder if it’s just one or if there are racks and
Why not Dayton? This was the question asked for decades by the renowned Flyer Faithful. While the once-storied program consistently disappointed, mid-major after mid-major blasted through the gates of the NCAA tournament’s first weekend into the hearts of the nation.
Good morning and good week, my friends. I’m back, Captaining the Good Ship While We’re Waiting after a weekend full of Madness. Before you even begin to scroll, let’s make sure you threw WFNY a few votes for Best Sports Blog and Best Podcast for Cleveland Scene’s Best Of for 2014. Now, as we head
THE University of Dayton is living a dream right now in the NCAA tourney. After defeating Ohio State, the Flyers took down Jim Boeheim’s three seed Syracuse Orangemen 55-53. Oh, and they’re dancing. Literally. Dayton will play the winner of Kansas vs. Stanford, which tips off today just after noon.
In addition to our annual WFNY March Madness pool (which is free for all fans and readers), WFNY, in its ongoing efforts to give back to the Cleveland community, is helping promote a unique opportunity that comes in the way of Brackets for the Cure. Susan G. Komen’s Northeastern Ohio Affiliate is holding a March Madness challenge, sponsored by
I have no idea what WFNY will be giving the winner of the 2014 WFNY NCAA pool, but I’m (nearly) positive that it won’t be $1 billion. I’m also nearly positive that nobody else will be giving away $1 billion either, but that’s a different conversation for a different day. What I do know is
