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

March Madness: The 40 Greatest NCAA Cinderellas

csu-cinderella-banner

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.” Now, in perhaps the first incident of a sports-related countdown list being published on one

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

Russell, Bucks bow out to Arizona

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

Buckeyes in Rip City: One Alum’s Account of OSU-VCU

Ohio State

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

Not Done Just Yet: Buckeyes survive overtime thriller with VCU

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

March Madness, the NCAA, and Do Other Fans Hate Cleveland?: While We’re Waiting…

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

Don’t trust the computers on Ohio State in the NCAA tournament: WFNY Stats & Info

D'Angelo Russell Ohio State Buckeyes

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.

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
