Records are made to be broken. And on this night, another mythical record fell. Whether you are a fan of Duke or not, you have to tip your cap to Coach Mike Krzyzewski. The man commonly referred to as Coach K is now the all-time winningest coach in Division 1 NCAA Men’s basketball. With the still very prevalent Paterno scandal unfolding, tonight demonstrated what doing it the right way is all about.
Coach K played for the great Bobby Knight at Army from 1966 to 1969. And though he was never a great player, he learned from one of the greats.

53-41. Not your average National Championship game, huh?
In a wild college basketball season in which there has been no clear cut best team, it has finally come to an end, an ugly end in fact. The Connecticut Huskies won their third National Championship Monday night, grinding it out against the feisty Butler Bulldogs in a low scoring, cold shooting battle. You simply do not expect games like this in the National Championship. Continue reading

The brackets are out. Let the journey to Houston begin!
The Brackets are finally officially set. No more speculation. No more bracketology. I will admit that what ESPN Bracketology specialist Joe Lunardi does is pretty remarkable. But it is made out as if his bracket is more important than the real thing some times. I will take the bracket presented by the CBS Selection Show every day of the week over Lunardi’s.
