Yeah...you better believe it...
So, since I was in orientation all day yesterday, and then got home to find out that my internet was down for most of the evening, I didn't get to make a post. No worries though. Cheers and Jeers will keep rollin on.

Cheers to Mykal Riley's buzzer beating 3 pointer, which ended up saving many many lives. If he doesn't hit that shot, everyone pours out into the streets of downtown Atlanta, in the middle of an F2 tornado. Exactly.

Jeers to mother nature. C'mon man, can't you just let us have our basketball tournament in peace? I mean, seriously. There was no way you could've just made it an F1 tornado so it doesn't blow a hole in the roof and all that? Oh well. I, and my golf game, appreciate the good weather yesterday here in Memphis anyway.

Cheers to spring practice rolling right along without incident. No arrests, no injuries, etc. Let's hope it stays this way.

Jeers to Les Miles' contract, which says he has to be no less than the 3rd highest paid coach in the country. LSU bumped his salary up to exactly $1,000 more than Nick Saban's this season, which is rather humorous to me. :-)

Cheers to this Bama basketball season being over. Rather than enter a tournament competing with the NIT and the NCAA tournament, and risking $60K to host a game when they students aren't on campus, the University declined an invitation to the CBI tournament on Sunday. I think that I would have to agree with this one. This year was dreadful, and rather than spend more money to continue playing and possibly embarrass the school with a loss to Valpo, or somebody else, they decided to just call it a year and work towards next season. I'm down with that.

Jeers to the NCAA tournament for leaving out a really good Dayton team who beat lots of quality opponents, and for putting in an 18-13 Oregon team as a 9 seed, and a 19-14 Arizona squad, who looks dreadful at the moment, as a 10 seed. Ridiculous.

Cheers to Memphis getting a number 1 seed in the South Regional and getting to play, possibly, Mississippi State in the 2nd round in Little Rock. Talk about a fun matchup.

Jeers to the Tournament committee for putting Texas as the #2 seed in the South regional, meaning this has happened 3 years in a row - in '06 Memphis was a 1 seed and had to play 2 seed UCLA in Oakland, CA for their regional final. In '07 Memphis was a 2 seed and had to play 3 seed Texas A&M in San Antonio in the sweet 16. And now, this year, if Texas and Memphis get to the regional finals for a trip to the final four, they will be playing it in Houston, TX. Sound like a conspiracy to you?

...and finally, Cheers to Georgia for winning the SEC tournament and securing the lowest seeding by a BCS school into the NCAA tournament in history. This team went from 13-16 with not even a shot at the NIT, to a favorable upset pick in the NCAA tournament. Talk about crazy...
