From the Lofty TLBR Observation Deck, vol. 5
4:21 p.m. --
Took my first loss of the day. I had the 14-seed Oral Roberts with the upset over #3 Washington State.
Not surprisingly, I didn't give the Cougars much love... But that's neither here, nor there.
Georgetown (a TLBR Final Four team) is up big. ODU (the TLBR/CAA team of the tournament) and Butler are close, but the Bulldogs are heating up from the perimeter. And the prospective national champion pick, Texas A&M, is also cruising.
* Best Cingular wireless commercial ever...you know, the one with the dropped calls...guy calls a girl whose number he got in a bar the other night and right when he asked an "us" question, it dropped out.
"Hi this is Nikki, leave a message..."
* Trying to keep tabs on the second best college basketball spectacle of this time of year: the coaching carousel. But nothing much out there today.
