    Hopefully no new news is good news and that he is still doing ok. How scary.

    The Big 10 had such potential in the 2021 NCAA Basketball Tournament, having secured two #1 seeds, two #2 seeds, and a #4 seed, among others. I honestly thought Illinois had its first legitimate shot to win it all since they went to the Championship Game in 2005. Unfortunately Illinois lost in the round of 32 and it just went downhill for the Big 10 from there.

    What went wrong with the Big 10 in this years tournament?! They went in to the tournament on the top of the world and were sent home packing without a single team making it to the Final Four.

    If curling (which for some crazy reason is wildly popular) is an Olympic sport then breakdancing certainly should qualify!

    I was surprised to learn skateboarding wasn't already an Olympic event. Shows what I know.

    So what will the climbing look like? Will climbers climb natural rock formations or will they be competing using a climbing wall?

    My beloved Bears seem to be going the route the Chicago Cubs took for 100 plus years, which seems to always start with the question "how can we never win a championship?"

    After going all-in on Mitch Trubisky the same year they could have picked up PATRICK MAHOMES, we now go all-in on a quarterback who has been in the league for 10 years yet hasn't won a SINGLE playoff game! Goodness gracious.

    I honestly wonder what in the world they are thinking other than completely writing this season off in the hopes of getting some good draft picks in 2022. What else could they possibly be doing because picking a veteran quarterback who has never won a playoff game as the face of the franchise just seems mind-boggling to me.

    A dislocated knee cap might keep 4-time major champion Brooks Koepka from the Masters next month. He had surgery today (3/23) and says he's hopeful to play in the tournament, but went on to say “Whatever my body says, I’m going to listen.”

    How someone can have knee surgery and play in the Masters just over two weeks later sounds a little crazy to me, but I guess he also has some of the best doctors and physical therapists at his disposal so maybe he can pull it off.

    If I were a betting man, I'd bet that he's out this year, but maybe he will surprise us all.

    I'm a-ok with this becoming permanent. I honestly stopped watching the NBA for awhile because some god awful teams were making the playoffs. I started wondering why they were having a regular season at all. Personally, I think the playoffs should be a reward for being a good or great team during the regular season and not because you want to allow as many teams in so there's a chance for a "Cinderella" story.

    It's kind of a no-brainer to not allow tens of thousands of people from basically every country in the world into one small area until we've reached some resemblance of herd immunity. If it means that the Olympics can go on (albeit a year late) then I'm just fine with it.

    You and me both! I still don't "get it," but apparently I'm becoming increasingly isolated with that feeling. To each his own though, so if it's exciting for people to watch other people play video games then who am I to judge?!

    The 2021 Sweet 16 field is set and it looks wayyyyyyyy different than my bracket!

    Three teams - 11 seed Syracuse, 12 seed Oregon State, and 15!!! seed Oral Roberts all defied the odds and punched their tickets to the Sweet 16. Oral Roberts becomes only the second 15 seed team to make it to the Sweet 16.

    I wrote Oral Roberts off in round both of the first rounds and the round of 32, so I'm going to withhold any prediction on them moving forward! I guess I'm a huge Big 10 (Illini) fan, and probably should root for Michigan, but I'm putting all my cheering vibes towards Loyola moving forward.

    How's your bracket looking? Is it as completely busted as mine or did you somehow make some of the best guesses in the world?!

    I actually like how the game is being played outside of the overtime rules. I enjoy watching the NFL over the NCAA, but one thing I do like about college ball is how they do their overtime. It makes it far more exciting, at least in my opinion.
