The Dagger: Report: NCAA tournament expansion is a 'done deal'
Fox Sports: NCAA tournament expansion far from done
I just cannot say enough about how bad an idea a 96-team NCAA tournament is. If they do pursue it, I'll probably throw together a "What If they'd done this in the past?" series, but ... I certainly won't enjoy it much. We complain about 6-6 football teams being rewarded for mediocrity ... well just wait until a 15-17 Big East team makes the tournament ... which will almost certainly happen unless they put in a "nobody under .500" rule ... in which case a 17-15 ACC team would take their place.
Signing Day Tomorrow!!
The Trib: New crop of DBs for Tigers carries 'orgasmic'?! label
"If the Tigers signed a taller defensive back who plays like [E.J.] Gaines, they’ve signed a pro prospect," in-state recruiting analyst Danny Heitert said. "Over the past two seasons Gaines has put together an orgasmic highlight package."
"Everyone was afraid to throw at him," Fort Osage Coach Ryan Schartz told The Examiner newspaper. "If they did, he made them pay."
Here’s proof: In a Class 5 sectional victory last season, Park Hill’s quarterback targeted the receiver Gaines was covering three times. Gaines intercepted two of those passes and knocked down another.
For the season, Gaines made 89 tackles and picked off five passes.
