    When my boys were little and played mite hockey, they had a coach whose only direction from the bench was to constantly yell “who wants it?” (which we thought was hysterical). It seems that this year’s college basketball would benefit from that coach’s “game plan”.

    Rough stretch for Kansas but they still are having an excellent season and are a legit national championship contender. All things considered Iíd say Self is probably the best coach in college basketball.

    This is an all-timer...

    An UberEats deliveryman just tried to deliver food to a ref in the middle of the Loyola - Duquesne game. Yup, it is real.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    That's called self-esteem.

    I saw that and have 2 questions: 1) McDonalds - really? 2) How did he get into the stadium/field house without a ticket?

    Regarding 2), the following is the screening process at the main gate of Navy bases, with ships in port with nukes (at least while I was in):

    Military personnel with a base sticker - Stop and show ID, with a visual inspection of the interior of the car.

    Pizza delivery, taxis, and Soft drink trucks- Automatic wave through.

    I don't believe the ref ordered the food. He would be fired today if he did. Given the surcharge some stadiums have for mediocre concessions, I can't blame the fan.

    How the delivery driver got past security even in a midmajor gym to the floor is the real issue. TV usually refuses to show drunk fans on the football field, and they need to do the same for Doordash. It should have been delivered outside the stadium with a photograph.

    According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Abby Schnable, someone at the video board had ordered the food — so the driver was at least in the right place. How the delivery person got into the arena without a ticket is anybody's guess.
    Ref came by an said that it was a first for him. Also the guy who was supposed to get the food is on the video board. He got his MCDs

    Not sure I totally buy the story, though, as you can't get into stadium without a ticket, I doubt an Uber Eats driver is going to go through the trouble of finding a place to park and go into a stadium and then walk onto the floor, and stadiums don't typically allow outside food. I get crushed for bringing 4 oz of water for my 4-year old...Might be a stunt of some sort, but not sure what.

    Smells like a stunt (advertising and/or "look at me") to me.

    After starting the season 14-0 and ascending to #1 in the AP Poll and on KenPom, UConn has lost 6 of 8.

    What is going on in Storrs?

    Do their message boards have threads about how hot Danny Hurley's seat has become?

    During the second half of a relatively lightly attended game, is someone really monitoring the door for tickets? Iím sure you can walk right in pretty easily. Just keep walking and act like you know what you are doing. If someone asks, say you thought you left the headlights in your car on or werenít feeling good and needed fresh air.

    With all due respect to the Hurley family, this pleases me.

    Is this the most wide open season ever? Other than maybe Purdue, I donít see any locks for a #1 seed. And as good as Purdue has been, the Big Ten has no other ranked teams- so Iím not sure how tested the Boilermakers will be come tourney time. Just wish Duke could find some consistency because this looks like a year when a lower seed has a real chanceÖ

    Seems that way. I suppose you could do some sort of statistical analysis on this, either by simply looking at the rankings at KenPom or Trank, or by looking at the variability of game scores. I'm way too lazy to do that, however.

    And despite the parity the four teams that make the Final Four will all be called teams with great years despite the ups and downs in Jan and Feb. Lots of bball to be played and Duke does have the pieces if they put it all together.

    You're not wrong. Your point also works if you swap out Purdue for Houston. I think they're the other super likely 1 seed, and they won't be seriously tested.
