I was surprised to see that Vanderbilt University is expected to hire Valparaiso Coach Bryce Drew as its new basketball coach.  Drew, of course, is remembered for his playing career at Valpo where he played for his dad.  He would replace Kevin Stallings, a player for Purdue University, who now becomes the Pittsburgh basketball...

Yesterday I proposed a system for determining the 64 teams for March Madness.  I have a couple of stipulations that would go with this system.
