The #1 seed Purdue Boilermakers fell to the #16 seed Fairleigh Dickinson Knights causing more heartbreak for the Purdue fans. Another early exit with a talented team has baffled the pod as Purdue coach Matt Painter can’t seem to get it right.

This year’s tournament has not been friendly to the blue bloods either as Kansas, Duke & Kentucky have all been bounced in the round of 32 making the fellas question as which team can get back on track the quickest.

The Texas Longhorns have been battling hard for interim head coach Rodney Terry and, to everyone’s surprise, the Ivy League’s very own Princeton Tigers are making noise as a #15 seed, beating not only #7 ranked Mizzou but also #2 ranked Arizona in the first round.

The Arkansas Razorbacks head basketball coach Eric Musselman was very happy to make the sweet sixteen, shown by his disregard for upper body clothing when the Razorbacks advanced.


Lastly, in news of the weird, a Texas A&M player has an interesting NIL deal & a very old clam has been discovered.
