    Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Final Four Predictions

    We are now down to the Final Four of March Madness. Before going on, the legendary Roy Williams announced his retirement from coaching college basketball.

Now onto the Final Four as we will see the Baylor Bears battle the Houston Cougars. In the other game, we will see Gonzaga take on the surprising UCLA Bruins to see who advances to the title game.

    The wild ride of March Madness continued into the Sweet 16. My Sweet 16 picks garnered a 5-3 record, which isn’t bad at all seeing how this tournament has gone. Michigan beat Florida State to show why they are a legit contender to cut down the nets in the end. In the game of the weekend, UCLA pulled off the upset over Alabama in OT. My last defeat came when Houston manhandled Syracuse to advance to the Elite 8. Who will advance to the Final Four? Let’s see who leaves the Elite 8 victorious?

    Daddy’s Hangout 2021 NCAA Sweet 16 Predictions

    The first two round the March Madness was as crazy as we have ever seen. We have a number of Cinderella teams as we enter the second weekend of the tournament. Gonzaga and Baylor are still the favorites to meet in the championship game. With all the madness that has taken place in March, could we see someone else? Let’s take a look and see who I think will advance to the Final Four. East Region   #1 Michigan vs. #4 Florida State We have the only matchup that features two teams that were favorites and prevailed in the first two rounds. We also have a game that features two…

    2019 NCAA Championship Game Prediction

    It’s official! The Virginia Cavaliers will meet the Texas Tech Red Raiders for the 2019 NCAA Championship. Virginia’s championship appearance was a controversial one seeing how their Final Four game ended. Two plays at the end of the game had plenty of people talking. The first being the missed double dribble called on Jerome with less than six seconds left. If that call is made, Auburn would probably be playing for the championship. The other one saw Kyle Guy get fouled while shooting a 3-pointer to end the game. Guy went on to hit all three free throws with 0.6 seconds left. Texas Tech used their smothering defense to put…

    Daddy’s Hangout 2019 Final Four Predictions

    We have arrived at the Final Four. Did anyone have Michigan State, Virginia, Auburn and Texas Tech in their Final Four? Of course you didn’t, but in my original bracket I had Michigan State winning the championship. My ESPN bracket had Michigan State and Virginia in the title game with the Spartans winning. Michigan State will battle Texas Tech in one game. In the other game, Virginia will battle the Auburn Tigers. This past weekend, we saw some great basketball. Michigan State blew out LSU and edged Duke to reach this point. Texas Tech pummeled Michigan and beat Gonzaga to advance to their first Final Four. Auburn ran past North…

    March Madness is headed into the second weekend. With the Sweet 16 starting up tomorrow, it got me thinking about some of favorite teams from the past.

North Carolina and Florida State are the teams that I’m always pulling for but five teams that stick out that I’ll consider my favorite teams. 1990 UNLV Runnin Rebels The 1990-91 Runnin Rebels was lead by Larry Johnson and Stacy Augmon that was coached by the Shark.

    Villanova Michigan Meet In National Title Game

    Now that the Final Four is over, we have finally arrived at the title game. Michigan used a late-game run to outlast the Cinderella Loyola Chicago team in the first game. In the second game, Villanova used a barrage of 3s to get out in front of Kansas early. Michigan comes into the title game as the hottest team in the nation with a 14-game winning streak. Mortiz Wagner put the Wolverines on his back and willed them to beating the Ramblers. Michigan was seen as the 5th best team from the Big 10 Conference, but they’re one game away from claiming the national title. On the other hand, Villanova…

    Daddy’s Hangout 2018 Final Four Preview

    All I can say is this has been one of the more memorable March Madness tournaments in recent memory. After a Sweet 16 that continued the madness, we have a Final Four that no one predicted. On one side, you have two teams that many picked to play each other. The Villanova Wildcats will battle the Kansas Jayhawks to see who advances to play in the championship game on Monday. The Wildcats and Jayhawks were top seeds in their regions and have been impressive with so many upsets happening. On the other side, we have the Michigan Wolverines taking on the Cinderella, Loyola-Chicago Ramblers. Michigan took out Florida State and…

    Mark Fox Fired After 9 Seasons at Georgia

    Georgia fired coach Mark Fox on Saturday, sources told ESPN. Intermediaries on behalf of the Bulldogs began reaching out to gauge the interest of potential replacements over the past several days, sources said. Todd Turner and Collegiate Sports Associates are expected to be retained to help with the search. Fox, 49, was hired in 2009 and took the Bulldogs to a pair of NCAA tournaments in nine seasons. Georgia went in 2011 and 2015, but the program failed to go after that. Georgia was 39-29 in 2015-16 and 2016-17, making back-to-back NIT appearances. This season, the Bulldogs are 18-15 and are likely to miss out on the NCAA tournament yet…

    Daddy’s Hangout 2017 NCAA Final Four Preview

    Who had South Carolina making the Final Four in their brackets? Even as a #1 seed, many people didn’t have Gonzaga making the Final Four. For the most part, many people including myself had North Carolina making it. I’ve seen many people who thought Oregon had a shot, but Kansas was the pick for the most part in the Midwest Region. In my first bracket my Final Four picks were Duke, Arizona, Kansas and North Carolina. For my Sweet 16 preview, my Final Four picks were Wisconsin, Arizona, North Carolina and Kansas. With that said, this has been an amazing tournament with so many great moments. We have witnessed some…

    All I can say right now is what a tournament!! This is the very reason they call it March Madness with all these upsets. Now that we’re in the round of 16, one of my Final Four picks has been eliminated in Duke. In one of the many surprises we saw the South Carolina Gamecocks defeat Duke to advance to the Sweet 16. Out of all the teams in the Sweet 16, I picked 8 of them correctly to advance to this point. Speaking of a #7 seed beating a #2 seed, we also had Michigan upset Louisville on Sunday also. The big upset by seeding had to be Wisconsin,…

    Daddy’s Hangout 2017 NCAA Tournament Prediction

    One of the most exciting times of the sporting year is now upon us. That’s right; the NCAA Tournament has finally arrived and let the madness begin. Last year, I had North Carolina playing Oklahoma in the championship game. I was almost right because the Tar Heels battled Villanova, whom I had losing to the Sooners in the Final Four. We all know how that championship game.  turned out as it was one for the ages. This year is sure to be just as exciting as the previous years because we have so many great teams that I believe could cut down the nets in April. Last year, I picked…
