March Madness just set in, people! UAB gets Kentucky in the first round, and Bama takes on Marquette. UAB can avenge the Tide for me (fingers crossed that this year's match up will be as exciting as two years ago), while Bama playing in Oakland brings up two very desirable possibilities: 1) A chance for revenge against Memphis (for both Bama and UAB) if both make it to the regional finals, and 2) a chance to talk some serious shit to Nicole. So to get things rolling, looks like Marquette is going to have a second women's team since Bama is going to make the men's their bitches!

The new look of the Golden Eagles after Bama is through with them.

No. 22: The Great Wall of Wisconsin. But she can, and will, kick all our asses.

Revenge against us? That's what we got Saturday against your Blazers (finally the world is right again). We'll see what happens with your Tide, but honestly I'm alot more worried about Arkansas in the 2nd round. We've already beaten the 2, 3 and 10 seeds in this region. The Hogs and the Pitt/Kansas winner are the only ones that really scare me in this region. We'll see.

Bluster and arrogance forces me to pronounce the Memphis Tigers as big fat stupid losers that have no shot against the Crimson Tide should they meet again. Realism makes me worry that Bama could be out after the first round for the second year in a row. Hopefully not since I've already started the smack talk, but whatever.

OH MY GOD, bring it on! I plan on doing some research so the trash talking reaches all new levels. And I'm not working this week, so I have a lot of time to perfect my taunts.

Also, interestingly enough, I just went on the women's bball page to try and make some back talk to Hack about #22 and there is no #22. So either his pic is seriously old or she's an apparition.

I wouldn't shit talk on behalf of Alabama hoops...not even if they were playing the Alabama School for the Blind.

That being said, funk the Golden Eagles...or whatever their nickname is.

They were the Warriors, but that's not PC anymore. One wonders if the Black Warrior River is going to be up for renaming.

And, hey, what's wrong with admitting that a brickhouse can kick ass? Not that she's 36-24-36 or anything.... Actually, she kind of looks like Biff of "Back to the Future" fame.

Remember for about a week, the sports teams were going to simply be the Marquette Golden? Then people flipped out and they added "Eagles" back to it. Yeah, you know it's bad when you want to change your nickname because when people hear "Golden Eagles" they think of Southern Mississippi.

They didn't want to change the nickname because of SoMiss. The students, alumni and pretty much everyone wants them to be the Warriors again. So instead of that, which they keep deeming too derogatory (you know, even though there are a bazillion other Indian nicknames still about) they decided to hold a vote to give a new nickname that everyone would like. Basically one to please the administration but that the students would feel proprietary of because they have helped choose it. The whole thing failed miserably and even the local Native Americans have said they should be the Warriors again.

HAHA Nicole will win. Just to let you know. You might want to rethink trying to talk smack with her. I also offered to pay to see the event.
