Did I mention more pages of coverage of the NFL draft than there are pages in the entire C-J sports section? True.
But nestled at the bottom of one of the pages is the news on expansion of the NCAA mens basketball tourney. And, frankly, it could be much worse.
68 teams. While no details appeared in the article, one assumes there will be four play in games. Perhaps in Dayton on Tuesday for tradition’s sake. My hope is that no automatic qualifiers play in these games, only Joe Lunardi’s last 8 in.

Did you hear?
Tim Tebow was taken in the first round. Jimmy Clausen wasn’t.
All together now . . . . . . . Awwwwwwwwww!!!!!!

Other sports news of note where I am: Jason Bohn is leading the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. The Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints picked Florida State’s Patrick Robinson in the first round of the draft. Drew Brees is going to be on the cover of Madden 11. Avery Johnson and Jeff Van Gundy are the first names to pop up in the New Orleans Hornets coaching search.
While grabbing coffee this morning, guys were talking about all that, a couple of snippets about the NBA playoffs, a guy in a Cubs hat and a guy in a BoSox hat were chatting about their teams, but I heard nary a mention of these two words . . . Marquis Teague.
