7:50 am
date back in 1963, loyola defied the unwritten rule of not playing more than three black players at once versus an all-white mississippi state team. loyola won that game and went on to win the championship. could they be on their way to making history.. again??

( darya )colin kaepernick can still throw the ball.. the question is will any nfl team pick him up. he was spotted working on a private practice field in houston texas yesterday.. and if you're wondering.. there were no nfl teams there watching.. even the texans didn't know about it. he's been outta the game since 2016 when he made waives by kneeling for the anthem with the 49ers.

11th seeded loyola-chicago to the next round of the nc-double-a tournament.. it's march madness: it's march madness!!!! and this is what it's all about! the ramblers made a 3-point shot to beat 6th seeded miami 64-62. as we look at the highlights from last night: a history lesson: same exact date back in 1963, loyola defied the unwritten rule of not playing more than three black players at once versus an all-white mississippi state team. loyola won that game and went on to win the championship. could they be on their way to making history.. again?? that game busted a lot of brackets... but not president obama's! he picked his home town team over miami.. but he got the other big upset wrong: 13th seeded buffalo dominated number 4 arizona.. no need for a buzzer beater: the bulls had 'em start to finish: beating the final four contender by 21 points:

that was by far the biggest upset of the big dance so far.. warriors kevin durant is listed as questionable for tonight's home game against the sacramento kings cuz of soreness in his right ribs. my god.. the warriors could fill a convalecsent home at this rate: steph curry (tweaked right ankle), klay thompson (fractured right thumb), draymond green (sore shoulder) and david west (right arm cyst). forget the private jet, they can just take lifeflight to their next road trip is john gruden a genius or a madman.. we won't know til the raiders start playing.. but this move is sure ruffling fans feathers: they chose to sign a fading green bay packer over their own veteran wide receiver michael crabtree.. who's two years younger and by stats, a whole lot better.. yes crabtree faded in 2017 but like gruden would say on espn: he knows how to take care of

the football: he's not only effective in the red-zone.. he's also reliable as a tenacious and fiery pass- catcher in heavy traffic the move saves the raiders 7.7 million dollars in cap space.. but they gotta turn around and give jordy nelson 15 mill for two years. and here are concerns about how much nelson has left. in 15 games last season he had just 53 catches for 482 yards.. though that was with brett hundley at quarterback.. hopefully he'll do better in oakland with derek carr throwing him the ball. colin kaepernick can still throw the ball.. the question is will any nfl team pick him up. he was spotted working on a private practice field in houston texas yesterday.. and if you're wondering.. there were no nfl teams there watching.. even the texans didn't know about it. he's been outta the game since 2016 when he made waives by kneeling for the anthem with the 49ers. football
