March 14th, 2011
Everyone loves a good nickname, but the 2011 NCAA Tournament is severely lacking in this department. So instead, I present to you funny/lame nicknames for 40 of the top players in the Dance.

NCAA Tournament 2010: Top 10 Excuses To Miss Work

March 16th, 2010


It is that time of the year again, the first two days of the NCAA Tournament where they inconveniently schedule games during business hours on Thursday and Friday.

For some employees catching the games is as simple as taking a paid day off or doing what I used to do, schedule an out of town business trip to allow you to take care of some important business like watching college hoops.

One Sh!tty Moment: An Ode to Busted Brackets and a Weak Tourney

April 8th, 2009
After the championship game, CBS once again followed tradition and showed a montage of tourney clips set to the cheasiest song ever written - "One Shining Moment." The lyrics are below.

For all of you who, like me, had their brackets destroyed well before the big game, I have provided a slightly different set of lyrics. Interspersed within "One Shining Moment" are the words to my song, in parentheses - "One Sh!tty Moment". Hope you enjoy.

For Immediate Release: CollegeHoops.net's Shawn Siegel to Return to Work Tomorrow..

April 2nd, 2009

When the University of Texas sent out a press release on Wednesday noting that Dexter Pittman** was returning to school, I first thought it was an April Fool's joke. When a player that no one expects to go pro, doesn't go pro, is it really news? Of course not. Which is why I present to you tonight's official CollegeHoops.net press release: Shawn Siegel to Return to Work Tomorrow

Rant: It Takes An Idiot to Run an NCAA Tournament Pool

March 17th, 2009
To make the NCAA Tourney fun you need to find someone dumb enough to want to run a pool. For the past 15 years that dummy has been me.

After each year, I swear I'm never going to be that idiot again. The stress of running a pool is simply not worth it. But then March comes and, much like Al Pacino said, "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." (Though I'm not sure if Michael Corleone would find the "stress" of running an NCAA pool "much like" the stress of running - the mafia.)

2009 NCAA Tournament: Top 10 Excuses to Miss Work

March 16th, 2009
It is that time of the year again, the first two days of the NCAA Tournament when they inconveniently schedule games during business hours on Thursday and Friday.

Selection Sunday: Dave's Rant

March 13th, 2009
Typical Selection Sunday Clip

In just days I, Dave Barend, will “fit in”.  No, I haven’t read, “The Idiot’s Guide To Basic Social Skills.” Actually, it’s you who are going to change.  On March 15, aka Selection Sunday, you will become crazy for college hoops.  And then (brace yourselves) you will be just like me.
