THE CITADEL, SC – So we’re down to the Sweet 16!  Lots of chalk still left in the 2016 NCAA Tournament too. No George Masons or Florida Gulf Coasts this year. The ACC has claimed 6 of the 16 teams still standing. Talk about a power conference! Not since 1985’s Final Four field featured 3 teams […]

On his right was a row of blue blazers.  On his left, orange.  Today felt like a blue day, so he pieced it together with his Spongebob yellow tie and matching blue sunglasses.  It promised to be a big day, rumors […]
