We need more of these. I loved what Maryland did, and am also a fan of this Zips production.

Good music, good highlights, strong ’90 Minute’ theme … let’s start the tourney already.

Not every team knows their fate heading into the announcement of the NCAA Tournament Bracket. One team that had the cameras rolling during the selection show was the University of Washington. And while the celebration was understandably muted, this marks the first time since 2007 that they made the tournament — not a bad accomplishment by head coach Jamie Clark.

The Winthrop Eagles thrived in their role as underdogs in the Big South Conference title game, scoring two goals in the final three minutes to stun Coastal Carolina.

Watch the buildup to their victory, including coach Rich Pospipanko motivating his team by telling them:

“The next seven days after you win is the greatest experience of your college career. So if you want to feel that you have to go out and get it done today.”

SOLD. Put me in coach!

Winthrop knocked off the top three seeds in the tourney on their way to a Cinderella triumph.

You know the drill: if you’re hot, then you’re on this list. If you’re not … you’re still on this list. We’re taking the weekly temperature of soccer and other random stuff. Here we go:  

 

HOT

1. NCAA Tournament. The men’s bracket has been announced while the ladies have already completed a first round that featured one major upset. The College Cup is half full, baby.  

 

2. Dancing Lady. Dancing is the freedom of expression and you can feel free to express your own feelings after watching Dancing Lady do what only she can.  

 

3. Nicole Westbrook. If you’re not dancing after listening to Nicole Westbrook remind us that “It’s Thanksgiving” (even though it isn’t) I don’t know what to tell you. And if you are dancing I know exactly what to tell you: ‘STOP! LIKE, NOW!’  

 

NOT

1. Goalkeeper Guillermo Sara. He’ll be fine once someone explains to him that he’s allowed to use his hands.

 

2. Selena Gomez. As Long As You Love Me, huh Justin? Biebs dropped his main squeeze. Gomez will be fine once someone explains to her that she’s 20 frickin’ years old, and that there are other guys out there who can, like, legally drive and stuff.  

 

3. Kim Kardashian’s balance. Could’ve been worse; she could’ve actually fallen and then watched as her boyfriend crashed the stage and reminded us that Jay-Z’s wife has the “best video of all-time.”

The above Bentley used to be white, but now it’s army fatigue. Somehow, that sentence becomes more explainable once you learn that the Bentley’s driver is Mario Balotelli.

Balotelli is a man who has no explanation. He does things and we accept them. Making his £160,000 ride camouflage? Of course he did.

Moving on …

So the first-round story of the women’s NCAA Tournament is undoubtedly Oakland who shocked a fourth-seeded Ohio State with a victory in a shootout. (For the record, my upset prediction of Washington State beating Portland came sooooo close).

Nicole DeLuca drained this final PK to clinch the upset and send the Golden Grizzlies to the second round where they’ll face Texas A&M. Well done, ladies.

Soccer has a serious problem with fan control. I mean, if you can’t stop a one-legged fan from hopping onto the field you probably don’t have a chance of protecting your players.

This happened during the first half of the Corinthians-Coritiba match Saturday in Brazil and it’s believed to be the first one-legged streaker in the history of streaking.

And we’re underway. The Florida Gators beat Florida Gulf Coast in the opening match of the Women’s NCAA Tournament.

If you’re not yet excited about this tourney I’ve got some ladies I’d like to introduce to you after the jump.

Last fall, Nick DeLeon was gearing up for the NCAA Tournament with Louisville.

Just a year later, the rookie midfielder delivered for his pro club, D.C. United, scoring the game-winning goal in a 1-0 victory to advance to the MLS Eastern Conference Final with a 2-1 aggregate win over the New York Red Bulls.

It was another bizarre encounter like last Saturday’s game, featuring two red cards, and a made penalty that didn’t count — don’t believe me? Just watch the highlights.

Oh, yeah, and don’t forget to watch Bill Hamid LOSE HIS MIND after the jump.
