Sports Watcher for the Weekend of 3/31-4/1

All times PDT. Saturday12-2:30 PM: NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, Kroger 250 (FOX). The Truck Series graduates from Speed Channel… for a couple of races per year. 3-5 PM: College Basketball, Georgetown v. Ohio State (CBS). At this point, the best thing for my bracket is for Ohio State to go on to win the national […]

Past posts have offered other ideas as well as first introduced […]

Gonzaga: The Mid-Major Duke?
