Brando's "This ain't Carmen San Diego!" line in the San Diego/UCONN game made blood vessels in my head spontaneously explode. Horrible.

Don't laugh too hard. Look at this snipet from the Big East's website

When the BIG EAST membership grew to 16 teams in 2005-06, the all-league teams were expanded. Eleven players are named to the All-BIG EAST First Team with one of those players earning BIG EAST Player of the Year honors. The conference will announce the Player of the Year and its other individual awards at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City, March 11, at 6 p.m. EST.

Ha I knew about the Big Ten, but Wenzel was talking about the Big East. Pretty sure they go with the standard five.

Raff is the best. I want that guy to follow me around and do color for my life. He is the anti-Packer, and I would love to see a steel cage death match between the two. Gus Johnson would have to do play-by-play.

And as if it weren't bad enough that Bryant Gumble did everything he could to ruin NFL Network football games, now we have to deal with his idiot twin dumbing us down in college hoops.
