    A successful high school baseball team will more often than not have senior leadership.

    Yes, I know that Indiana did not make the NCAA tournament and that Coach Crean was fired.  
    No, I don’t know who the new coach will be. These are my most frequently asked questions. I don’t really mind but I have no way of doing anything or knowing anything about either one. I do know that I have not been asked so it can be safely assumed that I won’t be the coach.   
    The same thing, different year title applies to the following scenarios: Favored teams win in the tournament.  Favored teams get upset in the tournament.

  • Filling out my brackets

    I don’t know what the attachment is but as soon as the brackets are announced for the NCAA tournament I print one off and start filling it out.  
    I enter contests and just know that this is the year that I get them all correct and win all the big prizes.  Of course, to date that has not happened.  At the risk of everyone copying my picks and having to share the money I will go over what I think will happen.  This is not what I want to happen but what I think could happen.
