    Did you fill out a March Madness bracket this year? In many states, if you put money in a pool, that's illegal! The NCAA website warns, "Fans should enjoy ... filling out a bracket just for the fun of it, not ... the amount of money they could possibly win." Give me a break. Americans bet more money on March Madness this year than on the Super Bowl. Politicians can't quite make up their minds about gambling: They approve certain casinos and promote state lotteries but crack down on sports bets and some charity poker games. It seems that government...

    Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear is betting bottles of big name bourbon on the Final Four game when the University of Kentucky takes on the Wisconsin Badgers on Saturday in Dallas. Beshear and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker made a friendly wager Tuesday on the game, betting items from the signature industries of each state. The Kentucky bourbon basket wagered by Beshear will include some of the state’s most well-known Bourbon brands such as Woodford Reserve, Maker’s Mark, Four Roses, Elijah Craig and others as well as glasses and apparel. If Kentucky wins, Beshear will receive a gift of some of Wisconsin’s...

    March 27, 2014 New Bevin ad clads McConnell in Duke gear By Alexandra Jaffe Sen. Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) primary challenger, businessman Matt Bevin, is working to make sure McConnell is forever linked with the wrong team in the state’s bitter basketball rivalry with Duke University. Bevin is debuting a new ad during Friday’s Kentucky versus Louisville basketball game that features a cutout of the Senate minority leader bedecked in a blue Duke jersey. It’s a reference to a McConnell campaign video launched earlier this week that mistakenly featured a shot of Duke’s 2010 championship team celebrating their win — a...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. — Sen. Mitch McConnell's latest campaign video hit all the necessary Kentucky high points: horse racing, bluegrass — and Duke basketball? The campaign was scrambling this morning to remove an online video that features a split-second clip of Duke basketball players celebrating their 2010 national championship. The mistake comes as the basketball-crazy state of Kentucky prepares for the biggest game of the year. Kentucky and Louisville face off in the Sweet Sixteen on Friday night.

    For those of you who still have perfect brackets after the first full day of the NCAA tournament, congratulations. For those who have already had to tear their brackets up, you might not like this video. The folks at ESPN decided to make an entire bracket based off a rat maze, picking the winners based on which rat finished the race first. The final bracket may feature some wild upsets, but through the first day of the round of 64, the rat bracket is 15-1—correctly picking every game on Thursday except for Pittsburgh taking down Colorado. With that 15-1 record,...

    Russia signaled concern on Wednesday at Estonia's treatment of its large ethnic Russian minority, comparing language policy in the Baltic state with what it said was a call in Ukraine to prevent the use of Russian. Russia has defended its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea peninsula by arguing it has the right to protect Russian-speakers outside its borders, so the reference to linguistic tensions in another former Soviet republic comes at a highly sensitive moment.

Would it be OK to make him part of the telecast? They should have asked: Do you mind if your 4-year-old grandson steals the show, even as the Hawks win the A-10 title for the first time since 1997? If you haven't seen Philip Martelli in action, you don't go online much, since the video went fairly viral. You missed the clip Monday morning on the Today Show and Good...

Having recently used the power of the executive order to further his gun agenda, the President believes it can be used for other major policy issues as well. The first item on the agenda? Getting his pick for the NCAA men’s basketball championship back in the tournament. The President explained, “Getting the Indiana Hoosiers back in the tournament is not just a victory for any one party – it’s a victory for the American people.” Recent...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama had the kind of Saturday that many men dream of having, playing golf and attending a college basketball playoff game. Midday found him at Joint Base Andrews, the Air Force base on the outskirts of Washington where Air Force One is kept. He teed off at one of the base courses with friends Marty Nesbitt, Marvin Nicholson and Michael Brush. After a couple of hours, enough to probably play nine holes, Obama had his motorcade whisk him to the Verizon Center sports arena, where Syracuse defeated Marquette to advance to the semifinals of the...

    Louisville is the top seed in the NCAA tournament after a topsy-turvy season in college basketball, capped by another round of upsets over the weekend. That other team from the Bluegrass State won't even get a chance to defend its national title. While the Big East champion Cardinals surged to the top of the 68-team bracket released Sunday, joined by fellow No. 1 seeds Kansas, Indiana and Gonzaga, the school that won it all a year ago was left out of the field. Kentucky was hoping the committee would overlook a dismal performance in the Southeastern Conference tournament, but the...

    There apparently is no crisis too great to deter Barack “Hoops” Obama from his appointed rounds. What would it take to keep him from basketball? A terror attack on U.S. soil? I’m thinking even that might not do it. Following the rampage by an American soldier Sunday, Obama showed far more outrage than he did after the Fort Hood massacre. Still, even as events unfold today in Afghanistan, all systems are go for some March Madness. Taliban militants opened fire today on an Afghan government delegation visiting one of the two villages in southern Afghanistan where a US soldier is...

I blame March Madness. The annual NCAA basketball tournament opened last weekend, and let's face it, some of us go a little crazy this time of year. Opening weekend alone features 48 games. Forty-eight. I did the math, and that many 40-minute games works out to 1,920 minutes -- a whopping 32 hours -- of basketball. And...

    Barrack's March Madness bracket picks are a telling self-revelation. An amateur psychologist would have a field day. The doctor is in, and here is the diagnosis. 1) The man has no imagination. No vision. Zilch. Nada! He picks all predictable number one seeds to be in the Final Four. How original is that? For the first time in tournament history there are not even any number 2 seeds much less a number 1. His 2009 Final Four picks were all number ones too. The man is incredibly shallow. 2) He is bereft of the concept of personal struggle of the...

    President Obama's probably hoping he put some money on his March Madness picks, if he hasn't already. After a weekend's worth of basketball, the president's picks are among the most prescient, after two rounds of the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Obama's picks rank at the 99th percentile on ESPN.com, and he leads a pool including his bracket and the picks of other members of Congress whose brackets were collected by The Hill. Following Sunday night's games, Obama's bracket had earned the most points, putting him, respectively, ahead of Sens.

    DISPARITY IN GRADUATION RATES BETWEEN WHITE AND BLACK PLAYERS Ten of the 68 teams that entered this year’s NCAA Tournament are not on track to graduate at least half of their players. A proposal by the Knight Commission ten years ago recommended that teams who do not graduate at least 50% of their players should not be eligible for post-season play. More than 90 percent of intercollegiate athletic teams meet or exceed this minimal academic standard, with one glaring exception: men’s basketball. Worse, there is a growing disparity between white and black players. At Kansas State in recent years, 100...

    The NCAA plans to expand the men's basketball tournament from 65 to 68 teams beginning next year and announced a new, $10.8 billion broadcasting deal with CBS and Turner Broadcasting on Thursday that will allow every game to be shown live for the first time. The three-team expansion is much more modest than 80- and 96-team proposals the NCAA outlined just a few weeks ago at the Final Four. The move coincides with the new, 14-year broadcasting arrangement that interim NCAA president Jim Isch said will provide an average of $740 million to its conferences and schools each year. The...
