NCAA Tournament Seeding, SB Nation's Roger Goodell Interview, And Philly Fans: Around The Perimeter

March Madness: As you prep to watch today's NCAA Tournament games, including Mark Fox's Dawgs taking on those other Dawgs from elsewhere, consider Coug Center's plan for an entirely new postseason college basketball bracket structure, designed to actually reward teams that earn high seeds. A lot of work went into coming up with this idea, and it's clearly too good of an idea to ever happen.

Also, our own Get Buckets foresees the NCAA Tournament's East region, which includes Georgia, Kentucky, and North Carolina, as the toughest and potentially most exciting of the entire bracket. If yesterday's action is any indication -- which, why in the world would it be? These are just the things people say -- you'll want to settle in early.

Get Buckets, whose name I could type all day, also offers a draft profile of Georgia power forward Trey Thompkins at that Get Buckets link linked above, finding him to be somewhere between a Jason Thompson and a Taj Gibson. Get Buckets.

Atlanta Braves: Brian McCann and Luis Salazar have been able to find peace after the sad accident that cost the Braves minor league coach his left eye. Also, GQ crowns Phillies fans the worst in America in the biggest sports upset to happen all week, March Madness included.

NFL: Roger Goodell gave SB Nation bloggers an exclusive interview yesterday, which went up across seven team blogs and at the mothership. Not to toot our horns or anything, but if Goodell and company are looking to connect with fans during a difficult time, they did an excellent job of picking the correct avenue to do so by selecting SB Nation.
