"I love basketball. I honestly feel if you are not sweating and it is not blood, sweat and tears, it is not a sport. No disrespect to anyone who's involved and they think it is a sport, but to me it's just an activity if you don't have blood, sweat and tears, then I think it is just an activity.
"This year I really thought it was going to be Indiana. One of my teams is still in it too, but unfortunately for me, I did not have them advancing to the Finals. I will watch the game and am probably going to watch the first half before I decide to make a bet. I have watched both teams [Lousiville and Michigan] and see how they play."
"No one had Wichita State and I guess that is why they are called the ‘Shockers.' Obviously that program is doing something right.
"I was telling Charles Barkley before my interview, during the Big East tournament, when Syracuse took the lead over Louisville, they started to play comfortably and Louisville came back and won the game. Same thing happened Saturday against Wichita State, but I think if Michigan takes the lead on Louisville, it is going to be harder for them to come back. Both teams are stacked with talent.
"These guys just poured their hearts out for the love of the game. I just saw that situation at Rutgers where the coach was throwing balls and choking those players and those players didn't go over the edge. They knew they couldn't because they weren't in the position to pull their family out of a rough situation so they were in a tough spot. In that case you have to take the bumps and bruises that comes with those situations. But I don't think it was right what was going on and treating those young college kids playing basketball."
