Mercer_vs_Duke_1395428060208_3555456_ver1_0_640_480In this episode of the “Red Light Sports Ramble”; presented by the Red Light Sports Network, Evan and Troy talk about all of the Bracket Busters that have happened in round 2.  Before the bracket buster news, Evan and Troy talked about the Cincinnati Bengals signing former Green Bay Packer offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse.  This loss in Free Agency was actually cheered by the boys; as Newhouse did not perform well for the Green Bay Packers last year.  They also touched on Buzz Williams leaving Marquette to take the Head Coaching job at Virginia Tech.  They thought it was a surprising move.

The major sports news; overshadowing NFL Free Agency for a few days, is the NCAA Basketball Tournament.  Every year this event is a major spectacle.  The reason being, every year you have mid-major programs that become bracket busters.  The lower seeds defeating higher seeds and keeping their slim hopes of being crowned National Champions alive.  Friday was no different, the biggest upset of the day was #14 Mercer defeating #3 Duke.  The high profiled Duke program left the court dejected while Mercer celebrated the biggest victory in school history.  #14 Mercer will now take on #11 Tennessee on Sunday.  Tennessee had to play its way into the NCAA Tournament and then defeated #6 Massachusetts.  This will guarantee a double-digit seeded team will advance to the Sweet Sixteen again.  After the show was finished, another #12 SF Austin defeated #5 VCU.  This makes three of four #12 seeds who have won their opening round game.
