Watch the ridiculous last few seconds of regulation between Michigan and Wisconsin

In one of the wildest games of the college basketball to date, the Badgers of Wisconsin upset the third ranked Michigan Wolverines at the Kohl Center by a 65-63 count in overtime. How this game got to overtime was absolutely nuts. Michigan's Tim Hardaway, Jr. hit a contested threeball to give the Wolverines a three point lead but then Wisconsin's Ben Brust hit a ridiculous buzzer beater from 40 feet at the horn to force overtime. Brust hit a huge three late in overtime as well which proved to be the difference.

I still don't understand how neither team fouled that late in regulation but alas. Let's go to the videotape.

2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Season Preview

For the second straight season, we had a Camping World Truck Series champion in his early 20's. James Buescher did not lead the points standings until the 19th race of the season but the 22-year old Texan claimed the lead after a sixth place finish in Martinsville and went on to win the title. He will return to defend his title, can he become the first repeat champion in series history? It's time for my 2013 season preview.

Watch the MSG rinkside reporter John Giannone take a puck to the face

Hey, you always have to be careful when down near the ice of a hockey game. Case in point, John Giannone, rinkside reporter for Rangers telecasts on MSG, took a puck to the face after defenceman Marc Staal tried to clear the puck. The best thing is, he continued to report from his area between the benches, even while getting patched up. Good man. Let's go to the videotape.

Watch Illinois upset No. 1 Indiana at the buzzer

Does anybody want to be No. 1 in college basketball this year? Or maybe the question is should anybody want to be No. 1? After all, this is the fifth straight week that the top ranked club after Indiana went to Champaign, and fell to an Illinois team that came into tonight's game having lost eight out of eleven. And not only that, they lost on a buzzer beater lay-up by senior forward Tyler Griffey that was pretty badass. Let's go to the videotape.

Is Kansas in trouble?

It has a rough few days for folks in Lawrence. Four days after a stunning home loss to Oklahoma State, only the eighth of Bill Self's tenure, the fifth-ranked Kansas Jayhawks fell in shocking fashion to a TCU team that is clearly the worst in the conference. At no point did Kansas lead and they only put up 13 points in the first half. Bill Self did not hold back, calling it the worst team to take the court "since Dr. Naismith was there."

So with their first losing streak in seven years, are the Jayhawks in trouble or is this just a blip in the radar?

2013 NFL Mock Draft: 5th Edition

And just like that, the NFL season has concluded with the Baltimore Ravens on top of everyone else after winning Super Bowl XLVII. Now, everyone's attentions turns toward next season and the 2013 NFL draft, as we are now weeks away from the 2013 Scouting Combine. Therefore, let's take a look at my newest mock draft.

Regis Philbin to host a sports show for FOX Sports? UPDATED

I guarantee when you woke up this morning that you did not expect this story, that is, unless you are the great John Ourand of Sports Business Daily. Ourand reported that the legendary Regis Philbin is in talks with FOX Sports to host a show on the new FOX Sports 1 that would look like a sports version of The View. Philbin would serve in the role of Barbara Walters in that he would host pretty much whenever the hell he wants. As we all know, Philbin left Live with Regis and Kelly in November of 2011 and has bided his time since occasionally appearing on Rachael Ray.

If you're still with me, with FOX Sports looking to build programming for their new sports channel, which is expected to debut in August in place of SPEED, what should we make of this idea?

Gus Johnson to call soccer for FOX

Maybe this video was a premonition? Who knows but the big news yesterday was the report by the great Richard Deitsch that FOX Sports was grooming Gus Johnson to be the voice of the World Cup when FOX airs the 2018 World Cup in Russia by having him call a variety of international soccer matches over the next several years, including the FA Cup Final and the Champions League Final in May. Johnson, best known for his extraordinarily excitable commentary from his days covering March Madness among other sports for CBS, has moonlighted doing radio for the San Jose Earthquakes last summer. Here are my thoughts on the move.

Watch Danilo Gallinari make the "shot of the century"

It was a fun one last night in Denver between the Nuggets and the Milwaukee Bucks. You know it's going to be wild when Samuel Dalembert goes for 35 and 12. Denver had the lead late and essentially sealed the game when on a fast break, Danilo Gallinari made an acrobatic lay-in while being fouled to put the team up six. It was an incredible shot, but we think that Altitude Sports' Chris Marlowe got a little too excited with his description. Let's go to the videotape.

Thank you Emeka Okafor for this free throw air ball

We here at B-FLO 360 sure love an airballed free throw, because there is just not many things on the basketball court that are funnier. For that reason, we applaud Wizards center Emeka Okafor for making our day with this piece of hoops magic. Let's take a look.

The worst Super Bowl XLVII commercials

Because the Super Bowl is always the most-watched television event on the year by far, there is a huge focus on the advertisements. Companies spend millions and millions for time during the game to promote their products to a huge audience. This year was no different with the average rate for a 30-second ad was $3.8 million, truly a staggering sum. And as every year, there are some great commercials that go down in history, and some that are truly garbage. In this post, let's take a look on what I considered to be the worst Super Bowl commercials for XLVII.

The best Super Bowl XLVII commercial you never saw (featuring Will Ferrell, again)

Will Ferrell and Old Milwaukee have themselves a beautiful partnership that have produced brilliant spots seen in Davenport, Iowa, my hometown of Terre Haute, IndianaMilwaukee, Wisconsin and Sweden. One year after rocking the Super Bowl with a classic ad that aired only in North Platte, Nebraska, they did it again with one that aired only in Glendive, Montana, Ardmore, Oklahoma and Sherman, Texas and boy, it is bizarre. Let's go to the videotape.

Watch the lights go out at the Superdome during Super Bowl XLVII

I hope there was somebody who took the over on the prop bet of 0.5 power outages during Super Bowl XLVII. Indeed, early on in the third quarter, there was a power surge at the Mercedes Benz Superdome during the game that lost for around 40 minutes. It certainly was a major turning point in the game as the 49ers, who had looked like crap for the first half, was able to turn it around to have a shot at winning late in the fourth. The power went out in the CBS broadcast booth, meaning the network had to rely on sideline reporters Steve Tasker and Solomon Wilcots for updates, and both did tremendous work. On the radio side, Kevin Harlan had to broadcast via phone. It was one of the most bizarre moments in Super Bowl history, for sure.

Take a look at the initial confusion when the lights went out.

Watch Joe Flacco drop an f-bomb while celebrating Baltimore's Super Bowl victory

In case you missed it somehow, the Baltimore Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII by defeating the San Francisco 49ers by a 34-31 in what was a wild one in New Orleans. Joe Flacco was the MVP after a sterling performance, going 22 of 33 for 287 yards and a trio of touchdowns. He also earns major cred for dropping an f-bomb during the postgame celebration. Let's go to the videotape.
