2015 NCAA Tournament: Saturday 3rd Round Predictions

After a truly wild Thursday, Friday was a bit of a let-down with virtually all chalk save for the very last game with Dayton upsetting Providence in Columbus. But now the Thursday winners are back in action today in the 3rd Round of the 2015 NCAA Tournament. Who will survive and advance to the Sweet Sixteen? Here are my Saturday predictions.

2015 NCAA Tournament: Thursday 2nd Round Predictions

Even as the First Four began last night and will continue tonight from Dayton, the NCAA Tournament really gets underway on Thursday afternoon with the beginning of the "2nd" Round. The top two number one seeds will be in action, including the undefeated Kentucky Wildcats, as well as a number of scintillating matchups throughout the day. Here are my predictions for the Thursday action.

Watch NCAA Tournament announcers hilariously imitate each other

There are certainly some interesting and notable personalities on the crop of announcers calling the 2015 NCAA Tournament, and some of them are easily impersonated. This tremendous video showcases it as such with some of the various personalities impersonating the likes of Verne Lundquist, Bill Raftery (probably the best of the lot), Jim Nantz, Charles Barkley and others. Let's go to the videotape.

2015 First Four Predictions

The 2015 NCAA Tournament kicks off tonight with the First Four in Dayton. Of course, we all know that it is ridiculous that this is considered the "first round" when only eight teams are involved but that change is coming next year, fortunately. You've got a doubleheader tonight, a doubleheader tomorrow before the real action commences on Thursday afternoon.

Here are my predictions for the First Four.

2015 CBI Predictions

Well if you can't make the NIT, there is always the College Basketball Invitational. It is the eighth edition of this tournament and it is always a fun one especially considering the usual mix of some lower-tier power conference teams and some mid-major clubs. Here are my predictions.

2015 NIT Predictions

For those who do not make the NCAA Tournament, there is always the National Invitation Tournament. The NIT is not what it once was but it can be a decent consolation for those programs that may have felt they were snubbed, or those regular season conference champions that fell in their conference tournaments. Here are my predictions.

2015 MLB on Fox Schedule

This is the 20th season of Major League Baseball coverage on Fox Sports and like last season's slate, it will be a shorter schedule than we have seen in the past. It will begin Memorial Day weekend with primetime games until the All-Star Game, then it will return in mid-September for the stretch run to the postseason. But Fox Sports 1 will be having coverage all season long, filling in the Fox blanks.

Here is the schedule, to be filled in with announcers all season long, for 2015.

2015 MLB on FS1 Schedule

Major League Baseball action returns to Fox Sports 1 this season with weekly coverage of the National Pastime all season long. Save for a game a couple of games on Tuesdays, and a game apiece on Thursday and Friday, the vast majority of FS1's coverage will be on Saturdays, effectively complementing the coverage on Fox. Here's the 2015 schedule.
