For Annette Lawless, it is about being around the camera

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — People who watched “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” last weekend at the Wellington Regent may have recognized Annette Lawless, a 2003 Wellington High School graduate, on the screen.Or maybe not.Lawless played a shield agent in the movie – you know, the Marvel Comic agency that helps stamp out bad guys.Annette LawlessIt wasn’t a part that got a lot of play. Lawless isn’t quite sure her part was in the movie.“I don’t always see the movies I’m in,” Lawless laughed.But for Lawless, the daughter of Charles and Di Lawless of Wellington, she’s a busy woman these days. She doesn’t necessarily want to watch the film. She wants to be in the film.Lawless loves the camera -whether being in front of it or behind it. And she has managed a career as being both an actress and a journalist — not to mention being a web designer and podcast host.Sumner County residents know her best as the weekend anchor and reporter for KAKE-TV Channel 10 in Wichita, a job she secured in 2013. Lawless also works for Fox 8 News in Cleveland, Ohio.Her broadcasting career has been a fruitful one thus far. Lawless recently won a Edward R. Murrow award – the most coveting award in TV broadcasting — for a story she did about a special needs girls becoming a homecoming queen. Her work has also produced her an Emmy, and dozens awards in producing, reporting and photography from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters among other associations.While broadcasting has defined her success, acting is her passion.Fortuitously, her journalism work landed her in Cleveland which has significant movie studio activity. Lawless switches back and forth between Wichita and Cleveland TV news stations, but while in Cleveland, she tries to satisfy her acting obsession on her days off.“I think I’ve been in at least 20 films — including a couple of Avenger movies,” Lawless said. “I was most recently in the movie ‘Draft Day.’ I played a secretary in the background in a scene where all the major actors were there.“It was a big scene, I guess. Someone set something on fire in the office.”She hasn’t seen ‘Draft Day’ either or could tell you the details of the movie. Again, she isn’t sure if she made the movie or not.“I get paid the same regardless,” Lawless laughed.Lawless is a fill-in actress. She said she will be called in for a scene as an extra or fill in when a major star can’t be present for a scene. If she looks like the actress, she will stand-in for her so the scene can get shot. The pay is good but the days are long, she says. She might be working eight hours on a scene that is less than a minute on screen or get edited out completely.“It’s like TV news,” Lawless said. “You really think the scene your in will be a more crucial part of the movie, but sometimes it is not.”Lawless doesn’t care, though. She loves the limelight something she developed while being a drama student at WHS. During her high school career she nabbed more than 75 awards in speech, debate and acting.That led her to pursue a degree in broadcasting, print journalism and public relations at Kansas State. Upon graduating from K-State in 2008, Lawless was hired on to do a few ESPN spots for the major sports network concerning Kansas stories. That led her to getting hired on in local TV news. Today she not only acts, but has a couple of podcast show, and has even done some stunt work (see her IMDB.com biography here ).“I love storytelling — and acting and reporting fits my personality,” Lawless said. “I get to meet interesting people and talk all day long.”While she has bits and pieces in major films, she is making a name for herself on the short film circuit. Recently she starred in a short film called “Check Please” which she starred with Jared Word, who played a role on the TV Show “Homeland.” See information of the short film here: “I’m excited because the film has been picked up by film festivals across the country,” Lawless said.But despite her aspirations in acting, she doesn’t think she will leave journalism anytime soon. After all it’s about the story. The following video was an example of where the two careers of reporting and acting collided. This video is about Charlie Sheen, who had just been kicked off the TV Show “Two-and-a-Half Men” and was booed off stage for a comedy act in Detroit a few years ago. Lawless had the duty of doing the interview for Channel 8 when he arrived in Cleveland.“The Charlie Sheen story is something I’ll never forget,” Lawless said. “I was surprised he had a gold tooth. I guess Hollywood has a way of masking imperfections. Thank goodness. I’m sure I’d need quite a few!” Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

With Chad Morris firing, it’s on Arkansas to answer Gus Malzahn question once and for all

first_imgThat’s why LSU’s Ed Orgeron works at LSU. He’s one of them. That’s why Dan Mullen left Mississippi State for Florida. He’s at home Gainesville. Now, you can make the argument Malzahn leaving for Arkansas would be a demotion — and it is, knowing Auburn is 85-43 and Arkansas is 58-65 since 2010.But it’s also home, and Malzahn would be given time to rebuild Arkansas without having to constantly answer questions about whether he wants to leave for Auburn and deal with Nick Saban, who has shown no intention of retiring any time soon. Perhaps, by the time he does, Malzahn would have Arkansas in position to compete again.It ultimately comes down to where Malzahn wants to be. “I’m the head coach at Auburn,” Malzahn responded. “I want to be the head coach at Auburn.”MORE: Chad Morris fired at ArkansasThat curious exchange will be repeated this week with news that Arkansas fired Chad Morris on Sunday. After all, Malzahn is still at Auburn, where he has compiled a 15-8 record, including a 7-7 record in Southeastern Conference play, since that SEC championship game. The Tigers host Georgia and Alabama this month, and what has been a thermal seat the last two seasons will probably warm up if Auburn doesn’t win one of those games.The Tigers might finish 8-4 with an 0-4 record against top-10 teams this season, and that includes a last-minute comeback to beat No. 11 Oregon in the opener. The inevitable second-tier bowl matchup against a Big Ten school will follow — SN projects the Tigers to meet Michigan in the Outback Bowl — and we will do the same-old job evaluation we always do when Malzahn sits in the postgame news conference. Only now, he won’t have the SEC championship backdrop behind him when the inevitable Arkansas question comes.Arkansas athletic director Hunter Yurachek would be foolish not to ask Malzahn, with checkbook in hand, to coach the Razorbacks. Morris compiled a 4-18 record the last two seasons, including a 0-14 record in conference play. Malzahn’s .500 record in the SEC looks pretty damn good compared to that.This isn’t an out-of-nowhere coaching consideration, either. ESPN’s Paul Finebaum just last week was asked whether Arkansas would still want Malzahn. To that, Finebaum said, “I can’t imagine they wouldn’t want him.”MORE: ‘Fire Chad Morris’ trending after Arkansas loss to WKUThe Arkansas-Malzahn connection is straight out of the romantic comedy script — we’ve been waiting the whole time for these two to get together. You know the story by now: He played receiver at Arkansas in 1984-85, was a high school coach in the state, was offensive coordinator for the Razorbacks in 2006 and had a 9-3 record in one season at Arkansas State.Malzahn is the best hire for Arkansas. It would be better than a Group of 5 hire such as Memphis’ Mike Norvell or Arkansas State’s Blake Anderson. Morris seemed like a good idea at the time, given how he turned around SMU. But there’s no comparison to a coach who has experience — and success — leading a team in the SEC West. At the very least, we’ve seen Malzahn win a SEC championship and play for another one.Malzahn also has proven he can beat the top teams in the SEC. He’s 4-9 against Alabama and LSU and has more wins over Alabama than any other SEC team. Arkansas is 2-11 against those teams in the same seven-year stretch and has lost 13 in a row to the Crimson Tide. For what it’s worth, Malzahn is 6-1 against Arkansas.It fits. Everybody knows it fits. You know what the SEC’s mantra is, and that applies here, too: It just means more. Gus Malzahn took the question minutes after No. 6 Georgia beat No. 4 Auburn 28-7 in the 2017 SEC championship game. That loss had barely registered when Malzhan had to justify how happy he was as the coach at Auburn.Then a reporter fired the next question: “Gus, does that mean Arkansas should not bother asking you about their job?”last_img read more

Fantasy Injury Updates: Zach Ertz, Evan Engram, Gerald Everett, among TE Week 13 active/inactive worries

first_imgIs David Njoku playing Week 13?Despite practicing the past two weeks, Njoku (wrist) still hasn’t been activated from the IR, and Browns coach Freddie Kitchens won’t commit to him playing Sunday against the Steelers. MORE WEEK 13: Start/sit | Sleepers | BustsA matchup against the Steelers is a favorable one, so Njoku would be on the TE1 bubble if he’s active. If he’s out, fantasy owners can’t trust Demetrius Harris, as he simply hasn’t been involved enough in the passing game. WEEK 13 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST  | KickerIs Zach Ertz playing Week 13?UPDATE: Ertz got in a limited practice on Friday and there is “optimism” he will play on Sunday.Ertz (hamstring) didn’t practice on Wednesday and was listed as a “DNP” on Thursday’s estimated report. He reportedly played through the injured hamstring last week. Dallas Goedert is already on the field virtually every play, but if Ertz missed Sunday’s game against Miami, Goedert would get a huge bump in value and be a must-start TE. Ertz’s absence would knock down Carson Wentz’s upside, though, putting him squarely on the QB1 bubble. WEEK 13 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver |  Tight endEvan Engram injury updateUPDATE: Engram has officially been ruled “out” for Week 13.Engram (foot) has missed the past two games, and he’s also missed the past two practices. At this point, he seems like a longshot to suit up against the Packers. With Rhett Ellison (concussion) also banged up, Kaden Smith would get his second straight start. He was in on almost every snap last week and caught his first career touchdown. With the Packers ranking in as one of the worst teams at defending tight ends, Smith has some deep-league sleeper appeal.WEEK 13 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPGerald Everett injury newsEverett (knee) hasn’t practiced all week, and given his lack of snaps the past few games, it’s clear his injury has been bothering him for some time. Fantasy owners shouldn’t have confidence in him suiting up this Sunday in Arizona. The Cardinals are by far the worst team at defending TEs, so this opens the door for Tyler Higbee to be a major sleeper this week. Pick him up now if he’s available in your league. We’ll know more about Everett’s availability after Friday’s practice. MORE WEEK 13 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup Builder Fantasy owners were once again without Austin Hooper this week, and they might be without more stud TEs, including Zach Ertz and Evan Engram. Gerald Everett and David Njoku aren’t sure things either, so you might see some mad dashes to the waiver wire in search of tight end sleepers come Sunday morning. Get the latest injury updates on these players so you can beat the rush and prep your Week 13 start ’em, sit ’em decisions a little earlier. For updates on injured WRs, such as Adam Thielen, Odell Beckham Jr., Golden Tate, click here; for the latest on ailing RBs James Conner, Damien Williams, Jordan Howard, and more, go here. Follow us for more news and updates on Twitter @SN_Fantasy.last_img read more

These three conference championship fixes create a perfect College Football Playoff model

first_imgSix is not enough and 16 is too many. Most models have the right idea with eight teams despite the variation. Include all five conferences, the Group of 5 and two at-large bids to give fans the best of the Bowl Championship Series and College Football Playoff — which to be clear has been a huge success to this point. We’ll spend more time arguing about No. 8 and No. 9, but that’s OK. At least a few two-loss teams might sneak in.  The solutions come easy when you recognize the problems.  It’s time to make the conference championship and Playoff fit again. There are far more upsets than blowouts. There are one-sided stakes outside of the SEC, and we still have five Power 5 conferences trying to jam into four spots. MORE: A complete guide to all 10 conference championship gamesThat leads to the usual talking points. We say conference championships don’t matter. We experiment with our own personalized six-, eight-, 12- and 16-team Playoff models, and everybody thinks they have the best plan. We fight for the preservation of the regular season.  The regular season will always matter in college football.The conference championships? They will continue to be a farce if three issues aren’t resolved.Problem: Lack of drama There have been 22 Power 5 conference championship games since the College Football Playoff era, and the statistics show a lack of real drama.  The higher-ranked team is 18-4 in those games.  The average margin of victory is 19.2 points per game, and 12 of those 22 games were decided by 14 points or more.  These games lack spice. Clemson is a 24.5-point favorite against Virginia in this week’s ACC championship game. Ohio State is an 18-point favorite in the Big Ten championship game against Wisconsin.  Possible solution: Eliminate divisionsThe Big 12 got this right when it added a conference championship game. Oklahoma used it to get into the Playoff each of the last two seasons, and the Sooners might vault in again with the help of a battle of one-loss teams against Baylor this weekend.  That said, this isn’t a perfect solution. Virginia really is the second-best team in the ACC. Ohio State already beat Wisconsin and Penn State.  That speaks to another problem.  MORE: 6 scenarios for final CFP rankings, from chalk to chaosProblem: One-sided stakes outside SEC  The conference championships have produced few games where you could say with 100 percent certainty that the winner of that game was in the Playoff.  In fact, there have been just three:  YEARGAME2015No. 5 Michigan State 16, No. 4 Iowa 132017No. 6 Georgia 28, No 2 Auburn 72018No. 1 Alabama 35, No. 4 Georgia 28The only other game that was close was No. 1 Clemson vs. No. 7 Miami in the 2017 ACC championship, and the Hurricanes were not a guarantee to get in with a victory.  The fact that the SEC produced two of those three games and has the biggest game of the weekend with No. 1 LSU and No. 4 Georgia is another hold-up for the eight-team playoff. The SEC has no incentive to go to eight knowing it is almost guaranteed one playoff team every year, and the Bulldogs and Tigers likely both will get in if Georgia pulls the upset Saturday.  Possible solution: Protect one-loss championsJust think about those three games listed above. They were the best conference championship games possible. Michigan State’s L.J. Scott’s TD run and Alabama’s Jalen Hurts’ comeback were defining moments that could make the argument for the conference championship game.  They work against it. Those games felt like true playoff quarterfinals. The other one that did — a matchup between No. 7 Penn State and No. 6 Wisconsin in the 2016 Big Ten championship game — produced a 38-31 thriller the Nittany Lions won. Penn State watched one-loss Ohio State go to the Playoff instead.  MORE: Week 15 bowl projectionsProblem: Five champions, four spots After all the arguing, the CFP still is trying to please five Power 5 conferences and the Group of 5 with four playoff spots. UCF proved that a Group of 5 team will never get into the four-team Playoff.  This weekend could expose another problem. Ohio State, LSU and Clemson could all take care of business and give the Playoff three undefeated teams. What will the committee do with a one-loss Utah against one-loss Oklahoma or Baylor if it comes to that? You are leaving a one-loss conference champion out of the Playoff.  How many one-loss Power 5 champions have been left out to this point? That list includes TCU and Baylor (2014) and Ohio State (2018). The more that happens, the more this process will be strained.  Possible solution: Perfect the eight-team modelIt does not have to happen overnight, and you need the SEC to buy in to make it work. The details are obvious otherwise. Put the quarterfinal games on campus. Wait until all five Power 5 conferences play nine — or even 10 — conference games. That would beef up and protect the regular season.  Figure out the proper format for the conference championship games, with or without divisions. Have a consistent model across the 10 conferences that produces a far more dramatic conference championship weekend. If you want to ditch conference championship weekend and seed out the best teams, then that’s fine, too.  Conference championship weekend and the College Football Playoff do not mix.We have pointed out this problem since the CFP began in 2014. Five years later, we are no closer to addressing the three biggest issues with this weekend. last_img read more

Urban Meyer rumors: Browns have ‘strong interest’ in hiring former Ohio State, Florida head coach

first_imgI’m hearing that the #Browns have strong interest in former #OhioState head coach Urban Meyer, per sources.— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) January 2, 2020The Browns unceremoniously dismissed head coach Freddie Kitchens after a disappointing 6-10 season, which was mired in controversy and highlighted by Kitchens’ wardrobe choice later in the season. Kitchens was later joined in unemployment by general manager John Dorsey, whom is credited with building the current Browns’ roster.MORE: Ranking the 8 best candidates for Browns head coaching jobThe Browns are also interviewing former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy for the job, per the team.. We’re interviewing former Packers HC Mike McCarthy for our head coach opening.📰 » https://t.co/V20GvnQJS5 pic.twitter.com/ll3DpetKwD— Cleveland Browns (@Browns) January 2, 2020Meyer is a hot coaching candidate in the NFL sphere, with the Browns, Redskins and Cowboys reportedly interested in Meyer’s services. Dallas has yet to dismiss head coach Jason Garrett, whose contract expired following the 2019 season. The Redskins recently hired former Panthers head coach Ron Rivera to the same position. Meyer, a three-time national champion head coach, brought two titles to Florida in 2006 and 2008 and one ring to Ohio State in 2014. He retired following the 2018 season due to health reasons, the second retirement of his coaching career due to the same circumstances.Meyer, a Toledo, Ohio native, has no prior NFL coaching experience and also headed up the programs at Utah and Bowling Green before his tenure at Florida.Whoever takes the Browns job will have a strong core in place, which features quarterback Baker Mayfield, Myles Garrett, wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. and running back Nick Chubb. Urban Meyer is on the Browns’ radar.The former Ohio State head coach is reportedly a target for Cleveland’s head coaching vacancy, per Bruce Feldman of The Athletic.last_img read more

Genesis Invitational picks, sleepers, betting advice

first_imgThe second bet that I’m not going to overthink this week is betting Koepka at 26/1. While Koepka hasn’t flashed his best form since coming back from a knee injury, he has slowly shown improvement in each tournament he’s played in 2020. Koepka is too talented of a player to be priced at over 25/1 in any tournament, and the elite quality of this field should help to bring out the best in a big-tournament player like Koepka. When you look at what is required to play well here — off-the-tee and short game — it’s easy to make a case for the four-time Major winner. Justin Rose 43/1 I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw Rose listed at 43/1. While Rose has yet to show much of anything in 2020, He should not be above 30/1 in any field in which he plays. Rose is one of the best ball strikers in the world when his game is on, and he posted a T4 finish the last time he played this event in 2017. Whether you’re a fan of Rose, you have to look at him as one of the top value bets of the week considering where other players in his class, such as Patrick Cantlay (17/1), Tony Finau (22/1), Hideki Matsuyama (26/1), Jason Day (35/1), and Adam Scott (35/1), are priced. Max Homa 110/1I liked Homa a lot last week at Pebble Beach, and he came through on the T20 bet with a T14 showing. I’m going right back to the California native again this week at a course that, on paper, fits him even better than Pebble Beach. Homa claimed his lone PGA Tour win at Quail Hollow last year, which has a lot of crossover characteristics as Riviera in terms of being demanding off of the tee and features plenty of long Par 4s. Homa is playing the most consistent golf of his career right now on the back of seven consecutive made cuts and three straight top-15 finishes. PGA DFS: Lineup Builder | How to winIt’s going to be very tempting to load up on the longer hitters this week, but looking back at the history of this event, we surprisingly see a ton of shorter hitters who can find fairways and get up and down around the greens. Steve Stricker, Bill Haas, and Aaron Baddeley all have won here within the past 10 years, so while off-the-tee stats are undoubtedly important, we absolutely cannot discount the short game. If you have more questions or are looking for more betting and DFS advice (NFL, MLB, NBA, PGA), check me out on Twitter (@DFSBenj).Key StatsStrokes Gained: Off the Tee Strokes Gained: Around the GreensPar-4 Scoring (450-475 yards) Par-5 Scoring Genesis Invitational Betting Advice, OddsOutright Bets to Consider*odds via DraftKings SportsbookBubba Watson 25/1 Half of the battle in golf betting is not to overthink obvious situations, and betting on an in-form Watson at Riviera at 25/1 in as obvious as it gets. Bubba has won this event three times and is coming off finishes of T6 and T3 in his past two events at Torrey Pines and TPC Scottsdale. His stats are all lining up for what I’m targeting this week: He ranks ninth in “SG: OTT”  and 21st in “SG: APP” on the season. I was tempted to start my card with Jon Rahm or Dustin Johnson, but there is just too much value to pass up on Bubba at a course at which he simply dominates. Brooks Koepka 26/1  The Genesis Invitational — formerly the Genesis Open — has always been one of the best events on the PGA Tour schedule, but this year features perhaps the best non-major field that we have seen in the last decade. Nine of the top-10 players in the world will tee it up in Los Angeles at Riviera Country Club this week, with Webb Simpson being the lone exception. The stacked field means that we are going to see some excellent value on outright bets once we get past the favorites of Rory McIlroy (7.5/1), Justin Thomas (9/1), and Jon Rahm (10/1). Riviera Country Club plays at a long 7,350-yard, Par-71 course that is going to require players to go driver heavy off the tee all week. The three Par 5s are all gettable holes, while the driveable Par-4 10th is one of the best short Par 4s in all of golf. Off the tee, players will not only have to be long, but they will also have to shape drives in both directions. The rough at Riviera isn’t the deepest that we’ll see on tour, but the kikuyu grass is sticky and can lead to some brutal lies. Finally, the green complexes at Riviera can be punishing if you short-side yourself, and getting up and down there can be among the toughest on tour. last_img read more

Missing March Madness bracket predictions: What 2020 NCAA Tournament field would have looked like

first_imgIt has been a few days now since the NCAA made the right call and canceled the 2020 NCAA Tournament, but we’re still very much in the mourning period. Again, right call, but the absence of the best sporting event of the year is going to take some getting used to.Just for fun, and to scratch that March Madness itch, here’s a projected look at the tournament field the Selection Committee might have shown us on Sunday, based on the information at hand. And by that, we mean the games that actually happened — not what we think would have happened if the rest of the conference tournaments had been played. Projected Nos. 12-16 seedsNo. 12 seeds: Stephen F. Austin (Southland), Cincinnati (AAC), Liberty (Atlantic Sun), Yale (Ivy)No. 13 seeds: Akron (MAC), Vermont (America East), North Texas (C-USA), New Mexico State (WAC),No. 14 seeds: Belmont (Ohio Valley), Bradley (MVC), UC Irvine (Big West), Northern Kentucky (Horizon)No. 15 seeds: North Dakota State (Summit), Hofstra (Colonial), Winthrop (Big South), Boston University (Patriot)No. 16 seeds: Eastern Washington (Big Sky), Little Rock (Sun Belt), *Robert Morris (Northeast), *Siena (MAAC), *Prairie View A&M (SWAC), *North Carolina Central (MEAC)*First Four teamsFirst four outTexas (19-12): NET/Pom/Sag: 70/61/51. vs. Q1: 5-8. vs. Q2: 2-4. vs. Q3/4: 12-0Xavier (19-13): NET/Pom/Sag: 47/45/48. vs. Q1: 3-11. vs. Q2: 7-2. vs. Q3/4: 9-0Stanford (20-12): NET/Pom/Sag: 33/43/80. vs. Q1: 4-7. vs. Q2: 3-3. vs. Q3/4: 13-2Memphis (21-10): NET/Pom/Sag: 59/59/50. vs. Q1: 2-5. vs. Q2: 6-2. vs. Q3/4: 13-3 It’s better than nothing, eh?MORE: NCAA canceling March Madness is for the best — but oh, what might have beenHere’s what we did for our Field of 68 automatic bids: Teams that already won conference tournaments stay, obviously. For the leagues that didn’t get to play their tournaments, the No. 1 seed gets that bid; for leagues that started their tournaments but hadn’t finished, the auto bid goes to the top remaining seed (in every case, that’s still the No. 1 overall seed).It’s not perfect, of course, but it’s the best solution:Projected No. 1 seedsKansas (Big 12), Gonzaga (WCC), Dayton (A-10), BaylorKansas (28-3): NET/Pom/Sag: 2/1/1. vs. Q1: 12-3. vs. Q2: 8-0. vs. Q3/4: 7-0Gonzaga (31-2): NET/Pom/Sag: 1/2/2. vs. Q1: 6-2. vs. Q2: 5-0. vs. Q3/4: 20-0Dayton (29-2): NET/Pom/Sag: 3/4/6. vs. Q1: 5-2. vs. Q2: 8-0. vs. Q3/4: 16-0Baylor (26-4): NET/Pom/Sag: 5/3/4. vs. Q1: 11-2. vs. Q2: 5-2. vs. Q3/4: 10-0Projected No. 2 seedsSan Diego State, Florida State (ACC), Creighton (Big East), VillanovaSan Diego State (29-2): NET/Pom/Sag: 4/6/9. vs. Q1: 4-1. vs. Q2: 7-0. vs. Q3/4: 18-1Florida State (26-5): NET/Pom/Sag: 10/15/5. vs. Q1: 6-3. vs. Q2: 8-2. vs. Q3/4: 12-0Creighton (23-7): NET/Pom/Sag: 11/12/14. vs. Q1: 9-7. vs. Q2: 6-0. vs. Q3/4: 8-0Villanova (24-7): NET/Pom/Sag: 13/18/10. vs. Q1: 10-6. vs. Q2: 6-1. vs. Q3/4: 8-0Projected No. 3 seedsMichigan State, Kentucky (SEC), Duke, MarylandMichigan State (22-9): NET/Pom/Sag: 7/7/3. vs. Q1: 9-7. vs. Q2: 5-2. vs. Q3/4: 8-0Kentucky (25-6): NET/Pom/Sag: 21/29/11. vs. Q1: 9-3. vs. Q2: 5-2. vs. Q3/4: 11-1Duke (25-6): NET/Pom/Sag: 6/5/8. vs. Q1: 5-3. vs. Q2: 6-2. vs. Q3/4: 14-1Maryland (24-7): NET/Pom/Sag: 18/11/12. vs. Q1: 8-7. vs. Q2: 6-0. vs. Q3/4: 10-0Projected No. 4 seedsSeton Hall, Louisville, Oregon (Pac-12), Wisconsin (Big Ten)Seton Hall (21-9): NET/Pom/Sag: 15/20/15. vs. Q1: 10-7. vs. Q2: 5-2. vs. Q3/4: 6-0Louisville (24-7): NET/Pom/Sag: 8/9/18. vs. Q1: 4-6. vs. Q2: 6-1. vs. Q3/4: 14-0Oregon (24-7): NET/Pom/Sag: 12/17/17. vs. Q1: 7-5. vs. Q2: 6-2. vs. Q3/4: 11-0Wisconsin (21-10): NET/Pom/Sag: 23/22/13. vs. Q1: 10-8. vs. Q2: 3-1. vs. Q3/4: 8-1MORE: College basketball’s champion can’t be identified without NCAA TournamentProjected No. 5 seedsButler, Ohio State, Virginia, AuburnButler (22-9): NET/Pom/Sag: 19/25/25. vs. Q1: 10-6. vs. Q2: 5-3. vs. Q3/4: 7-0Ohio State (21-10): NET/Pom/Sag: 16/8/7. vs. Q1: 6-9. vs. Q2: 6-1. vs. Q3/4: 9-0Virginia (23-7): NET/Pom/Sag: 44/42/21. vs. Q1: 5-3. vs. Q2: 7-3. vs. Q3/4: 11-1Auburn (25-6): NET/Pom/Sag: 27/33/24. vs. Q1: 7-3. vs. Q2: 7-2. vs. Q3/4: 11-1Projected No. 6 seedsBYU, West Virginia, Penn State, IowaBYU (23-8): NET/Pom/Sag: 9/13/19. vs. Q1: 3-5. vs. Q2: 5-3. vs. Q3/4: 15-0West Virginia (21-10): NET/Pom/Sag: 17/10/20. vs. Q1: 6-7. vs. Q2: 6-3. vs. Q3/4: 9-0Penn State (21-10): NET/Pom/Sag: 35/26/44. vs. Q1: 8-7. vs. Q2: 5-2. vs. Q3/4: 8-1Iowa (20-11): NET/Pom/Sag: 34/23/30. vs. Q1: 8-8. vs. Q2: 5-1. vs. Q3/4: 7-2Projected No. 7 seedsIllinois, Michigan, Saint Mary’s, ArizonaIllinois (20-10): NET/Pom/Sag: 39/30/26. vs. Q1: 6-8. vs. Q2: 4-1. vs. Q3/4: 10-1Michigan (19-12): NET/Pom/Sag: 24/16/22. vs. Q1: 6-10. vs. Q2: 5-2. vs. Q3/4: 8-0Saint Mary’s (25-8): NET/Pom/Sag: 31/38/39. vs. Q1: 3-5. vs. Q2: 5-1. vs. Q3/4: 17-2Arizona (21-11): NET/Pom/Sag: 14/19/40. vs. Q1: 3-7. vs. Q2: 6-3. vs. Q3/4: 12-1Projected No. 8 seedsProvidence, Colorado, Houston, LSUProvidence (19-12): NET/Pom/Sag: 37/40/27. vs. Q1: 7-8. vs. Q2: 5-0. vs. Q3/4: 7-4Colorado (21-11): NET/Pom/Sag: 25/35/76. vs. Q1: 5-4. vs. Q2: 6-4. vs. Q3/4: 10-3Houston (23-8): NET/Pom/Sag: 20/14/16. vs. Q1: 2-5. vs. Q2: 8-3. vs. Q3/4: 13-0LSU (21-10): NET/Pom/Sag: 28/37/37. vs. Q1: 4-8. vs. Q2: 7-1. vs. Q3/4: 10-1MORE: Using different metrics to determine final Field of 68Projected No. 9 seedsOklahoma, Rutgers, Indiana, USCOklahoma (19-12): NET/Pom/Sag: 46/36/31. vs. Q1: 5-9. vs. Q2: 6-3. vs. Q3/4: 8-0Rutgers (19-11): NET/Pom/Sag: 30/28/29. vs. Q1: 4-9. vs. Q2: 5-1. vs. Q3/4: 10-1Indiana (20-12): NET/Pom/Sag: 56/34/34. vs. Q1: 4-10. vs. Q2: 5-2. vs. Q3/4: 11-0USC (22-9): NET/Pom/Sag: 45/55/53. vs. Q1: 3-7. vs. Q2: 7-1. vs. Q3/4: 12-1Projected No. 10 seedsMarquette, Florida, Arizona State, Utah State (MWC)Marquette (18-12): NET/Pom/Sag: 26/31/41. vs. Q1: 5-10. vs. Q2: 6-2. vs. Q3/4: 7-0Florida (19-12): NET/Pom/Sag: 29/32/28. vs. Q1: 5-9. vs. Q2: 4-3. vs. Q3/4: 10-0Arizona State (20-11): NET/Pom/Sag: 54/63/63. vs. Q1: 5-8. vs. Q2: 4-3. vs. Q3/4: 11-0Utah State (26-8): NET/Pom/Sag: 40/41/33. vs. Q1: 3-4. vs. Q2: 2-2. vs. Q3/4: 19-2Projected No. 11 seedsTexas Tech, UCLA, N.C.

Best roommate you could ever ask for always picking up after @ACzarnik7 and I love you buddy RIP Caver— Frank Vatrano (@Frank_Vatrano) April 11, 2020 View this post on Instagram To my best friend & love of my life, Colby 🤍 My heart is shattered. The amount of physical, mental, and emotional pain I am in when I think about never seeing, touching, or holding you again is unbearable. You are and will always be my person, my hero, the greatest thing to happen to me. I never dreamed of being a widow before our first wedding anniversary. Although, every cell in my body is lost without you, I promise to continue to make you proud. You were the best friend, husband, doggy daddy, and oh how I wished to see you as a baby daddy. I’ll see you again soon, Colb. You’ll be in heaven meeting me with a warm wet kiss. You’ll be with me every step of the way. I don’t want to stop writing just like I didn’t want to stop holding you this morning at the hospital. You are my everything. You always will be. Thank you for now being the best Guardian Angel. Just as you ended your vows, I am going to end with one word, AGAPE. ✨A post shared by Emily Cave (@em.cave) on Apr 11, 2020 at 8:42am PDTThe Oilers released a statement reading, “We want to express our deepest condolences to the family and friends after the passing of our teammate Colby Cave earlier this morning.
