Jan 18, 2022

1. There were five NFL playoff games this weekend, but only one featured a broadcaster new to the postseason.

College basketball rankings: Villanova pushes winning streak to six games after shaking disappointing start - CBS Sports

Jan 18, 2022

In what is threatening to become a tradition, multiple No. 1 seeds from my Friday bracket lost on Saturday. This time, it was Baylor and LSU. Despite being the first team ranked No. 1 in the polls to lose two home games in a week, the Bears, who were the No. 1 overall seed Friday before their home loss to Oklahoma State, are still a No. 1 seed for now because of the quality of their wins and their schedule.
