The Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament is winding down. We saw some regression to the mean and some big dog’s continue to roll. We recap in this week’s SSM.

Loyola has fallen, no more Sister Jean
Oregon State was tough, looked plenty mean
The Ramblers played well, but OSU played great
The twelfth-seeded Beavers headed to the Elite Eight

Oral Roberts Golden Eagles, this year’s Cinderella
Their parade was rained on by Arkansas, no umbrella
The Razorbacks locked up ORU like an old school jailer
Next up for Arkansas in the Elite Eight? One seed Baylor.

The top seeds keep rolling including Michigan
The Wolverines rolled FSU and won again
Juwan Howard has his boys posed for a deep run
It looks like Michigan is far from done

The third remaining one seed, Gonzaga Bulldogs
Remain clear-minded winners, no signs of fog
An 18 point win in the Sweet Sixteen
The Zags are 29-0, their perfect record’s still clean

A early St. Patrick’s Day celebration in this week’s SSM.

The bracket is set, worry no more
Gonzaga, Michigan, Illinois and Baylor
Are your number one seeds, cream of the crop
Top flight sports entertainment, who’ll end up on top?

After 20 years, Drew Brees has retired
An incredible career, but time has expired
A sure fire Hall of Famer, 15 years with the Saints
He’s given his all, no complaints

If you know about baseball, you know Spring Training
Can get a little weird, normalcy waning
This week we had a 22-pitch at bat
Luis Guillorme from the Mets, how about that?
