Number 1 goes down…repeat twice

The musical chairs for top overall seed continues to dominate the headlines

SONG SELECTION:  Please see below for another special tribute to one great singer.

So far in this college basketball season, Northern Iowa upset North Carolina when they started the season ranked Number 1.

The year 2016 was barely a week old when Michigan State lost in Iowa.

On Monday night, Iowa State showed a lot of guts and heart as a raucous crowd in Ames help take the latest school to ascend to the top ranks, Oklahoma by a 77-72 count (just fyi, the last time the Sooners were #1 was the last regular season poll in March 1990).

Syracuse upset Duke in Cameron Indoor Stadium, 64-62 largely due to the efforts of one man.  Orange forward Tyler Roberson was simply a beast on the boards.  More on that in a few lines.

This was the first time since February 11, 2007 that Duke has lost three consecutive games.

The Blue Devils record stands at 14-5 (3-3 in ACC play),  even though they put up 37 shot from three-point land out of their 62 field-goal attempts.  Duke only made 10 on the night against the Orange’s vaunted 2-3 zone defense.  Marshall Plumlee kept the Blue Devils close by scoring 19 points to go along with 17 rebounds — including 11 on the offensive end. O

But the night simply belonged to Tyler Roberson  He had only 14 points, but his 20 rebounds were historic on many fronts.  12 of them were on the offensive glass leading to 17 second-chance points, keeping Duke’s undermanned unit mostly at bay. and grabbing 20 rebounds.  Roberson was the first Syracuse player to get 20 rebounds in a game since Rick Jackson did in 2010, and those 20 rebounds are the most by any opponent in the history of Cameron Indoor Stadium.  The initial record was 18 shared by four players from 1957 up to 2007.

Couple that with Auburn shocking Kentucky on Saturday and Wisconsin coming up huge against Michigan State on Sunday in Madison, clearly one thing comes to mind.

Lead singer from The Eagles passes away at 67 after a lengthy illness

Glenn Frey commanded success whenever the strobe lights came on.  Throughout the 1970’s when The Eagles had hit after hit with “Hotel California”, “Peaceful, Easy Feeling” and “Tequila Sunrise”, in my mind–nothing came close to his work as a solo artist.

From “You Belong To The City” seen on the once great NBC series Miami Vice, and the early years of MTV–

This song is from the original Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack in 1984.

Here is my tribute to one simply great singer and never, ever forget that Eddie Murphy laugh.  (If any of my online friends dare me, I will mimic it for you).

Perfect timing for this song, considering all of the upsets going on in college basketball.

Why, you may ask?
Because, as Glenn Frey said himself way back when…
