Paulus to Syracuse? It's just silly

Former Duke point guard Greg Paulus is back at the top of the list of hot college sports topics. And it's not about the Duke basketball program bombing out last season. Nope. Now he will battle for the quarterback position at Syrucuse, a school whose football program has won only five games in the last two years.

Paulus grew up watching the Orange, since he went to school at the nearby Christian Brothers Academy. But don't you remember all the conversations about him looking into playing at Michigan? I guess he watched that episode of 12th Street Sports Bar in which we made fun of him and Michigan for even considering the notion.

"I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to play college basketball," Paulus said. "And I am very lucky to have another opportunity to do something else in college I love. I'm really excited about having a chance to further my education and play college football."

We will be very fortunate if we don't have to hear too much more from him. Blah.

Syrucuse student and blogger Kevin Cartini writes his three reasons Paulus will be bad for Syrucuse.

What do you think about Paulus' playing for Syrucuse?

Who's selling UT championship ring on eBay?

The Longhorns did not get their way in the recent Big 12 meetings. Big 12 coaches decided against changes to the current tiebreaker system and to use Bowl Championship Series standings as the method to break ties between more than two teams.

Here's something even better involving the Longhorns. Somebody has reportedly placed a University of Texas championship ring for sale on eBay. Click here for more details.

And with the 151st pick of the NFL Draft ...

The New York Giants select – a story line.

So Rhett Bomar is going to be in New York. For most athletes making the move from Sam Houston State to the Big Apple would be a huge shock to the system. I am sure Rhett will experience some of that.

One of the aspects of playing in New York that a lot of people seem to have problems with is dealing with the New York media. That is an area I don’t think Rhett will have any trouble with. He is certainly better equipped to handle the throng of reporters in New York than any other athlete coming out of Sam Houston State.

College baseball shocker ... kind of

It is kind of fitting that this happened on the night our show aired where we were talking about college baseball. Last night in Baton Rouge, Nicholls State upset the No. 1 team in the nation, LSU with a 3-1 victory.

Headline in Thibodaux, La. this morning: Nicholls stuns top-ranked LSU, 3-1

Did Sports Center have it? Any of the national online network sites have it? Take a look at the designated college sports page on those sites and tell me if you find it.

If this were football or basketball, you couldn't get away from this story. There would be interviews with coaches and players, we would have heard the radio highlight clip 100 times already, the experts would be telling us what is wrong with LSU and the term greatest upset of all-time would have been used on more than one occasion.

When Appalachian State beat Michigan in Ann Arbor, it sent shockwaves though college football, and App State was the two-time reigning national champions in their division. Nicholls State was 10-44 last season, they are a sub-.500 team this season and currently sit in 8th place in the Southland Conference.

Granted baseball is a different sport. On any given night a pitcher can get hot and shut a team down. Last night the Colonels used eight different pitchers to keep the LSU hitters off balance.

I think that is one of the things that makes college baseball great. On any given night a team can be vulnerable and lose to a perceived lesser opponent, even a national champion contender.

While in the grand scheme of things, Nicholls beating LSU in baseball is not a huge shocker. I think it is a feat worth noting, and it is a shame more people are not aware of what happened in college baseball last night.

I walked in to the Fox Sports Grill in the Galleria in Houston, Texas and was immediately impressed. A giant box truss loaded down with lights and wires sat over the bar closest to the front door. Even though we're used to coming in to a lit studio back at home, the lights seemed blinding. A buzz of excitement filled the air.

Kevin turned to me and said," This feels real." He was right. This felt like a real television show. I had a moment like that when we first started showing nationally. Quickly we fell into our places around the bar.

I walk around the bar and go behind, completely oblivious to the fact that every bartender in the place was giving me a strange look. After I introduced myself and explained I was the host and just play a bartender, they seemed to be alright with it. Audrey and Flash (yes, that's what he told us his name was) were the bartenders on our side and took care of us.

Overall, it was one of the smoothest shows we've ever taped. Everyone involved was pleased with the look and the operation. James, the general manager of the Fox Sports Grill, and his entire crew were very accommodating of the entire production staff, crew and cast.

I can't wait to go back down there. I had a lot of fun.

And that's all this week from behind the (real) bar...

Then there were two

Well, it looks like the NCAA Tournament championship game is finally set. While it's not much of a surprise that North Carolina, who everyone tabbed the national champ before the season began, is in the final, how about Michigan State?

The Spartans entered the tournament as an underdog, mainly because the Big 10, well, wasn't that good this season. But as the top teams often do, Michigan State peaked at the right time. The Spartans were unbelievable in their run to the title game. They knocked off overall top-seeded Louisville, then, with the exception of 30 seconds or so late in the game, easily topped UConn, two of the best teams from what is supposed to be the best conference in college basketball -- the Big East. That dunk by Durrell Summers over Stanley Robinson was freaking sweet and Kalin Lucas was solid.

It was a great feel-good story for Detroit. The economy has been tough on us all, but at least for a couple of days, the folks in Michigan (who are really struggling) have something to believe in (especially considering how bad the Pistons and Lions are).

With that said, North Carolina is on a mission. The Tar Heels have been spectacular in the tournament, winning all their games by at least 12 points. I know that UNC dismantled Michigan State on the same court at Ford Field at the beginning of the season, but that was then and this is now. I think the Spartans will battle to the end, but the Tar Heels are too talented.

Ty Lawson, Tyler Hansbrough, Wayne Ellington, Danny Green, Deon Thompson and McDonald's All-Americans coming off the bench, that's sick. I said before the tournament started that Hansbrough came back for a reason and the X-factor would be Lawson's toe. Both seem to be doing just fine.

The Spartans need to take care of the ball and dictate the pace of the game. Michigan State would have to have its best offensive game of the season to have any hopes if the game turns into a shootout. The Tar Heels are that good, have that many guns in their arsenal and can score when and where ever they want to.

My prediction? North Carolina pulls away late and wins its fifth national title in this one.

Williams vs. Izzo, we are in for a treat. Enjoy it. I know I will.

The perfect baseball weather...

...or not.

We haven't played baseball here at Sam Houston since the three game thrashing dealt out by UT- San Antonio last weekend. Three games have been rained out, Tuesday against Baylor at Don Sanders, Wednesday against Houston Baptist at the Don, and the first game of this weekends home conference series against Northwestern State.

This will no longer be just a normal conference series. The Bearkats are coming off of a tough sweep and have been sitting idly for five full days. It also seems as if every team in the conference is sitting right around .500 in SLC play. So this will not be a run of the mill series, the Kats will be fighting the fatigue of having not played. They will be struggling to shake off the cobwebs from being let down by mother nature. In a sport where you play every day of the week, sitting for five straight days can be completely detrimental.

Saturday (weather permitting) will now be a double header against Northwestern State and Sunday (weather permitting) will be the series finale. Sam Houston has a team ERA of 6.00 but NWST is not bringing a staff much better with a team ERA of 5.87. That puts both teams at the bottom of the conference in pitching. If you were looking for the pitching to wake back up, this may not be the series for that. I would expect runs. The Bearkats have the best team batting average in the conference and are second in hits. This may be the weekend that the runs come back. Although the Kats are leading in hitting, they are just sixth in runs scored.

This could be a very interesting and important series for Sam Houston. It all gets started tomorrow at 1:30 (weather permitting).

View From Behind the Bar...

By Michael Oder, host of 12th Street Sports Bar

This week's show airs during Spring Break for a majority of college campuses. Sam Houston State University had theirs the week before. Kevin and I were the only people really phased by that, Cody and Anna Megan aren't in school anymore and Jason only got one official day off. Getting back into the swing of things isn't hard for any of us so we got right to work.

Since it is March, we spent the show looking at brackets, filling out brackets, discussing who's bracket was great and who's was terrible, generally talking about brackets. You'll see that there is a consensus that the bar as to which teams are going to go deep and which won't. Cody has an interesting take on the Washington Huskies this year. You can read his post on that here.

We took the middle segment to pause and talk about the Southland Conference Tourney and how Sam Houston did. Not very good is the short answer. SHSU rival Stephen F. Austin won the tournament and plays Syracuse in the 1st round. Good luck to them and we'll see them back in the state shortly. No one seems to think they'll get past the 1st round.

After that, we quickly got back into the bracket, talking east and south regions.

A SIDE NOTE: The Bar doesn't have an official bracket (yet), so Kevin and his girlfriend decided to put one up on a wall in our apartment. I supervised the construction and must say it is a spectacular thing to behold. So I will be using it as the Official 12th Street bracket. Teams that win will move along and we will be posting pictures as the bracket fills out. There will be some surprises with each winning team's progression, so stay tuned! More on the bracket itself soon!

Thanks to our emails this week from Becky in Arlington, TX and JR in Fresno, California. We appreciate your comments and hopefully we answered them!

That's all this week from behind the bar...

March really is Madness

Watching some of the opening round games of the NIT really has me pumped about the Dance starting in a couple of days. I was just looking over my bracket, and I'm still scratching my head about some of my picks. Outside of the state of Washington, I might be one of the few people that like the Huskies' chances.

That's right, I have Washington in the championship game. That is going to be hard seeing that the Huskies will have to go through UConn and Memphis, which is going to be fired up because of that No. 2 seed, just to get out of the regional and then possibly playing Louisville, the No. 1 overall seed, in the Final Four. My logic is simple, the Pac-10 usually has a team in the Final Four, so I'm going with the Huskies because this is not going to be UCLA's year, USC doesn't have O.J. Mayo and the rest, well I'm just not that impressed. I also like players like Jon Brockman, big guys who like to battle in the paint and average double figures in scoring and rebounding. That's why I'm keeping my fingers crossed that North Carolina and Oklahoma meet up so we can see Tyler Hansbrough and Blake Griffin go at it.

The best thing about the NCAA Tournament is that you can make odd-ball predictions because who knows what is really going to happen. Did that many people believe that George Mason was going to go as far as the Final Four a few years back? It's easy to go with the typical favorites, but it is more fun to go out on a limb. If Washington loses early, then I look like a fool, but if they make a deep run, then I look like less of a fool.

That is what makes this such a special event -- 64 teams with a chance to be the last one standing. Now, if we can just get the powers that be to realize this in college football, life would be great.

The Play-in game

Call it what you want, I am not a fan of the play-in game. The NCAA can say all they want that it is just as big a part of the NCAA Tournament as everything else, but the truth is, no one really cares about this game outside of the fan bases of the two teams playing.

The problem I have with this game is it really takes away from the tournament experience of the two teams playing. This year Alabama State and Morehead State are squaring off for the right to play Louisville. The biggest problem I have with the play-in game, is these two teams have already earned that right to play Louisville or whichever No. 1 seed they get paired against.

They have done everything the NCAA asked them to do. They won their conference tournaments, just like Stephen F. Austin, Radford and East Tennessee State. They will all be playing on Thursday and Friday. I don't like the fact that every year two teams are punished because they are considered the two worst teams in the field.

I would rather the NCAA put both of those teams in the field as No. 16 seeds and have the play-in game between the two bubble teams. This year you could have Arizona and St. Mary's playing for the right to get into the tournament as a No. 12 seed. That is where all the debate is on selection Sunday anyway.

Instead of comparing RPI's, strength of schedule, last 12 games and whatever else the committee looks at, you just pair the two teams together and the winner moves on. Is that going to stop the arguing? No. There are still going to be teams that feel they were snubbed. But it will give two deserving teams a chance to play in the NCAA tournament and force two teams that may have been left out to play their way in as the name of the game suggests.

Plus, I think the ratings for that game will be a lot better than they will be tonight.

Bracket Contest-Win a Troy Aikman autographed football!

We wanted to let everyone know we have an exciting contest for you for March Madness. We are setting up a group on to find the viewer with the best bracket this March.

The best part is you are playing for more than just bragging rights. While most sites are giving away $1 million to someone if they get a prefect bracket (it will never happen by the way) we are giving away a prize to the person who wins the group. Courtesy of our corporate sponsor Wing Stop, we will be giving away a football autographed by former Dallas Cowboy and Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman.

There are a few steps we need you to go through to enter. First go to and set up an entry in the bracket contest and join the group “12th Street Sports Bar.” After your bracket is set up, you must e-mail us at and tell us your Entry name, Full name, address and phone number. It is important to e-mail us with your information prior to the start of the tournament so we can contact the winner afterwards. Also, by e-mailing, you give 12th Street Productions permission to use your name during the show.

In the event of a tie, the final score from the winning and losing teams in the championship game will be used as the first tie breaker. If it is still tied, then it will be based on the number of correct Final Four teams. If there is still a tie, then it will be broken by the person who correctly predicted the most first-round games correctly. If it is still tied after that, then the winner will be draw at random.

Good Luck.

A couple of things from this week

It is going to be a busy week on the show with the NCAA tournament starting next week. That is pretty much going to dominate the talk at the bar (as it should).

There are a few things that have happened this week that we may not get to that I wanted to comment on. One story that has not gotten much coverage is a situation that happened this week in the America East Conference.

Voting for all-conference can be tough. I have done it for seven years and there are always varying opinions on who should make first team and who is the player of the year. Most of the voters only see a player in action once or twice in a season and have to make a determination at the end of the year of who are the most deserving 15 players.

It can be a difficult process and there is always going to be someone left out. It is the nature of the beast. But what happened in the America East Conference this week is inexcusable. Binghamton won the regular season and guard D.J. Rivera led the league in scoring. He was also top 10 in rebounding, but when the all-conference list was announced, he was not player of the year.

The problem with this story is that he also was not named to the first team. Rivera, along with a teammate were both second team selections. Apparently, Rivera was denied the honor by a group of coaches in the league as a protest to an NCAA decision to allow Rivera to play after transferring from St. Joseph's without sitting the required season for moving from one Division I university to another. Rivera was granted a hardship waiver from the NCAA and was allowed to play this season.

The most unbelievable part of this story is the conference office is not only confirming the coaches voted with an agenda, but is also condoning it. Conference commissioner Patrick Nero said "It wasn’t a protest toward the kid at all. It was a protest toward the NCAA in allowing him to be eligible. It’s unfortunate, I don’t think it’s right. It’s unfair to the young man. He didn’t do anything wrong."

Nero should be ashamed of his comments. This should have never been made public. If Nero had any sense what-so-ever, he would have taken care of this internally. The coaches who left Rivera off should have had their ballots thrown out and never counted toward the final vote total. Rivera may still have not been the player of the year, but my guess is he would have been a first team selection where he belonged.

Binghamton and Rivera got their revenge, winning the America East Conference Tournament to grab a spot in next week's dance. Rivera fittingly was named tournament MVP.

I stayed up for all 6 OT's

When I got home from Katy on Thursday, I wasn't planning on watching much basketball. After seeing the Kats knocked out in the first round, I just wasn't up to it. But the Big East Tournament game between Syracuse and UConn was on and I have always been a Husky fan so I turned the game on to watch the second half. Little did I know that would turn out to be a three hour commitment.

I was texting a few people at the end of regulation after they declared Eric Devendorf's 3 to win the game had come as the final horn was sounding. Syracuse seemingly had a victory and it was taken from them. A few people wanted to see the game end that way, but I was glad it was going to OT. I am a sucker for drama and overtime always brings drama.

Midway through the second overtime I sent out a text saying they might as well play 5 OTs. And then the fourth OT came and went and I really couldn't believe I was watching a game go to the fifth. In the fifth OT I didn't think either team was going to score. Both teams were gassed. Syracuse resorted to playing a walk-on who had a total of 60 minutes all season.

After the fifth overtime ended, I didn't see any foreseeable way either team was going to win. It was a tournament, so someone was going to have to move one. Even though I was rooting for UConn to win, I wasn't upset when Syracuse sealed the deal in the sixth and final OT.

It was fun to watch those guys lay it on the line for 70 minutes of basketball. They were still diving on the floor and running and gunning even though you could see the guys who had been out there the whole time had nothing left.

I still think UConn is a No. 1 seed. Despite the loss in the first round, I think they showed enough in that game they deserve a spot on the top line of the bracket. Amazingly Syracuse knocked off West Virginia the next night in overtime once again, and then pushed Louisville to the brink. I always like Syracuse in the NCAA tournament. Jim Boeheim is one of the best coaches in college basketball and he always finds a way to win. I just have to wonder how much this run in the Big East Tournament will affect them in next week's Big Dance.

View From the Bar...

This week's show was a blast! It seems like each week we have more fun. I don't know how we do it...

It could be that March Madness has set in on 12th Street. We talked about some of the conference finals coming up. It's always interesting when we talk big picture at the bar. We've seen some wild things happen this year, so everyone plays close to their vest. Jason even went with his heart!

As I write this, the Bearkats are done playing in the Southland Conference Tourney. I was pulling for them to fight like hell and make it to the Championship, but alas, it wasn't in the cards. At least we have a clean team and a coach that knows the rules. That cannot be said for Florida State...

More developments from the Sunshine State as the NCAA asked the football program to vacate wins. Mixed feelings at the bar on whether or not this tarnishes Bobby Bowden's legacy. This could be a good time for him to step down or retire.

I think the best part about 12th Street is after the show. We all hang around, eat wings (Thanks WingStop!) and unwind. For everyone at the bar, myself sometimes included, the weekends mean work. Games, and trips with teams, and more games; that evening is like a release valve. I know I feel refreshed for the rest of the week. We'll get some pictures up of our after the show shenanigans!

That's all this week from behind the bar...

Number 4 is done.

For those who wonder why I count the shows and why that count is so low. I'm marking the time since our national debut. There have been somwhere around 100 or more shows, I don't know the exact number. I can't even remember the number of shows I've been here to host! So we are trying to keep it simple. We're 4 for 4.

The show this week was fun, like always. Interesting third segment where we talked about economics. It's a scary thought realizing that some young athletes might be accepted to a University on scholarship only to have their sport cut. Luckily, Northern Iowa has been very cool about working with their student athletes on scholarships. Jason had a very cool insight into how Athletic Departments work when it comes to money and as I learned it's not as cut-and-dried as you like it to be. Then again, what isn't these days?

We did get a new email address! Right now, you are being sent here to our blog when you type in (on the interweb). Of course, we are working on our web prescense and want to provide as much cool stuff as we can! Jarrod, one of our production guys came up with the "tvshow" part. I gave him a pretty hard time on the show for it. It gets the job done, though! Thanks to everyone who has emailed us so far! Many of you are from all over the country and it makes us feel real special when we here from ya'll!

One last thing... I'm trying out different phrases to close the show. It's something every host or anchor tries to figure out. This week was "You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here." It's an old bartender line. I figure since I'm a bartender it might work. Let me know what you think! Comment here or send us an email!

Show Number 3 is in the bag, so they say.

This show had a great feel to it from the beginning. Everyone came into the bar with a good attitude. Our topics were exciting and the guys and gals had plenty to say (both on and off the camera). Overall, probably our best show that's aired Nationally. There have only been three so far, but hey, it still counts!

After we wrapped on the show, everyone hung around and had some wings, courtesy of our local WingStop (Thanks Kelley and Tabby!!). They also gave an interview to the SHSU TV News reporters. That was fun. I can't speak for everyone else, but giving a news interview made me feel closer to being a real TV star, haha. I'll try and get the story from them to post on here.

Our Facebook group has grown tremendously over the past few weeks; up over 300 folks now. Thanks to everyone who befriended us! That's where we are going to be looking for show ideas, places to do our show from, email questions, the whole works, so check it often.

E-mail us! Let us know what you think of the show! Have a question? Send it in! Want to know what the drink specials are? Write us!

This is it. This week was what we have been waiting on; our first national television debut. Thankfully it all went off without a hitch! Most of the group at the bar got to see the show when it aired on FCS, but Kevin and I watched it on a DVD that he slipped away from TV78. We both had to work sporting events that afternoon. The show looks amazing. Everyone got phone calls all afternoon from friends and loved ones telling us about the same thing. My mom called when the show started. She also took a picture of the program guide for me.
A huge smile came across my face when I saw the show on the guide. We're up against "Gator Zone" but I think we'll do just fine...
