Cinderella was dancing in this years College Football Playoffs but Alabama was the clock that struck midnight. The Cincinnati Bearcats were the first Group of Five school to make the CFB Playoffs since their inception in 2014. Alabama, on the other hand, has been a mainstay in the playoffs as they've only missed one in that same time. Cincinnati's defense did an excellent job of containing the Crimson Tide a majority of the game but ultimately was undone by their offense. Cincinnati could only manage 218 total yards and scored zero touchdowns in the game. Quarterback Desmond Ridder completed 17-of-32 passes for only 144 passing yards for an average of 4.5 passing yards per completion. Alabama running back Brian Robinson Jr. had an outstanding game, rushing for a Crimson Tide Bowl record 204 rushing yards. The Heisman Trophy winner, Bryce Young, also contributed with three passing touchdowns. While the Bearcat would have preferred the victory, was this a great moral win for non-Power 5 school?
Welcome in Slumpbusters! The Heisman race in 2021 had a lengthy list of preseason hopefuls but only one made it to the end. Bryce Young a week after securing another SEC Championship for Alabama was given the most prestigious award in College Football. Young set a SEC Championship record for passing yards in the win against a Georgia defense that had given up just over 40 points all season. Young threw for over 4,322 yards with 43 touchdowns and the second best QBR in the nation at 88.9. Other players that were invited to the ceremony included Ohio State's C.J. Stroud, Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett and Michigan pass rusher Aidan Hutchinson. Young, a sophomore, has an opportunity to defend his Heisman as he is not yet eligible to enter the NFL Draft after this season. #RollTide #BryceYoung #Alabama
The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament is over and it is the Baylor Bears cutting down the nets. Baylor led by a 22-point effort from Jared Butler and a fantastic defensive performance stopped Gonzaga. Gonzaga, after surviving UCLA on a Jalen Suggs OT buzzer-beater, could not preserve their perfect season. The National Title is Baylor Universities first in the history of their men's basketball program. Would you have preferred perfection or happy to set the championship end up in Waco?

Texas is in fact not back and may never come back from this devastating upset. The 14-seeded Abilene Christian Wildcats defeated the Texas Longhorns 53-52. Texas, the Big-12 champions, outshot ACU from the field but failed to receive their first NCAA Tournament victory under Shaka Smart. Smart, the former Virginia Commonwealth head coach, is now 0-3 in six seasons as the Longhorns coach. Is it time for Texas to move on? Is Abilene Christian the next big Cinderella story? Is March Madness madder than its ever been before?
