On The Jake Brown Show this week, I open reacting to my Desi Relaford interview blowing up. It was the talk of sports radio in Philadelphia on Thursday, and I reacted to what was said and false things that were said in Philly. I also talk about the NFL free agency signings, including Kirk Cousins fully guaranteed contract, Teddy Bridgewater to the Jets, and Richard Sherman negotiating his own contract. I also give my NCAA Tournament picks and preview the Big Dance with Reid Forgrave from CBS Sports and GQ Magazine.

Sunday’s loss in the CAA Semis for the Hofstra Pride men’s basketball team turned out to be the most heartbreaking loss in program history. A game that ended up trending on Twitter and that left everyone on the edge of their seat, ended in a 92-91 William & Mary win in double overtime. The players were emotional after the game, and clearly were devastated by the loss in a game they had a plethora of chances to win.
