Beside The Points For Monday, March 19, 2018

Monday, March 19th, 2018

Things That Caught My Eye The University of Maryland-Baltimore County accomplished what college basketball fans have long considered inevitable if strikingly unlikely, becoming the first-ever No. 16 seed to defeat a No. 1 seed in the University of Virginia. This year looked rather good for a 16-over-1 upset, but analysts were actually more bullish on University of Pennsylvania to be the underdog to pull it off. UMBC’s ride in the tourney was ended by Kansas State in the round of 32 on Sunday, but their ticket into the history books is punched. [FiveThirtyEight] For the first time since seeding began in 1979, a region will not have a single team left in the Sweet Sixteen who entered the tournament

Jets gave up far more than the last team to move up to No. 3

Monday, March 19th, 2018

The Jets paid a huge quarterback premium to move up to the third overall pick in the draft. To get pick No. 3, the Jets gave up pick No. 6, pick No. 37, pick No. 49 and a second-round pick next year. The last time a team moved up to the third overall pick was in the 2013 NFL draft, and that team gave up a whole lot less.

Jets may have had no choice but to make trade to No. 3 now

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

The Jets surely didn’t make the move from No. 6 to No. 3 in order to get the third pick. The Jets will now spend the next month and a half fretting over whether the guy they want will be there after the first two picks are made. The Colts may have insisted on doing the deal now, possibly because another team was willing to make the move now if the Jets didn’t.

A year ago, when the Jets decided to move on from veteran linebacker David Harris, the team took solace in the presence of Demario Davis.
