Adidas debuted a new NEON JERSEY for three of their schools; Baylor, Cincinnati and Louisville -- just in time for "March Madness."
And, wouldn't you know -- all three of those schools are currently UNDEFEATED in their new Adidas jerseys -- each team beating HIGHER RANKED opponents in the new gear.
While I've seen many stories "with not so positive comments" about this new look. I have to admit -- I like it!
In fact, I think it would have been fun to see Adidas create a NEON GOLD jersey for the IRISH.

The relay team of Jonathan Shawel (SENIOR -- Placentia, CA), Chris Giesting (FRESHMAN -- Batesville, IN), Randall Babb (SENIOR -- Wheaton, IL) and Jeremy Rae (JUNIOR -- Fort Erie, ONT) took first place last night in the DISTANCE MEDLEY RELAY at the NCAA INDOOR TRACK & FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS!
- Jonathan Shawel ran the lead-off leg: 1,200 meters
- Chris Giesting ran the second leg: 1,600 meters
- Randall Babb ran the third leg: 800 meters
- Jeremy Rae ran the anchor leg: Mile
What I found amazing was the top four teams in the Championship Final -- after running that many laps -- all finished within ONE SECOND of each other. Had to be an exciting race!

Seven minutes into last night's game, it looked like we were going to be able to handle Louisville on one of the big stages in sport -- Madison Square Garden.
The Irish were leading 15 - 9 with the ball -- and then it all went wrong. Thirteen minutes later the IRISH had only scored two points (free throws) and the game was over at halftime...
Now we wait until Sunday night to see where Notre Dame will be seeded, where and when we will play next -- and WHO.
