- The Eagles Have Landed: For the first time in NCAA history, a 15-seed has stormed into the Sweet 16, busting brackets open all across the land. How is Florida Gulf Coast, in their first appearance in the tournament, doing the impossible, and when will their unprecedented run come to an end? Hear our take.

- The Other Hot Team in the NBA: While the Miami Heat have had all the headlines with their record-breaking streak, the Denver Nuggets have quietly been churning out win after win over the last month as well. How does George Karl have this team playing at such a high level without a bona fide superstar on the roster, and how big of a threat are the Nuggets to come out of the West? Our answers may surprise you.

- Return of the Old Tiger?: Tiger Woods picked up his third win of the year on Monday, stirring up talks that the Tiger of old may finally be back. What all has transpired over the last year to get Tiger back on track, and is he now the favorite to win the Masters in two weeks? We break it down.


We discuss the firings of Ben Howland at UCLA and Tubby Smith at Minnesota, and the extra curricular activity that took place between drivers Tony Stewart and Joey Logano following the Auto Club 400 Sprint Cup race on Sunday afternoon!

All this and much more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
