The excitement is high and the credibility is low in this northbound chariot of college basketball ridiculousness.  I must say, when CBS Sports first offered us a vehicle and an expense account, I thought they were recruiting us to play point guard at USC.  Turns out they were just looking for a group of guys willing to live out of a rental car for 11 days while checking out some of college basketball’s most prestigious venues and bracket-busting games.  Now that we can do…

Our man-tastic voyage set sail this morning from Lexington, KY.   Our vessel, a Kia Rondo, is jam packed with everything a college basketball blogger would ever need:  computer equipment, media credentials, schedules, scouting reports, a ‘Blogger on Board’ window decal, and more 5-Hour Energy shots than Osi Umenyiora and Braylon Edwards can endorse.   

As of right now, we’re somewhere in Indiana en route to Marquette in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  We don’t have a whole lot to report thus far, other than a windmill farm in Indiana and Tomlin’s Ashton Kutcher-like celebrity status on Twitter, but we’ll pick things up once we arrive at our first stop.

I’m signing out for now.  Tomlin will be on here shortly to tell you a little more about what’s ahead, if we can get him to quit singing this ridiculous song from the backseat:

Just found out some people are having difficulty getting signed up, maybe all the KSR crew are trying at the same time.  We may have had a Drew sighting on TV!

Watching the game, are you guys across from the bench?  I'll hang up now and keep watching for you.

Not sure why but my comments aren't showing.  I sound like I'm on the KSR site!  Anyway, good luck guys, you're making us proud & I hope this gets through.
