The Kentucky Wildcats and UConn Huskies are playing on Monday night and the TV schedule has the start time for the game at 9:10 pm ET and comes from CBS live for the NCAA National Championship Game in college basketball as UK and Connecticut battle to be the last school left in the March Madness tourney.
Kentucky and UConn come in playing very well and Kevin Ollie has them into the finals in just his second season and it comes after the team was barred from participating last year. Kentucky is into the finals once again and they came in after being in three Final Fours in four seasons and now that idiot fan that got a 2014 championship tattoo doesn't look so dumb, as the team is still alive to make good on it.
Nate Silver launched his new website FiveThirtyEight for ESPN and the new FiveThirtyEight.com started off with Final Four predictions and a number of other articles with an analytical approach and after making his name at the New York Times by predicting all 538 electoral votes for the 2012 election, he now will be featured on ESPN.com and on ABC during the year at election times.
Silver made headlines last year after leaving the New York Times for ESPN and it came after his contract was up at the Times and he opted to leave to broaden the scope of FiveThirtyEight, which will now run under the ESPN banner. Silver's website will cover sports, politics, culture, economics and more with a statistical and analytical-driven approach and at the time it was seen as a big coup for ESPN to grab him from the New York Times, as Silver's website generated a ton of traffic and attention during the 2012 presidential campaign when he correctly predicted all the electoral votes, hence the name of the blog.
The 36-year-old Silver is the latest journalist to get his own website and staff dedicated to his vision and it's in the same vein as Peter King and his MMQB.com website as well as Bill Simmons and his Grantland.com website.
