One Sole, Several Team Tops

Onesole - “The Original Interchangeable Shoe” Texas Tech OneSole Shoes

I just learned of OneSoles – the original interchangeable shoes – what a cool concept.  You have one pair of soles (available in various styles) with several interchangeable top choices.  They even have several teams* available as tops!  Beings I didn’t see Nebraska listed as a team option, I picked Texas Tech to show as an example as the Red Raiders are scheduled to play NU’s Huskers on 10/11.

*Other teams include Clemson University, Georgia Tech, Duke University, College of Charleston, University of Missouri (Mizzou), Louisiana State, Auburn University, University of Florida, Florida State, University of South Carolina, University of Kentucky, Marshall University, University of Alabama, University of Mississippi, University of Louisville, University of Michigan, University of North Carolina, Texas Christian University, Baylor University, University of Miami, Colorado State, University of Arkansas and U of Tennessee.

NFL Checks

Sport ANY Team on your Personal Bank Checks!

Our University Checks page is our most popular here at Sport The Style. But we get a lot of requests for specific team checks that aren’t listed.

The main reason why certain teams aren’t listed (and why there are no licensed NFL checks) is because the college or team will not grant a license for such.  But we found an alternative idea for you!

Artistic Photo Checks will let you upload your own pics on checks!

For example, if you’re looking for Ohio State Buckeye Checks, I’d suggest googling for an appropriate image you’d like to use on your checks, save and upload it like I did here (takes 2 seconds):

Ohio State Buckeye Checks

So now you can have ANY team on your checks!  Order your Artistic Photo Checks now! (and they are only $19.95 – cheaper than the bank and personalized to boot!)

Kansas Jayhawks Finally Come Through

Kansas wins third title

Kansas’ players celebrate on the court after defeating Memphis 75-68 in overtime. The Jayhawks scored the first six points in the extra stanza en route to their third national championship and first since 1988. ~ USA Today

I was excited to see my state neighbor to the south win the NCAA tournament title. Too bad, I didn’t win any money from my Kiwanis donation playing the Basketball Sweeps. But I did sell the winning ticket, so I’m hoping the winner will buy me a drink with their $400 winnings!

So now there’s a mad dash to get Kansas Jayhawk gear! Here’s my recommendations…

Final Four Fantastic

Talk about your top-heavy Final Four!  2 #1 seeds will play 2 #2 seeds in the National semifinals for the right to play for the NCAA basketball championship.  Let’s take a look at the matchups:

UCLA Bruins  vs  Florida Gators

UCLA Bruins vs Florida Gators

The Bruins defense has been dominating throughout the tournament, and showed up big time in shutting down Kansas to win the West Regional.  Arron Afflalo and Darren Collison are leading the Bruins into the rematch of last years Championship game against Florida, who dispatched Oregon with clutch shooting and rebounding at the end of the game.

Georgetown Hoyas  vs  Ohio State Buckeyes

Georgetown Hoyas vs Ohio State Buckeyes

The Hoyas are back in the Final Four after 22 years, and yet they look like the same team lead by Patrick Ewing.  Stout defense and strong inside play got them past North Carolina in overtime.  They’ll need every bit of that defense when they take on Ohio State.  While teams pack the zone to crowd Greg Oden, Mike Conley Jr. and Ron Lewis continue their awesome guard play with timely outside shots.  We’ll pulling for the Hoyas, but Ohio State has too much talent.  

Football Fanatics has your team gear lined up and ready to go!  Also, check out CBS Sports Store and ESPN Shop for March Madness gear! 

NCAA Tournament – East Regional

Last up are the beasts in the East in East Rutherford.

North Carolina Tar Heels  vs  Souther Cal Trojans

#1 North Carolina vs #5 Southern Cal

North Carolina comes in as yet another top seed who’s still winning, but not in convincing fashion.  Tyler Hansbrough has finally shed his facemask as it looked like he couldn’t see 2 feet in front of him.  UNC will need him to step up as USC comes in after a convincing win over #4 Texas.  USC’s looking good, but Carolina’s got too many horses.

Vanderbilt Commodores  vs  Georgetown Hoyas 

#6 Vanderbilt vs #2 Georgetown

Vanderbilt’s another ‘under the radar’ team who’s quietly made the Sweet 16, but make no mistake, this team can play defense.  It’s win over Florida in the regular season established the Commodores as at top SEC team.  Georgetown is another team making us at Sport nostolgic for the old days of Ewing, Mourning, and Mutombo.  And yet, the Hoyas play like they did 20 years ago:  dominating the inside and tough defense.  Look for the Hoyas to take Vandy, and the East.

NCAA Tournament – Midwest Regional

Let’s take a look at the Friday – Sunday games with the Midwest Regional in St. Louis

Florida Gators  vs  Butler Bulldogs

#1 Flordia Gators vs #5 Butler Bulldogs

The Gators are looking to repeat as tourney champs with its entire team back.  Although they’ve won the SEC tourney, they don’t seem to look like the dominant team we thought they’d be.  Butler’s a bit surprising at the #5 seed, but there’s nothing surprising about their defense.  Look for the Butler to keep this close, but the Gators bite the ‘Dogs.

Oregon Ducks  vs  UNLV Runnin Rebels

#3 Oregon Ducks vs #7 UNLV Runnin Rebels

The Ducks finished a quiet 3rd place in the PAC 10, including winning the conference tournament.  Aaron Brooks leads the team in scoring and assists.  We at Sportthestyle are happy to see UNLV back in the Sweet 16.  We long for the days of Moses Scurry, Larry Johnson, and Stacey Augmon, but it’s now Lon Kruger and his Kevin as being the ‘feel-good’ team of the tourney.  The Rebs make us nostalgic, but Oregon gets the win.

NCAA Tournament – South Regional

Up next is the South Regional being held in San Antonio

The Ohio State Buckeyes vs  Tennessee Volunteers

 #1 Ohio State vs #5 Tennessee

Ohio State comes in on a roll with several key wins and taking the Big 10 tournament.  Led by freshman phenom Greg Oden inside, the Buckeyes guards get plenty of outside looks.  Coming off a ‘lucky’ overtime win against Xavier in the 2nd round, OSU looks to keep their win streak going.  Tennessee comes in as one of the highest scoring offenses in the NCAA this year.  Their scoring potential could make this game interesting.  Look for a ton of points in this one, but OSU gets the win.

Texas A&M Aggies  vs  Memphis Tigers

#3 Texas A&M Aggies vs #2 Memphis Tigers

The Aggies are looking at a sizeable ‘home court’ advantage playing in their home state.  This program has come into its own under coach Billy Gillespie and has been able to score bigtime recruits like Acie Law.  Sport The Style has been a big John Calipari fans since his days at UMass.  He’s done an awesome job this year considering the injuries the Tigers have faced.  We’re inclined to go with the Coach who’s been this far before, but the home crowd pushes the Aggies to the win.

NCAA Sweet 16 – West Regional

65 teams are now down to 16 after the 1st 2 rounds of the 2007 NCAA Basketball Tournament.  No double digit seed has made it this far, but there are some feel-good schools worth rooting for.  Over the next 4 days, we here at Sport will take a look at each bracket. 

Up first:  West Regional – San Jose

Kansas Jayhawks vs  Southern Illinois Salukis

#1 Kansas vs #4 Southern Illinois – Kansas is on a 13 game win streak, including an overtime win over Texas in the Big 12 conference tournament.  The Jayhawks are shooting over 55% from the field in the first two games of the NCAA tourney, including a 12 pt win over Kentucky (what in the name of Adolph Rupp is going on in Lexington?).  The Salukis are the strongest of the mid-major teams and if the defense can slow the KU guards, they have a chance.  Take the Jayhawks.

Pittsburgh Panthers  vs  UCLA Bruins 

#3 Pittsburgh vs #2 UCLA – Both teams won their first 2 games of the tourney, but neither are standing out.  Pitt has gone 3-3 in their last 6 games before the NCAA’s, including a 23 pt loss to Georgetown in the Big East tourney finals.  UCLA dropped its last 2 games, including a first round in the Pac 10 tourney to California.  When in doubt, go with the team who’s been there before.  Go with the Bruins in this one. 

And away we go!

Eric Maynor sinks the DukiesGreg Paulus, maybe you should have taken that football scholly to Notre Dame after today.  VCU’s Eric Maynor’s 22 points, including this basket with 1.8 seconds left, led the Rams in the upset over Duke 79-77 for the tourney’s first upset.  Maynor and Paulus, putting in 25 pts of his own, bumped and shoved each other the entire game, setting up an awesome point guard matchup to watch.

VCU fans, we’ve got your Rams t-shirts ready to go!
