    Ainge's drive was a great tournament play and there's nothing wrong with remembering it under the heading of "Today in sports: "

    For the few who haven't seen it, I believe there's still a clip of it on YouTube.

    Yes, every March we're reminded of icon games/players/plays from past NCAA tournaments - unfortunately for the haters, one of those iconic plays is John Wooden Award Winner Danny Ainge's end-to-end game-winning drive versus Notre Dame in the 1981 Sweet Sixteen that propelled BYU into the Elite Eight.

    30+ years later, it's still considered one of the all-time great plays in NCAA tournament history.

    Of course we never hear about 2004 or 2008, blah, blah, blah. You see, YOU think that a National Championship or Danny Ainge's 8 second drive to glory are not relevant because they happened too long ago. Okay, for the sake of the argument, I'll agree with you.

    In sports, the only thing that is relevant is what you did THIS year. And the only reason that is relevant is because we don't know what the future holds. Unless of course, you're done...

    So, by that standard, Utah football, blah, blah, blah. Utah basketball? You got it!

    Which by the way is a shame, because this year's Ute team played with heart and finished with a bang. Finished too soon in my opinion. But finished, all the same.
