and goes out like a lamb.”

“Et tu Brute?”

Thanks to William Shakespeare and the play “Julius Caesar” we’ve all heard of The Ides of March. The story goes, in 44 BC a seer told Julius Caesar that his downfall would come no later than the Ides of March (March 15th). Caesar ignored him and later joked with the seer “The Ides of March have come.” The seer replied, “aye, Caesar; but not gone.” Caesar then attended the meeting of the Senate at the Theatre of Pompey, and was murdered by as many as 60 conspirators.

Gaius Julius Caeser (July 13, 100 BC – March 15, 44 BC)

Caesar:
Who is it in the press that calls on me? 
I hear a tongue, shriller than all the music, Cry ‘Caesar!’ 
Speak; Caesar is turn’d to hear.

Soothsayer:
Beware the Ides of March.
– Shakespeare

NOTE: We don’t like college basketball. We don’t like college sports.
Student athletes are taken advantage of by the university system.
College sports are a distraction and school rivalries cause division.
Corruption, payoffs and bribery are just 3 of the problems.
(see “pointshaving”, “Cheating” and “academic fraud” for more)
REMEMBER “THE FIX IS IN!”

And if you think it’s just 4 coaches and 3 agents, YOU ARE MISTAKEN!
