Julio Teheran was aces Wednesday night, going the distance in a 1-0 gem that was awesome in its awesomeness. Maybe it's because we missed them in the offseason, but this Braves team is fun to watch right now. Good times. Evan Gattis homered and went 4-for-4.

So did anything happen in Knoxville this week?

Gang, remember the mailbag.

JAY: Barry, just back from the land of green jackets and pimento cheese sandwiches. Watching the best in golf play at the best course in golf is amazing.

Bubba Watson is one of 17 golfers to land multiple Masters title. He has won two of the last three, including Sunday's march to par snooze-fest that was more Memorial than Masters. Watson has delivered twice on golf's grandest stage and likely punched his Hall of Fame ticket. Read that again.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — When we started Sunday at Augusta National, we knew the afternoon would be filled with fireworks for fans and firing squads for the frontrunners.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Jay Greeson breaks down Sunday's final-round action from the Masters at Augusta National.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Jay Greeson breaks down Friday's second-round action from the Masters at Augusta National.

Jay, do you see hypocrisy with the Paul Finebaums the Dick Viatles and the Jay Bilas of the world who continue to preach that the NCAA and colleges are taking advantage of athletes by not giving athletes money and yet these kind of guys wouldnt be making the millions they make if not for college athletics, Would a Jay Bilas be willing to share in his personal revenue with college athletes, not they he should, but he should quit pointing fingers and throwing stones while living in an expensive glass house. Your thoughts?

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The Masters is about so many things.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Jay Greeson breaks down Thursday's first-round action from the Masters at Augusta National.

As the clock flips past lunchtime among the East Georgia pines, the field at this Masters has colored the scoreboard red early in this first round at Augusta National.

Gang, hit us with your questions for the mailbag. Giddy-up. We will be doing more Twitter (@jgreesontfp) than normal the next few days.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Last time we were here, we celebrated Adam Scott ending the Aussie curse with an elongated putter in a spring Georgia rain that washed away a career of frustrating shortcomings for the man and a lifetime of agony for his country.

The basketball programs at UConn are the men's and women's champions. That's pretty impressive.

UConn cuts down the nets. Kentucky limped to the finish line (and the foul line — more on that in a moment). We enjoyed the Dance. We forgot the regular season.

Kentucky is awesome. UConn is clutch.

The Tennessee Titans released running back Chris Johnson today.

Gang, excellent week and thanks as always for the questions. We'll kick around a bunch of this craziness on our radio show Press Row later today with our man David Paschall on ESPN 105.1 FM and simulcast here on timesfreepress.com.

We have one word for you cats: Mailbag.

Gang, remember our mailbag. We have a few open spots and always enjoy the back and forth that Fridays allow.

Wow, and with that the first full pitch of the baseball season has started.

Gang, hope this finds you well and well, finds you. We will be welcoming new Auburn coach and universal fan favorite Bruce Pearl on Press Row today around 4:30 p.m. If you are outside the power blasts of 105.1 FM, you can listen to it right here on timesfreepress.com. Check it out

Wow, that was fun. College basketball dealt us a weekend of nip-and-tuck, down-to-the-wire moments that reminded some of us why we loved college basketball back in the old days of teams starting four upperclassmen. You know, like 1994. Dinosaurs and everything.

JAY: We're off and running, this column and the season.

With the recent decision by the regional director of the National Labor Relations Board in Chicago that Northwestern University football players are employees of the school, we asked local labor law expert Bill Trumpeter about some of the specifics of the decision.

Gang, we have an open spot or two in Friday's mailbag. Whatcha got?

The entire sporting world knows Peter Ohr today.

Gang, remember the Friday mailbag.

We spent a lot of quality time discussing the Tennessee Volunteers basketball team on "Press Row" on ESPN 105.1 FM this week. A lot of time.

We spent a lot of quality time discussing the Tennessee Vols on Press Row on Monday. A lot of time.

It's less than a week from opening day for your Atlanta Braves.

The Madness did not disappoint. From the flurry of upsets that ended everyone's billion-dollar dreams roughly 30 hours into the tournament and with barely a third of the games being played.

Amid the net-ripping fun of the current NCAA tournament, allow me to pick nits.

From the "Talks too much" studios, it's go time.

Before we get going today, we must tip the Tam O'Shanter to Grateful Dog, who at the horn whipped in two one liners Wednesday. The first one was about someone's finger roll and tippy-toed the edge of the in-bounds line, but the second — "If I was a fan of mixed signals and mood swings, I'd still be married" — was well-played indeed. Nice job sir.

Are you needing help with your bracket?

And with one eye-popping line across the ticker, Auburn basketball was reborn.

Hey look, college basketball has started. Great. As expected we'll go wall-to-wall college hoops today. It's that big.

For a lot of us, college basketball started Sunday. That's a good thing and a bad thing. The entire sport has become defined by its postseason, and in some ways determining the champion should define a sport. But that pursuit has made every other step to the top of the ladder as meaningless as a practice game.

Overrated: Colorado. An eight-seed seems lofty for a team that went 5-5 in its last 10 games and is 9-9 since Jan. 12. That screams double-digit seed.
