The ultimate hunch play in 2021 postseason play has come from a singular source: The Unfiltered Podcast Brought to you by BetUS.
How else can you explain what is going on with teams connected to hosts Warren Sapp and Gary Payton.
Get in on all the action your heart desires at BetUs.
Sapp spent the bulk of his Hall of Fame career as a defensive lineman with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
And who would make a run to the Super Bowl and dethrone the Kansas City Chiefs other than Sapp’s former team led by Tom Brady.
Oregon State Surging
Now, an unlikely run is on its way to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
Oregon State, where Payton played while attending college, defeated Loyola-Chicago on Saturday in the Sweet 16 to continue its stunning streak.
Payton’s Superb College Career
Throughout his four-year career at Oregon State, Payton became one of the most decorated basketball players in school history.
During his senior season in 1989–90, Payton was featured in the cover story of Sports Illustrated as the nation’s best college basketball player.
He was a consensus All-American, a three-time All-Pac-10 selection, and both the Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year in 1987. He was the MVP of the Far West Classic tournament three times, the Pac-10 Player of the Week nine times, and named to the Pac-10’s All-Decade Team.
He was elected into OSU’s Sports Hall of Fame in 1996. He was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013.
Beavers Unlikely Roll
These Beavers were 11-11 at one point and looked like anything but a threat to go to the postseason.
However, they went on a run and won the Pac-12 Conference Tournament earning an NCAA berth.
The 12th-seeded Beavers are 20-12, having won nine of their last 10.
In the tournament, which is being played exclusively in Indianapolis, Wayne Tinkle and Oregon State have defeated fifth-seeded Tennessee, fourth-seeded Oklahoma State, and now the eighth-seeded Ramblers to gain the round of eight.
Payton, Sapp, and Dawn Lupul addressed March Madness with former NBA player T.J. Ford earlier this week on Unfiltered and the show can be watched by clicking below:
