By Adam Kilgore, in Denver
Just tipped in Denver. The crowd is late-arriving, but you can forgive them because it is 10:30 local time. The Temple band playing is "Sell Out" by Reel Big Fish, while Michigan State is going with "Spiderwebs" by No Doubt. Early advantage goes to Temple. I wish I had Steinberg's camera, because there's a tuba player in the Michigan State band with a better mustache than the Monopoly man.
And Teddy Valentine is here. As the Washington Times's Patrick Stevens just said, "This day just keep getting better and better."
