    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Here's a look at what's trending today on the web!

    March Madness

    It's March Madness time. We're sure a lot of you have already filled out your brackets, and we've compiled some of the big headlines going into the tournament.

    First off, Arkansas, don't feel bad about not getting into the dance. The state of Texas didn't have a team in the tournament for the first time since 1977. When you consider just 3 years ago they had 7 teams, that's pretty bad.

    Also making headlines for not getting in the tournament was last year's champions in Kentucky. It gets worse for Big Blue Nation. They were the number 1 overall seed in the NIT. That means Kentucky gets home court advantage throughout the tournament. There's just one problem. Their home court at Rupp arena is being used for the NCAA tourney. So, the Wildcats will now play Robert Morris in Moon Township Pennsylvania in an arena one-sixth the size of Rupp. All this is happening while their main rival, Louisville, gets the top seed in Lexington. Ouch!

    Other great story lines include Ole Miss' Marshall Henderson who has now become famous for outlandish antics on the court, and one of the Underdogs in the tourney is Saint Louis University.

    The Billikens have endured a lot this year since the death of their former head coach at the beginning of the season. Last night, the team got stuck in traffic on their way to watch the selection show, so they stopped at a Best Buy in New Jersey to watch it there.

    "The Bible": Does Satan look like Obama in History Channel miniseries?

    Since it seems nowadays you can't watch anything on TV without some political undertone, this next story may not come to surprise for some of you.

    Many say a character that plays Satan from the new TV mini-series, The Bible, looks just like our country's president. The producers of the show said Internet chatter that their Satan character resembles President Barack Obama is "utter nonsense."

    Mark Burnett and Roma Burnett said Monday the Moroccan actor who played Satan in the History channel series has played Satanic characters in other Biblical programs long before Obama was elected president.

    The connection got widespread attention after talk show host Glenn Beck last week tweeted: "Does Satan look EXACTLY like Obama? Yes!" Beck tweeted on Monday that his observation was intended to be "funny, nothing more."
