The 1981 NCAA Division I Basketball Championship Game took place on March 30, 1981 between the North Carolina Tar Heels and Indiana Hoosiers at The Spectrum in Philadelphia. The matchup was the final one of the forty-third consecutive NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championshipsingle-eliminationtournament — commonly referred to as the NCAA Tournament — organized by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and is used to crown a national champion for men's basketball at the Division I level.
Because of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan by John Hinckley, there was talk of postponing or cancelling the title game; but once NCAA officials learned that Reagan had made it through surgery and would survive his injuries, the game was played as scheduled. Howard Cosell criticized the NCAA for not postponing the game due to the Reagan assassination attempt.
The 1980–81 season was the last before the NCAA began sponsoring a championship for Division I women's basketball. All future NCAA men's tournaments and championship games would include 'Men's' in their official titles.

Madness is a self-titled compilation album by the British ska/pop band. It was issued primarily for the North American market in order to capitalise on the top 10 success in the United States of their hit single 'Our House' from the 1982 album Madness Presents the Rise & Fall, which had not been available there.
Madness features six tracks from The Rise & Fall album, three from the 1981 album 7, one from the 1979 debut album One Step Beyond.. and two single a-sides. The 1980 album Absolutely is not represented on the compilation.
The album contains every UK single from 'Grey Day' to 'Tomorrow's (Just Another Day),' with the exception of 'Driving in My Car,' which has never been issued on any US compilation. However, the album was also issued in Japan where 'Driving In My Car' replaced 'Rise & Fall'. Drupal 8 crm.
Rolling Stone's J. D. Considine gave the album a rave review, saying that it introduced the best tracks from Madness's earlier albums to an American audience, while leaving out any songs with insular British cultural references. He praised the uniquely British 'economy and wit' of the melodies and the sobering lyrics, remarking that 'Madness offers up all of the clichés of traditional British entertainment - but with a twist, revealing the hard realities behind the soothing illusions.'
