I will be honest here – I am so inured to the culture of corruption, and Monty Python’s Black Knight caliber of willful and idiotic denial…I didn’t think anything UNC scandal related could shock me anymore. Then I read this, and you should as well: Prepare to be disgusted. Horrific doesn’t even begin to describe [...]
This is a great article from Dave Telep. I have a feeling Gott is facing some of these issues. When you recruit the McD AAs you have to be very good at managing egos. A few points Telep made. I asked the staffers at Elite 24 who’d been part of the game for the past [...]
So what fun would college sports be if there wasn’t a bit of officiating controversy? And why should the Final Four be any different? But in this case, despite downplaying the screw job handed to them in the closing moments of their semi-finals loss to Louisville, it seems to us that Wichita State has a [...]
Thirty years later, the images are still etched into my mind and those of most Pack fans old enough to remember. The team in red, the huge underdogs, hugging each other with tears streaming. Fists and/or index fingers raised to the sky to indicate that the Pack truly was number one in the land once [...]
Nice little write up re: ’73-’74 team on ESPN’s Fandom Blog this morning. Figured we could use something positive today even if it was nearly 40 years ago… It was a far different time in college basketball, before the 3-point line and one-and-done teenagers opting for the NBA. Dunking in games was outlawed and only [...]
Syracuse and Wichita State have already punched their tickets for Atlanta. Michigan and Florida going at it as I type. So far the Wolverines are taking the Gators’ lunch money and kicking them in the nads for good measure….41-17 at the under 4 timeout of the first half. Duke and Louisville go at it a [...]
Apparently, this is the round where Miami takes a giant dump at midcourt. Sheesh.
While the potential losses of players from the NC State program due to graduation, turning pro or even transferring will be heavy, the roster for next year will definitely see an infusion of talent into the program that will pave the way for a solid squad that will be the core of a potential ACC [...]
10:30pm Update: Joe Giglio says Brown, Warren still undecided on NBA future Kim Banks, Brown’s mom, said she would be in Raleigh this week to talk to her son about his future. She also refuted the CBS report. “I’ve seen the rumors,” Banks said. “I don’t know where they get that from. He hasn’t made [...]
Fred Hoiberg’s bunch giving the Buckeyes all they can handle. Here’s to more competitive basketball (though Marquette/Butler was epic), and two blue losses today.
