  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

I think the outrage now is aimed at the half-assed investigation. Just like the "innocent until proven guilty" flag that so many are so eager to wave (and rightfully so), every allegation deserves a worthy investigation and, unfortunately, the article and evidence we've seen so far would indicate that this did not happen.

And yes, unfortunately when such a sham is shoved down the public's throat, even those who have been found innocent (in this case Winston) get mired in the mess. And the "if we all knew the truth" part? That's what the investigation is supposed to uncover.

I'm guessing they're factoring in character issues and the fact that he's already committed.

One thing I'll say about Coach K: his post-loss pressers are, generally, exceedingly classy. He talks X's and O's and how the other team deserved to win, all without trashing his team.

Jabari Parker, we hardly knew ya.

Or in intervals and really keep teams off balance. Take advantage of Craft, Scott, and Smith, Jr.; three very pesky defenders.

Never enjoyable to lose, but today was more encouraging than discouraging.

The dude has played very, very well at an international level, while a lot of college players plateau pretty much right at the point where they're recruited. I know sometimes it looks funky, but he knows how to score. Some guys have it, some don't.

For the older folks on the site, think of Jay Burson.

Wouldn't this slow our offense down ridiculously?

It's hard to imagine it any slower than it is at various stretches currently.

Comment 14 Mar 2014

I'd be very surprised if Russell does not start. He can play both guard spots, which gives you a ton of flexibility in your rotations.

Comment 13 Mar 2014

It will definitely happen. The number one seeds this year, especially, will be pretty watered-down or unproven (Wichita State). It's not impossible to imagine an upset when a team that's given the number one seed undeservedly or a 16 seed undeservedly get together.

The B1G tourney is going to be carnage. I always worry about the disparity in the refereeing between our conference play and the NCAAs, but I think most B1G teams will be more than happy to play a non-conference foe. I've rarely been so happy with a 10-8 record.

She's on her way out. He'll choose another clown. It's tough to find able captains who would want to take over a sinking ship.

The Curie loss in the first round of the playoffs was poetic justice, though, and a break for the IHSA.

Great Dean Smith article. Talk about an amazing life in basketball.

That Frank Martin/Pitbull tweet is fucking priceless.

I'm yelling "Timber!"

Oyster, I don't see a sarcasm font. Can this be true?

Still no offer, though, per Gene.
