College Basketball

Tennessee Fans Wanted to Keep Bruce Pearl and Fire AD Mike Hamilton

Tennessee fired head basketball coach Bruce Pearl on Monday, a move that we heard was in the works from before the tournament began. The Vols’ 75-45 hideous loss in the first round of the tourney to Michigan made the execution much easier, as did the comments from Tobias Harris after the game saying the team…Read More

VCU Proving it Deserved a Tourney Bid

When the NCAA Tournament brackets first came out, the at-large selections that drew the biggest criticism were VCU and UAB. Even Dick Vitale, who sees more positive signs in college hoops than a third grade math class, ripped the selection of VCU. Before the tourney started, I said on twitter that VCU had to be…Read More

Big East Had Many Good Teams but No Great Teams

It was widely acknowledged that college basketball was down this year.

Terrence Williams Criticizes Louisville After Upset, Angers Fans

The Louisville Cardinals have the dubious distinction of being the highest-seeded team to be upset early in the NCAA tournament. The fourth-seeded Cardinals were knocked off by 13-seed Morehead State 62-61 on a three-pointer by Demonte Harper. There’s no doubt the embarrassment has been felt by the coaches, players, and fans, and of course the…Read More

Kansas Has Elite 8 Gift-Wrapped, Will Need to Keep Focus Early On

After just one day of games — sorry, I refuse to count the play-ins — the 2011 NCAA Tournament has already featured a ton of excitement.  The coverage has been brilliant, there have been games decided on last-second lay-ups, another decided a last-second three-pointer, and upsets that were nearly impossible to forecast.  Despite having not…Read More
