Some You Want More Teams?

Every so often the notion is raised that the NCAA Tournament should be expanded to include more teams. This year’s bearer of that particular torch is Jim Boeheim, head coach at Syracuse. Boeheim is contending that greater parity necessitates expanding the tournament to include anywhere from 3 to 10 more teams who would most likely [...]

Big News for UNC

Big News Item #1

UNC forward/center Tyler Hansbrough will return for his sophomore. And this is not some off the cuff answer to some dumb reporter who asks it during the Final Four and thinks that any player who might jump to the NBA next season is actually thinking about that facing the biggest game [...]

UNC Women in the Final Four

Hey, Kara Lawson, how about them apples huh?

For those that do not know Lawson is one of the studio analyst for ESPN who said she had predicted UNC would win the regional at the start of the tournament but on the eve of the regional final said Tennessee has too much experience and was [...]

What is a Mid Major?

I had a commenter on my last post ask why George Mason was considered the first mid-major to make a Final Four since 1979 when schools like Utah and UNLV had been there and in the case of the latter actually won the title? It turns out the commenter had a legitimate point, at least [...]

UNC Women vs Tennessee

So the “bracket of death” culminates this evening in Cleveland with the one loss Lady Tar Heels taking on perenniel powerhouse Tennessee coached by the women’s all time winningest coach Pat Summit. Although Duke beat these Vols by double digit earlier this year and Tennessee has had some bumps in the road due to injury, [...]

Got #1 Seeds?

Because the NCAA Tournament doesn’t. Billy Packer and Jim Nantz asserted at the end of the Florida-Villanova game that this tournament, at least through, the first two weeks, has been the greatest ever. I would tend to agree just based on the number of games that went down to the wire and the parity shown [...]

The Andy Katz Article, Part II

I have gotten some serious response on the Katz article I castigated here so much so I am going to examine the issue further. First of all, I think Katz basic premise was flat wrong and not because I refuse to acknowledge what Duke has done but because saying that Duke winning two games a [...]

Great Finishes

Aside from the Duke-LSU game, which in reality, was a horrible game to watch from the perspective of good basketball, two other Tournament games last night provided sensational endings.

In Atlanta, Texas and West Virginia played a classic. Texas led by 12 at halftime but West Virginia on hot three point shooting got back in [...]

Redick. Chokes.

LSU takes down Duke 62-54 in the Sweet Sixteen. J.J. Redick, the often proclaimed “greatest shooter in college basketball” hits only 3 of 19 and two free throws for a grand total of eleven points. Ding, dong the witch is dead.

[Update] In my post following Redick’s woeful shooting performance at Georgia Tech I wrote [...]

Andy Katz Has A Very Short Memory

ESPN.com’s Andy Katz has written an article where he asserts that Duke’s run of 9 straight Sweet 16 appearances is so impressive that only John Wooden winning 7 straight NCAA titles and 10 in 11 years at UCLA surpasses it. Katz cites the current level of parity in college basketball as the reason why this [...]

Considering Herb Sendek II

Now that NC State has been eliminated from the NCAA Tournament by Texas, the discussion begins in earnest about his future. In my previous post I, the non-State fan observer, moved myself off the fence concerning Sendek’s future(as if anyone really cares what I think, especially as a UNC fan) squarely into the “it’s time [...]
