Random Thoughts on the NFL Draft

Let it be known that I watched a good portion of the NFL Draft’s 1st Round.  And had I been at home and not at someone else’s house I would have made better use of my time.  Here are some of things that caught my eye.

It was six hours for 32 picks. Six. Freaking. [...]

Evaluating UNC Early Draft Entrants

Hat tip to Carolina March for this article which evaluates the previous 14 Tar Heels to declare for the NBA draft early.  Basically the evaluations are made based on whether the player in questions made a mistake or not going early.  Among those who are said to have made a mistake leaving early are: J.R. [...]

If You are a Junior Why Not Declare?

UVA’s Sean Singletary and Clemson’s James May tossed their names into the NBA draft but neither plans to hire an agent or do anything to jeopardize their amateur status.  So now they can go through the workouts and draft camps to get a measure on where they might fall and what they may be missing [...]

Roy on the NBA Age Limit

From ACC Now:

“The NBA is not our partner; they can act like that all they want to, but they see college basketball as competition,” Williams said. “And every rule they make is what’s best for them. They don’t make rules for the good of the kid; give me a break.

“The rule that [...]

Now We Can Talk About Next Year

Now that Brandan Wright has decided to head for the NBA we can take a look at what this team will look like when practice opens up next season. Right up front I will state that I think UNC should open the 2007-08 season as the #1 team in the country. They will have the [...]

Sources: Wright to Declare[UPDATED x2]

Update #2: It’s official. Wright is putting his name in the draft BUT is not hiring an agent, at least not yet anyway. Roy said it was likely he would not withdraw.

Update: UNC has scheduled a 4 PM press conference for today to announce Wright’s intentions.

According to Draft Expess the announcement will be [...]

The NCAA Really is Clueless

I honestly have never been able to figure out why the NCAA is completely incapable of nuance. The powers that be in Indianopolis are set to hand down another edict, this one a complete ban on the use of text messaging by coaches during the recruiting process.

Now, I understand the concerns, the text messaging [...]

Is Today Decision Day For Wright?

April 20th was indicated by Roy as the earliest possible day we could get some indication on whether Brandan Wright is staying or going.  Given that news like this usually breaks 12-14 hours ahead of the actual press conference it looks like it will not be today.  Also add to that the fact the Buckeye [...]

Vivian Stringer Gets Paid

According to the Newark-Star Ledger Stringer has inked a deal to write her autobiography:

Rutgers women’s basketball coach C. Vivian Stringer earned countless fans last week when she stood up to radio shock jock Don Imus.

She also earned a book deal

Wow, nothing like a hometown paper to make you sound like a [...]

Winthrop Rents Movie I Saw in College

Let me take a moment to put on my UNC Greensboro cap since that is what the degree says and point out that Winthrop has hired assistant coach Randy Peele to head the basketball program. Peele replaces Greg Marshall who finally got a clue that his star had risen high enough to get the heck [...]

The “ACC’s Annual Drubbing of the Big Ten in Basketball” Schedule Released

You see, that is a much more descriptive and accurate title than calling it a “Challenge” that is unless you are referring to anything a Kelvin Sampson coached team is doing.  It seems like it was challenge for the Hoosiers to do anything remotely productive on offense last season, just ask UCLA.  From the ACC:
