Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
Is it my imagination, or does Coach K look more and more like the Blue Devil mascot every year?
He does. In that picture, in particular, he really looks like the mascot. Check it out:
I wonder if Duke is intentionally making slight changes to their mascot's face each year to increase the resemblance.
Temple's John Chaney... looked most like his schools mascot up until his retirement. Since then it has in my opinion been a dog fight between Coach K, and Bo Ryan.
Here is the best link I can find to compare the two...
Just take the mask off ans see the Mascot's true identity.
I've always thought that Jim Tressel is the spitting image of a hairless nut, but that may just be a coincidence.
I wish I could see it, but there's an ad in the way.

Smart you are.
It's probably because facebook is blocked at work but I'm not seeing anything - can you copy and paste it?
It's not a real facebook posting. It's just a joke, and a mediocre one at that.
Sorry man but the writing is way to small, I cant make out whats been posted
I love how he tries to act mature and all high n mighty in his interviews and then has a facebook page on which he comes off like a arrogant little girl.
You know that's fake, right?
The listed friends show Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, etc., that should have been his first clue that it was fake.
But I'm ready to kick Jim Nantz in the groin after reading that schlop.
Jim Nantz is a total asshole. How long did it take him to come up with his "Fab Fabricated" witticism? WTF does that mean anyway? I wanted to smack the TV when I heard that.
Kudos to Clark Kellogg for pushing back on him.
I've never been able to stand Nantz's non-stop, transparently disingenuous, sanctimony about the NCAA tournament. He's more than happy to overlook corruption, dishonesty, and hypocrisy by coaches and athletic departments, but he goes overboard in criticizing players involved in scandals. I wanted to throw up when he said the Fab Five ruined Michigan basketball. Was it really just the players? What about Steve Fisher and the coaches who all knew what was going on? Of course, he can't mention Fisher because that might hurt ratings for an upcoming game. Or make the NCAA angry.
I'm not sure that I would say that Kellogg really "pushed back" on Nantz. He kind of offered a limp alternative view of the Fab Five, without really negating what Nantz said. And he spent half the broadcast kissing Nantz's ass about everything else.
you're a really cool hip white guy who does the opposite right, because everyone knows only cool, white hip guys do the exact opposite of what you typed.
I am and do those things you typed and still dig the Fab Five and hold no conditioned responses about the Fab Five due to the aforementioned things you typed.
Furthermore, I don't like Nantz even though Nantz and I may share a worldview which you typed! Crazy! On top of all that, the Fab Five may not do any of the things you typed that I do, yet, I still think they were awesome.
Of course, I cried when the 76 Wolverines lost to Indiana and when the guy with the one letter next to his name that graduated from Michigan lost to the guy with the other letter next to his name. I was 10.
stereotypically he now has a new wife 20+ years his junior--because he's so good-looking. Nantz is such a prig that compared to him the members of Augusta are open-minded and hip.
Nantz subscribes to the traditional announcing view that coaches are blameless. It's not Steve Fisher's fault that players took money under his watch, or Brian Ellerbe's for having zero leadership, or Tommy Amaker's for not getting past the NIT. It's the fault of those no-good kids.
I think Kellogg pushed back about as hard as a commentator could on a play-by-play guy. He let Nantz blabber on about Jalen and then said something to the effect that Jalen's comments showed a difference of socio-ecomonic upbringing b/t him and Hill and how that played out in the minds of 18 years at the time. He then said that you basically have to take it for what it is and - I think remember this part excatly - "you move on."
Given that they were on live national TV and Nantz outranks him at CBS, this amounts to telling Nantz that he was clueless and should STFU. There was a pause that showed Nantz knew what had happened. He then backed down and moved on.
Admittedly, I am reading a lot into what Kellogg said. However, there is no way that Kellogg is going to actually call-out Nantz on this. I mean what did you expect him say - "You know Jim, I can't believe you said that. You are an elitist ass-hat. You either didn't pay attention to what Jalen actually said, or you have a serious comprehension problem. Are you so sheltered that you don't get how Jalen looked at Grant and saw what his life would have been like had Jalen's dad been around the way that Grant's was? Don't you get how that must have felt to an 18 year old kid? Or did Jalen's baggy shorts just scare your lilly-white ass to the point that it just doesn't matter. By the way - Jalen Rose has waaay more money than you do. Take that to your country-club and smoke it!" That would have made Kellogg the best ex-broadcaster of all time.
It likely took him as long as the combined NBA careers of the Fab Five to attempt humor......pity it failed after so much hard work and research into actually being witty.
Thank god I was at the game live and didn't have to listen to Nantz and Kellogg during the game!!! Watched the game on DVR last nite, and listening to those douchers made my ears bleed...Billy Packer was very irritating and extremely anti-Michigan as well, especially in the Fab Five days. At least he is off the air, and not paired up with "Nantcy" any longer
you could taste the disdain when he called the Fab 5 'that bunch'. Clark K was at least diplomatic when he talked about Jalen and Grant. Nantzy was dead silent however when Clark called Jalen, '...a good role model.".
Hit Control (ctrl) and the plus sign (+) at the same time. if that doesnt do it, keep doing it.
I'm calling B.S on this.. Look at his friends list... Uhhhhh I don't think so.
it's real...I Found it on FAcebooKE.
As someone said yesterday, as a bsketball announcer, Nantz is a good golf announcer.
Good stuff for Coach K - nice to see he knows who to be friends with.
