Baston had a solid UM career. Quietly. I wasn't in AA by that time, but I dont recall him getting into trouble. Which was nice.

True. But his best shot was the put-back in the Final Four against that badass Illini crew.

Because male siblings tell interestiing stories......sometime in '88 we were hooping at Burns Park when Rice showed up with a few other guys. His crew (didn't recognize any of the others) basically cut into the que (2 or 3 guys had "next" ahead of Rice) and played a quick game. Rice took all the shots - makes from mid court. I'll never forget the sound of those chains. Effortless shot. They left with a handfull of girls who met them there during the game (no Palin, far as I could tell).
It was fun watching everyone play it cool while a future lottery pick fucked around with a bunch of bro's and neo-hippies.

None of Rice's shots touched the rim. At least that's how I remember the run in '89.
But it was difficult to double him because the team was talented enough to create offense when the plays broke down. Bullock and NotJustaShooter didn't always that luxury.

Erryone at Seton Hall looks like The Situation. Espcially when he rocks the fake glasses.

For some reason I thought The Magazine went out of print. Must be confused with The Sporting News - which I actually enjoyed. As an aside, I'll buy a domestic beer for anyone that can remember The National.

The nature of a QB controversy is important. Brady vs Henson is a "high class problem." "Sheridan vs Threat" is merely a problem. Here's to to hoping we have something closer to the former.

I can testify about the NC representative. Johnsons in Siler City is a weird place that is only open at select times during the week. Sometimes the old man shuts her down with the line out of the door at 12pm. Having to go to Siler City is a drag in and of itself, but that cheeseburger "all the way" is the truth.

Dude likes that spot near the top of the arc. Driveway hoops.

I'm not a Duke fan - and K has always seemed a bit sanctimonious - but I know plenty of people who are relatively connected to the University. He's been successful to the point of not needing to tolerate players who will endanger the program. As mentioned earlier, K likely kept Sulaimon in the doghouse until the story was formalized.

First year under Rich Rod was a disaster, spread offense needs a QB much faster.

Too many favorites. Top 5: 1) Omar; 2) Wallace; 3) Bubbs; 4) Bunk 5) McNutty. But this could change during my next binge.

Hallelujah. Pass the Tylenol.

This. And the story becomes the poorly chosen string of words. Welcome to the new world of media. Clicks, baby.

Will they or won't they? Shows always jump the shark after the hookup. Hopefully these guys draw things out for a couple seasons.

But did they under inflate their pucks? We have to get to the bottom of this.
|1 week 6 days ago||I understand your point. And||
I understand your point. And I'm not a Bobby Knight apologist, but you might be overthinking it. By saying "I will NOT go 8-10" he could just as easily mean "I don't want to accept this level of mediocrity, so why should you?" That's a message that all coaches and leaders deliver in some way or form.

Maybe. Maybe not. But I'd rather this thread didn't go much longer than my post.

Glenn Edward "Bo" Schembechler, Jr. was born in Barberton, OH.
Gary Moeller? Lima, OH.

Knight was successful in his time. His approach wouldn't be effective with millenneals. At all. Which is about the time he started his broadcasting career.

I love this blog and needed to read the article, as well. I'm just not sure I would have described Dave Brandon as "a piece of shit human being."
I don't dispute the content of the article or its assessment of Brandon as an executive, but this final scud could have been a little less caustic and personal. He has a family, etc.

Shocked "Chill" Clark didn't commit to Rocky Top.
Agree - I went to a couple games in Knoxville. Had a blast. Loud stadium. Saw them make a miracle comeback against Arkansas in '98.

I was playing this for guys in my office and we all shared the same opinion. And none of us were Bobby Knight fans.

It has to suck to be a Pacers fan. Indiana was also capable of routing the Lakers in the Finals that year. Both Eastern teams were playing at a high level at that stage of the Playoffs.

Day 1: complete paperwork, physicals, waivers
Day 2: "let's go around the room and mention something that nobody else knows about you" then some light stretching, run a few laps around the goal posts
Day 3: (some variation of this):

It often seems like opposing fans/political parties/religions/neighbors love reading stories like this. Helps separate us from them. People really are the worst. I'm gonna go crank up some Morrissey and pout.

I'm going to assume there are more players with known or highly suspected concussion issues that aren't asked to leave programs. Otherwise I'm down with your post.

I'm not giving up on Michigan Man. Serious. Worked too hard to get there. Worked hard while I was there. It's a standard.

He also mentioned wine. A bit of a dandy, this one.

To be fair, unless your name is Bench or Piazza, .220 is pretty standard for a backstop.
