Why did ESPN have Magic Johnson working last night’s Michigan State-Indiana game with Dickie V. and Mike Tirico? Because that’s what you do in mid-February to make a #1 vs. #4 much more important. The Hoosiers won, 72-68, and now have the inside track to a Big Ten title. Who, besides dorks at Indiana, give two ***** about a Big Ten basketball title? Yeah, you get to hang a banner and come back to campus 20 years later for some stupid awards presentation at center court. By the way, why’s Magic acting like a dick to Dickie.? The guy just wants a kiss. (You know who cares about Big Ten basketball titles? This dork.)   You know who cares about Big Ten titles? This guy. Been working out, bro?   In Spring Training news, watch where you park when Giancarlo Stanton takes BP.   Odds & Ends:     As for the Boston College student section at last night’s game against Maryland… (via ‏@gamblingkings)   Finally, we shut it down with a look at the Post and it’s amazing sports cover.

The Vitale Cup: DeCourcy charges down the standings

I began this contest with the idea of handing out an annual tongue-in-cheek award to the website which comes up with the worst pre-season top-25 college basketball poll. We can all take ourselves a little too seriously sometimes, so I figured I would call the award the Vitale Cup, named after one of my favorite announcers and a man who definitely doesn't have a problem taking...

Michael Jordan 50th birthday was way overdone

The NBA and the media cannot move on from Michael Jordan. This was never more evident than the last seven days when the majority of stories were surrounding Michael Jordan and/or his 50th birthday. Ironically, it was a decade ago at the All-Star Game in Atlanta, that the NBA had a special halftime celebration to salute Michael Jordan, in what was his final appearance in the midseason...

With the odds stacked against them, the Hoosiers came up bigger than ever

This game was supposed to be about Michigan State. At least that’s what we were led to believe. This was the Spartans chance to take control of the Big Ten race, to make a case for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and to do so in front of their beloved hero, Magic Johnson. Nobody, it seemed, wanted the Hoosiers to win this game. Few believed they could. Not the broadcasters...
