Old Dominion’s Crazy NIT Buzzer-Beater Adds To Murray State’s Misery (Video)

One of March’s maddest moments came from the NIT of all places. Old Dominion is moving on to the NIT semifinals after a thrilling 72-69 win over Murray State. The game was exciting from beginning to end, but it’s the finish that has to be seen to believe. With just seconds to play and having to inbound from underneath its own basket, Old Dominion looked like it was going to have...

Dick Vitale’s weirdest, wildest Selection Sunday moments

One of the great traditions of the revealing of the NCAA Tournament bracket is the annual bubble rant from Dick Vitale.  It seems that every year, Vitale becomes incredulous over one team (if not more) that have had their bubble popped.  It’s almost become a bit of a running joke to guess whose cause Vitale will champion each year. The annual tradition: Give your predictions...

Murray State should be blowing bubbles

The next 48 hours will be filled with “bubble talk” by NCAA college football fans and would be bracketologists. “Last four in” “first four out” will be popular terms as the merits of the final teams are debated by the…Read more →

Murray State exposes painful flaw in NCAA tournament selection process

What might go down as the most exciting game of all the 2015 conference tournaments – not to mention the result with the most unfair of consequences, and the reason I’m writing this column – happened this past weekend in Nashville in the Ohio Valley Conference tournament. With 3.2 seconds left, Taylor Barnette of Belmont hoisted up a deep fadeaway three that caught nothing...

Try This Murray State Solution: Settle It On the Court

I love March Madness. There’s nothing like watching teams from small conferences battle it out for the opportunity to earn a spot on the big stage. However, I’m not suggesting that the process is perfect. Every year, it seems there’s a No. 1 seed that gets upset in the conference tournament and misses out on a chance to play in the Big Dance. It could happen again this spring...

Solving the Conference Tournament Conundrum

Belmont and Murray State staged the best game of the entire season Saturday night in the Ohio Valley Conference tournament final. Unfortunately, the wrong team won. Murray State had a perfect record of 16-0 in conference play this season. Yet, CBS will probably be showing America a room full of dejected Racers next Sunday when the NCAA tournament field is announced. Them’s the...

An Ohio Valley Upset Creates a Not-So-Great Debate For Murray State

The first automatic bid to the 2015 NCAA Tournament was handed out on Saturday night in Nashville, Tennessee. The way in which the Belmont Bruins earned their way into the field of 68 could not have been more dramatic. Belmont and its opponent, the Murray State Racers, basically traded basketball haymakers for 40 minutes. The two teams either tossed in one outrageously long three...

John Lollar of Murray State has highest leg kick in the history of leg kicks (VIDEO)

@JDrumUK Murray State pitcher John Lollar has the highest leg kick in the history of baseball on any planet.  It’s science.  He doesn’t have any tendons or ligaments and his body is composed of 40% elastic.  Fine, that’s a lie.  40% elastic? You bought that? Seriously, watch this leg kick and then try to replicate it.  Warning: have plenty of ice and an orthopedic surgeon...

Murray State Pitcher Has One Of Most Insane Leg Kicks Ever Seen (Photo)

John Lollar is more flexible than you. Lollar is a pitcher for the Murray State baseball team, and he’s ascended to relative baseball Internet fame thanks to what he’s able to do with his left leg, specifically during his windup. Jeff Drummond was able to capture Lollar’s crazy windup on film, and it should put yoga instructors (not to mention Orlando Hernandez) to shame. Lollar’s...

Murray State Pitcher John Lollar’s Leg Kick

Nolan Ryan had a high leg kick. Marichal had a distinct kick. Goose Gossage extended a leg. Orlando Hernandez lifted his leg a little bit.

As for his overall pitching abilities…he’s still working the kinks.   Murray State’s Game 1 starter, John Lollar, made for some interesting photo opps...
