North Carolina Tar Heels: most bipolar tourney resume ever

The head of Roy Williams must be spinning. His North Carolina Tar Heels are bi-polar. Their NCAA Tournament profile is the most multiple personality disorder, schizophrenic and every other psychological-disorder-that-I’m-incorrectly-diagnosing-and-poorly-analogizing that we’ve ever seen in college basketball. The 10-6, 0-3 in the ACC North Carolina Tar Heels are much much better...

Sportz Assassin's Bubble Watch 2013 - SUCCESS!

Well, I did get all 68 schools right for the NCAA Tournament.  I don't do the seeds because (a) I don't have the time, (b) I'm not smart enough to figure that all out and there are many others who would do a better job and (c) it is damn near impossible.But I did get all 68 picked correctly, which is something for me.  I usually miss on at least one or two.  This year...

Fast Break: Kentucky's ongoing experiment

The most interesting ongoing experiment in sports is the one John Calipari is conducting at Kentucky. Calipari's hyphothesis was that the most important thing in basketball is talent, and if you have enough of it, you can overwhelm any other shortcoming. The more commonly held belief the "truth" was that maturity, poise and teamwork were just as necessary as talent...

Fast Break: Who's really No. 1?

Duke's schedule should be a case of masochism. What are the Blue Devils doing playing Kentucky (then ranked ninth), Louisville (second) and Ohio State (fourth), all in a two-week span? Asking for it, that's what. "The schedule at Duke is probably the reason you come to Duke," Mason Plumlee said. And yet the Blue Devils won all those games. It is Dec. 3, and Duke...

Maui Invitational: #9 UNC vs Chaminade

Now comes the first post-loss game of the season. As always, UNC's performance bears watching since how a team responds to a loss is perhaps one of the most important step in a team's development. The only caveat here is during the season there is usually two days or more to digest the defeat and invest some time in practice before facing the next opponent. UNC gets no such...

Roy Williams Tryout With the Texans is a Joke, Right? Perhaps Not.

Oh, what having limited cap space can do to a team. When the Texans released Jacoby Jones a couple of months ago, fans in Houston rejoiced. Many, because of his comedy of errors in the team’s playoff game in Baltimore. But for others, such as myself, because we had been hearing about Jones’ “potential” for five seasons. After the fourth, it was pretty clear he was never...
