SEC Adds Two: Mizzou and Texas A&M joins conference.

If the Southeastern Conference wasn’t considered the top conference for college basketball, they most certainly should be added to the conversation as of July 1st, 2012. The University of Texas A&M  and University of Missouri, will now compete with some of the best teams in the sport. "Celebrating A New Era" By: Eric SanInocencio One thing is for sure, recruiting...

Nerlens Noel being investigated by the NCAA

John Calipari’s latest number one recruit may have come into some trouble with the NCAA, as he is being investigated by a couple of  ”enforcement staff.” As of now, nothing serious or worth mentioning has come to light, and it looks like the NCAA may just be snooping around for no reason. Cindi Merrill and Frank Smith, assistant directors of the aforementioned enforcement...

Nerlens Noel, Shabazz Muhammad choose schools

ESPNU aired the college decisions for top recruits Nerlens Noel and Shabazz Muhammad on Wednesday, and this time John Calipari only landed one of the top two recruits. Noel picked Kentucky, while Muhammad went with Ben Howland and UCLA. Noel revealed his decision by shaving the UK logo onto the back of  his head. Quite the creative young mind. The fact that they didn’t feel obligated...

Mississippi State’s Rodney Hood transferring

The Bulldogs of Mississippi State massively underachieved this past season with the talent on their roster. Impressive freshman Rodney Hood cut more into the pain when he announced that he was transferring. He averaged over ten points per game and nearly five rebounds per game. His departure comes in the wake of a coaching change, from the recently fired Rick Stansbury to the newly...

Harrison Barnes, John Henson, and Kendall Marshall declare for the NBA draft

North Carolina potentially had five lottery picks on its roster this year, and with one already graduating, three more have declared early entry into the NBA draft. Harrison Barnes, John Henson, and Kendall Marshall are expected to go in the late part of the lottery, with freshman James Michael McAdoo also a predicted lottery pick. It would be interesting to see Stilman White start...

Ineligibility of Kansas State’s Jamar Samuels is a Disgrace

If you recall, Syracuse beat Kansas State in the Round of 32, but the Wildcats took the floor without senior Jamar Samuels, who was ruled ineligible. The forward accepted money from Curtis Malone, his former AAU coach, and K-State didn’t want to risk a retroactive punishment from the NCAA. That’s already ludicrous on its own—how does a player taking money from a former coach...

In a storyline that we seem to see far too often, Miami guard Durand Scott has been suspended indefinitely for allegedly receiving improper benefits.

Pat Knight verbally abuses Lamar seniors

You remember Pat Knight, the son of legendary coach Bob Knight. Well after that whole Texas Tech thing didn’t work out, Pat Knight made his way over to Lamar to take over as head coach. Nothing interesting has surfaced during his tenure, until now. Knight spent nearly nine minutes ripping the Lamar seniors for a lack of heart and effort, starting with him kicking a player off the...

Tom Gugliotta and Chris Corchiani ejected from NC State game

Former NC State stars Tom Gugliotta and Chris Corchiani showed up on Saturday to support the home team against Florida State, but they ended up getting too rowdy for referee Karl Hess’ liking. They left the arena to a standing ovation after they were apparently thrown out for heckling Hess, who told a security guard to do his bidding. According to John Clougherty, the ACC’s supervisor...

A student at Alabama, now identified as Jack Blankenship, pulled off what has to be the best distraction ever in the history of sports. While at his second Bama game ever, against Florida, Blankenship brought a blown up picture of his face. Mind you, this is no ordinary face. The picture below doesn’t need a thousand words.

Oftentimes in college football you’ll see a penalty called for twelve men on the field. Somehow on Thursday night Louisiana-Lafayette ended up with half that on the basketball court; they got away with it. Officials failed to recognize that the Ragin’ Cajuns had six men on the floor for the final 21 seconds of the game as opposed to Western Kentucky’s legal five. ULL won the...
