Maryland’s Dez Wells playing himself onto NBA Draft bubble

When we first heard Maryland and Rutgers were coming to the Big Ten, many of us were like “meh, whatever.” Yes, Maryland basketball has a rich history, but they have been pretty down lately. Entering this season they had missed the past four NCAA Tournaments. A true ACC power in the late ’90s and early ’00s, the Terps had really fallen fast since the 2002 national title...

Michigan St. Spartans must develop closers mentality now

The Michigan St. Spartans have now safely escaped the dreaded #8 vs #9 game with a very convincing win over Ohio State tonight. Sparty showed some ability to close, although still nowhere near as much as we’d like to see. In our latest bracketology we have the Spartans as a #7 seed, the same exact seed they had when State reached the Elite 8 in 2003. The Michigan St. Spartans...

Projected Manchester United starting XI vs Tottenham Hotspur

Time for another Manchester United starting XI as the Red Devils face Tottenham Hotspur in a critical match for determining who will finish in the top four. United remains in fourth place, but they must pick up these three points on Sunday if they are to remain in line for that all important Champions League spot. Another year missing out on Europe is totally unacceptable at Old...

Chris Collins year two: PROGRESS! or Progress??

Chris Collins “said all the right things” yesterday following his team’s rather decisive defeat at the hands of a desperate Indiana Hoosiers team. IU never really let NU have a chance Thursday night, as the Hoosiers were playing with their NCAA chances (and perhaps even Tom Crean’s job security) in the balance. The Hoosiers played with the sense urgency that Illinois should...

John Calipari seemingly gives nod to UK vs NBA team analogies

If you’re a fan of a NCAA Tournament bubble team, be upset if/when your bubble bursts on Sunday. However, don’t get too upset. Remember the Kentucky Wildcats are just going to DEMOLISH everybody in the end anyway. All year long, John Calipari has heard his team compared to not just opponents at the collegiate level, but also theoretical opponents at the professional level. Since...

Christian Laettner heard tales of Michael Jordan RUTHLESSNESS

Christian Laettner joined director Rory Karpf and ESPN Films VP and executive producer John Dahl to preview the ESPN 30 for 30  “I Hate Christian Laettner” and answer questions from the media this week, and it was epic. Hands down the best media conference call ever. He was asked about Michael Jordan and what is like to play with MJ both at the height of Jordan’s powers and...

For Kentucky Wildcats, SEC Tournament is meaningless

Like making out with somebody at a bar on St. Patrick’s Day, the SEC Tournament (although fun and exciting) is essentially meaningless for the Kentucky Wildcats. At this point UK is only competing against themselves and with themselves. Whether they get upset by arch-rivals Florida later today, or they run the table in Nashville, they’re still the NCAA Tournament‘s #1 overall...

Champions League race: Man United in limbo, Arsenal FC a lock

According to the latest Soccer Power Index projections via ESPN FC, Arsenal seems to be a near lock to get into the UEFA Champions League. SPI gives the Gunners, currently in third place in the Premier League table with 54 points, an 84% chance of being in the top four at the end of the season. Manchester United can go either way, you can proverbially flip a coin on it, as they...

Manchester United vs Tottenham match preview

This Sunday’s game between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur should be more fascinating than the previous meeting at White Hart Lane. It won’t be hard to top as that one ended goalless. The winner would be decided by any small mistakes made by the two amazing goalkeepers David De Gea and Hugo Lloris. The line-up, from Sports Bank Contributor and emerging journalist Anand...

Mike Thomas is Illini sports biggest problem; not Groce or Beckman

Illini fans have the pitchforks out right now; as they should. Most of that anger is currently directed towards Illinois basketball Coach John Groce, but the main target should be Athletic Director Mike Thomas instead. It’s understandable that the angst is more so for Groce, but that doesn’t include the bigger picture. The team failed to show up today for their traditional...

Anthony Davis Pelicans playoffs prediction looking good

Anthony Davis is no stranger to making big guarantees. At a summer USA Basketball event, he predicted that his New Orleans Pelicans would make the NBA playoffs this year (podcast here).  That prediction is looking good right now; New Orleans is currently in the #8 slot in the Western Conference. He also referred to Beyonce as “his future wife.” (audio of this here) Davis...

Rob Gronkowski has an “interesting” bowling team name

Rob Gronkowski is pretty much football Ryan Lochte; I think we’ve established that. Gronk is a lot more interesting and fun in small doses; not with the non stop Rob Gronkowski exposure that accompanied the Patriots Super Bowl run. Of course, Gronkowski isn’t as interesting or as funny as he used to be (we’ve covered why that is here), but he still makes bowling more interesting...
