And let's all start w/ being happy that Mark Titus is writing again, so we get things like this to read :)

Just can't watch the NBA anymore. NBA was good in the 90's - early 2000's. Now, bleh

Airboy?

I just found out at drinks/supper with friends tonight.  If Pearl holds to it, he will be fired.

If this had happened just 30 days ago I could have gotten my $3,500 back for scholarship tickets.

More like the Womens BB program and free As from the Afro-American studies department for all.

So Alabama basketball last night had a rough night.

They were losing to #14 Minnesota, when a scuffle broke out under the basket with about 14 minutes to go.  A bunch of the Bama players leave the bench to get involved in the scuffle, and as a result, the entire bench gets ejected, leaving them with the 5 guys on the floor.

Then one fouls out

Then one gets hurt

'Bama plays the last 10 minutes and change with 3 guys on the floor and no subs.

And while down to only 3 guys, actually cut into the lead and had it down to 3 points at one point.  They outscored Minnesota 30-22 while playing short 2 guys.

Crazy...

One of the strangest games ever with ranked teams.

Paragraphs like this are why I'm thrilled college hoops Mark Titus season is here again

Quote
The soft rims of Maui are so legendary that I could easily be convinced that they’re a Dean Smith Horcrux, and that North Carolina’s national title hopes depend on it first making a pilgrimage to Hawaii to harness Smith’s power. Hell, those rims have brought so much joy to my life that any article about Adam Morrison’s 2005 Maui Invitational — 86 points in three tournament games, including 43 in the semifinals! — reads like erotic literature.

Moo U got beat by UNC-G??  Did State just not play defense or did UNCG just hit everything they threw up?

no idea - I'm in Columbia w/ Bayonet Jr's soccer team and haven't seen anything about the game.  State wasn't expected to do much this year anyway during the transition to Keats' system, and beating 'Zona a few weeks about might've been an awful thing since it raised expectations way beyond where they should be

Things are not looking good at either Moo U (NCSU or Auburn)

"NC State starting point guard Markell Johnson has been suspended indefinitely for "a violation of the Student-Athlete Code of Conduct,'' the school announced Saturday.  Johnson missed Saturday's 81-76 loss to UNC Greensboro, which picked up its first win against the Wolfpack in 11 attempts and just its third win in 62 games vs. ACC opponents."
