    Kentucky fan thoughts

    Seems to me the guys calling the game (ESPN) added to the ideas of what happened to Wheeler and Washington. If my memory serves me correctly, they said something like "Wheeler was slapped down, no call" then the replay crew pulled up the incident and sure enough Wheeler just wasn't graceful...

    Randomly meeting a Vol Stories

    I was fortunate enough to meet Reggie White at one of his daughters AAU basketball games and he invited me to sit with him and his wife and we just talked through that game and most of my daughter's game also. He was very interesting to talk to and very gracious. We talked about our faith, our...

    NCAA: 2020 year didn't happen

    Great news!! I guess this means that all television contracts, advertising and merchandising sales will go to the participating schools and the NCAA will have to downsize?

    Scholarships for seniors?

    So, if the NCAA is going to allow seniors to have another year of eligibility, which could mean another year of full or partial scholarship. Is the university on the hook. It's always great to hear the NCAA commercials where they brag about all the money they are responsible for in terms of the...

    Why Didn't FSU Go To The SEC

    Here is what CBB had to say about it: "I felt that it was too difficult to win through the SEC to win a national championship," Bowden told Finebaum. "I felt like our best route would be to go through the ACC and that did prove out to be correct. I don’t know if we could have made it through the...

    Facilities

    We usually travel to Clemson once or twice a year with our swim team and I really don't get. Their facilities are just ok. The stadium looks like two sets of concrete bleachers stacked on each other (outside facade lacking) and their indoor practice field looks like it is housed in a large...

    College Hoops without One and Done

    There is no concern for college basketball by the NCAA or the Universities they represent. The only concern is for the continuous flow of money into those institutions. Having elite players in college, even for one year, furthers that goal. Remember, the NCAA is only a governing body...
