    Mike Aresco

    Speaking at the inaugural American Athletic Conference media day down in Memphis, AAC commissioner Mike Aresco didn’t hesitate sharing his feelings about properly compensating collegiate athletes. “We will not pay players,” Aresco said. Ok, then. There’s more, from the AP: “We will not establish an employer-employee relationship. That’s not what college sports is about, and it…

    The Big Lead

    It’s been 17 years since he was relevant, so I won’t judge you if you don’t remember that Victor Page, not Allen Iverson, was the MVP of the 1996 Big East Tournament. And I’ll forgive you if you’ve forgotten that he led the Big East in scoring in 1997, before leaving for the NBA as…

    Fox Sports 1 bought up the rights to broadcast the new Big East’s games heading into the 2013-2014 season, and they managed to bring aboard a couple of the biggest names in the business to call those games: Gus Johnson and Bill Raftery.

    (MORE: Watch all of this year’s #POSTERIZED’s here) Kethan Savage is a sophomore at George Washington, and while he managed to play his way into the starting lineup late in his freshman season, Savage is still a name that you may not recognize if you’re not a GW diehard.

    Wisconsin Badgers head coach Bo Ryan ecourages his team against the Syracuse Orange during the first half of their men's NCAA East Regional basketball game in Boston

    Wisconsin fans have a tradition.

It’s one of those dumb, corny traditions that makes college and college athletics just so, so awesome. On Saturday, with…

  10. Marshall Henderson met Texas A&M’s president (PHOTO)

    Oct 15, 2013, 3:31 PM EST

    @ClayTravisBGID

    Marshall Henderson spent a good six months as college basketball’s bad boy, a trash-talking, hard-partying, three-point slinging free spirit that somehow managed to stay out of major trouble while leading Ole Miss to the SEC tournament title a season ago. In other words, he was the Johnny Manziel of hoops. Maybe on a lesser scale,…

  11. Andrew Wiggins’ shoe contract could be worth $140-180 million

    Andrew Wiggins

    One of the most interesting, and underreported, aspects of Andrew Wiggins’ decision to enroll at Kansas instead of Florida State, North Carolina and Kentucky had little to do with basketball and everything to do with shoes. Wiggins came up as a Nike kid. He played for the CIA Bounce, which is affiliated with Nike. Huntington…

  14. Is Louisville’s back court of Russ Smith, Chris Jones dynamic or combustible?

    Oct 15, 2013, 9:54 AM EST

    Russ Smith

    The college basketball newcomer with the most pressure on him entering the season is Andrew Wiggins. That is pretty much indisputable at this point. When people toss around comparisons to folks like Kevin Durant and LeBron James, you know you’re in a different stratosphere as a prospect. Second on that list is debatable, but one…

    There may not have been a player in the country that had a more difficult offseason than Tom Maayan of Seton Hall. He nearly went to war. Literally. You see, Maayan is an Israeli national, which means that he is subject to the mandatory three-year term of service in the Israeli Defense Force. Just days…
