    The long-shot chances of Fresno State in this week’s Mountain West Conference Tournament just got a little longer as Robert Upshaw will be suspended for its entirety. Upshaw, a 7-foot freshman who was a highly-touted signee for the Bulldogs after he de-committed from Kansas State, is averaging 4.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 16.4 minutes…

    Brad Waldow

    We all remember the West Coast Conference semifinals for St. Mary’s on Saturday. You know, the one where Brad Waldow had one of his front teeth knocked out against San Diego?

  8. Why Indiana should be rooting for Louisville this week

    Mar 11, 2013, 3:41 PM EDT

    St John's v Louisville

    For me, perhaps the most interesting part of attending the mock selection committee back in February was learning that the idea of there being an “S-Curve” used to slot teams into specific seeds is simply not true. There is no S-Curve. Instead, what the committee uses is a seed list which is exactly what it…

    J.L. Lewis, D.J. Brown, Xavier Jones

    The Western Athletic Conference has been conference realignment cannon fodder for the past two seasons. The WAC lost one its top team to the Mountain West (Nevada) and even lost its commissioner Karl Benson to another mid-major (Sun Belt). But despite being the laughing-stock of conference realignment, the 2012-2013 WAC regular season was surprisingly good,…

    Grantland has out a niche for themselves in the blogging world by creating “brackets” to settle arguments that have no need to be settled but could go on for hours and hours in the right setting. They did one to determine the greatest character in the history of The Wire. They did one to determine…

    Indiana v Michigan

    We see it time and time again: in the age of social media and youtube and viral videos, it’s common to see a relatively unimportant occurrence blow up into a full-blown ‘scandal’, with judgements and reactions dominating Facebook newsfeeds and twitter timelines. Sometimes it’s funny, as evidenced by the great responses to Deandre Jordan’s brutal…

    Zeke Marshall, Chauncey Gilliam

    The MAC tournament has one of the ugliest brackets you’ll ever see. Explaining the twisted branches of that tree would be pointless and boring, so just look at it and know that you don’t have to care until the first round – played at campus sites – is mercifully completed and we get to the…
