    Mark Emmert

    Between the ongoing lawsuits brought about by former college athletes such as Ed O’Bannon and Sam Keller, and the almost daily perception hits taken over transfers and other major issues, this offseason hasn’t been particularly kind to the NCAA. With this being the case, NCAA president Mark Emmert is in search of possible solutions that…

    DavidStern

    As Kentucky waits on the decisions of star underclassmen Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Terrence Jones, and Doron Lamb (though one could probably guess the end result) chatter is picking up about NBA commissioner David Stern and his comments about the NBA draft age limit.

  12. Don't mess with Mike Miller? Good idea …

    Aug 14, 2010, 9:40 PM EDT

    True story: When flying back from Mexico on a senior class trip, I was stopped at customs for over an hour because officials did an extensive search of my bag and my papers. They didn’t find anything, but they had to check. Turns out there was a drug dealer with the same full name and…

  14. Izzo nixes Cavs, staying at Michigan St. 'for life'

    Jun 15, 2010, 7:59 PM EDT

      And there was much rejoicing in East Lansing. After nearly two weeks of speculation, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo announced Tuesday that he’s passing on the chance to coach the Cleveland Cavaliers. As an added bonus for the Spartan faithful, he added this nugget: “I’m pleased to say I am here for life at…

  15. LeBron likes Izzo, but does it mean anything?

    Jun 14, 2010, 11:57 AM EDT

    Good news, Cavaliers fans: LeBron James would “100 percent” endorse Cleveland hiring Tom Izzo. So that’s bad news for Michigan State, right? Not necessarily.

  16. Take it from Pitino, NBA jump not worth it

    Jun 10, 2010, 4:19 AM EDT

    Everyone knows the cautionary tales of college coaches who dared venture to the NBA. Rick Pitino, John Calipari, Mike Montgomery, Lon Kruger all took their lumps and returned to the NCAA.

  17. Izzo smart to not kill Cavs coaching rumors

    Jun 7, 2010, 5:55 PM EDT

    Of course Tom Izzo likes the limelight. It’s crucial to building a top-flight program. But I’m getting ahead of myself. As rumors continue to swirl around Michigan State’s coach being lured by the Cleveland Cavaliers (LeBron James?), there aren’t many details to further the story. The Cavs are interested, but haven’t made an offer. The…

  18. Izzo to the Cavs just (baloney)

    Jun 7, 2010, 12:43 PM EDT

    More rumors of Tom Izzo to the NBA popped up Sunday. This time, Izzo’s supposedly interested in the Cavaliers job. Right. File those under the “I believe it when I see it” category. Izzo has more reasons to stay at Michigan State than to leave. It’s that simple. But even if a new challenge –…

  19. Over/under on Calipari NBA rumors?

    May 17, 2010, 10:55 PM EDT

    John Calipari can’t leave Kentucky for the NBA. What would we do for offseason college hoops news? That’s hardly what Big Blue Nation wants to read, however.
