Josh Jackson, the #3 ranked recruit in the ESPN 100 and #1 rated player on Rivals.com has announced via Twitter that he will be attending Kansas in the fall. After losing several players to the NBA draft and graduation, Bill Self must be happy. Check out Josh Jackson’s hoops mixtape after the jump. The kid can ball. Read the rest of this entry »
For the next few weeks, basketball fans will be forced to tune into truTV to catch the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament games not being aired on CBS, TNT, or TBS. Basketball fans are cracking jokes about the network on Twitter, and truTV doesn’t appreciate it. They even replied to one of my tweets:
This isn’t a random occurrence. Whoever is running the @truTV twitter is firing back at any and all smack talkers on the internet: Read the rest of this entry »
Selection Sunday is upon us and the field for the 2016 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is set. These are my predictions for March Madness:

I don’t have sound on my computer but I can only assume R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” is playing in the background of this Kerwin Roach throwdown. Check the video after the jump. Good lord. Read the rest of this entry »
Remember that video of just about everyone in the state of Kentucky standing up and saying they were declaring for the NBA Draft in 2015? You won’t see anything similar this year. The NCAA Men’s 2015-2016 talent pool is lacking, and it’s apparent with the parity we’re seeing in college basketball right now. Read the rest of this entry »
As ESPN reports, there will be multiple rule changes to NCAA Men’s Basketball for the 2015-2016 season. While the shot clock dropping from 35 to 30 seconds has been the most discussed change, there are a few more tweaks this season that will change the game as we know it. The rule changes to the 2015-2016 season are as follows: Read the rest of this entry »
He’s already got that Duke starting 5 haircut
The #3 ranked SF on the ESPN 100 recruiting database for the 2015-2016 season announced on Monday that he will be attending Duke University in the fall to play for Mike Krzyzewski and the Blue Devils. After losing 4 starters (3 to the NBA draft, 1 to graduation) the Blue Devils desperately needed a strong recruiting class if they were going to have any chance at defending their National Title. With Ingram’s signing, Coach K’s incoming freshman class now ranks #1 overall in NCAA Basketball. Read the rest of this entry »
Every November I put out an article with my NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four, Championship, and All-American predictions. I’m easily the most accurate Champion predictor in the game. Check the report card:
2012: Kentucky Correct. Everyone else loved UNC that year.
2013: Louisville Correct. Indiana didn’t live up to the hype.
2014: Arizona Wrong. C’mon, no one saw UConn coming.
2015: Duke Correct. I told y’all not to believe the Kentucky hype.
While our blog doesn’t go back further, I also correctly predicted UConn in 2011, Duke in 2010, UNC in 2009 (that was a no-brainer, though), and had Memphis in 2008 when Mario Chalmers stole that prediction from me with Kansas. How do I do it? I watch a shit load of NCAA Men’s Basketball. We’re talking 100+ games a year (not including the 65 tournament games). I also watch (or go to) the McDonald’s High School All-American game every year. Then there’s the HoopMixtapes on YouTube of the incoming freshman. Using all that information, I make an educated decision and pick the teams I like.
But this article? This is for shits and giggles. It’s way too early as too many things can change with players going to the league and/or transferring, but you should probably read it anyway (and read the updated version here). Read the rest of this entry »
