Nolan Richardson: An El Segundo Son

By TheOutlawSixx, published on Aug 14, 2012

Yes, a movie based on the NCAA legend is in the works. It seems a natural choice for a movie with films such as Remember the Titans and Glory Road preceding it. Glory Road if you don't remember, was based on the 1966 championship winning Texas Western team that would later become UTEP. The movie dealt with coach Don Haskins and his all-black starting lineup that would beat Adolf Rupp's Kentucky powerhouse team. Nolan Richardson himself attended Texas Western and was coached by Haskins himself. And with the racial barriers that Nolan busted through on his way to his own NCAA championship... (more)

No. 6 Ohio State vs. No. 8 Arkansas ALLSTATE SUGAR BOWL – The 5 suspended Ohio State players who won’t start serving their terms until next year because the NCAA wants the money/ratings/revenue from their Sugar Bowl appearance will be taken to the hog pen.

And The 2010 Heisman Goes To....

By Deborah Horton, published on Dec 13, 2010

Cam Newton of course. There is no doubt that Newton will win the trophy. As soon as the NCAA decided to say he had not violated the rules, he was absolutely going to be the winner and everyone knew it. Tonight's ceremony is merely a formality.

Not everyone agrees that Newton should win. There are some Heisman voters who did not vote for him, but not enough to change the outcome. Those who did vote for him fall into two categories. Those who say that because the NCAA did not rule him ineligible, he gets their first place vote based on his stats. They don't say that they are voting... (more)

Pay To Play

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 5, 2010

...who are always looking for ways to skirt the rules. The story just broke yesterday on Kenny Rogers' "allegedly" trying to get close to 200 grand to get Cam Newton to come to Mississippi State to play football. But the story has been around for a lot longer than that, it's just taken the NCAA this long to start really doing something about it.

Allegedly, Cam Newton met Kenny Rogers for the first time when he went to tour Mississippi State for the first time. Allegedly, Kenny Rogers went to the athletic program at the school and told them it would take almost 200 grand to get... (more)

We're Number 1!

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 13, 2010

In a mock look at the BCS rankings that are to come out officially on October 17, that mock look has the Boise State Broncos ranked #1. This is of course based on the games thus far and really has no bearing on what things will look like in a few weeks after schools like Ohio State play the toughest part of their schedule, but for the media this is enough and will be enough when the real rankings come out to beat everyone in America over the head with their BCS busting team Boise State.

What these media heads don’t realize is that Boise State doesn’t bust up anything. If they were... (more)

Perfect Record Lost in College Basketball

By JJFCPA, published on Dec 4, 2009

...won for the first time against the ACC since the match up was started 10 seasons ago. With 6 victories against 5 losses, the Big Ten gets bragging rights about which is the superior conference.

Both conferences have glorious histories of success during the regular season and in the NCAA finals. For many years, they each have had perennial powers like Ohio State, Michigan, Indiana, Duke and North Carolina who all have won the Final Four tournament. Each has one or more championship flags hanging from gym rafters memorializing the success of the past. However, when it comes to... (more)
